Party Band 1
A party band refers to a live music band performing at a party to give it an extra special touch. Thus, be it a birthday party, wedding, anniversary or any celebration like birth of your first baby, a promotion, graduation, a car rally win or even a friends get together without a specific reason, delicious platters and a live party band is all it takes to make your party a smashing success.
The most common method to choose a party band is going by the genre of music it plays. Thus, if you are having a get together with friends, and all of you love rock, then the party band will be a rock band. On the contrary if all you want to do is to put your hair down and dance like crazy to shrug off all your tensions and worries in life, then a dance party band playing the latest chart topping pop hits, punk or disco is what you need.
Now, if you want to do something different in your party this time apart from going via the mundane ‘which – genre – do- you- like’ method, you can be creative in choosing your party band to make it happen. Below are some new party band ideas to give your party that ‘different’ and ‘special’ feel.
Firstly, instead of a rock or pop genre, one can hire a tribute band. For instance, if your guests are fond of country music, you might have a ‘John Denver’ evening, hiring a party band who can play all Denver songs as a tribute to the great man. Thus, a tribute to Michael Jackson, Beatles, etc is a good idea for your party.
The second idea would be to have a decade party band playing songs from a particular decade. Suppose it’s your dad’s birthday you are celebrating, you might as well have a ’60’ band playing oldies. Likewise, you can also have a Retro decade party band or a ’90’s band playing numbers to which you and your friends had shaken a leg or two during your childhood days.
A third novel idea would be to have a karaoke party band. Now, this will surely bring in a lot of fun and cheer with the band playing the musical and instrumental karaoke part to which you and your guests can sing yourselves. Getting good singer friends on to the stage or even not so good ones for that matter can make the entire evening a fun filled and memorable one.
The fourth idea in which your hired party band has a major role to play is if you have a themed party. Be it a beach party, or an old barn fall party, a backyard barbeque or a Halloween one, hire a party band that comes dressed accordingly and set the mood by playing music corresponding to the theme in order to make it come alive. For any kind of a themed party, be it a private one or a grand wedding or the like, the party band is who makes the theme prominent along with the décor.
Thus, as a conclusion it can be said that, whatever kind of party you are having, hiring a live party band can make all the difference. Be sure to check out logistical details like whether your venue has a music license or not, the sound limits specified, if any, and other logistical details like power supply, parking space, etc so that everything can be planned well before hand for making your party the talk of the town in the coming season.
