Useful Music & Live Entertainment Terms and Definitions

Most people enjoy live entertainment and music concerts. This is why so many men and women hire live bands to play at their weddings, and attend local clubs with musical performers. Regardless of whether you need to hire a rock band for a major party or book a dance team for special kids event, it is helpful to know this business before hiring anyone. You can learn more about music and live entertainment by reviewing the key terms and definitions below.

  • House Tech – This is a professional that specializes in musical performances and getting them booked and organized properly. The house technician has the venue, and understands the specifics about sound, the building’s power, acoustics, proper lighting, and how to get the instruments set up on stage.
  • Crossfader – This is a control found on a DJ mixer. It slides left to right in order to allow the DJ to change back and forth between two channels. The crossfader is connected to a CD player, record player, or MP3 device. This control essentially allows for a smooth transition between songs or tracks.
  • Power Chord – A chord that consists of one powerful note. It is often used in rock songs or by heavy metal singers. Hardcore punk bands also use power chords, and often with some vocal distortion.
  • Stompbox – Often used by musicians and live entertainment bands, this is an electronic, portable effect unit. It typically has a foot-switch that turns it on and off, and it is used to alter the sounds of musical instruments, such as guitars.
  • Event Venue – This is the location where a band or live entertainment group performs. It is often a concert hall, local dance club, wedding reception, or party.

    Music and live entertainment are not only used for concerts at public venues, but also at private parties and weddings. There are many different types of acoustic guitarists, singers, cover bands, and other types of artists that you can book for your event. Most areas have booking agents that connect individuals and corporate clients with the local talents that fit their tastes. Not all booking agencies can provide the same types of private and public concerts. Many of them focus on artists that all play the same style of music. You can, therefore, find agencies that devote themselves to jazz, rock, soul, or other popular musical styles. When you organize a party, wedding, or similar event, you want to be sure that you find an agency that has the guitarists, singers, and musicians that play the types of music that your audience will appreciate. Some organizers only have connections to local bands that they meet at bars and clubs. Others, however, can plan to have regional and national acts put on a show your event. Those with regional and national acts can usually give their clients access to a larger variety of acts that include tribute groups, live cover bands, and original songwriters. You can find more information about the music and live entertainment options that operate in your area by using a search engine. Use keywords that include the name of your city and the type of music that you would like to hire. You can also visit community message boards where individuals talk about their favorite acoustic performers and live bands.
