UNFORGETTABLE LIVE MUSIC – REIMAGINED
The Ron Bedal Orchestra provides world-class entertainment for corporate events, charity galas and upscale weddings. This 12-16 piece band delivers entertaining, high-energy music performed by top-notch professional musicians. Their vast repertoire covers all styles and genres, and the ensemble is infinitely customizable to offer a unique, fresh, and personalized approach to each event.
With over 20 years of experience as a bandleader, Ron brings his unparalleled versatility and attention to detail to craft a custom-tailored event that will ignite the engagement of your guests and create a party to remember.
When I meet with clients, many questions are addressed regarding their “crowd,” what type of “tone” they want to set at the event, and most importantly, what type of music they envision enhancing their evening. We discuss how their space is going to be staged, as well as confer on lighting concepts and decor options. The lighting and decor have an influence on our stage appearance. The music selection has an impact on our instrumentation. All of these elements are discussed and integrated in order to design a successful event.
I share with clients some basic tenets of how to enhance their event using music. One such example is greeting guests with music when they first arrive at the event. Whether it is a string ensemble lining the staircase on the way to the ballroom or a harpist inside the main entrance of a venue, it is a special touch to make your guests feel welcome. This is the beginning of what I call “layering the music” from the start to finish. It helps sustain interest by adding diverse musical elements throughout the evening, lending a sense of anticipation for your guests.
Rather than simply being wallpaper, ceremony music should elevate your wedding, both acoustically and visually. Ron Bedal’s creative guidance will provide a seamless experience that will create the perfect musical overtones. Whether you envision classical elegance, poignant jazz, contemporary sounds, or a combination of moods and styles, we will customize the perfect soundtrack to complement the emotional resonance of your unique wedding.
Live music is the best way to set the mood for your cocktail reception while your guests mingle. A jazz quintet including flügelhorn and percussion sets a fun, engaging atmosphere. Another option is a dynamic, versatile string ensemble that provides both classical and contemporary sounds. Whatever your vision, rest assured that we can bring it to life.
DINNER AND DANCING
As the doors open for dinner, the sounds of the Ron Bedal Orchestra beckoning your guests to enter creates an exceptional dramatic moment which might naturally promote dancing. The excitement and energy sets the tone that will continue throughout the evening. Featured dance sets between courses is also a great way to invigorate a party and maintain an upbeat feel during the meal service. During courses, enjoy dinner sets performed by our talented violinists and versatile horn and rhythm sections.
The Ron Bedal Orchestra features a string section of three violinists who provide a unique, interactive element to the band. From fun and elegant background music for cocktails, to strolling musicians playing jazz standards and show tunes, to high-energy classic rock arrangements for dinner, our string section can do it all. During dance sets with the full band, our violinists add sizzle and personality to the party.
The DJ/Turntablist acts as a modern day percussionist adding loops, live mash-ups, beat matching, and enabling seamless segues during the orchestra’s performance. When an afterparty takes place in the same venue space, we frequently arrange for a few members of the main ensemble to join the DJ, serving as a transitional performance between the main ensemble and the DJ turntablist set.
GALAS AND CORPORATE EVENTS
Make your special event a night to remember. Enhance a formal awards ceremony with a string quintet or a dynamic contemporary rhythm section. Connect with employees and clients by adding an improv sketch that is amusing, interactive, and relevant to your workplace. Afterwards, create a dance party with one of our high-energy ensembles, coupled with our interactive dancers.
Professional dancers add an element of energy to any event. Showcase the dancers on stage with a live orchestra or have them mingle with the dance crowd to promote some entertaining interaction. Ballroom dancers, disco dancers, or costumed ‘50s Rock ‘n Rollers are a few ideas to consider. Custom-choreographed shows are also available.
