In recent years, my blog has become one of the most popular wedding DJ blogs on the web. Ever since this iteration of my website went live in the middle of 2016, it's been my goal to produce valuable and compelling content for the modern bride and groom who are seeking the best wedding DJ for them on their most special day. Those same brides and grooms also are searching for information on how to get started in not only creating a playlist with songs about them, but also including songs that will get all their guests out on the dance floor. As streaming continues to grow in popularity, more modern brides and grooms have approached me in recent years with a lot of their music playlists created on Spotify. As one of the top wedding DJs in Charleston, it's always been my goal to stay up to date with how my clients acquire their music and listen to their music. I am proud to announce that Charleston Wedding DJ Mike Bills is now on Spotify.
Feel free to follow me on Spotify right now. Most all of the inspiration for my blog has come by way of my love of music. Music is what professional wedding DJs specialize in, and it's what they research on a regular basis. Over the past few weeks, I've been spending a lot of hours on going through a lot of the archived blog posts to refresh the pages. This project has been a bit tedious, because I'm not only refreshing the blog pages, I am also adding the playlist that was created inside the blog post within Spotify. At the time of the publishing of this post, 36 playlists have been added to my Spotify. When you click over to the blog post, you'll not only see the Spotify playlist within the post, but also the option to pull up the song in YouTube by clicking the link in the title of the song.
Spotify + Online Portal = Easier Music Selection
For as long as I have had an online presence, it's been my goal to provide modern brides and grooms who are very busy with their lives a way to get the planning of their wedding and music done in an easier way. Brides and grooms have careers and it can be a huge balancing act between "daily life" and "planning a wedding". Giving my clients the ability to log in from anywhere on their laptop / tablet to begin creating their memorable soundtrack to their big day is a HUGE selling point for my clients. Professional wedding DJs give their clients full latitude in which songs will end up being played at their wedding.
Spotify Playlists From Your DJ Provide For Greater Wedding Music Inspiration
I've been exposed to a lot of music in my life. I also spend a lot of time researching different music genres that I might be able to incorporate into my wedding playlists. The possibilities are simply endless when it comes to what you want during the different portions of your wedding day. There are countless directions you could go for your cocktail hour, and an equal amount of directions you could go for dinner music at your wedding. Most inexperienced wedding DJs don't put a lot of thought into cocktail hour and dinner music, but I think those portions of the evening are very important because they set the stage for what will be happening later in the evening. Every single song you request to have played by your wedding DJ should come with it a special meaning so that when you hear it, you smile and say "Wow". Since this process just began two weeks ago, all of my cocktail hour playlists have not been transferred over and added into Spotify, but please continue to check back in the coming weeks and months.

What Spotify Is Not The Substitute For As It Pertains To Your Wedding DJ
Spotify won't ever take the place of me being a wedding DJ. It's primary purpose will be to showcase my imagination and creativity as it pertains to putting together a modern bride and groom's wedding playlist. My playlists will continue to get created on Spotify and I look forward for you to begin following me as soon as we begin working together. You can also think of Spotify as another dimension, or another way for me to get my content out to you. All of my clients will also continue to have their own private online portal created on website at the time of booking so that can log in at their leisure and begin to plan and select all the key songs for their wedding day.

Motown music on wedding playlists is like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. You really cannot enjoy a peanut butter & jelly sandwich without all of those ingredients. You would think as we get further and further away from the 1960s that Motown would dwindle in it's popularity, but it's still a very solid favorite by a lot of my clients who are getting married in Charleston. For me personally, Motown just gives an awesome feel to a cocktail hour or dinner music portion of any wedding. It's got a sound all it's own.
