Starry Nights and Toasted Marshmallows: Campfire Jams

Updated: Jun 7

Imagine sitting by a crackling campfire, the stars twinkling above, and the perfect playlist setting the mood. Campfires are a lot of fun, but they require dedicated and consistent effort to start and maintain them that often stretches into hours. This is where the music comes in, guiding you through every step.

Tunes that encourage you to sing along, bounce your leg, or even dance are essential. A well-curated playlist is as crucial to a campfire as the logs themselves. Whether you're gathering sticks and kindling, setting up the logs, toasting marshmallows, or relaxing with a beer in hand while you feel the warmth of the fire and gaze at the stars, music will be your constant companion.

Starting with some southern rock, Americana or alternative country is a great idea, but a campfire can last for hours, so variety is key. Create a playlist that spans multiple music genres and can be enjoyed on repeat. The goal is to have music that everyone around the campfire will enjoy, enhancing the shared experience and conversations under the night sky.

Campfires are perfect for diving into and savoring your favorite music during evenings that often stretch into the wee hours. You’re outside, smelling the campfire, hearing the fire crackle and looking at the stars. This is the time to play songs that allow you to fully immerse yourself in the moment and your surroundings.

Set it and forget it!
