Another sub-theme for a Sixties Party would be one which featured the Motown sound or a classic Rock and Roll theme. A lot of popular movies about the era could be rented for the occasion. Whether the many solo performers or singing groups are playing all guests will know the words to these classics. A sixties era diner might make a good decorating theme especially if a juke box replica is available for use.

Groups from all parts of the musical spectrum who recorded during the sixties could provide a play list that encompasses everything from folk to country and all points in between.
