magic of holidays. Id
forgotten how great the holidays were as a child
and how wonderful this time of year is. As an
adult I no longer lie awake in bed fantasizing
about what presents I'll open on Christmas morning.
Once I outgrew that magical experience, Christmas
never had quite the same meaning as when I was
young. Then the focus shifted to the stress and
consumerism of the season.

the holidays have returned with a special significance.
My wife and I are setting a foundation of tradition
that will mark and define ourselves as a family.

how our children celebrate when they are grown.
Holidays have important meaning. Whether
you are cynical or the most celebratory, you cant

role in our lives. Winter holidays mark a reference

Setting the Right Holiday
together with friends and family for some holiday
what any holiday party is about. So what should
you do to create the perfect musical mood for
your holiday event? It depends on what kind of
hosting, what atmosphere youre
creating and whos
For a cocktail mixer or dinner thats more
on the formal side, the best choices are always
jazz or a classical string quartet. Were
pretty laid back here in the Northwest, and frankly
I think that classical can be kind of stuffy for
even semiformal occasions. For a sure bet, go
with a jazz quartet or trio. Jazz has been around
for nearly a hundred years, and I feel that its
the modern answer to classical music.
If you’re creating more of a party atmosphere,
then your music selection really depends on the
musical taste of whoevers on the guest list.
Every age group has a different taste. In my company
we really cater to the 30-plus crowd simply for
the fact that most of our musicians are a little
older. So if youre targeting an over-60
crowd, you cant miss with a swing/jazz band.

love to groove.
For Baby Boomers you cant miss with classic
rock or R&B. I heard once that the favorite music
we listen to throughout our lives is whatever
we loved at the age of 19. If thats the
case, then its no wonder so many Boomers
love music from the 50s and 60s (and even the
70s will be a hit).
Hip-hop is for hipsters.
If you want to sizzle and not fizzle with late
teens and 20s crowd, then go for a DJ. This group
wants to listen to their favorite music they hear
everydayhip-hop, rap and pop. And you might
be surprised to learn, there arent many
bands out there these days playing those chart-topping
