What to Consider When You Hire a Party Band…
A timeless form of entertainment, people have hired party bands to provide some exciting, crowd-pleasing music for decades. Party bands can come in all shapes and sizes, but always maintain that important factor of being fun and usually play covers of popular hits. If you hire party bands they aim to get everyone up on their feet and having a good time, they are there not just there as music but also to make it an inclusive and enjoyable experience for all. To help you decide which party band you would like to hire there are a few things you need to take into consideration including:
- Audience – Is there a wide age range or is it primarily kids or adults? You will need to hire a party band suited to their preferences, for example children will most likely prefer pop genres and only recognise contemporary songs whereas for a 50th birthday you may want a party band that can cover classic songs from their era.
- Genre – This might be an easy decision for some but if you’re trying to please everyone picking the genre can be difficult. Before you hire party bands think about the atmosphere you’re trying to create or if you have a theme in mind. For example if it’s a dance party you might want to hire a disco or pop party band, whereas if it’s slightly more chilled and glamorous a jazz, swing or vintage party band could be more suitable.
- Budget – How much are you willing to spend? Make sure you have a clear budget in your mind before hiring a party band. The size of a band will also effect the price, for example a 12-piece brass band will be more expensive than a jazz trio, also location and length of the set are important aspects.
What is the Difference Between Party Bands and Function Bands?
Party bands and function bands are synonymous. However, a party is defined as a social gathering whereas a function has an intended purpose and tends to be more formal. So, a party band will probably perform in a more relaxed environment whereas a function band may have to meet certain standards.
