During occasions and special events, music is something that keeps things lively. In all honesty, even at casual times of our lives, we simply cannot imagine it without music. Have you ever heard of the song ABBA’s “Thank You For The Music”? Parts of the lyrics had mentioned, “…thanks for all the joy they’re bringing. Who can live without it? I ask in all honesty, what would life be? Without a song or dance – what are we?” So, indeed, we say you for the music. We may not be exactly able to trace who started it or how was it invented but one thing is for sure, music has existed for as long as humans did.
As years went by and technology has developed quickly, there are lots of things that changed. Entertainment started it out through live performances of singing and dancing. Then, cameras, recorders, radios, and televisions came along. They offered us motion picture and recorded music that we can hear and watch again and again so we can enjoy it even more. Now, you can see young millennials doing almost everything while listening to music. They do a simple walk or a job with their earphones on, they wake up with their favorite song, and they would even listen to music as they let the time pass by on the train. It is a great joy to all of us that we can bring music anywhere we go.
In times that we celebrate, music also comes along, and it has been a dispute whether it is better to put on a recorded and a perfect song or hiring a performing live band or musicians is better. People have so immersed with the availability of music at hand that it seems like they’ve forgotten about eh beauty of hearing it being performed live. Do you still remember when was the last time you listened to a live band play?
There are lots of reasons why we should pick live music and why it is better, especially during times that are important to us like weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, etc. Sure, having a recorded one keeps mistakes at bay, but a live performance brings more magic to it. Adam from Around Town Entertainment knows this has got something to do with what we hear and see. Hearing each instrument and that melodic voice turning into harmony is just very heart warming. But now, imagine getting to hear and see it at the same time: how the guitar is strumming, the ivories of the piano clicking, and that beautiful sound from the singer’s mouth- it just becomes an entirely fantastic vision. We somehow get to feel the music even more because we see the emotion that is given as the singers and musicians perform.
A recorded music will surely keep it smooth, but a live band will feed more of the energy that they see in the couple. They can easily adjust according to the mood and the pace, and therefore, things become incredibly intimate and sincere. Isn’t that something that we’d all look forward to in our weddings? Live music may not be exactly perfect but compared with anything else; it is a lot way better.
