    Honestly I don’t even remember what music was playing during dinner, lol.
    I don’t think it was instrumental though. Pretty sure I just told my DJ I wanted quiet, slow/soft dinner music. But I know as soon as gusts were done eating they were hitting the dance floor even with just the soft dinner music.
    If you have a DJ just tell them the vibe you’re going for. If you don’t I think any instrumental or slow music is fine.

    I've always found jazz or instrumental beats or acoustic never disappoints for dinner

    We just played early-mid 90s top 40 pop rock. People got a nostalgic kick out if it, and it was easily talked over. I'm talking like Spin Doctors era

    For cocktail hour we had our dj play crooners/romantic oldies, and during dinner he played happy music you might hear on the radio, but nothing super dancey so people could eat without missing “their song”. I remember All of Me by John Legend and Ed Sheeran playing

    If you want instrumentals, check movie soundtracks and Vitamin String Quartet. Otherwise most djs will often play the Old Standards (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Doris Day, etc).

    We sent our DJ a lot of the music we liked, and she sifted through for dinner appropriate songs, as well as adding in stuff she knew that was similar.

    If you have a DJ, they can guide you... or better, you ask you what you like and select appropriately.

    Like Cassidy, I don't even remember. The DJ just played music at a low volume to provide ambiance.

    I'm giving the DJ control over that with the exception of the first song Be Our Guest - Beauty and the Beast

    We had an electric violinist who played hip hop, r&b and top 40 hits.

    We just played music from my hone on shuffle. No one really listens to dinner music.
