It has been found in a UK study that music can change the way you feel and act. This research suggests music can influence us a lot. It can impact illness, depression, spending, productivity, and our perception of the world.
Do you have memories that are linked to any music?— Lord Vincent Van Mendoza (@digitallourd) July 6, 2022
The importance of music in an event
Music serves a variety of functions at events, and the choice of music for each occasion defines the atmosphere that is intended to be created. Its existence and qualities are heavily influenced by the experience and fusion of feelings. The environment that is created by music depends on a number of factors, including space, people, the type of event, decoration, and of course, the music itself. It is a social and cultural custom that can signify several objectives while also defining the caliber of an event. Typically, music is peaceful when people are at first meetings, such as during a cocktail hour or lunch. However, it can also have some rhythm and be harmonically stimulating, acting as a wake-up call to subsequent, more energetic phases of the gathering.
On the other hand, when it comes to the party itself, the music must be excellent. Music is the cornerstone of any celebration, and the variety of musical genres encourages dancing and keeps the dance floor lively. The melodies, vocals, rhythms, and lyrics establish intensity, making music the focal point of a party. Music also helps to identify important and significant events, like speeches or unique interpreting moments. Reproduced music is crucial in this particular instance, in relation to certain moments, to establish the proper scene and deliver the message. To produce an encounter that becomes an unforgettable moment, the reproduction and music mix must foster vitality and fun.
Music sets the mood
Did you know that music is typically played slower and softer in supermarkets? It makes customers stroll more slowly and linger, which should motivate them to make larger purchases. Anywhere, music creates a mood and serves as a guide for visitors and customers. Do you want your visitors to dance? Play some powerful Beyonce or Michael Jackson songs. Do you like your visitors to mingle and converse with one another? Reduce the volume and start some Enya or Sade. When it’s time for guests to leave at the conclusion of the night, play upbeat music to get them moving in that direction.
Start with the theme and guest list to help you choose the ambiance you want to create for your guests, and then list a few adjectives to capture the feeling. You can share those words with the live band or DJ you hire so they can better build a playlist for your event.
Music brings people together
Music can bring people together, especially when they attend an event that plays music that can transcend age, race, ethnicity, and gender. When there is amazing music playing at a party or event, it encourages people to interact with one another by singing along to well-known songs. If a piece of music is catchy enough, even if partygoers don’t know the words, it will still make them want to get up and dance with one another. Never undervalue the power of music to start a party or to get people pumped up for what’s coming up. Utilize it wisely and to your benefit to assemble your guests for a memorable evening.
Music energizes the guests
Save your energetic songs for the main event of your event because music uplifts your audience. You can start playing the equivalent of a “dinner music set” as guests arrive; this music is often mellow and jazzy. This will prevent attendees from revealing too much too soon while they mingle, eat hors d’oeuvres, and get ready for the more exciting portion of the evening. You might occasionally need to take breaks throughout the night. You can save some of your mid-tempo songs for the part of the evening when there are special guest speakers or a cake cutting. When your party is about to get really going, use the music’s energy to your advantage.
Music creates memories
Most people have at least one song that can transport them to a joyful, sad, or thrilling occasion in the past. It is crucial to select music that will provide your visitors with this same type of feeling so that every time they hear it, they will be reminded of your event. Music will always be the soundtrack of everyone’s life.
If something can transform a dull moment into a special memory, that something is music. Music is, no doubt, a true game-changer with the power of metamorphosis. This essential element generates experiences, arises our emotions, and changes our mood (Barcelo Sevilla Renaciemento, 2017).
Music ideas for various types of event
For business parties, go with a jazz band because this genre of music creates comfort with structure. Besides, it doesn’t interfere with the social environment of the party or the business goals of the company.
For a wedding reception, you could go with pop music. Contemporary and pop are best for wedlock parties. In particular, at the wedding reception, you could look for energetic pop songs.
As I started my career in the event industry, this used to be my playlist for wedlock parties:
