Playlist – 12 October 2013 – Wedding

October 13, 2013 Greg Gioia No comments exist

I DJ’ed a wedding in Berkeley last night, at the Bancroft Hotel. I hadn’t played there since May of 2009, and it was great to be back. It’s a great space, and the ballroom is pretty ideal for dinner/dance parties.


The guests were great. They pretty much hit the dance floor from the get-go, and didn’t stop until the night was done. They were energetic, too– lot’s of jumping and stomping, and everyone seemed to be having fun. The best part was that they were open-minded musically. As you’ll see from the set list I’m posting below, I had considerable freedom to explore genres and play some lesser known tracks. Even so, there was never a lull in the night, and from the point I spun the Kishi Bashi track, the dance floor stayed full for the entirety of the event.
