3 Live Music Ideas for a Corporate or Club Holiday Party

Our motto is Good People, Good Music. We understand that we are in the people business first and the music business second, and we pride ourselves on the relationships that we uphold with our clients and musicians. Here are 3 live music ideas for a corporate or club holiday party!

 

1. Straight Fire
Style: Top 40/Party Band

If you’re looking for one band that can do it all, consider Straight Fire. These corporate event veterans are a perfect option to consider for a holiday party because they can play as small as a duo for more laid back portions of the event, or as large as a 12-piece band with a DJ/emcee and horn section to really bring the heat.

 

2. Reggie Sullivan Band
Style: Fusion

Looking for something really different? Reggie Sullivan Band is just what you’re looking for because they transcend the limits of genre, blending elements of many different styles to create an inimitable musical experience. 

 

3. Late Night Special
Style: Rock/Soul

These guys really know how to hold a groove. If your guests want to dance the night away or even just kick back and listen to some awesome jams, Late Night Special is the band for you.
