Bonus question: What's your personal, all-time favorite song to play at weddings, and why?

“I love when the crowd ‘feels right' to me and I can play a final song like ‘We Are Family' [by Sister Sledge] or ‘I've Had The Time of my Life' [by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes]. I encourage the crowd to get in a big circle and sing along with the bride and groom in the middle. This really sends everyone out in a good mood and helps to solidify that ‘family feeling' as two different families come together.”
