Five Reasons to Hire a Live Band

I always love the story about David Gilmour’s 50th Birthday Party; in keeping with the Pink Floyd front man’s slightly reserved manner, he told his guests that his birthday bash would be a relatively small affair with a DJ and a few nibbles. In actual fact, he (slightly ironically) hired the highly successful Australian Pink Floyd – one of the most successful tribute bands in the world. Pink Floyd’s drummer, Nick Mason, was quoted as saying that the tribute act was actually better than the real Pink Floyd! It seemed that for David, the reality was that nothing could beat a live band. But he must have always known that…

Bands make events memorable. When all said and done, when was the last time you rapturously said: ‘that DJ was brilliant; he/she made the night utterly memorable; I’d like to see that DJ again…’ You get the picture! Only a live band has the capacity to create an event that people will talk about for years to come. DJ s can create a good night; a live band can create an incredible night which will live in your memory forever!

So why else should you consider our live bands for hire? If you need any more persuasion, read on:

  • A band is guaranteed to get people dancing. Have you ever noticed that at a typical DJ led party, it is usually an hour or more before the first brave dancers step onto the floor? With a band, the dancing starts from ‘the word ‘go’’ 
  • Just like a talented DJ, a charismatic band frontman has the instinctive ability to create a party atmosphere and to get people ‘on their feet’. Also, have you noticed that with a live band it’s very rare that the dancing stops – it usually lasts all night long? There are no ‘dead-spots’ – these troubadours perform week-in-week-out and know instinctively what works with audiences.
  • Unlike an inanimate CD, live music is visceral – it hits you in your gut and sears through your body. You literally feel the music! It is transformational and physically energises people. Yes, a lovely couple, wedding cake and copious alcohol add to the ambience but a live band transforms a reception into a spectacular event!
  • But live bands aren’t just for weddings. At corporate events, you really need a band to create a chilled, relaxed ambience. Jazz bands and ‘Post-Modern Duke Box’ bands are sweeping up the market here. Bands such as The Gatsby Gems relax people; their presence subliminally creates a chilled vibe conducive to smoothly schmoozing the night away with those (normally) formal colleagues. Live music (and a splash of alcohol) has the unearthly power to soothe the most savage corporate beast!
  • Remember: live bands are for hire and desire! If you want an evening of pure rock and roll, or a Mumford Style Folk Band then our bands can seamlessly cater for your fancy. All your desires can be satisfied just by selecting that perfect band to make a good night into an all-around musical extravaganza that people will be talking about for months.
