How Your Music Knowledge Would Help your Party Planning Business
Party planners come from all walks of life, but those that naturally gravitate towards the party business are usually those that are used to the hustle and bustle of a good party. Retired musicians, social animals, mobile DJs and caterers are some of the ones that eventually add party planning to their list of business achievements.
If you know a lot about music, how will this help with your party business?
Book the Right Bands
If you were a part of a band or you’ve been a groupie in your younger years, you probably have enough connections to hook up a party with the right band. Teenager parties, in particular, would be appropriate for live music. A rock band is busy so book early. Just make sure you have enough room on the stage for equipment, even if they’re not as bulky as usual, like the pearl drums at Musician’s Friend.com.
Choose the Best Background Music
Cocktail parties where people mingle need a good background music that encourages lively energy. Classical music is great as piped-in sound in a casual or formal party where everyone seems to be standing and talking. Get something that provide sounds like the tinkling of crystals, such as the many variations of Spring by Vivaldi and Beethoven. A lighter, one-instrument version of Mozart’s music, like the Turkish March, can also be lively enough to provide a good background noise for a party.
Be Smart When Choosing Wedding Music
Weddings need the most feel-good, romantic music in the world and none of the heavy sounds that denote angst in some way. Soothing sounds include ballads like Wonderful Tonight and instrumentals of great love songs like Endless Love. You probably have to borrow the bride or the groom’s playlist to make sure you get it right. Also, ask what’s the song that the couple thinks is special.
