Creating Vibe...... Music Secrets To Create The Perfect Atmosphere

"Rat Pack + Jazz Are Great
...but I want something different for my cocktail music!"

if the sentiment above describes you, then you were destined to see this blog post today. :)  While traditional styles typically played during cocktail hour work great, and make sense for the right atmosphere, they definitely are not a "one size fits all" genre when it comes to fitting the atmosphere of many of today's venues.

If Your Venue Were A Song, What Would It Sound Like?

Okay, the question is weird, but think about it!  The venue, decor, and music all brand your event a particular way.  And that WAY should be cohesive! 

Confused?...Let's Check Out A Couple Of Examples Below.

Check out The Gallery Event Space in Power & Light.  What are some words that come to mind?  Modern, trendy, minimalistic? DEFINITELY!.....which is why a cocktail hour in this space should resemble the same feel.

This playlist was created for the trendy rooms of Kansas City.  You'll hear some housey / jazz sounds that are a perfect fit for events needing the cocktail hour to be uniquely different :)  It's definitely not for every person or venue, but if used correctly, your guests will take notice and appreciate the atmosphere you have created.

Ultra Lounge Cocktail Playlist

An Elite Sounds favorite.... Foundation Event Space in the historic KC West Bottoms.  What words can be used to describe the character of this space?  Rustic, a hint of industrial, eclectic with a true hipsteresque (is this even a word?) vibe?  

Yet another playlist that defies the norm to provide a truly unique feel for a venue with this much character.  While it's not the only style that makes sense, it's definitely one that has not been played out, or a part of every other event that your guests have attended recently.

Making A Noon Wedding Come Alive

 

Bailey and Blake wanted someone that could make their midday reception dance floor come alive. They were ecstatic to see their family and friends enjoying themselves after they chose Elite Sounds.

Lighting for Any Occasion

At Elite Sounds, we pride ourselves on our state of the art lighting that can suit a number of different occasions.

  • Uplighting can add a beautiful ambiance to a venue for a wedding, project company colors at a corporate party or fade between colors for an energetic prom.
  • Pin Spots can highlight your table centerpieces, a presentation, dessert table, head table or any stationary item that you don't want in the dark once the dance floor opens.
  • Intelligent Lighting (or moving head lights) move around the room to create an exciting dance experience. They can also be used before the dance floor opens to spotlight introductions, a speaker or cake table. Or projected with light moving gobos on the wall for a modern cocktail hour.
  • Our Orbs have the ability to stay on one static color, fade between colors or snap to different colors. They are waterproof and therefore make for very fashionable additions to pool parties. They also could be incorporated throughout a modern event as decorations, centerpieces or hung from the ceiling by a string.
  • Custom Monograms put a unique signature on your event. You could do initials for behind the head table of a wedding, a company logo for a corporate retreat or a mascot for homecoming. The customization makes the options endless.

Check out some of the ways we have used our lighting below and let us know if you would like to recreate something or do something new for your event! Contact us today.
