If you’re planning a corporate event, one of the many decisions you will have to make is what kind of entertainment you will plan for your guests. While there are many options, if you want your event to truly make an impact and keep them engaged, live music is always the way to go! It creates a more powerful, shared connection, helping to bring employees together in a fun environment and build stronger relationships.
Here are 5 reasons from Blue Avenue Entertainment as to why you should choose live music for your next corporate event.
1. Engage Your Guests with an Interactive Performance
A live band is a great way to keep everyone in attendance focused on the event at hand. Live music is interactive and entertaining, with real musicians sharing their craft with your staff, who are watching and dancing on, staying in the moment, without having their attention drawn to something else. Live music draws the attention of everyone in the room, especially with a dancefloor located nearby, where the performers can gauge the audience’s moods and preferences, tailoring their song selections to fit.
The right live band can transport people through music. When people come together around their shared love of music, they feel an immediate connection with each other that’s hard to ignore. Their common ground is the band itself – and this creates something special that everyone who participates remembers long after the night ends.
2. Set the Tone of the Event
Live entertainment can be a great way to set the tone of the event and reflect your intentions for the evening. For example, if your event is meant to be a reward for all of the hard work your employees have put in over the past year, you could choose a fun, upbeat and fast-paced band that gets everyone up, moving and having a great time. For a more formal affair, perhaps such as an awards night, a big band setup could be hired to properly set the momentous occasion. Your entertainers of choice can match the theme of the event and keep the good vibes rolling for the duration of the day or evening.
3. No Setup or Extra Equipment Needed!
Live performers will come equipped with everything that is needed to keep your guests entertained for the whole event. You won’t need to worry about renting equipment, malfunctioning technology, or arriving ahead of time to prepare the facilities. The setup, tear down, and everything in between will be completely taken care of by the band and their crew, leaving you to enjoy your event along with everyone else.
4. Live Bands Can Offer Extra Services
Corporate events often have someone from senior management hosting the proceedings, but it doesn’t have to be this way. Since the frontman (or woman) will already be at the mic, for example, you can ask them to be the MC of the night, or ask them to make special announcements when needed. Oftentimes live performers will be able to provide extra lighting or other equipment to your event if needed, as they have plenty of it!
5. Boost the Morale of Your Team
Show your team that you care and appreciate all of the hard work they’ve been putting into the company. Sure, anyone can plug in their phone and hit play, but if you really want your employees to know that they deserve a special night, live music is an investment that has a clear return on investment. It boosts morale, and any manager knows that boosted morale equals higher productivity at work, so it’s a win-win!
