Choosing a Ceilidh Band for your event

Making sure you have the right entertainment for your event.

When it comes to organising an event with musical entertainment there are many different things that one has to consider in order to make it as successful and enjoyable as possible. If these areas are carefully looked at in detail whilst planning the event, then it will have a much higher chance of great success.

Choice of Music

Of course, right at the top of the list is the decision as to the type of music required for the vent and how this will fit in with the other aspects. Background music by a solo pianist will provide a great ambience during a meal for instance, whereas a Scottish Ceilidh Band will ensure a great fun, social night for all attendees.

Finding the best entertainment to suit the venue

The type of entertainment also depends on the venue in which it is to be held. If one if looking at a dancing scenario, then there must be adequate space on the dancefloor, or room for the venue to lay down a good-sized floor if there isn’t already on there.

Types of Bands

Again, the type of band is crucial to the success of the event. Bands range from Pop, Rock, Funk, Jazz, Salsa, Ceilidh Bands and many more. There is a great variety in the line-up of all of these types of bands, and that must also be taken into consideration to suit the size of venue and the budget of the event.

How to choose the most suitable band for your function

To make a choice as to the most suitable band for your function, you must consider the type of event, theme of the event, the target audience or attendees if it is a corporate function, and pick a style of music that will appeal to the greatest range of your guests.

Listening or Dancing

At any type of social event, there will always be some guests who are not able to participate in the dancing due to age, fitness or other reason. It is therefore essential that the music being provided for the guests is enjoyable to listen to if one is not dancing. Scottish Ceilidh Bands are ideal in this situation as the music is lively, tuneful and the sort of thing that people will naturally tap their feet along to and enjoy whether they are able to dance or not.

Many people only get the chance to participate in Scottish ceilidh dancing when they attend weddings in Scotland. There are however, many public ceilidhs which take place regularly all over the country and it is worth seeking out what is happening in your area so that you can enjoy this great form of entertainment all year round.
