Beach Picnic Playlist

Nothing says summer more than the beach. Some people like to lie out and relax, read a book or just take a snooze.

But here at The Beat Advisory, we tend to turn our trips to the beach into daytime disco parties.

So in between bites of the Peach Salad With Tomatoes and sips of Strawberry Pina Coladas, get down to some of our latest and greatest summer grooves, including new tracks from Daft Punk, Capital Cities and Empire of the Sun.

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. A hard thing to disagree with, we know. Drink up, get down and go to sleep happy.

The essential component to any summer cocktail party isn’t the right balance between tequila and salt, but the musical ingredients that create the perfect soundtrack. We enlisted expert musical programmer Andrew Wintner of The Beat Advisory, who curates musical experiences for dozens of restaurants, bars and hotels across the country, to round up a an eclectic collection of tunes that will make your soiree a memorable one.
