Making our new year's eve party jazzy!?
My husband and I are having a jazzy new year's eve party, and I'm stumped on music. We've got a few artists like Duke Ellington and Frank Sinatra, but i was hoping to get some more modern artists, like Sondre Lerche and Richard Cheese. The ages will range anywhere from 21 to 30, and I'd like something that's upbeat and some hits that everyone will know. Any suggestions would be wonderful. Have a Merry Christmas!

Good call with Frank and Duke Ellington. However, if played too many songs in a row it will start to get a old man vibe and put people to sleep. Especially with the 21-30 crowd. Mix in some neo-soul and instrumental newer songs. Kenny G is good at doing instrumental musicals. Might I suggest these for you to download and include in your mix...
Luther Vandross - take you out tonight - jazz instrumental
Don't know why Norah Jones - jazz instrumental
Amy Winehouse - Mr. Magic *highly recommend
