A live band has the potential to turn your average birthday party into something unforgettable and extra special for all. By whipping your guests into a frenzy of dancing and laughter, it will certainly be a night to remember. It’s no surprise that there are a huge variety of bands available for you to hire, but the style of band that’s right for the occasion obviously depends greatly on the type of party you’re looking to host.
A 1920′s band is perfect for a Gangster themed or a murder mystery themed evening. The band will create an atmosphere which echo’s the decade of The Charleston, The Shimmy and The Foxtrot, ensuring maximum fun for all. Other options for party themes include a James Bond theme night where a brass band suits perfectly or Cowboys & Indians where a country hits covers band would definitely fit the bill, or even a Ceilidh for a Barn Dance!
Before booking the band you will be able to go through the list of songs they can play and some bands may be able to learn another song of your choice if given enough notice! Most party bands will perform a two-hour set with a 30-minute break in the middle. Those with their dancing shoes firmly fixed may consider hiring a DJ to continue after the band has finished their set. This will obviously incur additional costs but may be worth considering if you want the party to continue on into the night!
Obviously the party doesn’t need to have a theme to justify having the band! There are lots of other options to entertain your guests at a party that don’t include fancy dress. For example, you could have a tribute band playing the songs of your favorite band or a covers band from your favorite decade. Whatever the choice it should be personal or meaningful to you, after all it is your birthday!
Live music is a wonderful addition to any birthday party and ensures your guests will be up dancing to their favorite songs in no time. If your party is themed then you can choose a band to complement the theme for the occasion. Live music should be available to everyone, whatever the occasion and booking your entertainment through Bands for Hire will ensure that you’re not disappointed.
