Disco Royale was fortunate to be invited to provide music and a photo booth for the Nor Consult New year'sparty at Factory Luxe on January 18, 2019. We had such a grand time at this party, it was just too good to not blog about. Factory Luxe is nestled smack dab in the middle of the old Rainier Brewery, a landmark that anybody who's ever taken I-5 South from downtown Seattle, is f...

A lot of folks seem surprised when we ask them what they want us to play for their cake cutting. After all, it's not a dance, so what's the point, right? Well, the cake cutting is probably the most photographed moment in a couple's wedding. Both the professional photographer and the guests will be snapping pics of this moment for posterity, so there might as well be a smile on the...

The "Recessional" is the piece of music that gets played at the end of a wedding ceremony, when the officiant has the couple turn to their guests and introduces them as a married couple to the world for the first time. At this point the ceremony is over, and it's time for the party to begin! Here are a few songs we enjoy playing for this happy transition.

Disco Royale had the pleasure of being the music provider for the wedding of Kailyn & Enrico Angella this past July at the ever-photogenic Sodo Park. The couple exchanged vows on a  spectacularly beautiful Sunday in Seattle, and once the sun's warm rays faded, we got to do what we do best, which is make a happy group of people even happier through the magic of music. The dance par...

  We have over 70,000 tunes in our music library. To put it into perspective, imagine a DJ's setlist that goes on and on, non-stop, for 191 days, 16 hours, 56 minutes and 20 seconds. That's how long it would take, as of this writing, to play our entire music library, one song at a time. Of course, by the time you read this, our library will have grown even beyond those numbers. Bu...

   On December 16, 2017, we premiered our brand new photo booth at the 70th birthday party of John Olson, at the Eastsound Oddfellow's Hall on on Orcas Island. The backdrop was a fun, outdoorsy scene that reflected the birthday boy's love of nature. Our Ace Photographer Rainy Olson took over 100 snaps with our brand new Canon T6 camera, which comes standard with the package, along...

In 20 years of playing music for weddings, we've seen a lot of brides dance with their dads and grooms dance with their moms. One thing it didn't take us long to realize is there are a lot more Bride-father songs than there are Groom-mother songs. But that's ok. Dancing with one's mother has almost always been a tricky proposition. But people, in general,...

"First dance" at a wedding reception has twofold meaning. First, there's the symbolic meaning it holds as the couple's first dance as husband and wife. Secondly, is the practical consideration of it being the "first dance" of the reception, signalling that the dancefloor is officially open. As such, it helps to play a tune that engages the guests and get the cr...

OK, time to be cheeky... Every wedding needs a bit of levity, and since your Uncle Jack from Way Down South isn't always gonna be ready to give the mother of all toasts, the bouquet and garter toss usually do the job quite nicely.  And the best part is, the music never needs to stop! Here are 40 of our faves:

Hey Ladies (bouquet toss) Beastie Boys

Christmas music can be problematic. The shlock factor is so high, and everyone, it seems has to get into the act of cashing in with a holiday album. But as in any genre, there are good ones, bad ones, and plenty of mediocre ones. I find the jazzy ones to be the easiest to digest, if only because jazz is, at least these days, one of the least commercial styles of music we have, so...
