    Free Guide - The Key Considerations

    Blog Two: Will your band understand the nature of your event?

    Your band should have an understanding of how they fit in with your chosen venue, caterer, photographer and florist. You wouldn’t hire Black Sabbath to play at your deeply traditional wedding attended by grandparents and great grandparents. A good band knows that they should complement the event, not steal the show. Divas are out, supportive, collaborative professionals are in.

     Your band should expect the unexpected. Not you.

    Just rocking up and bashing out a few tunes doesn’t cut it. A professional band will understand that there’s a lot more to playing a successful gig than that. They will be prepared to expect the unexpected. Are the electrical outlets further away than was promised? Is the stage half the size? Does Auntie Florence think they should all be wearing ties?

    Things can change at the last minute, particularly at events such as awards dinners. Any good band worth their salt will be flexible, quickly understanding what the issue is and proactively solving any problems that arise. The last thing you want is a moody, uncooperative bunch of musicians you have to deal with on top of everything else.

    We’ve never been to two events that were the same. There’s so many factors that contribute to making it feel like a personal do, and one of them should be the band. Whether the people there are big, party-going extroverts or considerably more traditional, it’s important that the band is right.

    It should feel like it fits in, like it was meant to be there. This is the icing on the cake for many people, and if it’s right, the band can be the catalyst that turns a great occasion into a spectacular event. And a large part of corporate function band hire comes down to trusting your band to have the knowledge and experience necessary to make it happen.

      Hello and welcome to a brand new year with us here on Planner’s Pod! We have lots of new and exciting things in store for all of you and we do hope you stay with us as we unveil them.

      In this episode, we decided to start things up by having Metropolis’ very own Nick Ingram, our Creative Director, for the first time here on the show. Many of you have been curious and have asked us about how we do things in the company. So, what better way to open this up for discussion than having a team member on board.

      Here we discuss the ins and outs of how to manage a live-band company, what sort of sticky situations we all get into and how we try to deal with those, as well as how to engage with clients and knowing them on a personal level to give them a unique and wonderful musical experience during their event.
