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.

3 Live Music Ideas for a 4th of July Event

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.

1. Bluegrass/Americana

With roots in the Appalachians and pioneers like banjo master Earl Scruggs (a North Carolina native), bluegrass music is a true American art form. Flat Tire Trio embraces this art form with a tasteful twist, and is a great option to explore for a 4th of July event because of their unique and truly American sound. They use their traditional instruments to put a spin on bluegrass, rock, blues and reggae, which reflects the melting pot of American culture.

 

2. Rock ‘n’ Roll

If your client is interested in something with more youthful energy, U-Phonik is just the right band because of their honest rock ‘n’ roll sound. They specialize in high energy performances, and their electrifying song list covers a wide range of hits from the 1970s to today. The 4th of July is meant to be a party, so why not bring U-Phonik to set things off?

 

3. Acoustic Guitar

Perhaps acoustic background music is what your clients would prefer. Matt Stratford of Chunky Daddy is a very talented guitar player and a soulful singer at that. He is a great choice for acoustic background music because he can set the mood without being too over-the-top. Matt plays Top 40/variety hits that can reach everyone in the audience without overpowering the event itself.

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.
