Written on 16/Nov/2011
If you are planning a barmitvah, a batmitvah or a Jewish wedding, then you are most likely on the lookout for the perfect Simcha band to enhance everyone's experience. Music is an important part of the festivity, and a good Jewish Simcha band can turn an already good party into a fabulous party!
There are many Jewish Simcha bands in the Uk, so how do you find the right one for your festivities? Firstly, you may know of someone who has a Simcha band that they can recommend to you. You may also choose to have your event planned by a professional event planning company, in which case they will assist you in choosing a Simcha band for you. There are many event planning companies that specialise in Jewish event planning, and it can be worth the money to choose one of these. Planning a jewish party, while rewarding, can be a lot of work, so why not leave it to the professionals?
If on the other hand, you prefer to plan the party yourself – and why not, as the lead-up to the event can be a big part of the fun – then there are many musicians available for you to choose from. The best bet is to find a jewish directory which specialises in Jewish events and culture and will compare the simcha bands and jewish musicians. These jewish directories will help you in finding high quality, recommended Simcha bands for your special event.
Many Jewish Simcha bands have websites where you can learn more about them and their services, as well as listen to samples of their music. Make a few initial calls, and see which Jewish Simcha band is best suited to your requirements. A good Simcha band will liven up your party and make sure that all guests, whether old or young, are certain to have a great time and remember the party in years to come!
Simcha bands can range from single sex men only bands playing klezmer or traditional jewish simcha music which are suitable for even the ultra orthodox Jews to internation mixed sex bands playing pop music. Some charedim (ultra orthodox jews) have religious issues (halachic issues) listening or watching women sing in front of men so a single sex simcha band is recommended for these jewish communities.
Remember to negotiate on price. Sometimes you can reduce an 8 piece band down to 7 and save money, or use a price comparison website to get quotes from multiple simcha bands and play them off against each other.
