In talking with those planning a special event sometimes their favorite instruments would influence the type of music performed.
Sometimes it is the other way around where their favorite song would have elements that would lend to a certain type of instrumentation.
The location, theme and logistics of the event could also influence music selection and choice of an ensemble.
At a wedding or party the host is creating an atmosphere. This is very creative.

Violin or Saxophone? A True Story.
I recall a daughter and her family planning music for their parents wedding anniversary celebration; live music was part of the surprise. They said that their parents liked Piano music and also liked Big Band music but that they also liked the Violin and Classical Music. Since they budgeted for “a duo” I suggested Sax and Piano or Violin and Piano. As it turns out it was an intimate location with a relatively low ceiling and I felt that Sax might be too loud for that room. Read about what ensemble they chose and a surprising turn of events made that choice the right choice. See: Talk About Music You Like
Communication and more Communication.
So as a DJ and Professional Musician when possible I like to speak with the client and the celebrants; I’ll even interview guests if necessary. From this conversation I know what instruments and what to play for that audience.
Talking about music is a lot of fun, one great song leads to another :-)
Please use the Elegant Music website to learn about the services offered. But more importantly I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you about your event and about your ideas for music.
Sincerely, Eric Zimmermann
