The wedding is over the ceremony was beautiful and now it’s time to have some fun at the reception. Most of the time it is easy to just hire a DJ who will play music nonstop and keep your guests entertained. However, a DJ will have only a specific kind of music that he will play that may not cater to all the needs of your guests. Thus, having a lie band will make it easier for you to get your guests out of their chairs and onto the dance floor.
There are a few things that the live band can do to make sure that the guests are always on their feet.
Allow the guests to request songs:
As it is a live band and nowadays you can get the music sheets for almost every song out there a live band will allow you to have a wide selection of songs. Although you may have decided a certain playlist with the band it is always a good idea to take song requests from the guests so that you know that they will be up and dancing and that they also enjoy the music. You never know you may even hear a song that you love and hadn’t heard before.
The lead singer in the live band that you choose can interact with the guest and encourage them to get on their feet. This is something that a DJ would never be able to do as there is a certain unique presence that a live band gets to the wedding that a DJ cannot match up to.
Play dance numbers that you know that the guests know the steps to:
There are certain songs that are very popular with all ages and almost everyone knows the dance steps to. By playing such songs you make sure that there are people on your dance floor. These can be songs like the birdy dance, the hokey pokey song, the cha cha slide, etc. These songs can be enjoyed by people of all ages and they never go out of style.
Play the latest numbers:
Lastly, once all the oldies have gone home and you just have the youngsters waiting for the after party your band can play the latest numbers and you can dance the night away.
Thus, live bands have become a rage for weddings in Singapore.
