Fundraisers are events that have to be planned meticulously. Not only do you have to convince people to come out, you have to impress them enough so that they’ll want to make an additional contribution to the cause. One of the easiest ways to ensure crowd satisfaction at your fundraiser is to have a live band.
Seeing live music is a popular pastime, but it’s not often associated with benefits or fundraisers; most people will expect a stuffy dinner. Why not surprise them with a really great live band?
Not only can you ask the band to tailor the set list to your event, but occasionally interrupting a live band that has been interacting with your audience the whole night with info regarding your cause can be less jarring than suddenly turning off the playlist. Plus, if the crowd is engaging with the band, they’ll give your announcements and information that you share about your cause the same attention.
Another thing to consider is that with a live band, you’ll be able to give your audience an experience for the price of their admission ticket. It’s nice to have something a little extra, besides a meal, to share with your audience. They are, after all, contributing to a cause that you believe in.
A live band will give your audience an authentic experience that they can take with them once the fundraiser is over, and will make your fundraiser an event to remember. Plus, everyone will be willing to come to the next one.
