Think about the number of guests, their similarities and differences, their age-group and musical tastes;
Many live bands and music acts offer a great deal of flexibility in their repertoire to cater for a wide variety of genres and musical tastes. Some acts will let you personalise the music by allowing you to select certain songs from their repertoire or dedicate a song to a particular guest.
Think about the location of your event, the number of rooms the event will be held in, the size of the rooms and so on. Is it indoor, outdoor? Where will the entertainment take place?
Meet and greet artistes can move with the flow of the party or blend into the crowd to surprise later. Spoof guests and singing waiters create the laughs and surprises, a solo saxophonist can create a focal point with ambience, a live band and disco in the main room will keep everyone on the dance floor.
