Bands To Hire – A Quick Overview For An Eventful Day

By Eva Rhodes

If you ever want to throw a big birthday party or want to have a wedding that everyone will remember, look for bands to hire that perform live, to make your party a hit. When you have a live band at your service to play your favorite tracks and also that of all the guests you have, your party will definitely be a success.

There are different types of bands to hire from. While some are party bands specialized to play in parties, weddings and anniversaries, others are hardcore music bands specialized in different genre of music. There are also bands which pay tribute to other famous and iconic musicians and termed as tribute bands and music bands which specialize in playing the music of a whole decade, and are called decade bands.

Why go for hiring DJs or local pub bands when there are specialized live bands to hire. The pocket pinch is a bit more but the quality is sky high. With a live band performing, you can ask them to play the music of your choice, like in a wedding party, you can ask for playing them special romantic ones at the time when the groom and bride are kissing.

There are bands to hire for themed parties too. Suppose you are having a beach party or a themed Wild West party in an old barn out of town. While you can go for Bob Marley- style reggae music along with free flow of Jamaican rum in the beach party, you can have your music band play country hits in the barn party and get a very good feedback from your friends and partners.

You should very carefully handle the process of hiring these live bands. The internet and the yellow pages may be good sources, but the most reliable information can be attained from friends and relatives who have heard these live bands. You should only hire the bands after interviewing them and seeing if they are capable of playing the exact type of music that you want.

There are different genres of bands to hire from. While some play specifically for functions, the others are specialized on the genre of music they play. If you are having a wedding party or an anniversary it is better to hire a function band whereas in reunion parties you can do very well with a music band, especially those ones that play music of a whole decade, say the sixties or the seventies since the music taste of the group would be more or less similar.

When you have finalized which band to hire, sit with them and talk about your necessities and theirs. For instance make yourself clear what should be the theme of the party and what music you would like to have. Take suggestions from the band members and let them know your ideas and if that can be improvised. Decide on the type of music, the genre that is to be played. Will there be only soft rock? Will there be songs for dance? Will there be romantic songs at specific sequences? Decide everything before hand.

The final point to be kept in mind is the logistics. You should visit the venue and make sure that everything necessary for the band is available there. You should check out the parking space of the band, the dance floor, the stage facility, and also see if the venue has a permit for staging live bands.
