Something fresh for cocktail hour playlists

Having killer cocktail hour playlists are important. Cocktail hour is a great time at a wedding. All of your guests get refreshed and mingle to some tasty beverages and treats from the kitchen and relax before your grand entrance.

One of the most common types of music played at cocktail hour is jazz and classical. We all know the common composers Mozart, Bach, Tchaikovsky. But what about something different for a change? Enter the Vitamin String Quartet.

This great quartet started in Los Angeles in 1999 and has become a sensation. Their biggest claim to fame is their arrangements of some of yesterday and today’s pop and rock hits such as Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” and more recently Lorde’s smash hit ‘Royals’.

The great feature to using a group like this for your cocktail and dinner hour is that it still sounds very regal and high end but with nuances of songs that people know and love. Take a listen to their arrangement of Royals.
