Yenawine: "'Uptown Funk' by Bruno Mars, '(Watch Me) Whip/Nae Nae' by Silento and 'Shut Up and Dance With Me' by Walk The Moon." Bolton: "'Shake It Of' by Taylor Swift, 'Worth It' by Fifth Harmony, 'Uptown Funk,' 'Turn Down For What' by DJ Snake & Lil Jon, and 'GDFR' by Flo Rida." Are there any that you think are kind of cliched? Yenawine: "'Butterfy Kisses' by Bob Carlisle, 'Because You Loved Me' by Celine Dion and 'My Wish' by Rascal Flatts." Bolton: "I'd currently have to say 'The Wobble' by V.I.C." What are your fve favorite songs to play at weddings? Yenawine: "'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' by Whitney Houston, 'Signed, Sealed Delivered' by Stevie Wonder, 'Yeah' by Usher, 'Don't Stop Til You Get Enough' by Michael Jackson, 'September' by Earth Wind and Fire." Bolton: "'Don't Stop Til You Get Enough,' 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody,' 'Kiss' by Prince, 'September,' 'All Night Long' by Lionel Richie." Do you have any funny dance foor stories? Bolton: "Once, a groom re- quested 'Gin & Juice' by Snoop Dogg for the evening's last song. His mother was overheard saying, 'Bust a nut? That sounds painful!'" Randy Bolton & Heather Yenawine Co-owners of HAY DJ I've heard a few people say that they just make a Spotify playlist instead of hiring a DJ to save money. What does a professional DJ do that a playlist can't? Yenawine: "I can't discourage couples using an iPod or Spoti- fy playlist enough! The benefts of a DJ are tremendous, from reading the crowd and using their expertise to create the perfect vibe through cocktail and dinner to then creating the best dance party possible based on vast experience with dance tracks and knowing how to place them. Your DJ is also the individual who makes the an- nouncements and maintains the timeline and fow. It's absolutely worth the money. I've heard from friends that went with a playlist to save money that that was their number-one regret in retrospect. Music is too darn important to a great party!" Should the person who's paying for the wedding tip the DJ? Is that a thing that really happens? Bolton: "I am of the opinion that each vendor should be tipped if they provide excel- lent service at the wedding or reception. A $50 tip is generous and greatly appreciated. And a $100 tip is extremely generous. However, any tip is greatly appreciated by the vendors." Yenawine: "It's a really ap- preciated gesture that only happens at a handful of gigs throughout the year. If your DJ is great to work with leading up to the wedding day and creates a fantastic experience for you and your guests, show 'em some love!"
