The Groove Control Experience features an eclectic mix of quality music from Maze, Light Of The World, Mighty Diamonds, Jungle Brothers, Esperanza Spalding, Brenda Russell, Rarus Riley, Mobb Deep, Minnie Riperton, the Jones Girls and Dizzie Rascal, among others.
Over the years I have DJed at countless weddings. To follow is a list of what I consider to be the 'top ten' songs in different categories. My compilations are based on a combination of things including the most popular in terms of the number of times each song is requested by a bride and groom, and my personal feelings about each song.
Perhaps the most significant factor in making my choices is the vibe the song seems to create when played for that all important first dance. Based on my extensive experience you can’t beat a bit of Etta for that auspicious moment which I always announce to wedding guests as something you will never, ever see again…the very first dance of the new "Mr and Mrs"!
