Whip it with a mega dance band option to keep your rookie team busy when the training is done. You don’t want them sitting at the bar drinking up the profits, but rather on the dance floor meeting, greeting, and having a great time!
When your best dance band features the Electric Slide, you might want to check the age of your average attendee.
Who is your market audience?
When you know the average ages of your team members and the music styles that keep them dancing until midnight, you’ll have a better idea of which bands to choose. Your best dance band option may be heavy metal, or it could be crooners? But you, as the event planner must know the difference. You’ll need to understand which bands sing what songs, and it’s easiest to find that information when you hire a band from a well-known entertainment or show band contractor.
When do you hire the band?
Most everyone knows you can’t find the best entertainment options if you wait until the last-minute to hire, but if you do… Never fail, there are some amazingly, well-known, star-studded, show band contractors who have a list of great dance bands, and venue entertainers to choose from. Just call one of them! But how do you know when is the best time to hire the best band? You should start calling around as soon as you have a date and venue for your event. Find a few great options and get copies of their “market promos” before you make the final selection. Ask what songs they play and get a good playlist of familiar tunes to choose from prior to the date of the event.
Check appearances, and if possible attend an event with the band of your choice, before hiring them. The entertainment contractor should be able to help you out with this request.
Why you need a contractor?
A key element of hiring the best band is finding a dance band that is available in your area. You could spend days seeking out the names of various dance band options, or you could just call a contractor in your area who has a list of quality bands. Trust me when I say, it’s far easier to hire a great band through a contractor.
If something goes wrong – you can always turn to the contractor to make it right!
Your best option for hiring a dance band is always to find a high-quality, service oriented dance band contractor who specializes in corporate events.
