A 50s Quinceañera Music Playlist

Looking for fast paced quinceañera music that will keep everyone moving during your party? The 50s era has legendary music to inspire you; it’s called rock and roll.

Rock and roll dominated popular music in the latter half of the 1950s as an evolution of musical styles such as the rhythm and blues, gospel, country, and pop. Also there was a rising role of the electric guitar in music, developed and popularized by Les Paul. Chuck Berry, who is considered to be one of the pioneers of Rock and roll music, refined and developed the major elements that made rock and roll distinctive, focusing on teen life, featuring guitar solos, and fast paced rhythm that can keep any quinceañera playlist upbeat.

Rock and roll has its place in history as leading to a number of distinct sub-genres, including rockabilly, which combined rock and roll with “hillbilly” country music. Singers such Carl Perkins, Bill Haley and His Comets, Jerry Lee Lewis, Buddy Holly, and Elvis Presley were major players of this part.

In order to have an eclectic quinceañera music playlist, you should include music from multiple eras. All the different styles of rhythm and beat will help your quince guests stay on their feet.
