6 Steps for Hiring a Party Band

1.Pick a genre

Party bands come in all shapes and sizes. The first step in hiring a party band is picking a band

that will play the type of music you would like. Many party bands specialize in a type of music

or theme. There are rock bands, decade-themed bands, cover bands, kids bands and a variety of

other specialties. It is good to be clear on what type of music you would like at your party before

looking for a good party band.

2. Research

Party bands are more accessible than people think. Researching a party band could be done on

the internet. Many party bands have websites, and videos to advertise their services. Even with

the internet, the best way to research a band is through word of mouth. Ask a friend that was

recently married or threw a party. They may know some great party bands and can help you get

in contact with the party band.

3. Check their references

Once you have a party band that you think is a good fit check their references. Ask people that

may have used the party band before. These people can give an honest opinion. If you don’t

know anyone, ask the party band if they have any references they can provide.

Some good questions to ask the references would be if the band showed up on time? Did they

play throughout the whole set? Were they accommodating to the crowd? How were they?

4. Audition

Party bands are not made equally. It is important to audition the party band. The best way is to

ask the band if you can check out their next performance. This is good because you can see the

party band in action. If the band does not have a performance for you to watch you can ask them

to play something for you. You want to make sure that the party band sound matches the sound

you would like for your party.

5. Hire the Party Band

if the bands sound matches what you are looking

If the bands sound matches what you are looking for it is time for the contract. It is good to make

sure that both you and the party band are on the same page about expectation and payments.

When hiring the band it is good to know what time they will come to set up, will they require

additional equipment and when are they expecting payment. These are just a few of the things

that should be gone over before the day of the event.

6. Party

You went through all this work now you deserve to party. Let the party band do its job and keep

you dancing all night. If they do a great job be sure to let everyone know how great the party

band did so they can get more gigs.
