So, my Mum gets married in a few weeks and she wants my band to play at the wedding reception. Our current repertoire, be it original or cover songs, is not entirely perfect for that occasion (lots of breakup songs ), so I was wondering what songs to play.

We have 2 guitars, bass, drums, male singer. If it's something not to extravagant we could just rearrange it. Something from the 80s would be nice since she's in her early 40s.

I would appreciate any recommendations!

I don't get why people want bands at weddings. DJ music is so much more fun to dance to.

Agreed. Unless you can do line dancing songs People like to dance to Boot Scootin Boogie if that helps.

Actually I've done like three weddings, and I've had to learn to play all sorts of shitty song. They kind of suck really, but they pay well.

Some wedding/function bands have websites on which they list their usual repertoire, that should give you some ideas
