Event Music – Why is it so important?

THE HEART OF ANY EVENT

Being an event producer as well as a DJ gives opportunities to see events from both sides of the coin – the designing, planning and production perspective and the performing and entertainment side.

It’s an interesting combination, but one thing which is always really obvious is that music connects everything – the people, the event, the overall feel and vibe.

Here we discuss how event music drives your event, the power it has to evoke mood and atmosphere and why it’s important to get it right.

Live Event Music

EVOCATIVE, EMOTIONAL, UPLIFTING

The right event music evokes emotion, feelings and memories like nothing else.

Hearing a specific track will transport you back to that moment in time. You’ll remember what you were doing as a child, on holiday, or perhaps recall an intense gym workout.

Music causes people to cry, creates extreme states of happiness and gets them on the dance floor ready to strut their stuff. This is why it’s important to select the right event music and inject the correct mood for your event.

GETTING EVENT MUSIC RIGHT

So, what types of music should you play and when? Get it wrong and you risk upsetting people and ruining your whole event. It’s important to get the style and timings right.

During dinner or reception, music should be quiet and very much in the background so that people can chat, mingle and feel relaxed. At this point, any up tempo music would spoil the occasion and be totally inappropriate.

The reverse is true for dance time. You need a range of lively, enthusiastic, rousing beats to get people on the dance floor. Low key music really wouldn’t work here.

CREATE A VIBE, SET THE SCENE

Carefully selected event music creates a vibe and sets the scene.

Imagine a CEO about to take the stage to present an important speech or the first dance at a wedding. Both are different types of spotlight moments, yet each requires a different style. Introductory, breaking a silence, yet creating a different atmosphere.

Perhaps you could find a track relating to the subject of a speech or something you know guests will understand. First wedding dance tracks could be romantic, slow or choreographed to showcase dance skills, but equally could be personalised to evoke memories of a special moment or meaningful lyrics.
