Blog about bands
Whether it's an end-of-year party at work, a birthday full of entertainment, or a beautiful wedding, everyone who has ever organised an event knows that feeling of adding that finishing touch. In many cases, the answer is a nice live band.
For example, you can book live bands that come to play for an hour or bands that provide a complete show for the entire event. In addition, at Evenses you can also easily choose from live bands with a specialization in different music styles. From covers of the best pop, rock, jazz, or Latin music, there is a genre for everyone.
It is important to take a few factors into account when booking a live band. For example, it is important that the style of the band fits well with the party and that the costs fit within your budget. It is also advisable to get some information about several bands so that you can have a solid backup plan. It is for these reasons that Evenses is as helpful and transparent as possible as a company.

Why is live music worth considering?
Booking a live band often gives a party that "wow" factor that gets people energised. Certainly, in comparison with music from a CD or the radio, a good band can add some liveliness and excitement to almost any type of event. Think, for example, of a Latin band for a summer night of salsa with friends or a cover band that performs all your partner's favourite 90s songs on their birthday. Whatever the party may be, live music from a good band is rarely a bad idea.
In addition to the musical aspect, booking a live band also provides a nice visual element at your party. A graduation party with a band will sound and look a lot livelier, than a live violin orchestra. When the band's interaction with the guests is good, the party's atmosphere will benefit and adds something unique to your average party.
Some tips for booking a live band
At first glance, booking a live band doesn't seem very complicated, but there are certain things to keep in mind and take into account. From availability and music style to sorting a location and equipment, the more the band fits your wishes the better your party will be.
At Evenses, we are always available if you have questions about booking a band and listed below are some important tips to do this. If it is the first time that you are going to book a band for a party or event, we recommend that you contact us, so that you can choose the ideal live music together with our booking specialists.
Whether you're booking a band or any type of entertainment, one important tip is to be on time. The earlier you contact a band for a booking, the more likely they are still free for the date you have in mind for your party. Depending on how important a particular band is for the party, you can also make the date of the event depend on the availability of the band. In any case, it is wise to not wait until the very last moment to book a live band.
If you have never considered booking a live band then you may be surprised by just how many options there are to choose from. Rock bands, orchestras, jazz bands, and even cover bands will have you searching for days. Therefore, before starting your search for the perfect live band, it is a good idea to make some elements of the party clear to yourself.
What kind of party or event is it? What style of music do you have in mind? Where does it all take place? Knowing these details and acknowledging them to our event specialists will allow your event to be efficiently planned and give you the most suitable act.
As soon as you have been able to compile a list of bands that you think fit your ideas, it's time to do some more research. You can ask Evenses specific things about the bands to gain further insight on which one is the best for your event. Ask to receive a video of the band at a wedding, pricing estimates based on a 4-piece band versus a 5-piece band, or even where exactly each band is located.
Thoroughly reading the band profiles on our website is the first step into researching the bands. You can get an idea of what kind of music the band can play, what instruments and equipment they need, and where they have recently performed.
It is also important to check if a certain band can perform in the venue location that you are having your event at. In general this is not a problem, but it is still important to check what is possible and what is permitted at the location. Be aware of the noise limits, equipment needed for the band, the size of the location, and the number of people that will be present. Most bands can adapt to the specific circumstances of your event, so it's always a good idea to make sure everything will be sorted.
One of the big plus points when it comes to booking a live band for your party is that you have the option to make requests. That is, in most cases, you can ask a band to prepare some songs of your choice to play during the party. Think of your daughter's favourite song for her birthday or the song that played during the first kiss with your partner. There aren't many better ways to give your party a personal touch. If this sounds like a great plan, first check with the band to see if it's possible.
Finally, the last tip necessary for a successful event planner is to always maintain communication. When you are organising a party, there are few things that are more frustrating than a band that does not understand what you want. In addition to the music that the band plays, the manner of communication is also important. Is the band easily accessible? Are they open to suggestions and requests from your side? Do they respond to your messages on time? This may seem minor, but fluent communication makes the entire booking and preparation process a lot more pleasant. That is the reason why Evenses is available seven days a week for consultation.
As you now realise, booking a live band for your party or event is not difficult, but it is important to take into account a few factors. At Evenses you can book a wide range of live bands and acts, from jazz bands and classical orchestras to rock bands and soloists, for a variety of occasions such as birthdays, weddings, corporate parties, and commemorations. In addition to the tips above, we also recommend that you contact us so that we can discuss your event and find the best possible entertainment that you desire.
