Why Bother With Live Bands?
Live bands make a celebration worth storing in our memory in any kind of party they perform in. It could be a celebration of your wedding, anniversary, your company’s annual day, a private party thrown for a career, infact it could be any occasion. These performances from a live band have the ability to make any dull party come alive and get the guests grooving on the dance floor. But, one of the main criteria in making a party a hit with a live band is the selection of the right kind of band for your party.
You can have ample choices from the wide range of different types of live bands that are available. Mainly, we can categorize live bands by two methods: The kind of occasions or event that the live band caters to, which could be a wedding party band a corporate band, birthday party band, etc. The other way is going by the music they play- hard rock, soft rock, country music, blues, heavy metal, psychedelic, punk, live acoustics, jazz etc.
There are professional live bands that perform wholly in wedding ceremonies. They do not perform in other kind of parties. These bands add on to the glam quotient in the wedding parties. They plan out their list of songs in such a way that there is a song or music for each small moment in the wedding which makes the day special for any couple. On the particular wedding day, they might at the very onset of the ceremony start off with very slow music as a background for conversations.
Once the guests settle down, now the music is based on the exceptional small instances like when the bride is walking down the aisle, exchanging the wedding vows, the kissing of the bride and groom after they are declared as man and wife; these are small moments which makes the day worth remembering, so a music or song at the background adds on more glamour and drama to it. Then, ultimately, time comes for the bride to have a dance with her father which is then followed by a dance with her newly wedded husband. Then the songs get on to bring the party mood so that the guests also join in for the dance.
You could also find live bands which are known as tribute bands that specialize in paying tributes to certain personalities. Many a time’s events are organized on the eve of some great persona’s birthday or anniversary to pay homage to them. Even in your private parties, if you and your gang had been great fans of a singer, you can hire a tribute live band to give their performance based on the songs of these personalities.
Live bands can also make a corporate party a great success if you are trying to make an impression in front of your boss. You can even win the hearts of your colleagues and your peers, as these bands can even play the music as per the choice of the audiences on their requests. Therefore, there is nothing more enjoyable when you can groove with your friends with a live bands performance as the backdrop. But, make it a point to get a band which is well versed in playing in corporate events or are well aware about the selection of the songs in these events.
Moreover, live bands in a theme party can help you to bring out the theme more profusely. The theme can become more prominent and successful with a band to go along with the theme. If a Mexican style party is what you want to serve on the platter of your guests then you also need to arrange for everything keeping that in mind, the food, décor, upholstery, your attires, and the like. So, there should also be Mexican music from the live band which will make your theme come alive and thus your party complete.
While venturing out for hiring live bands for your party make sure the venue where you will host the party has the requisite license to hold one. If it does not have the license and you get to know this on the day of the party, the party will turn out to be a disaster. Besides, also check out whether there is proper parking space for the band to load and offload their instruments from their vehicle. Even ask band people on the kind of stage or power supply etc. they would require for their performance. This will ensure a smooth and successful party on the D-day.
Party Bands – What Are Your Musical Tastes?
A group of musicians who play live music in parties are what the term party bands refer to. Needless to say, that having live music instead of the usual pre recorded ones can take any party immediately to a higher level adding a touch of class, style and a glam factor to it.

Apart from the usual music genre based bands, one can also go for a decade band in his party which plays hit numbers from a particular decade, say the ’60’s’ or ’80’s’. Imagine throwing a party for your colleagues and friends with a decade band churning out numbers from your childhood schooldays. Your guests will feel nostalgic and will enjoy themselves immensely.

With the correct blend of musical extravaganza, it can turn any wedding from great to grand. A professional wedding band’s expertise lies in the song selection primarily.
Since a wedding is attended by varied kind of guests starting from elderly relatives to young friends, the wedding party band needs to provide a very good blend of music consisting of the oldies of the yesteryears to the latest chart toppers so that everyone has a good time.
Moreover the entire performance should be expertly handled, starting with soft and soothing music as a backdrop for conversation at first, to gradually the pulse and tempo rising throughout the party till it culminates into a dance frenzy when everyone joins the dance floor at the end. Thus, for any kind of a party, the party band understand the mood to be created, the profile of the guests and performs accordingly for the party to be a great success.
