The Importance of choosing the Right Music for your Event

The Importance of the choosing the Right Music for your Event


Recently, in  one of my meetings magazines, I  saw a comment from a planner who was complaining about a loud band at a Networking Reception she attended.  Wait, I said to myself, why is she blaming the band?   She said “Bands think the only way to play is loud”!   It made me very angry to hear that because I know it’s not the band’s fault!  Yes, there are bands that only play loud, so why would you book them for a reception where people are trying to talk? You see? It’s not the band’s fault-it’s the fault of whoever booked the band!


This is just another reason that you should use a professional even when it comes to something as simple as booking the right entertainment for a reception.  As you can tell from this woman’s comment, the band ruined her experience at the networking reception-and that is how it goes!   Someone involved in the planning of that reception did not hire a professional to assist in choosing the music and she should have.


If people can’t come to a reception and do what they have come to do- whether it is talking or dancing- then no amount of fabulous food or great décor can make them stay and enjoy themselves. Remember,  music  has the power to make or break an event. Hire a professional or do your research-but don’t blame it on the band when you have made the wrong choice!
