How To Create The Best Possible Corporate Event Playlist

In the DJ business, we know how important playing just the right song at just the right time can be. Queuing up a song only for it to ruin the mood can be a nightmare, and that’s why understanding the type of event you’re at and the desired atmosphere is essential for any DJ. At DJ Cutt Entertainment, it’s our business to always know the right song to play. Here’s our Corporate Playlist, with our favorite songs for company parties and events.

There’s more to the music than just the party

Before we get to the list, however, it’s important to note that a DJ does more than play party music. If necessary, they can act as an MC for your event, while also designing the visuals, graphics, and lighting. Plus, a well-planned event will have music throughout the evening, not just during the dance party at the end.

There should be background music during breaks and intermissions. When calling up a speaker or announcing an award, a few seconds of music can help maintain the momentum or make a moment more dramatic. Without music to fill in the gaps, it can lead to awkward silences and make it easier for people’s attention to be diverted away from the main stage.

A corporate DJ understands all this, and at DJ Cutt Entertainment, we have plenty of musical options to ensure smooth transitions throughout the entire event.

Now, on to the list, which we’ve divided into key categories to make it easier for you to add or switch out for your own favorites.

High Energy Hits:

These recent pop songs may not be familiar to all of your guests, but they are infectious enough that everyone will enjoy dancing to them.

Can’t Stop The Feeling! by Justin Timberlake

This is one of those songs that you can’t help but sing along to.

Party In The USA by Miley Cyrus

This patriotic anthem is full of infectious fun, even if most of your guests likely won’t realize who it’s by (unless they have teenagers at home, of course).

Can’t Hold Us by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

Even if they haven’t heard this song before, it will get everyone energized for some fun.

What Does a Wedding MC Do

One of the most overlooked and important announcements the MC can make once the ceremony is over involves making sure everyone knows how to locate the restroom.

How To Plan Your Wedding Timeline

When it comes to planning a wedding, one of the most important aspects is the event timeline. This is necessary to keep everybody on schedule and make sure nothing gets lost in the shuffle. Here at DJ Cutt Entertainment, we understand the importance of preparation. That’s why we have our own online planning form for you to use with the specific times that we need to know. On your wedding day we will try our hardest to hit these specific events at the specific times. However, we approach the entire day with a commitment to flexibility, because we know many things can run late (or early) during the actual event. Often times, you won’t know what time the day should start but you have a hard out when the event must end. Our approach is to plan the timeline in reverse so that way you know exactly what time to start your event versus just trying to guess. Many venues have a hard cut off time that you have to be out by and a time that the vendors have to be out by as well. What time do weddings typically end? After DJing weddings the past 15 years in Oregon and Portland, the average end time is somewhere between 9:30 and 10. We have had weddings go till at least 3 in the morning but 90 to 95% of weddings and at this time.
