Music is a must for any party. Be it a birthday, an after the wedding party, after graduation party, name them music should be present. You can choose to hire a DJ or choose to hire a live band. This one depends on your budget because a live band might be more expensive compared to a DJ. If you decide to hire a live band, there are things you must have in mind for the success of everything. This article will outline the important things you must consider.
A live band
At what time should the band arrive at the party? Should it be earlier than everyone or when?The answer is, the band should be at the party before everyone else. It will be better if the guests find an already warmed up room or ground depending on where the occasion is held. This means, you must tell the band the exact time the party is intended to begin and agree with them on when to arrive, and of course earlier.
Should they be dressed the way you they want or do you have a particular dress code? If the party has a dress code, the band should be dressed in the same code. This allows them to connect with the guests. The guests will feel that the band is part of them hence make everything better.
Source of power
This is a very important point to consider. If the venue has power supply then well, but what happens if there is power interruption. You should liaise with the management of the venue for an alternative source of power. It will be bad, to stop music because there is no power.
Type of music
What music do you prefer, if you have a particular type, then inform the bad earlier for them to prepare and choose the right songs? If general, tell them too. It would be better, however, if you go for general songs because different guests enjoy different music types.
