In this blog, we’ll be doing a deep dive on the elements that make up an awesome Corporate Band. With this information, you’ll know exactly what to look for when you’re hunting for one.
It goes without saying, if you plan on hiring a live band, whether it be an Acoustic Trio, 4-piece band or 5-piece band, you want to see talented performers. Not only should the musicians be able to play their instruments, but their timing should be on point. You want to see that the lead singer is a highly talented vocalist as well.
In most Corporate Bands, there will be one or two people that do all the band admin, and behind-the-scenes coordination. That is certainly the case at Ms Lexi & Celestial Band. MBA Graduate Lexi Ross does all the organising, preparing and coordinating of the band, whilst also using her vocal talents as the lead singer. Having a dedicated band leader is what separates a group from being a ‘hobby’ band, compared to a professionally run organisation. Just like in the corporate world, the best organisations have structure, planning, and clear role definition.
In 2021 it’s no longer good enough just to have a great sound, it’s important to have an online presence as well. You can tell a lot about a business, by how well it maintains its website, and other social media channels. When you are checking out a band, be sure to go across to Facebook, Instagram and YouTube, to see how often your prospective Corporate Band posts. Was their last gig in August 2018?… Oh oh…. Could be a red flag that they’re not the most active Melbourne music band.
Backed By Positive Reviews
Good reviews online count for something! Online reviews are a great way to assess how well a business serves its clientele. Are they a 4-star business, or 5 star? Sometimes you can check out a band’s worst reviews to see if there’s any red flags there.
Demonstrated History of Successful Performances
Have a look online for photo and video evidence of past Melbourne Corporate Band gigs. Look for videos that were taken at the gigs. Videos of the band playing, will give you an idea of their live performance ability.
Ask About Their Rehearsal Schedule
In this day and age, many freelance musicians don’t rehearse together. It may be a surprise to the average person, but a lot of bands simply have the musicians rock up on the day. Ask your prospect band leader, how often the full band gets together to rehearse. Most professional musicians should be practicing every day and rehearsing with the band in question regularly.
Agreeable Booking Terms
Always ask to see the Terms & Conditions! Especially nowadays during the pandemic. Make sure you are comfortable with the booking arrangement before ‘signing on the dotted line’ so to speak. At Ms Lexi & Celestial Band, we’ve greatly reduced our booking fee so that both our Corporate Clients and our wedding couples, feel comfortable with the agreement. We have flexible booking terms. If COVID restrictions prevent your event from going ahead, we’ll move the booking date for free. We also only take a small amount as a deposit, so that our clients feel more comfortable booking.
