Louis Armstrong, a famous American trumpeter and vocalist posited that “Music is life itself”. This adage simply highlights music’s powerful influence – it has the ability to showcase and represent reality through an artistic form. Consequently, it is cardinal to find a live band that would best suit your event, skilfully bringing exciting and dynamic live music to your next celebration.

Be it jazz, rock, pop, classical, or a specific cultural genre, ensuring the band’s style aligns with the event theme is crucial. Picking a perfect live band can be overwhelming, yet fret not! Here are some guidelines on how to pick the most befitting live band for your special event:

  • Reputable and experienced musicians with stellar portfolios and more than 1 year of experience in the musical industry
  • Encompass language diversity by engaging artists who perform in multiple languages, English, Mandarin, Malay, Tamil and more
  • A wide, versatile repertoire of music and ensemble selection to suit different audience demographics or event themes
  • Choose to specialise and customise your group (DIY your envisioned musical group)
  • Logistically flexible with negotiable quote pricings

Past Experience and Reputation

Imagine attending an event and the live band is a total disaster; the singer is hitting all the wrong notes like it is a sport, the instruments are twanging at incorrect intervals, and band members are at each other’s heads.

This cacophonous, worst-case scenario can be avoided by entrusting your event into the hands of seasoned and expert musicians from Merry Media. It is a no-brainer that a professional, reputable band with a stellar track record of successful performances will likely deliver a better experience, such as our talents that have many years of experience and good reviews. They are notably esteemed, possessing strong credentials and a diverse portfolio. Most of our bands such as The Trello Trio and The Lost Box, have previously performed at restaurants, cafes, pubs and events.

Encompass Language Diversity

Singapore is prized as a multiracial society, comprising many diverse cultures. Thus, it is paramount that the live band you choose for your event is able to speak and sing in different languages to connect to a wider network of audience. Merry Media offers many different singers that can sing in either English, Mandarin, Behasa Malayu/Indonesia, and dialects such as Hokkien and Cantonese and even foreign languages such as Korean, Japanese, French and Portuguese! Being able to accommodate an expansive list of languages ensures that most, if not all guests are able to deeply resonate and connect to the music being played and feel included.

A Wide, Versatile Repertoire of Music and Groups

How could you have an unforgettable night without a live band that can showcase their impressive versatility across genres, like pop, rock and jazz, to get everyone up on their feet and dancing?

Unlike other entertainment companies that only offer a narrow range of talents and live bands, Merry Bees offers a spectrum of musical talent, ranging from versatile virtuosos (one man bands) to duos for intimate occasions to larger bands to bring the house down. We have a wide catalogue of talents – 53 in total, inclusive of 9 live bands. With our expertise and extensive network, we will connect you to the ideal live band for your event theme and vibe. The wide array of music genres include ballad, blues, classical, rock, disney, broadway, soul, hip-hop and R&B.

One of our talents include ShiLi & Adi, also known as Dynamic Duo, consisting of ShiLi who sings, paired with Adi’s split bass and piano sounds and kick drum stomps. This highly reviewed & stellar duo can mellow down an R&B duet with their rich vocals or pump their performance up to a high energy dance set. Our other talent, Merry Bands, consist of 2 lead singers who are highly engaging and interactive, performing duets and popular songs in any party setting.

Specialised and Customisable To Suit Your Liking

A key aspect of making an event unique would be the personal and intimate touch added to it. There is nothing better than having your own say in event planning, such that you can choose exactly what instruments should be used and how many musicians you want. The various combinations Merry Media offers include Singing Duo, Multi Duo, Merry Trio, Merry Trio+, Bee-Quartet, Bee-Quartet+, Quintet and Party Band. The difference between Singing Duo and Multi Duo for example, would be that the former would comprise 2 lead vocals in a stripped down setting, accompanied with either a keyboard or a guitar while the latter would comprise 2 lead vocals, accompanied by both keyboard AND guitar.

Merry Media offers various options to fit every budget – with rates starting from S$499 for a 1 piece duo band on regular days, with additional charges applicable for larger bands, peak dates/holidays, and customised songs.

Fundamentally, finding the perfect live band for your event is possible, as long as one reviews their past experience and reputation, their ability to encompass a wide range of language and have a wide repertoire of musical selections to choose from. Additionally, one can consider their ability to tailor their music and make it customisable for your event, as well as meet your budget altogether.
