When Melbourne Dj hire are booked for events, we usually go to the event thinking that we are the solo act. There are rare occasions where our Melbourne Dj actually work with live professional bands. There was a public event that Melbourne Dj hire worked at where Melbourne Dj hire was booked to only play the dance hits towards the end of the night and the professional band was hired to create atmosphere and engage with the guests and put on a show.
We have worked with a few professional bands over the years but this band in particular was very good in orchestrating the crowd. They joked around and called out groups of crowds directly to get them dancing and drinking. They also played a couple of games that were very successful in getting all the guests attention. There was a games where the band member selected 5 people to come up on stage and each person got a bell. Every time the band member pointed to you, you would have to ring the bell. Then the game started and the bells created a tune and a song. It was a great way to get attendees of all ages to play the game.
The second game was a dancing game, the band member taught 5 people how to do a particular dance and whoever was the best dancer got a prize at the end. This was great for all the attendee yo watch and also have a laugh at the funny dancing. Then at the end of it the crowd cheered to select the best dancer.
Overall this professional band sound great! It sounded like they could just pick up from any moment and start playing a song. They either work together a lot or have a lot of band practice. The front band member who was also the singer and MC was confident and funny and really contributed to the fun vibe of the event.
After the professional band finished their set it was time for Melbourne Dj hire to play the dance tracks. It was a great day working and working with professional bands is something different and a great way to get engagement with the crowd.
