Advice For Choosing Musicians For Special Events

By Chloe Gib

Music can enliven many special occasions, whether it is a wedding, a corporate event or a special surprise for a birthday party. There are a lot of different types of New Jersey musicians out there. However it is worth preparing in order to find the ideal one for your particular occasion.

The good thing about looking for people to book is that you can often find them by going to local events and venues that would probably attend anyway. This could be the day that you find the latest British singer songwriters before they become big in the charts or a soulful acoustic guitarist who will add extra depth and emotion to an occasion.

For example you may love punk rock. However punk rock may not be the ideal choice for a corporate event or an awards ceremony. What you have to do is look online to find reasonably safe music that most people attending can enjoy without fear of controversy or alienating a large proportion of the people attending.

Sometimes it is not that obvious. They may have clips on their website that make them look professional. However those edited highlights may not reflect their overall performance over the course of a gig or series of gigs. This is why ideally you should go to venues yourself to see them perform.

The advantage with this approach is that it is less biased. You will be able to see how they react to the audience and how they engage with them. You can also get an idea of what kind of music they play and whether it is appropriate for the venue you will be playing at or the kind of audience they will get.

Equally you should be prepared to discuss with them your own special requirements. They may have to follow a dress code for certain venues. Some performers will take requests but most will require notice in order to learn songs for specific occasions. You may wish them to make announcements such as when the bride and groom do their first dance at the wedding or you may prefer to get someone else to do this for you.

In simple terms there are New Jersey musicians that are appropriate for a wide range of events. It is about comparing what is available and considering what will be appropriate. Look online to find different types of performers in your local area and choosing the ones that are right for your specific event.
