When choosing music for your band or DJ to play during dinner, definitely pick background music. It can be Beatles, it can be show tunes, it can be opera, it can be classical, it could be Sinatra, but it should be something that fades into the background. If you choose something like Sinatra, some of your guests who like to get up and dance can do so without having a full dance set, and giving the rest of your guests a chance to rest. Definitely make it your flavor. If you love Beatles, go ahead, everybody else will enjoy it. There are lots of options for dinner background music, just remember to keep it light.
