Sure, jukeboxes are great because they usually have everything you want to listen to and if you spend enough money, you can set a playlist for the whole bar all night. But there are certain ways that a jukebox just can’t compare with a real, live band performing on a stage right before your eyes (or buckets of booze, in this case). Yes, we might be a little biased since we’re a live music venue and all, but really we probably know best. Between super talented musicians that play a live, request-driven show all night and a large selection of specialty cocktails, we think we know a thing or two about what makes live music bars awesome.
1. The band can interact with you.
Forget lamely bobbing your head along with the music. That’s boring! When you’re at a live show, the band talks to you, yells at you, and sings along with yo. YOU are part of the show. YOU are part of the experience. Take that jukebox.
2. You can interact with the band.
You feed off of each other’s energy. The more energized the band is the more you dance and the more you dance the more energized the band is. It’s a high-energy, dance-filled loop that always wins.
3. It fills the awkward silence.
This is something music over the stereo cannot do because it’s till awkward if you and another person are just sitting and staring at each other listening to what’s playing above your heads. If you’re in an awkward conversation, you can easily distract yourself by watching the band perform.
4. Everyone sings along
5. Takes the pressure off
If you want to take out a group, but aren’t confident in your entertaining skills, a live music venue is the way to go for you. When the band is on stage at a live music bar, you can just sit back and enjoy your drinks. They’ll take care of keeping your group entertained! Easiest corporate party you’ve ever planed? We think so.
