Have you ever hosted a dinner party for friends? You decide to do steak….who doesn’t like steak….it’s easy to make, goes well with chips….who doesn’t like steak….Mary the vegetarian that’s who…bitch! Problem is everyone has their own tastes when it comes to food. You see it on most episodes of ‘Come Dine With Me’…there is always one person who “can’t eat that”.
If music be the food of life then we encounter the same problem…the picky eater from time to time. It’s impossible to keep everyone musically happy all the time at a wedding due to the large cross section of listening tastes. At the next wedding ask everyone around the table to take out their iPhone and compare the top ten playlist of each, you’ll find no two alike…poor Uncle Matty doesn’t even have an iPhone…he’s still rolling with the 51ten…legend Uncle Matty. Over the years we’ve learned to play the percentages game and play what we call the ‘Sunday afternoon radio set’…nothing to extreme, a good general mix, music everyone has heard.
But from time to time you get a picky eater… surprisingly mostly senior in age.
If you are a picky eater, spare a thought for the band…they are doing their best to feed the masses!
