My fiancee and I are planning to have a friends jazz quartet play our reception in January. We really like the sound of a nice, simple jazz quartet with a vocalist. A DJ just isn't our thing. But recently we started going through the types/genre of music to play and started wondering "Will anyone know how to dance to this music"? I personally have never attended a wedding reception with a jazz band or any live band, only DJ's. So this is new territory for us.
Any advise from others who have done something similar? I would venture to guess that most people (especially younger) are more comfortable danving to DJ Pop or Contemperary music. Should we be concerned if we have a jazz quartet play live music from the 30's-60's?
