That’s it!  Musically, that includes everything!

And anything.  Anything that keeps people in the right mood.

Here we’re are, setting the perfect mood at a business networking meeting last summer.

Are you planing a party? Whatever the purpose of your party, it’ll be successful if the atmosphere makes your guests glad to be there.

Keep the music familiar.  Your guests will be happy to celebrate a festive event, somber to join friends at a quiet gathering, and everything in between.

Here’s a tip for planning your music.  Keep it familiar.
