YOU and SONG SELECTION are KING!
So much in the music scene keeps changing. Different styles of music get invented and become popular, and different trends in our culture affect the music that is produced, recorded, and then performed. The music is always changing, and the best Bands change with it, yet remain who they are and keep their autonomy. They keep up with the pulse of the newest songs and the most popular songs as well as staying true to who they are. Thats a very profound difference from the pack.
There are things that have NOT changed over the years. They are the same as when I started playing, and they are the same today. It’s always been important that bands perform with, soul, charisma, edge, ENERGY, and projecting how much of a good time they are having while performing. Have it or you don’t. It’s also always been important that the quality of the performances be genuine (no cheese), come from the soul and remaining true- Otherwise like the overwhelming majority– you look, sound, and are cookie cutter.
The three most important elements needed for an amazing party are:
1. You and Your Company
2. Song Selection
3. Who is performing that Song selection
Playing the right songs at the right time during your party is huge- with great flow and dynamic change- its downright an art form. It always was, and we believe it always will be. Song selection is so important. Playing the right songs may be even equal how good the band sounds. Of course, as a bandleader I expect all my performers to always sound great. And so does every member of the Funktion Band. But there is no question that a great band, THROUGH EXPERIENCE, will play the right songs at the right time. That will keep your dance floor packed. (And yes, with Funktion, you’ll have amazing energy, musicianship and showmanship too!)
