Top 5 Things To Check With Your Music Band Before The Event

por Jina Sutherland (2019-11-17)

Music is always an integral part of all events. Be it a wedding, a birthday, a bachelor party, corporate event or a close-knit get together, without live music everything seems dull. For a small event, many people prefer to hire a DJ or someone they know who is good at playing a musical instrument to ensure guest entertainment. However, the experience that a live music band offers is often unmatched. If you are also planning for an event and thinking of hiring a live music band, it is time to know about the top five things to check with your band before the event.

Information about their previous gigs

Ask information about the venue or clients for which they have performed in some of their notable previous gigs. It is always a good idea to dig deeper when you are hiring someone to ensure the success of your much-anticipated event. Even if you have found them by watching online videos of their performance posted on their website or social media, know about their previous gigs or clients and contact them to do a further enquiry about their professionalism and experience.

Number of singers or instruments they have

Instead of guessing from the videos of their previous gigs, it is best to ask about the number of singers or instruments they have straightway. For a small event, an acoustic duo which has two performers is ideal. You need to know how many singers or musicians will perform if you opt for a full-fledged band. This will help you to understand whether you need an acoustic duo, a three-piece band or a full-fledged band performance.

Do they accommodate special song request?

You may love some specific songs that you want to include in the playlist. If the event is a wedding or a birthday, chances are more that the bride to be or the birthday boy has an emotional attachment with a particular song. So, never fail to ask whether they are ready to accommodate any special song request for the event or not. Some music bands are ready to learn one song free of any charge for weddings. However, if their vocal range could not seem suitable for the song, they may reject to accommodate the song request.

How much space they will need?

You must have a concrete idea about the space that they will need to offer an engaging live performance. While some bands prefer to play while standing at one place, there are others who move a lot while singing or playing a musical instrument. Ask about the actual space dimensions that they need and then try to figure out whether you can offer the same or not. Some bands also demand a changing room.

Number of hours for which they will perform

The performance length of a band matters a lot. Most live bands choose to perform for 3 hours which can be spread across the event as 4 x 45 minutes. Breaks are also there as it is not feasible to play continuously without getting exhausted.

You can also ask about public liability insurance or about their ability to perform at the beach without any electrical outlets. Ask maximum questions so that you can hire the best live band for your event.
