Live entertainment can take many forms and can be more exciting than other forms of entertainment . Live entertainment can be one of the single most important factors in determining the success of your event or wedding. Some of the things to take into consideration when booking your live entertainers are what kind of entertainment would suit my wedding day or event.
When choosing the music for your event, think about the ambience you’re trying to create. Choose a band that are flexible and have a wide range of music genres. For a touch of romance you may want mellow or jazz music to be played during cocktails and meals. To create the upbeat atmosphere to get your guests up and dancing, make sure your live entertainment have a range of dance music to perform in between the meals. In addition some romantic music for the first dance is a must. Decide on the type of band or live entertainment you want, whether it’s male or female vocals you prefer or perhaps a combination of both. An instrumental band would be beautiful during the wedding ceremony.
Your live entertainment needs to be flexible in order to create the different moods of your wedding or event. Think about your guests and the type of music that would be suitable for the different age groups. Entertainers with a large musical repertoire is best so that you can make some choices about what you would like for the bridal waltz and the choice of numbers for some of the dance sets. The live entertainment you choose should have the equipment to either play indoors or outdoors. In between sets your live entertainment or band should be able to play music to maintain the ambience at your wedding or event.
A professional entertainment group or band will spend some time with you discussing your music preferences and song selection. They will also create a run sheet to ensure that they are playing as much as possible and having breaks during formalities. If the band or group has not performed at a venue in the past they should contact them to investigate the sound facilities, and to advise them of their power requirements. They should arrive at the venue early to set up and conduct sound checks.
The live entertainment at your wedding will ensure that your guests have a great night. They will be charming and engaging. They should interact with the guests whilst yet remaining unobtrusive. A professional band or group will know when to engage the crowd and when to change the tone of the music. Deciding which music should be played is one of the more important decisions you need to make when planning your big day. So choose well and make sure your band or live entertainment hit all the right notes to make your wedding or event a success.
Enjoy your night!
