At LiveBand Entertainment, we’re big believers in the benefits of booking a live band for you, your event, and your guests. A fantastic live band is an investment we think is well worth making for your next party, celebration, or special event. But if you’re not quite convinced, read on for our top 5 reasons to book a live band.
1. Boost the mood
Music has been shown to contribute to the release of oxytocin and dopamine. Also known as our ‘happy hormones’, these two chemicals help us to feel happy and experience pleasure. So if you’re looking to get guests grinning, our great range of live bands to hire are just the ticket.
2. Bring people together
People who sing together, stay together. Music, and singing with others, have been shown to be powerful ways in which we make social bonds and connect with each other. So singing along to a sensational live band with your guests won’t just improve your next event – it may well improve your relationships too. Plus, enjoying live music together is always a great way to make memories and reminisce on days gone by with your nearest and dearest.
3. Increased life expectancy
If you’re looking for reasons to book a live band, you can’t do much better than a boost to your life expectancy! A scientific study commissioned by 02 suggests that fortnightly gig attendance could extend life expectancy by as much as 9 years. The same 02 study also found that spending just 20 minutes at a gig increased people’s feelings of wellbeing by 21% – more than 20 minutes of yoga and 20 minutes of dog-walking combined. How’s that for value for money?
4. Improved brain function
Want to get your grey matter going? You’re in the right place. Listening to music has been shown to reduce stress and improve cognitive function in everything from linguistic and spatial processing to memory. Something that’s worth remembering (pun intended) next time you’re looking for reasons to book a live band!
5. The WOW factor
Finally, we may be biassed but we can’t help but think that a live band is the BEST way to level up any event. As well as offering entertainment, fun and giving any party a focus, live music can really bring the WOW factor to your special celebrations. So if you’re looking for a way to make an impression, get people moving, and leave them with magical memories of a fun-filled event, it’s got to be a live band!
