When planning for a party such as a wedding party, birthday party, a corporate party etc. The person organizing the party is often posed with the problem that on what basis the music band should be hired. The common answers which come in are generally – hire band according to your budget, hire one according to your preferences in music, hire band according to the theme of the party or the kind of party you are arranging, etc This will only leave you completely confused without any proper solution to the problem.
Thus, hire band keeping in mind two things – one is your music preference and the other is the type of party you are arranging for. Budget however should not be a deciding factor as that may lead to total disaster of the party you are arranging for. But if still budget is something you are thinking about then try and get the beast band and reduce the number of musicians in it if required.
Hire band according to your music preferences i.e. what music would you like to be played at your party. If you want a dance party where your guests shake a leg or two on the beats of the drums, then hire band that can make the crowd groove and go mad on the dance floor. Again if the music preference is soft and soothing just to give a background score for the party, hire band that will set the mood of the party by its light instrumentals.
So, in case you are going by the music preference way, hire bands which specialize in a particular genre of music like heavy metal, soft romantic numbers, rock and roll, blues, old pop, punk rock, death metal, revival, folk music, soft rock, etc.
Secondly, the music bands can also be hired on the basis of the type of party you are having. Infact, today the music bands actually advertise themselves saying that they specialize in some specific kinds of parties or events. Like some specializes is playing in wedding parties while the others are expert in playing at corporate events.
To illustrate this further, a wedding ceremony is an occasion when people of all ages and backgrounds are invited. These people have different tastes for music. Thus, while choosing the band you should see that the band is able to cater to the needs of all the guests. So a music band playing at the wedding party should be versatile enough to play old hits to the recent chartbusters making sure that the flow of the music is smooth and matches the mood of the party. Soft romantic songs could be played or special music pieces during special moments like when the couple kisses each other and when the bride walks down making the wedding touching and emotional.
Again, in cases of birthday parties hire bands that can fill the air with fun and joy making the day special for the birthday guy. They need to interact with the crowd, spread cheer, and play dance numbers so that everyone puts their hair down, and has a gala time n the dance floor altogether.
Thus, it is either of these two things that should be taken into consideration while hiring a music band, one is the genre of music you want for your party and the other is whether the band is a specialized one in your kind of an event. Having hired the band on such solid grounds, your basic work is done and you don’t have any worries anymore for the grand finale.
