My one, real gig had recorded music during dinner and at the break.  We kept the dance floor filled while we were playing and it was empty when we weren't.

  We play a jitterbug night every Monday night with young folks doing the Lindy Hop, Balboa and Shag to our (quartet) New Orleans Jazz and swing tunes. They dance non-stop to every song so when we take a break they play swing tunes and keep dancing. They play Benny Goodman, Ellington, Basie, Louis Prima, etc. It has been no problem for us.....the club used to have Karaoke on the break....that was a huge problem. (many dancers would leave)

  The crowd is always delighted when we resume playing.
