We’re talking Summer: we’re talking Summer parties and of course at Viva Live Music: entertainment! You have the venue; you have the reason for the party; you have the catering organised – now think of your entertainment!
As a leading live music company for events, we are passionate about how live music transforms any event. And as many summer parties are outside: whether they are in stunning courtyards, the grounds of a venue or even a private garden. Selecting the right live music for your event comes down to what vibe you want from the event, as well as the theme and age of the guests. Here are some of our many talented musicians, who would be great at your event.
The acoustic folk vibe duo. This duo is fabulous: they are versatile with where they can perform. As they are acoustic, they beat MOST restricted sound restrictions at venues, and can change locations. A visual duo, guests love watching and listening to them. They are great as either featured or background music and they have a wide variety of songs, performed with their own twist of stunning vocal harmonics, guitar and percussion.
For an historical themed event – such as medieval or Tudor, why not book our Tudor Musicians. They sound great; and wearing costumes, there are plenty of photo opportunities for guests. They mix and mingle and create an exciting ambience for a themed event.
Ceilidh band. Ceilidhs outside are a GREAT entertainment option! They could provide background music as guests eat, then ‘up’ the energy levels with a caller to get your guests engaged and dancing. Of course our wonderful callers teach the dances. All great fun!
Harpist. There is nothing more romantic than a harpist to perform in an enclosed courtyard. The music is magical and below is our harpist performing at the Knot Garden at Hatfield House.
Female Vocal Duo Our two gorgeous female singers perform a wide variety of songs with perfect harmonies – from 1940s to current favourite hits. Great for background music, but you could also increase the energy after dinner and include them as featured entertainment.
Vintage Vibe Band Our band is performing at the wonderful Middle Temple, at a summer party. They are brilliant for background music with some mph! But also if you wish, they will get the guests dancing after dinner.
Accordion: everyone loves an accordion, and this instrument is brilliant because the player can mix and mingle, engaging guests. Our lovely player has a very wide range of musical styles, and we could curate a background ‘sound track’ of music the accordion player performs to fit with your vision of the event.
Brass band: for a larger event, a brass band, performing arrangements of traditional and more current songs is a MUST! The sound travels and creates a unique background music option, which adds to any occasion.
String Duo: this is a lovely option for a smaller location. The sound of these two instruments travel easily. A very popular option for smaller celebration parties. Also available: string quartets and our cello quartet.
Jazz band it is always so exciting to have a jazz band performing. The quality of a GOOD band, the sound and interaction is wonderful. Below is one of our bands performing at the opening of Centre Parcs in Bedfordshire, to welcome guests!
I hope this has given you a few ideas. We would be able to talk through specific requirements for the musicians to play outside. If you would like to discuss your event and to book musicians contact us or call 0800 0938464
