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.

The following acts are perfect to consider if you’re planning a(n):

  • Outdoor event
  • Holiday party

1. Fred Lee IV – Guitar with Vocals

Solo guitar with vocals is a great option to explore for an event that needs live music. Fred Lee IV, frontman of Charlotte rock outfit Late Night Special, is a very talented and soulful acoustic guitarist and vocalist. Specializing in tunes from John Mayer, Bill Withers, Tom Petty and Avett Brothers, he covers a wide variety of well-known hits that will cater to any audience. Fred is a perfect solo guitarist option to consider because he adds his own distinct flavor to well-known songs, which creates an unforgettable performance.

 

2. J’Michael Peeples – Jazz/Blues/R&B Guitar

Jazz guitar is one of the less common musical styles in our local music scene, and talented jazz guitarists are even fewer and farther between. J’Michael Peeples is truly a local jazz guitar legend in the making and is the perfect option to consider for a private event because of his level of experience, professionalism, reputation and skill. 

 

3. LS Brown – Instrumental Pop Guitar

What if you don’t want vocals or jazz? The guitar is a wonderful instrument to employ for creating background music all on its own. LS Brown is a great option to consider because he specializes in recreating popular songs from the 1960s – 1980s across various genres of popular music instrumentally using just his guitar and a loop station.

3 Live Rock Bands for a Labor Day 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 rock bands for a Labor Day party!

 

1. The L.A. Maybe

The L.A. Maybe is a Charlotte-based rock band that specializes in hits from rock ‘n’ roll favorites like Guns ‘N Roses and AC/DC, and follows up with pop and funk hits from giants like Prince, Ed Sheeran and Bruno Mars. A fresh set of faces in the Charlotte event industry, they have taken the regional music scene by storm to make a name for themselves while also fostering a high-quality musical experience for private events. The L.A. Maybe is a great option to consider for a Labor Day party because they have a unique set of songs under their belt and will keep any party going until the wee hours with their energetic delivery and fun-loving nature.

 

2. Late Night Special

They’re a perfect option to consider for any party because they have a deep passion for what they do and love to keep people on the dance floor! One of the more unique aspects of this band is their soulful and groove-oriented nature, which makes them very easy to enjoy. Late Night Special most often performs as a 5-piece band, but can add saxophone, keys and a full horn section upon request and availability.

 

3. U-Phonik

If you’re after more straight-ahead rock music, U-Phonik is the band for the job. They specialize in electrifying, high-energy performances, and their song list covers a wide range of hits from the 1970s to today. U-Phonik is one of our personal favorites because they can make a private event space feel like a stadium concert, and they never take their foot off the gas. Labor Day weekend is meant to be one big party, so why not bring U-Phonik to set things off?
