22 May Is Live Music Excessive?
I was always wondering, ever since I was a wee young one, “Was I born with the Excessive Gene?”. I was never one to be satisfied easily. I was never the guy who was happy being the best. I always wanted to be great. Frustrating when it came to sports, yes. But thankfully I found something I could do well. Music. Specifically playing piano. I didn’t come fast nor easy for me. My obsessive nature allowed me to keep going even when I wasn’t really cutting it on the music scene.
So that’s why when I heard from a potential client who wanted to hire us for their fundraiser entertainment that they thought “Live Music was a bit excessive for our event.” I thought “Wow! I’m right on target again.”
I don’t mind hearing “No.” since I have been hearing it most of my life. Plus, I know when I get rejected, I’m all that much closer to hearing someone say “Yes!”
Live music at your next event is not excessive. It is perfect because, nowadays, no one expects it. It used to be there was a ton of bands out there performing and doing gigs. But now it seems like the only time you hear live music anymore it is a wedding music bands or at church.
That’s why we get called repeatedly, year after year, by our customers who are hosting graduation parties or charity events or company events. Live music works. I may even go so far as to argue that it is necessary.
It brings your donors back year after year. They bring their friends. They want to hear good music and have a few laughs and enjoy themselves. Live music adds color to this otherwise bland and monochrome world.
So thank you rejected potential future client. I take it as a compliment that Live Music is Excessive. We are.
