Music plays a big role in having a successful party. We’re sharing our favorite songs and best playlist for a summer cookout! Thank you Best Buy for sponsoring today’s post!
Best Playlist for A Summer Cookout
Summertime means fun in the summer, outdoor entertainment, vacations and time spent with family. One of the things we love to do during the summer months is open up our deck, get out the grill and invite friends and family over for a summer cookout.
A summer cookout is not complete without a playlist. I’ve mentioned numerous times when you are prepping to host a party; music is a huge key to the flow and mood of the party. And when you’re hosting an outdoor party, this gives you the opportunity to set up speakers and crank up the music (but not too loud or the neighbors may complain).
Equipment needed for a summer playlist
In order to play this awesome list at your summer cookout, you need to invest in a portable speaker. Music is a huge part of our entertainment strategy and having a speaker with stunning clarity, and a deep, heart-pounding bass is important to bringing our party to live. This is exactly what you will get when you purchase Ultimate Ears MEGABLAST. Not only are you getting a great speaker, but it also has the hands-free Amazon Alexa built-in.
We are usually busy manning the grill, setting the table, or running to get more food for our guests, so being able just to say, “Alexa, play my summer cookout or play next song” is very helpful. Derrick uses Spotify to make all of our playlists, and we can easily connect it with our Alexa, making this speaker and a win-win!
