Considering hiring a function band is a great idea to make your planned party of the year a successful one. Whether it is your very own wedding party, or your daughter’s 18th birthday, or just a special occasion you want to celebrate.
It has become very important in present days that we are able to treat our guests at any major event in the best possible ways. Be it the food or the music, everyone should be satisfied and leave with a smile. The role of a function band performing live music as a result has become very crucial in this regard.
If your party has a function band playing really good music, it will become a great event, and people will be talking about it for a really long time. All you need to do is get in touch with the correct band, and follow some notsodifficult rules.
Since word of mouth advertising is advertising at its best, you will want to take advantage of this.
You want to seek out recommendations from your colleagues, family and friends so that you can book the best band possible.
Since the proof is always in the pudding, you will want to try to listen and watch the function band in person if at all possible.
The other options may be in checking out their website for videos of their performance or borrowing a demo recording of any of their acts in such occasions.
Remember too, that you get what you pay for so you will want to be extra careful when making your selections.
Request the function band head to provide you the complete list of the songs they perform and the prices they charge. This is what professional bands have in writing.
They are businesslike. If the band does not have this, do not contact them further.
While securing the date of the performance of the function band we normally need to keep a security deposit of ten or twenty percent of the actual fee.
Also, make sure that you are asking whether or not they will take requests from your guests. Most bands will but they want to know that you would like this ahead of time so that they can prepare.
Another important thing is learning about the function band’s equipments and instruments. It is best if we make sure that they are loud, modern and safe.
Do not be afraid to ask about the wardrobe they will be wearing. You want to make sure that their attire will work well enough for the event that you are planning.
However please give them some leaway as often performers like to dress ‘uniquely’!
They must arrive at the venue with ample time in their hand so that they can perform sound check with ease and the sound engineer sorts out all the noises and interferences that may disturb the guests while hearing.
Giving them the program or the timetable of the party as this would also help the band; this way they know when they should play and when they should not.
All eyes will be on the function band when they take the stage. Do take a little extra time to go over the details when they arrive. Your band choice could make your function the event of the year and make your event a talking point for weeks afterward!
