Music adds extra energy

During cocktail receptions before formal seated dinner galas, usually there isn’t any music. If there is, most likely its low-key jazz. That wasn’t the case at a gala I recently attended.

House mixes of popular Top 40 songs, but without the lyrics, were playing in the background, but the sound was turned down low enough that you could talk to the person standing next to you.

Having the high energy music as everyone was socializing in their gowns and tuxedos before being seated added a lot of excitement to the first part of the evening.
