Creating Christmas cheer with music from singing guitarist at Christmas parties
‘Tis the season to be jolly!
The Christmas season is edging ever nearer and so we begin to look ahead to Christmas parties and celebrating the festive season. Party organisers face the task of not only choosing the right venue for the celebrations but how their guests will be entertained.
One thing’s for sure, an evening banging out pre-recorded Christmas hits will be off the menu for most. It’s the musical equivalent of too much mulled wine!
When you’re hosting a more intimate gathering, it’s all about creating the right atmosphere that gets people in the mood. Whether that be an early evening drinks reception or a party at home surrounded by friends and family, the right music can turn a bog standard evening into a truly memorable one, your guests will talk about for weeks to come.
So what’s the best way to get the right tone for your Christmas party?
Find the right venue
Booking the perfect Christmas party venue can be a stressful process.
The venue you select will ultimately be dependent on the number of guests but also on other factors, like their dietary requirements, access and space for entertainment. Do you want singing carols or will you need sofas for great-uncle John to fall asleep on? Traditional Christmas turkey or a modern alternative?
Here are the 5 essential steps you should follow when organising a Christmas party:
#1 Set the date – get it penciled in as early as possible and get your guests to save the date
#2 Set a budget – this determines what kind of venue you can hire, as well as the entertainment
#3 Set the theme – sophisticated or circus skills? Winter Wonderland or Wild West cowboys? This is the heartbeat of your event so pick carefully.
#4 Book the entertainment – more on this below.
#5 Choose the food and order the drinks.
How do you create Christmas cheer with music from solo musicians at Christmas parties?
Music is always key to any party so you’ll need to make sure it’s done properly.
Adding some live music to your festivities will always add a certain wow factor that people remember.
If you are looking to entertain your guests with some upbeat Christmas tunes combined with some well-known classics, then there is no better entertainment for you than a singing guitarist.
What is so special about a singing guitarist?
A singing guitarist is more affordable than carol singers or string quartets
A singing guitarist can perform acoustically. He or she can freely roam around your venue and mingle with your guests.
Or we can use an amplifier and provide entertainment in a larger room.
A singing guitarist will be able to tailor their play-list to include all the tunes you want.
I cannot stress how important this is. A talented, professional and experienced singing guitarist will be booked up months in advance. Book early to avoid disappointment.
I hope I’ve answered some of your questions and given you enough insight on how a singing guitarist can be the perfect choice for your Christmas party entertainment.
