Every year, we have the fun of providing live music for Christmas parties to our varied clients. Both corporate office ones, and private celebrations too. The most common act requests at this time of year are gospel singers, carol singers and sometimes string quartets. Not all events want to feature Christmas live music all the time. Sometimes we just play a few upbeat pop songs punctuated with the occasional Xmas tune.
If you want to make a short sharp statement, then a few carol singers or gospel singers should perform one or maximum 2 sets of Xmas music. Too much and no matter how fabulous the singers are, your guests will start to tire of the non-stop Xmas music. It’ll be the musical equivalent of too many mince pies. If anything, you want them to be left wanting a bit more. Depending on the event, you may later on have a DJ providing more festive fun anyway. Or a live band.
Last year, memorable events were our gospel choir singing in Linley Belgravia for a wonderful charity event. Also we provided our superb DJ and electric violin and sax act for a private high end corporate event (we’re not allowed to name names but it was a really fabulous do) in Mandarin Oriental and they rocked the party.
This year we have one of our String Quartets playing mostly classical but with a few Christmas tunes thrown into the mix. That’s in the Royal College of Physicians and we’re looking forward to another grand event. Also the gospel choir are doing a mix of Xmas parties and Xmas weddings in various venues, including Islington Town Hall.
If you’re still looking for live Christmas party music at this stage of the year, drop us a line. There may not be as much choice available as many acts are almost completely booked up. However, we love to help with last minute bookings and filling slots and making our all-important clients happy! Contact us today with any questions or dates.
