Playlist – 20 July 2013 – Wedding

Yesterday’s wedding took place in Big Sur, at a location at which I’d never before performed called Point 16. I’ve included a link so you can see how lovely it is.


The gig was quite an elaborate endeavor. I provided sound systems for three distinct areas, and all told played music for seven hours. The playlist below covers what I played for the dance portion of the event.


“Proud Mary” was requested by a family member who explained that many of the guests came from Indiana for the event, which is where they “do it dirty.” He promised I’d see what he meant, and sure enough when I played the song everyone lay down on the dance floor and started rolling around. One definitely gets dirty doing that.


The guests had been bused to the wedding, and when the bus arrived to take them home I played a final song. Everyone went pretty crazy for Johnny Cash, and then formed an impromptu, and unrequested, conga line and left the dance floor, circled the property, and marched up the steps and onto the bus. Good stuff.
