The easiest way to add cheer to your holiday party is to include live music. Live music can bring a festive mood as well as a classy atmosphere to your celebration. Live holiday music is much more affordable than you may think, and certainly much more memorable than prerecorded music. During the holidays, we do have a minimum fee, but we have plenty of music to play for parties up to 4 hours long!
Private Christmas Holiday Parties in Your Home
We are often hired to play more personal, intimate Christmas holiday parties in private homes. Whether the hosts are looking to set a more festive or more elegant mood, our flute and guitar music is the perfect addition. Depending upon the number of guests, home layout, time of day and preference of our clients, we are open to either playing outdoors or indoors. Also, depending up the size of the space and the number of guests, we can play either with or without amplification.
Private Christmas Holiday Parties at an Event Venue or Restaurant
Clients who want to take their private party out of the home to an event venue have also hired us to play Christmas holiday music. In those cases, we just need to make sure that the event venue allows live music. Some restaurants, for example, allow customers to bring their own live musicians depending upon their space restrictions. The good part of hiring our flute and guitar duo for your Christmas holiday party is that our instruments are not terribly loud, so we can adjust the volume to suit the needs of our clients without disrupting other guests at the same venue.
Company Christmas Holiday Parties
Many companies hold office Christmas holiday parties to celebrate the season and reward employees for their hard work throughout the year. Our flute and guitar duo has been hired to play both in-office parties as well as off-site parties. For those opting for an in-office party, live music is that much more important because it helps transform the work space into something special, transforming the holiday party into an event significantly more memorable than a typical day at work. For office parties, we are hired to play during the cocktail hour, dinner or reception.
Styles of Christmas Holiday Music
If you’re interested in hiring SoSco Flute & Guitar Duo to play for your Christmas holiday party, you can choose from a variety of styles of music in our repertoire, or we can play a mix of styles. We play a wide range of holiday music including traditional and folk Christmas songs, Golden Age and Jazzy Christmas songs, Christmas songs from movies and secular holiday music.
Traditional and Folk Christmas Songs
These are the Christmas songs that can be found in church hymnals. Many of these songs were composed between the 1500s and the1800s or perhaps even earlier. These types of traditional Christmas songs that we play include “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing” “Silent Night”, and “God Rest Ye, Merry Gentlemen”.
Golden Age and Jazzy Christmas Songs
These are easy listening, harmonic songs sung by the famous singers of the 1930s-1960s including Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Andy Williams, and many more legends. Songs we play in this style include “White Christmas,” “A Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire),” “Silver Bells,” and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.”
Christmas Songs in Movies/ Secular Holiday Songs
Many Christmas songs we think came from the movies were not originally composed for the movies, but were made famous by being placed in the movie, like “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”. These songs often refer to winter Santa Claus and other commercial aspect of Christmas. Kids and adults alike enjoy the nostalgia of hearing these songs during the holiday season.
Whatever your holiday favorites are, chances are, we play them. Contact us today to inquire about availability for your holiday party!
