Top Tips When Planning Your Corporate Event

Every Corporate or private events planner knows to pay attention to the major things involved in creating a memorable occasion, but sometimes it is the little details that make all the difference in putting on a truly successful event, for example; making the right choice when booking your entertainment. A vital element to your evenings success, is sometimes not considered, until the very last minute.

Of course, there are pitfalls in delaying booking a first-class professional band for your event. It’s well known fact the best party bands and tribute acts available across Ireland & UK, will be snapped up first, due to high demand. This can lead to disappointment, when clients haven’t managed to secure their first choice in entertainment.

Musicon Entertainment have many years’ experience providing high quality entertainment for Corporate businesses and events across Ireland with satisfied customers returning year after year to book one of the many themed bands we produce in house. If you are not sure where to start or which band to book there are many options you might like to consider as one band does will not fit all event requirements.

Deciding Your Theme

Here are a few of our Top Tips you might want to consider:

  • Choose a popular theme style to dress or help advertise your event
  • Is there a band available with music to match your theme!
  • Do you want a dancing band, DJ or speciality act
  • Do you want a standard cover band or a tribute show
  • Have you got the budget to cover your chosen entertainment
  • Always check out your entertainment live on stage or using live video footage
  • Always read verified reviews or get recommendations from previous clients
  • How many entertainment slots do you have
  • Have you left enough time to book the best act for your event
  • Have you got enough space for the act to perform
  • Do you have a AV & sound production company looking after your event

The above might seem pretty obvious but as we said, it’s the little details which make all the difference. For example; if you want an ABBA theme your event; don’t just book any Abba tribute band. Its easy to claim the be… the best, Ireland’s finest, UK No.1, Europes premiere… they are just words after all BUT it IS important to check out ANY act before confirming a booking…Why?

There can there can be huge difference in quality, showmanship & musicianship. We always recommend you see a live show or at least a live performance on video and do your research before you decide to book.


Over the years we have observed tribute acts hiding behind the mask of REAL artist images on their advertising. Possibly because they do not look the part or have poor quality marketing. Other times the venues can be guilty of this marketing technique, but we feel it’s important to know what you are buying into before booking … so ask yourself, if their marketing is poor what is their performance like?

If your event is meant to bring employees together and create great memories, then it’s a good idea to make sure the entertainment matches the tone and vibe of your event. How-ever in our experience, ABBA tribute bands are unique to this! And great example of booking a band they will pull a crowd or turn even the hardened Rocker into a fan of the Swedish pop sensations.

The music of ABBA is so popular with audiences across the board, they don’t need to fit into a theme of its own.  An Abba Tribute band is the perfect choice of party band for any event. Due to the popularity of the Mamma Mia! Movies, ABBA is now reaching a much wider audience and guarantees to fill the dance-floor from the very first song.
