Live Bands for Fundraisers

Fundraising events are often the bread and butter of income for many charities and non-profit organizations of all types. From local church organizations to large political fundraising events, holding an event to raise funds is an incredibly powerful way to fill the coffers of any organization.

Creating successful and productive fundraising events is an art all in itself, and can require an alignment of stars that ordinary mortals simply cannot move. However, one of the most powerful ways to not only emotionally engage your audience but also socially lubricate them and their checkbooks is to leverage live bands.

Using live bands for fundraisers lets the organizers not only connect emotionally with the audience with songs that identify with any message or values that they are trying to convey, but it can engage them and provoke an equally strong emotional response.

Music Emboldens Our Empathy

Empathy is fundamentally at the core of the human experience, and it is the strongest emotion to invoke in a fundraiser situation. Music can connect people to emotions or cathartic experiences that create a deeper understanding of themselves and others. Empathy is central to this, and the right musical accompaniment can send a precise message to the audience, in a more meaningful way than simple words could ever articulate.

It Creates A Cultural Bond

Music binds people together with little regard for the otherwise often imposing cultural mores. It can help unite people from multiple races, identities, and all different walks of life. This unification is incredibly important in fundraising environments where there is often a feeling of “battling” for the cause the fundraiser is benefitting. This sense of belonging and camaraderie can be very beneficial when it comes to raising funds for research or similar ventures where a conventional financial return would not be expected.

Music Gives Makes Us Feel Good

Scientifically. It makes people feel better than they did before. Hearing music spurs the release of oxytocin into the bloodstream. Oxytocin is one of the body’s “feel-good” hormones, and it is crucial to the human drive for social bonding. When new social bonds are created, we feel the release of the hormone, which drives us to make more numerous and stronger social bonds. Music creates this same response, so when properly leveraged it can make even an awful event much more tolerable and amicable to those in attendance. Live music can also be used to help cover awkwardness or failed speaker presentations, alleviating the potential embarrassment of any number of technical issues that may occur.
