It can be a big challenge year in and out to try and book the best bands around for the christmas bash.
Book the right act and you're everyone's hero, and, if by chance you get it wrong and book an inexperienced band that can’t deliver live, then you might be handing in your P45
If you book with a reputable company they can advise you on the pros and cons of each act based around your budget. Be it small, medium or large!
Some key questions you should ask:
- Do you actually perform any Christmas Hits ?
- Can they do an early load in before guests arrive ?
- How long is your set ?
- What styles of music do you do ?
- Do you bring your own sound system.
Most good bands will always perform for 1 1/2 hours or maximum 2 hours, with a break.
Be sure to ask if they can bring their own sound system, as this can make a price jump up by €400 - €500 plus, so “Always good to ask"
A superb way to gauge if they are any good is to talk directly to their booker and get a feel on what works best and how that can fit your Christmas party.
They can help you with creative ways for adding essential songs that will ensure a full dancefloor.
Keep an eye on the latest new trends music wise also and finish the night off with 30 minutes for classic Xmas party faves.
