Weddings and Functions: I get asked a lot for "set-lists" or examples of pop/romantic music that I play on the piano for Wedding Receptions. (This list could also be used for functions or general background music at other events) Here is a SAMPLE list based on just one of my gig-pads. This list doesn’t include literally everything that I play, but will give you an idea.
