The Earcandy guide to booking a band you haven’t seen live

Here at the Earcandy HQ, we asked a ton of questions regarding booking bands and which band would best suit the occasion that our clients are hosting. So with that in mind we decided to create this brief guide on how to select a band that you haven’t even seen ply live before. That may sound a bit idiotic right? Never hearing a band and then hiring them, we are sure that brings a headache on just thinking about it. However, with the Earcandy team, it’s more than possible to get the right band for the right venue and occasion by following a couple of easy tips. Let’s take a look at some tips for you;

Watch the bands

On the Earcandy site you can find clips from performances featuring all of our talented acts. We have an amazing variety for you to choose from, just have a quick browse through the Earcandy catalogue and you are sure to find something that fits your style and taste. Whether it’s Rock ‘n Roll, or Soul and Motown, Earcandy has the act to take your event to the next level. It’s as simple as watching a video and deciding if the band suits the theme of your event or not.

Once you have vetted your prospective band and decided on them, take a look around for some testimonials from previous clients that they have performed for. The Earcandy website is filled to the rafters with happy client testimonials talking about all of our acts and their satisfaction. Take some time to read through them and find out if the band you like is really suitable for your event. If a band has a lot of great feedback, then you can be sure that they have plenty of experience rocking the stage.


The Earcandy stable of performance artists are all thoroughly vetted by the Earcandy team to make sure that they deliver the best value performances for our clients. So you can rest assured knowing that if you have booked and Earcandy act, you are getting the very best industry experience for your event that is available today.

Special Requests

Our artists perform sets that have been pre-arranged and rehearsed to the highest standards. Although they have a plan, that doesn’t mean it’s set in stone for you. If there’s a special song you want played, perhaps for your first dance as a married couple? Then simply send your song request list though to your friendly Earcandy entertainment advisor and they will make sure it’s added to the bands track list and performed for you at just the right moment.

At the end of the day, when the last song is sung and your guests go home, Earcandy wants you to be able to look back on your event and remember it as you wish, whether it’s a comfortable, quiet affair, or a barn-burning dance-a-thon, the Earcandy team will provide you with a professional, reputable music experience that you can rely on and trust to get your party started!
