Wedding Entertainment and Party Ideas

Here’s a fun fact; did you know the three most popular days of the year for marriage proposals are Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, and New Years Day? To be honest, we thought Valentines Day might have made the top three list.

As 2022 comes to a close, it’s time for reflection of the past, and excitement for the coming year, which may be one of the reasons there are so many engagement announcements and the need for wedding and event entertainment ideas.

Winter Holidays Add Romantic Backdrops For Engagements

Something about the soft snow falling, the warm glow of the fire and festive occasions that makes winter the most romantic season of the year and an ideal time to pop the question.

At Moments Notice and Company, our family of entertainers feel the holidays are all about creating new traditions and memories with family and friends making engagements during this merry season the best memory of all.

We will soon be ushering in a new year which comes with excitement and anticipation, and, of course, champagne. So, let’s toast to your engagement and start planning your big day.

Moments Notice & Company would like to be the first to share some memorable entertainment ideas for your upcoming wedding and events.

The Art of Celebration – The Journey

Wedding and Event Entertainment Ideas

We invite you on a celebratory journey to dance through the decades with the Moments Notice Band and The Jerry Barnett Orchestra. Let’s start at the beginning of the 20th century!

You may choose a theme from a particular decade or perhaps you are looking for a countdown of the past 50-100 years. No matter your preference, we will customize to fit your style and energy. Here we go.


Remember The Great Gatsby and The Cotton Club with glittering jazz and bathtub gin? Our dancers will be dressed as Flappers and musicians will wear Zoot Suits and will get you on the dance floor to the songs of yesteryear (The Charleston, Ain’t Misbehavin’ and Ain’t We Got Fun).


Lindbergh hops the Atlantic and the “Lindy Hop” was born. Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were Dancing Cheek to Cheek on the big screen. Gin Rickey drinks were all the rage as you dance to Them There Eyes and Puttin’ on the Ritz at The Savoy Ballroom.


The Jerry Barnett Orchestra will get you In The Mood when the band kicks off that famous sax introduction inviting everyone to Jitterbug on the floor. Glenn Miller, The Andrews Sisters (Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy) and The Big Band sounds of Benny Goodman, and Count Basie will have you swingin’ into the night.


If you want to Rock n’ Roll on the dance floor, we’ll entertain you with Hound Dog, The Bob, The Stroll, Great Balls of Fire and At The Hop.


Motown, R&B and let’s get this party started with Sam Cook’s Let’s Twist Again Like We Did Last Summer. Then let’s get serious on the dance floor with Wilson Pickett’s Land Of 1000 Dances. The Moments Notice Band will have you doing The Monkey, The Sprinkler, Mashed Potatoes, Monster Mash, and so much more.


Are you ready to go to Funkytown and enjoy the Disco Infero and Saturday Night Fever tunes with Stayin’ Alive, Dancing Queen and I Will Survive, and then sing and dance with us to Earth, Wind & Fire’s September.

Disco Balls - wedding party songs through the decades


Let’s flash back to the 80’s Disco with Journey’s Don’t Stop Believin’. Let’s not forget Bon Jovi’s Living On A Prayer, The Romantics What I Like About You, and Whitney’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody.


The 90’s brought us MC Hammer’s dance moves and Bollywood. Your guests will love a Moments Notice ultimate 90’s party with hip-hop, rap, and contemporary from Notorious B.I.G, Dave Matthews, and more. And let’s not forget Sheryl Crow’s All I Wanna Do Is Have Some Fun and Shania’s Man I Feel Like A Woman.


Are you ready to dance to It’s Getting Hot In Here by Nelly and Blink-182’s All The Small Things along with Misery Business by Paramore!

Let’s round out your special night with today’s Top 40’s by a few of our favorite artists for the perfect wedding and event entertainment ideas:

  • Lizzo
  • Beyonce
  • Bruno Mars
  • Dua Lipa
And the list goes on and on

We invite you to visit Moments Notice Band for a complete list of our song selections keeping in mind that we are happy to customize to meet your dreams.

And from all of us at Jerry Barnett Orchestra and Moments Notice and Company to all of you, have a wonderful holiday season and hats off to a healthy and happy New Year!
