Function band

When you first start planning for a function, whether it’s corporate or something more personal, you can easily get caught up in the excitement.  While is it very exciting as you leaf through a brochure showcasing ice sculptures and perfectly styled decorations, you can quickly realise how hard it can be. From finding the right venue to organising the caterers, to choosing the best function band to getting the dress code right there is a lot to consider.

Sensation Band are your function band

Here at Sensation Band we know precisely how much hard work goes in to organising any form of function or event, whether it’s a private party or a big corporate do or hospitality for sponsors.  The only thing that is always the same is that it has to be perfect (and within budget!).

While we may have seen a lot of events in our day we can’t help you find the right colours or props, and we can’t help you with that all important seating plan. However, we can give you lots of tips for how to get the right entertainment.

Any band worth their salt will want to find out as much about your event as possible.  Yes, bands will always want to take a booking rather than have to miss out on one, but there is no point turning up to an event and finding out too late that you are wholly unsuitable as entertainment for the audience there.  It doesn’t look good on anybody and is going to completely ruin the mood.

Here at Sensation Band we will always take the time to find out the important information about your event.  Who is going to be coming? Why is the event being held?  Do you want to get people up and dancing or do you just want a bit of live mood music to play in the background?  What sort of musical genres are people looking for?  Do you want them to be able to put in requests on the night?  Do you want them to be able to put in requests prior to the event?

These are all important things that you should be considering and that your chosen band should be making you aware of if you haven’t already thought of them.  If your venue is small and intimate then you do not want a loud and lively band bellowing out over the PA system.  If you don’t have a dance floor then there is no point in us trying to get people up and dancing – that’s a recipe for disaster, especially if the Prosecco is flowing.

Don’t forget that here at Sensation Band we can also provide sound equipment and DJs, so if a live band is not what is right for your event or venue, then we may still be able to help.  Don’t hesitate to get in touch with us to find out how we can help you.
