Atlantic Soul - Sample Setlist
For Atlantic Soul, there is no such thing as a standard setlist. They are continually updating their setlist with new material. As a bespoke service to each individual client, your own special 1st dance song can be learned, rehearsed and played live for you on the night given 4 clear months notice. Here's a small sample of songs that can be incorporated into a standard night's repertoire to get the party started...
The Way You Look Tonight (possible 1st dance)
In addition to the songs listed, they can do a full evening's entertainment or cabaret/tributes of certain themes. The themes they provide are:
Help! How do I play these video or music files?
If you have Internet Explorer 7 and can't get any Flash Movies to work, then download and try the much superior web browser called Firefox here.
It's easy! Just double-click on the link and Windows Media Player (or whatever music player you have installed on your PC) should run and start playing the music file within a few seconds. Make sure you have your speakers plugged in and switched on.
If you have a Broadband internet connection (which is very fast), then the music files should play very smoothly straight away.
However, if you have a standard "Dialup" connection (your modem dials up to allow you to make the connection to the internet) then you will find the music file stops and starts all the time. This is because your PC music player is trying to stream or play the music as it downloads to your hard drive but your internet connection isn't fast enough to play the music smoothly.
If that is what is happening to you, then all you have to do is let the music stagger through once (it is downloading as this is happening) and then it will play at full speed after that. You can then listen to the the music file as many times as you want.
Alternatively, you can download the mp3 first and play it from your Hard Drive. To do this, just right-click on the mp3 link and select "Save target as" from the drop-down menu.
You can then save the mp3 file to your Desktop or any other folder of your choice.
When the mp3 file is completely downloaded, double-click on it and it will play immediately on Windows Media player or whatever music player you have installed.
We hope that has helped you. If not, just give us a ring on 0141 577 6604 and we'll talk you through it.
We're here to help you in any way we can.
