The Z Street Speakeasy Band performed at a corporate event in Fort Lauderdale, Fl on October 19, 2015. The posh event had a playful side to it; the guests came decked out to the nines in vintage attire. They danced til the very end. The guests always enjoy being part of the event, participating in it, as opposed to being a observer. By getting guests involved, whether it be dressing for the theme or dancing all night to vintage tunes morphing into today's current hit, the guests appreciate the connection. People want to be part of the event. Gone are the days of being a bystander; watching events unfold. Bringing guests into a ballroom, asking them sit through videos, speeches, skits and bland music is no longer enough for today's client. Make the guests happy. Involve them. Let them be part of the experience. They will thank you for it. They will remember it. They will rehire it. Every client is a gift. As performers, it's our job to see to it that the event is something they will experience personally. Not from a observers standpoint, but as a participant.
Guests appreciate listening to music that they recognize. The Z Street Band performs a wildly diverse selection of songs. Here they are at last night's event, playing dinner music before the dancing begins. Dinner music has changed through the years, and the Z Street Band plays recognizable, spirited tunes during dinner. Music that guests can talk over.
Guests enjoy being a part of the event. We aren't talking about inflatable guitars and dated props on stage...we're talking about getting the audience involved through dressing for the theme party. Dancing on a beautiful lit up dance floor and being a participant. Not an observer. Guests desire to be a part of the experience. They want to connect with the experience. Allow them that privilege.
