3 Live Music Ideas For A Spring/Summer Reception

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 if you are planning a spring or summer reception!

 

1. Speakeasy Jazz

Few things are cooler than old-time speakeasy-style music. If your client is looking for a band to play whiskey-soaked tunes that will take their guests back in time to the era of prohibition, then Sidecar Social Club is a perfect option to explore. This multitalented group of musicians also does incredible renditions of Latin, classic R&B, big band and ’50s rock ‘n’ roll music as well as classy originals, so there can always be something different coming right around the corner in Sidecar’s sets.

 

2. High-Energy Dance Band

Perhaps your client wants their guests to party like it’s 1999 all night long during the reception. KRVE Band is one of Key Signature’s premier party bands, and is an ideal option for creating an atmosphere of unequivocal energy. On top of that, they will often play songs that are not typical of a standard party band, which is perfect for keeping guests’ on their toes.

 

3. Tropical Get-Away

If your client is planning a beach-themed event, they might want a band that brings vacation vibes. The Party Parrot Band, for example, is a Jimmy Buffett tribute band that is perfect for creating the ultimate beach party, because they live and breathe the island get-away lifestyle when they perform. Party Parrot also has a large repertoire of music in other styles that they can play upon request to reach everyone in the audience.

3 Live Music Ideas For A Spring/Summer Cocktail Hour

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 if you are planning a spring or summer cocktail hour!

 

1. Banjo

The electric guitar is perfect for creating a laid-back vibe during your client’s cocktail hour, but have you ever heard the 8-string banjo? It’s not what you think. This unique instrument adds a special twist to a jazzy set of background tunes, and it’s a great conversation piece to say the least.

 

2. Jazz or Fusion Trio

Having a jazz or fusion trio perform for your client’s cocktail hour is a great option for something a bit more lively than a solo musician. They create a richer sound because there are more instruments, and they can complement any event without overpowering the room.

 

3. Acoustic Guitar with Vocals

Perhaps your client is not interested in jazz, or they want to hear songs that they know during their cocktail hour. Variety acoustic guitar with vocals is a perfect way to hit all of those points without interfering with conversation in the room.
