When deciding to organise and plan for an event, music may not be on the top of your list, yet it’s difficult to imagine any event without it. Would a bride want to walk down the aisle in silence? How could you host party without any music, whether it be background music or tunes for your guests to dance along to? Music for your event is not only used as a form of entertainment, music also sets a scene, creates a mood or atmosphere and unites people.
Call us to secure one of our saxophonists for your event.
As you have probably gathered by now, we love music! Not just rock and pop, but every kind of genre you can imagine! Jive, Jazz, Soul… everything! So, we thought we’d provide a quick heads up on why we think you simply have to hire a saxophonist for your wedding or event.
Hiring a saxophonist is stunning visually! Everyone is interested in watching them and listening to the great sound of the sax. You will find that your guests will be waiting with anticipation for the first note to be played after they saxophonist set-up. Wait and see… your guests eyes will almost hypnotically be drawn to the stage or performance area before they even start.
Hiring corporate bands, or bands who are experienced at entertaining for team building events of big corporations is always your best bet. Who wouldn't want an experienced group of entertainers, who can read the audience, understand your corporate team building purpose, and create the necessary flow of activities to make that happen.
Live music ideas for corporate events
Whether it's a summer corporate event, an awards ceremony, or Christmas party, finding the right live entertainment for your event can be the key to making the right impression. With such a selection of options available, choosing the right live party band or group that entertains your guests may be a bit tricky.
Here are a few ideas to get you thinking:
If you are looking for a bit of class and sense of occasion, you might like the idea of Champagne and canapés on arrival and an upbeat jazz band playing to your guests. At the smaller end of the scale, you could look for a jazz trio or push the boat out with a fabulous swing band. Jazz bands can also cover a wide genre of music, so your guests can enjoy an array of music.
Roaming acoustic bands
It has become popular to hire live roaming acoustic bands. This consists of three of four musicians who move seamlessly around the venue playing their instruments without any amplification. They can either weave in and out amongst your guests, or if it is a sit-down event, they can move from table to table making their way round the entire room. If you want a party atmosphere later, they can play close to the dance floor at the end of the night to get your guests up on their feet.
Ibiza saxophone music
If the laid-back summer Ibiza vibe is what you are looking for, then a solo saxophonist playing the best of Cafe del Mar classics is certain to get people in a relaxed frame of mind. This gentle sound is perfect for corporate drinks receptions or evening functions. A solo sax player is the perfect way to get the ball rolling at your summer corporate party.
Live bands for dancing
Live party bands continue to be a favourite on the corporate function scene, adding heaps of energy and creating a real sense of occasion. The options for function bands are endless, whether you're looking for an almighty 12-piece band, a country style band that will get your guests trying some line dancing, or hiring a band that will play music from a particular decade – the choice is yours.
Mexican themed party with a Mariachi band
Aye, aye, aye! If you are looking for some Latin fun – hire a Mariachi band. Give your guest sombreros to wear, beer or Tequila to drink and some Mexican canapes to eat. With their traditional Mexican music, you’ll certainly create a party to remember!
Tribute bands can be so much fun. Whether it is a music legend that you want to replicate, an era that you want to relive – there is a wide variety of tribute bands that can be hired. What do you think your guests would love?
Whatever you're looking for, we hope that you are able to create an unforgettable event. If you are looking to hire a Saxophonist or a Karen Carpenter Tribute night in and around Essex, please give us a call on 020 8088 0945.
