Live music can make a huge difference when it comes to celebrating an event or a wedding. Picture your celebration in beautiful Punta Cana and imagine adding a live performance by a talented local musician. Or maybe a band? How about a DJ?
If you’re having a hard time deciding what’s best, we prepped some tips on choosing the most adequate option. We’ll also go through some things to consider when booking musicians for events and weddings in the Dominican Republic.
1. The Occasion
If you are having a small, tranquil gathering like a private or a corporate dinner, or you’re looking for music for your wedding ceremony or cocktail hour, it might be best to choose a soloist or a duo performance. Having one, or a couple of musicians playing live while you’re enjoying your meal or sipping on a cocktail under the palm trees is a whole vibe.
If you’re looking to get the party started and want to dance the night away, you can’t go wrong with a combination of a band and a DJ. It’s guaranteed to have everyone up on the dance floor, having a great time and creating memories for a lifetime.
Pro tip: Before booking live musicians for events or weddings in the Dominican Republic it’s best to confirm with your venue if they will allow live music. Many venues and villas do, but depending on their location, it might be allowed up until certain hours such as midnight. Your property administrator should know and advise you best, so make sure to confirm with them before booking live music in Punta Cana and the DR.
2. The Performance
Depending on the length of the live music performance, here are some things to consider. While a DJ can play for 3-4 hours without a break, live musicians usually play for up to 2 hours, and will maybe need a break in between sets.
It’s also good to take into account that musicians working on events and weddings in the Dominican Republic will come early in the day to do setup and soundcheck at the venue. Depending on your event schedule, they might not have time to eat at all during the day, so make sure you have a table set for them to take a break and grab a bite.
3. The Music Styles
If by live music in Punta Cana you’re immediately thinking bachata and merengue, you’re probably right. But there are also a lot of different live music options with a wide repertoire of songs and styles.
If you’re a fan of country music, rock n roll or even blues, choose a soloist, duo or a band that can add to the vibe of your event. Same goes for pop, retro, jazz, latin music or any other style – you can count on experienced musicians for events and weddings in the Dominican Republic to bring your celebration to life.
