I have noticed the change from live music at weddings and events to recorded music. This makes me sad, for a lot of reasons. I think venues and coordinators think it’s easier for them to have canned music, and perhaps it is, but there is a loss.
Guests who have listened to radio, CD, or a pod device on their way to the event, get more of the same when they get there. When there is a live band your guests get something look at in addition to listening. Energy emanates from a live ensemble, and that’s contagious.
Catch the energy, employ musicians, support live music.
