When hosting a live event, music and entertainment are crucial to keeping your audience happy. The tough question is whether or not you should hire a live performance or just play music through a DJ. After reading this, you will be sure to hire live music at your events from now on.
Live Music Brings a New Crowd
If you advertise the fact that a live band or singer will be performing at your event, more people will be likely to come. For example, if you advertise that an indie-rock band will be performing, you can draw in a crowd that likes indie-rock music that may not have been interested in attending initially. Both locals and fans from farther away locations may come in if you are hosting an event with Los Angeles singers if that is their kind of music.
Live Performances Can Bring People Together
While any type of music can create conversation, more people are likely to interact with others if there is a live performance. Chances are everyone there is enjoying the music, sparking conversations that can lead to friendships. With these new friendships, the people are more likely to stay longer than usual, spending more time at your event, which keeps the party going.
Performances Draw Attention to Your Event
People walking or driving by are more likely to stop by, if the event is open-doors if they hear live music. The atmosphere is more friendly and open, drawing more attraction to people, causing them to want to be a part of the experience. With the new crowd, you will still have the regulars, but you can also expose more people to what you are offering at the event, benefiting you.
Live Music Keeps the Crowd Energized Longer
Listening to music coming from a playlist or a DJ can get your energy levels higher, but the genuine interaction of the band to the audience can keep people energized for way longer. People experience that concert feeling that makes them want to stay at your event for longer than they would have originally intended to. Energy from the performers gets passed to the audience, creating an everlasting energetic crowd.
Quality of Sound is Better
Raw music almost always sounds better than when it’s coming from a phone or laptop connected to a speaker. Audiences are more likely to stick around longer if the music they are listening to is not choppy and cutting out every other word, or barely loud enough to hear. With live music, you avoid more technical difficulties, resulting in a less awkward night.
Live Performances are More Memorable
People are more likely to talk about your event for much longer because they will remember the live performance. The more people tell their friends about it, the more people that will become interested in attending a live music event, which draws in an even bigger audience and more customers for your next event.
