Kansas City Bouquet Toss Song Ladies Night By Kool & The Gang

Ladies’ Night” By Kool & The Gang:
A Top 20 Bouquet Toss Song
For Wedding Receptions In Kansas City.

In September, 1979, Kool & The Gang, released their thirteenth studio album, “Ladies’ Night.” The album itself became a huge success as the title track climbed to #8 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart during the week ending January 12, 1980.  “Ladies’ Night,” the song, remained on the Billboard Charts for 24 weeks and the album became Kool & The Gang’s first to reach the prestigious platinum status. With that success, Kool & The Gang dominated the 1980’s with additional releases (including the song “Celebration“) that flooded the airwaves and dance floors in clubs and at wedding receptions in Kansas City and elsewhere.

The song, “Ladies’ Night” was introduced to the public at the same time that the disco era was coming to an end. But, the smooth pop and R&B disco beat not only made it a popular dance song, it became something of an anthem for bars and clubs who were introducing the idea of a special “Ladies’ Night,” a week night promotion to bring more women into their establishments. Ladies rarely paid a cover and could purchase drinks at a considerable discount. Obviously, the pay-off was that a large group of mostly single females would attract a large number of men who would gladly pay a cover charge and full pop to drink just for the opportunity to mingle.

Almost immediately upon its initial release, wedding DJ’s were playing “Ladies’ Night as a popular song choice during a bride’s bouquet toss. Even today, in 2013, Ladies’ Night” by Kool & The Gang remains a popular bouquet toss song at Kansas City wedding receptions. According to DJ Intelligence, a website that tracks music requests played by wedding DJs around the world, Ladies’ Nightis still the 14th most requested bouquet toss song on the 2012, year-end list of the “Top 50 Most Requested Wedding Bouquet Toss Songs.” And, why not?

Ladies’ Night” is a fun song with a hand clapping beat that is best played while single female guests gather to catch the bouquet. Plus, it’s a great choice for a bride to have her wedding DJ play while she spends a few special moments to celebrate on the dance floor with just her girlfriends.
