If the rich and famous bring in the world’s best live bands for their high-end weddings and parties, why can’t you? Well, duh! Theres your answer in a nutshell. You can. Just because TV and movie stars have more money than you doesn’t mean you can’t hire the same world-renowned band they do.
Of course, if a celebrity hires someone like Bruno Mars for their event, your budget may not allow for that. But most big rollers don’t hire world famous singers or music groups, they hire the best party bands they can find. And believe it or not, the best bands can be had at reasonable prices. And since dance bands usually make difference between an impressive, unforgettable party and a dull event, you may want to consider bringing in the best band you can afford. Here are a few excellent points on why they are all the rage.
Live bands create a mood. Plus, they are really great at reading the audience and playing off of that. They are experts at getting guests onto their feet and out of their chairs. They know the tricks on how to get people onto the dance floor where they can have the time of their lives. The very next time you come across a band in a club, pay particular attention to the things they do to get crowds out of their seats and onto the dance floor. Your master of ceremonies or disc jockey just won’t have the same influence on a crowd.
Event bands are meant to be experienced live. Recorded music will sound flat and unexciting. Plus, whenever you are experiencing a band face to face, it isn’t just you listening to music on the radio while you take a hot bath. You are in the same venue as many other music lovers and everyone is shouting and moving to the beat and having a laugh and getting caught up in the moment. Regardless of how great recorded music is, you can’t successfully duplicate the magic brought about in a live show.
Hiring a high energy band is trendy. When you notice posters for future live musical events or you receive a party invite, what gets your attention – the idea that the event will include a live band or that it’s going to include a live DJ? Disc jockeys are great, and there are a lot of amazing ones out there, but our money (and celebs money) is making a bet on the undeniable fact that an event featuring a top band is going to become an occasion that people will be raving about for weeks, or even months afterward. Can you say the same thing about a DJ? Probably not.
Live bands are so much more than simply music machines, pumping out one dance hit after the other. A good band is a lot more than just a group of individuals with musical instruments pumping out the top radio hits. They are way more than just a jukebox, and consequently will supply your event with an evening or afternoon overflowing with entertainment value where music is really just a minor part of the overall performance. An experienced performance band is going to connect with your guests during the program.
Events become memorable when there’s live dance music. There really is nothing like enjoying a world-class Top 40 band performing in a live show. Celebs know this, which is why they use them for their own private parties and wedding receptions. The music is compelling. The sound is vibrant. The atmosphere is electrifying. Almost nothing comes close to what it’s like having everything around you shaking to the rhythmic thump that comes from music whenever it’s performed in a live setting.
