Keep it simple. It's your event. You have tracks you like to play and play and play. Use those. Don't make your life miserable. I usually put together a playlist of my most recent tunes that I like (I don't repeat tunes if I can from previous events) and put it on repeat and walk away from the room. Only later on in the day do the regulars get to playing what they want as folks begin to leave.
When I make a playlist I try to put in something with bass, female vocal, male vocal, opera, symphony, strings, guitars, a Capella, ballad, fast paced, no country or rap allowed! This is intended to demonstrate the full capabilities of my Salk speakers and to hopefully hit a happy note with all the attendees. Can't please them all.
In your case you have floorstanders and bookshelf's coming so we should hear differences in their capabilities. But a good tune is a good tune and giving us a shot at it on different speakers should be fun.
Oh, I used to have little contests and here is one: Once you have your tracks decided upon, give everyone a sheet of paper and the most complete list of all the track songs and artists wins a door prize. Most can get close on the artist but most will fail the track name so it is fun to see them scramble.
