RIP George Michael. The music of Wham and George Michael will forever be a part of weddings in Charleston RIP George Michael. The music of Wham and George Michael will forever be a part of weddings in Charleston

Unbelievable! I actually just wrote a blog on Christmas Day in regards to some of the notable musicians that you might hear played by DJs at weddings in Charleston that have passed away in 2016. And now, I have to go back and update that blog entry as of late Christmas Day. The passing of George Michael continues what has been one of the darkest years in terms of the loss of celebrities and musicians. Being a former radio announcer who hosted numerous 80s request shows on air in Charleston, I can say we lost a huge part of the 80s with the passing of icon George Michael.

No 80s playlist would be complete without Wham's "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" or even "Faith" from George Michael's first solo effort. "Wake Me Up" is a great song to throw as the wedding reception is getting ramped and the fun is beginning. There have been numerous time where that song serves as a great dancing experience for the bride and her bridesmaids. Even "Freedom" puts a smile on my face and it's hard tot hink about not smiling when a lot of Wham's hits are playing. Sprinkling your wedding playlist with 80s music is sure to add another dimension of fun into the evening and make you and your guests smile. Out of respect for the super talented George Michael, this blog post will be dedicated to him as I list 15 of my favorite Wham / George Michael songs. Please take a listen and smile and remember some of the iconic 80s and early 90s hits and jot down some of those you'd want your DJ to play as you get ready for your wedding in Charleston.

Made Our Wedding Perfect

Before choosing Mike Bills as our wedding DJ, we looked at several companies and DJs and looked over the reviews for all of them. We chose Mike Bills because of the overwhelmingly great reviews he got and I am so glad we did! They were all spot on! Mike was great to work with, quick to respond, came to our rehearsal to do a run through with us.

Professional and Creative

Mike was kind, courteous, professional, and creative! We thoroughly enjoyed working with him for our destination wedding at Folly Beach. We gave Mike minimal guidance and he caught on to our "style" quickly and efficiently. Our guests are still raving about the music selections, and how they were a great balance of new tracks and standards for everyone to enjoy.
