Live music in a café or restaurant creates a huge effect on the success the company; reality. This doesn’t mean to say ANY live music being done at your café is going to result in a successful organization, but music that is acceptable for your establishment and your clients.
So why consider having live music at your café? Why don’t you just have an ipod playing in the corner? When a client walks into a café and a musician is doing, there is an added buzz to the place; it makes the customer feel special; it makes the site feel unique. Have some Small coffee machines around the corner, and some fairy lights and people will swarm your coffee place.
Additionally, it makes the café look more exclusive and in itself means you can control more.
Customers dining in your café make a few decisions when choosing your venue. The quality and variety of food is one; the quality of the ceremony; the venue itself and the ambience of this venue are other factors. Having live music contributes to the air of the café and provided it doesn’t disturb the guests, it might be one of the principal considerations when selecting where to eat.
Just how can live music be utilized within a café? First of all you want to consider the style and subject of your café and the type of customers you bring, and then match the audio so. We know of festivals where they have asked their regulars’ advice on the sort of music they enjoy. The average age of customers might be a hint; and the time of day and day of the week you have the music. A Sunday lunch might draw in households: in which case a musician who plays with many different music including’Disney’ songs would work, or young adults with no kids – where an edgy group or jazz could be ideal; afternoons – to afternoon tea could attract older clients who want to get a classic ambience and encounter, in which instance a classical pianist or harpist will be perfect.
Live audio is a great way of creating new interest in your café; of creating a new picture for your site and an opportunity to test out new menus. Although there is an initial investment in musician’s fees, the income you will generate from increased bookings and publicity will soon cover that cost. Be brave and integrate live music to your customers – and reap the benefits. Good luck!
