Live Music Ideas For A Welcome Party.
If your team or clients are finally making the leap back into working in-person, it doesn’t hurt to boost morale with live music! Consider these live bands and musicians for your next welcome-back party.
Fred Lee IV and Late Night Special
Style: Pop, rock and classic soul.
Late Night Special is a pop, rock and classic soul band that dishes out good vibes in spades. Their sound lends itself to the likes of Tom Petty, John Mayer, Jimi Hendrix, Bill Withers, Marvin Gaye, the Avett Brothers and more, and they offer smooth and original takes of songs by these legendary names too. Late Night Special most commonly performs in configurations ranging from an acoustic trio up to an electric six-piece band. Frontman Fred Lee IV also performs solo acoustic guitar with vocals and as a duo to accommodate an even smaller footprint. Fred and Late Night Special are both fantastic options for a welcome party because their sound maintains an easygoing atmosphere without overpowering the room.
Style: Soft rock, blues and classic rock.
Party trio Air Tropicali are newcomers to Key Signature’s roster. They offer soft rock, blues and classic rock favorites as well as modern pop songs in a compact and dynamic configuration. The band features GreazyKeyz, organist for the Charlotte Checkers Hockey Team, who is an asset to the band for his keen ability to engage a crowd. Air Tropicali hits the nail on the head for any event that needs fun music, but can’t accommodate the footprint or sound requirements of a large party band.
Style: Yacht rock, soft rock.
If soft rock hits from the ’70s and ’80s sounds like a good time, you came to the right place! Premier yacht rock quintet Thurston Howell, named for the Gilligan’s Island character, takes listeners on a brief tour with the sounds of Michael McDonald, Hall & Oates, Steely Dan and more, with fun stage outfits to fit the theme. If you’re looking for a band that has a classic sound with modern performance energy and the look to boot, take a ride with Thurston Howell!
