4 Tips for Booking a Live Band
If you've never booked live music for an event before, you probably have some questions. We've come up with a few tips.
Check out these essential questions to ask before booking a live performer or band for your event:
1. Know your audience: What type of music will be best suited for your party? For example, you might want to book a group that specializes in nursey rhymes and children’s music for your three-year-old’s birthday, while a local cover band that plays the latest hits will totally rock your older daughter’s sweet 16.
2. Do your research: Find several bands and performers that serve your area in New York. We recommend having a few options, in case one of your potential choices is already booked for your date. This will also allow you to shop around for competitive pricing.
3. Check reviews: Thanks to the Internet, it’s never been easier to read reviews of potential entertainers. For performers, try to locate previous performances on YouTube. Many groups will also post videos and sound clips directly on their website.
4. Agree on the logistics: Now that you’ve selected your entertainer, finalize the details of the event. How long do you need the band for? How many sets will they play? How much time will they need to set up their equipment and warm up? What songs are included in the set list? Do they take requests? In the case of children’s musicians, are their shows interactive or do they need an attentive audience?
Using these tips, you’ll ensure that you have booked a quality music group to perform at your event. KidsParties.Party can also help you with finding the perfect performers for your party. Simple choose your state to find talented musicians in your area.
