DJ Track Star Staci Palm Springs Cocktail Hour Playlist

DJ Track Star Staci says…

The Palm Springs music scene is very much house music – from deep house by the pool to the raves at Coachella. However, the Palm Springs look is mid-century and mod 1960s.

This cocktail hour or dinner playlist brings together all of those influences (plus samba, which was also big in the 60s). The playlist also features some of Palm Springs’ favorite former residents (Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley).

And, because most Palm Springs weddings are destination weddings (i.e. couples who are from out of the area), it never hurts to throw in some California songs that fit the vibe!
