Any suggestions for background music for our cafe? We serve all types of food from sandwiches and foccacias to pastas, curries and beef hot pot, and we want something that will not jar the customers while they sit and read their paper while having a coffee, talk with their friends or eat their meal.
I have been playing a variety of styles recently but a lot of them are oldies and the staff are starting to complain that I've got to come into the the 21st century. lol. I often put the radio on, but sometimes the announcers talk too much or the music has been played so often its driving us crazy, or its just plain crap.
I have the Open Space CD, and a couple of Chillout cds and 2 Ministry of Sounds cds which are nice, but too ..... relaxing....I keep getting told to put something more lively!! No rap please - I don't like it. Oh, and no rude words - my customers range the whole gamut of ages, and I don't want to offend anyone. Any suggestions?
