Anyone who has ever been involved with the organisation of a corporate event will know just how much work is involved. The venue has to be suitable and in the right location, the date has to be convenient so that people turn up and the catering has to be of a high standard to impress the guests. However, don’t overlook the importance of the entertainment. Get it right and it will mean the event is a success. Get it wrong and you could find people wishing they were elsewhere instead.
So, what are the different options open to you when organising this type of event? Well the most obvious one is probably a DJ; one who will play a variety of different types of music as well as requests to keep everyone happy. You could select a certain decade if that’s what you prefer, or take a look at a sample song list to make sure everyone’s taste is covered, adding or deleting anything you think would improve the event.
Of course the biggest impact will be created by booking a live band to really impress everyone. Live music creates an atmosphere like nothing else and the choice available to you will be huge. Minimise the chance of picking the wrong band by going through a music agency such as our favourites, A.T. Music Agency. They will have expert knowledge on what is required for your event and will be able to make their recommendations to you based on your requirements. You’ll be able to choose anything from classical music, jazz, or a tribute act to appeal to your guests. Pick for example a Michael Buble or Madonna tribute act and you’ll certainly have everyone joining in, or opt instead for a band that will play everyone’s favourite cover versions all night; you really can’t go wrong with a suitable live band.
Be sure to speak with your chosen act or agency about a PA system. Many corporate bands will carry their own PA system with them and in that instance, you’ve absolutely nothing to worry about however if they don’t, you’ll need to provide one! Of course, that doesn’t have to mean stress and confusion over what you need to hire, however, as the likes of A.T. Music Group (sister company to the aforementioned A.T. Music Agency) offer PA Hire in Essex and London and are perfectly positioned to offer systems for everything ranging from pub shows to your corporate event!
