Why You Should Choose A Jukebox by Derek J

Posted by admin | Posted in Articles | Posted on 07-06-2010-05-2008


You are planning a function and on your check-list is the item: Entertainment. Choosing the right entertainment for your event is crucial to the success thereof. If your event is boring and not entertaining to your guests then you run the risk of losing most of the audience right after desert is served.

People are social animals and tend to follow others, in other words if some guests start to excuse themselves from your event then more people will follow and soon you will have one of those sad parties where everyone is just looking for an excuse to leave.

Having sketched that ultimate disastrous party I am here to offer you a solution. Choose a jukebox for your next function and be sure that your party will be a success and that you will eventually have to shove the crowd out the door.

Most jukeboxes offer in excess of 10,000 songs. Some over 20,000. This means that you will cater for everyone’s taste in music and entertainment. The best part is that your guests will choose their songs and that means that they will be happy with the entertainment and feel themselves part of the party.

A modern jukebox is easy to use and choosing the right track is a breeze. Most modern jukeboxes are touch-screen operated, so its easier than ever to find what you’re looking for. You don’t need to be a tech-wizard, or computer boff to operate it.

If you have a crowd that is a bit shy and no-one wants to be the first to select a song then the jukebox will play randomly until a choice is made. Just like a virtual DJ. So no awkward silences while the party takes shape.

The jukebox comes with a quality sound system that can cater for up to 100 guests. The best part is that even if you are planning a bigger event then the sound system can easily be upgraded to cater for larger crowds.

A jukebox is not dependant on time or day of the week. A DJ or band will always have the limit of availability. A jukebox on the other hand is available seven days a week and if the party goes on beyond the scheduled time, the jukebox will still play and not claim to have to go home like a DJ or band.

Most of the jukebox providers offer easy upgrades, which come at an extra cost. Just ensure that you get professional advice from the jukebox vendor company. Explain to them what you need and they will be able to advise you on the best system for your event.
