Q: Should I give ATLANTA RHYTHM & GROOVE a play list or a don't-play list for my event? A: We welcome your input on the demographics of your crowd and the types of music you think the audience will like. We also want to hear about any special requests, first dance, etc. We do not need a play list though. Songs are the "tools" of our job and just like you would not tell a plumber which tools to use, it's best to let us read your crowd and pick the songs that will make the party a success. Ultimately, a successful event is your goal. If there are some particular songs you don't like, make them "do not play unless specifically requested".
Q: What are some other vendors you recommend? A: We meet great vendors all the time, check back here for updates.
