P2020379Build It Up: If you are looking to make a statement at your gala or festival, customize your band to include more musicians. Adding in horn sections, violinists and more singers allows for the live music to take center stage and create an exciting atmosphere that encourages dancing. These bands can play traditional big band music or put an exciting twist on pop and rock favorites.

Break It Down: Perfect for wedding ceremonies, dinner parties and corporate events, acoustic and acapella groups take a more subtle approach to live music. Downsizing your band to utilize small acoustic sets or simply just singers creates an intimate entertainment experience for guests without distracting from important conversations or other attractions in the venue.

Mix It Up: Remix your entertainment by incorporating other experiential activities. Collaborate with DJs or other bands for a fusion of genres or to create a “battle of the bands” style event. Incorporating performing artists, like dancers or acrobats, is another way to tie your musical act to entertainment. Looking to take this idea to the next level?
