The Connection Song List

Thank you for downloading our song list! Which specific songs we perform at any given event is based on 3 primary factors:

1) Popular music that will create an unforgettable party. We “read” your crowd and all the age groups in attendance, calling songs accordingly. This is an artful skill at which we excel. Our reviews are due, in large part, to this expertise.

2) General musical styles that fit into your personal preferences, as well as specific feedback on your favorite songs. No two events are the same, so we want plenty of feedback so we can accommodate you.

3) What we perform best; songs that help to make us who we are.

This in addition to you choosing all the material for any formal dances. We’ll also learn two new songs for you that are not a regular part of our repertoire! (formality dances take precedence).
