Great Post on Goop

Summer is almost here which means: It’s time to party!
Graduation parties, birthday parties, 4th of July, bbq’s, ect.
Summer is full of parties and the last thing you want is to be stuck being the dj at your party when you could be mingling! However, someone has to do it. What’s a party without the music? As the music is so essential at a party, it might be worth bringing in a real dj. By getting in contact with someone that has all the best dj equipment, you could ensure that your party will be one of the best. With professional speakers and mixers, the dj should be able to provide great music all night. This should impress your guests. Make sure you enjoy your party, whilst a professional dj takes control of the music.
Today on Goop, one of my favorite blogs written by Gwyneth Paltrow, Gwyneth asked music experts for their ten favorite party tracks that are normally played at parties. Hopefully, your dj will play some of these songs. Can you spot any of your favorite songs? Here is the list…
