“You Say Party, We Say” Mixtape!

Our music program is named The Party Line for a reason…we like to party and we like music worth partying to.  This mixtape is dedicated to some of the greatest songs that include the word ‘party‘ in the track title, talk about partying, describe the crazy things that take place at a party, and most definitely make you want to party.  Some are old and some are new, but believe us, you will want to have this mixtape for your next party.

We’ve got heavy hitters like Justice and Notorious B.I.G., and some of our favs like The Cool Kids and Electric Six, plus two tracks from the King of Partys himself, Andrew W.K.!
