In addition to bringing world class guitar entertainment to weddings throughout Long Island and New York, Long Island acoustics also specializes in providing the finest in Cocktail Party Music and Entertainment. Although the selection of music is similar there are some differences in song selection and in presentation.
Wedding Cocktail Hour music is more background in nature. As the title suggests it usually lasts for an hour and a most weddings there is more lively party music to follow. This wedding music is usually provided by a DJ or live wedding band. Your typical cocktail party will last several hours and the type and volume of the music should evolve throughout the party. Professional musicians who are familiar with performing at cocktail parties should be able to evolve with the party.
In most cases the cocktail party should begin with music that is very soft and background in nature . As the party progresses the music should progress with it and the musicians should begin to gradually pick up the pace. Cocktail Party music should also start out as instrumental numbers and again evolve to possibly include some vocal numbers along with a mix of instrumental music.The most important difference is your cocktail party music is not there just to provide background music but also to entertain your guests. At some point in the Cocktail party the focus of the party switches from greetings and conversations to the live entertainment. Volume levels are still critical as there is always a mix of people and personalities. For those guests who want the entertainment the music should be loud enough to enjoy and focused to a specific area of your party local. Professional musicians with the proper experience will know exactly the right volume and be able to read the room and adjust the song selection on the fly.

You know that everyone had such a great time and kept wanting you to play "just one more" so I really appreciated how long you stayed....you must have been exhausted after back to back bookings! My friends are still raving about you so thank you, thank you, thank you!

As you know, I had a very diverse group of people at the cocktail party and everyone was amazed at how you handled all those different requests.

May 28th, 2009 - Thank you for your wonderful performance at my wife's cocktail party last week. I was initially worried that hiring a guitar duo might be a bit too loud for the event. However, as soon as you started my worries were completely gone. You were great and even inspired me to pick up my old acoustic guitar.
