The Band's work begins long before the first downbeat. Big events are carefully arranged. Kit's job starts in earnest when he meets with the clients and party planners.
The itinerary for the evening will be discussed, and a strategy can be designed to use the music to enhance each segment of the night. A soft and sensitive set can serve as the perfect backdrop for a conversational cocktail hour. Appropriate sounds can be arranged to underscore an elegant seated dinner. Special songs and fanfares may be used to accent the other carefully crafted aspects of your party. Later, when collars and spirits are loosened, the music can be designed to become the focal point for dancing.
Tempos, volume levels, costuming and pacing will be considered so that each of these elements can be employed to contribute to the success of the night.
Kit will discuss the selection of songs and styles of music from his extensive repertoire. Special request tunes may be added for the event.
As the event date approaches and final plans are made, Kit will be available for further consultation. He'll continue to work with you to perfectly orchestrate the role of music in your affair. This kind of attention has put the Kit Reid Band in high demand, and made a reputation for Kit Reid as a top professional in the private party market.
Perhaps the most important, the Band understands that its job is not to overwhelm a party - that the music isn't always the center of interest. There are times when the role of music is to serve as background while people mingle or enjoy a meal.
