When it comes to trying to find the best bands in Essex there are a few things that you ought to take in to consideration. Here at Sensation Band we know a thing or two about music, and event planning, so we will talk you through some of the most important things you need to think about.
What you need to find out about your potential bands in Essex
The first thing you ought to find out is what do they do? This may seem like a silly question at first – hopefully they can either play an instrument and/or sing. However, that’s a pretty vague description of a band’s abilities, and it won’t help you when it comes to discovering if they are suitable for your event or not.
You need to know if they are a duo or a lager band. You need to know if they only perform a specific genre of music, and if they have a set playlist that they are not able to deviate from. This will all be relevant when it comes to deciding on the look and feel of your event. Do you want people to be up and dancing on that dancefloor, or do you want them to be able to tap away to the music whilst they are having their coffee? These are only things that you can answer, but by finding out this information from your band, you will be able to ascertain if they are suitable.
The next thing you ought to ask is what experience do they have and what do other people have to say about them? This is vitally important as you want a band that isn’t about to do its first gig at your event. If they have experience they will be able to handle any on the day delays or “problems” that may arise (it happens all too often), and will be able to remain professional at all times.
You will also want to take time to see what other people have to say about them. Did they arrive on time? Did they do what they said they would? What did guests think of them? Did they deliver to the brief or expectations that you gave them?
Find out if they have a particular type of event that they specialise in? Some groups are better suited to ladies lunches or corporate events than lavish weddings in modern settings. Find out what they usually cater for and if your event is wildly different, then it may be worth looking elsewhere. Equally, find out if they have ever gigged at your venue before. If they have then they will have no doubt developed a relationship with the venue staff, which can ensure that the whole evening runs a lot smoother.
