Having the perfect music played at your event is vital. The right kind of music sets the tone for the entire event. It determines whether your guests are bored and keeping to themselves or excited and interactive. A good host wishes to bring joy and a reasonable amount of satisfaction to every guest. If you want to create a great impression on your guests and the best way to do that is through swing music.

A live band is nice, but have you considered a live swing band? Just imagine it, swing music coursing through your guests and brightening up the entire place. If you’re still unsure, here are five reasons why you should get a traditional big band for your event – and film it for posterity!

It brings everyone together

Swing dancing encourages a lot of teamwork because you’ll need to get in sync with your partner and a whole group. It is terrific for family events and office parties. The fact that everyone comes together based on music is impressive.

It supports relationships and connections

Your guests are not only around to interact with you but also with one another. Swing music is based on forming bonds, and even science agrees. Dancing and some other human activities help the body release oxytocin. Oxytocin has been found to lead to great relationships when its levels are high. Every event needs that kind of bonding, and hence, every event requires swing music.

It actually boosts mental health

Swing music is creative and requires deep thinking to follow the styles and tempos of different songs. This helps elevate your mood and get you and your guests filled with a rush of feel-good hormones. These quick decisions and fast body movements make your mind sharper. There are even studies that confirm dancers are less prone to Dementia. So you’re giving your guests the best of both worlds.

It always gets your guests moving

Depending on the kind of event you want to have, active and participating guests are a good sight to see. If it is an office event, swing dancing brings everyone out of their sedentary lifestyle. It gets everyone moving and also exercising. Besides, big bands originally started to accompany dancing, and a good twirl can be something your guests need.
