There are a hundred and one things to think about when organising an event, whether 
it's a drinks reception or product launch, an exhibition or even a private dinner party. 
While music is yet one more thing to have to make decisions about, it is actually one 
of the most important elements in determining the success of an event.

It's All About Ambience...
When people first arrive at a reception or party, it is vital to have the right ambience to

some music in the background. Having the right mix of light classical, jazz and popular 
music played by a live musician as your guests arrive not only creates the right sonic

about it. Everyone loves music and has something to say about it, and having a live 
musician gives them a focal point and something to talk about.
