Have you ever gone to an outdoor party where people were serving all sorts of picnic food? Have you checked out their grilling equipment? Have you checked out their cars and other automotive vehicles? However, something seems off. It’s not as memorable as you would like. I mean, sure, the food is awesome. Everything is heated properly, but something is off.
Well, you can pretty much trace it to one of two things. It could very well be that the person who hosted that outdoor event did not bring a portable gazebo. Instead, people had to shelter from the sun in their cars or put up some awkward tents or hide behind trees. You get the point. It’s more of like an ordeal instead of a picnic.
This is especially true if you live in a part of the country that gets more than its fair share of the sun. If it gets hot outside and people are sweating, you can bet that at the back of their heads, people really just want to get out of there. It doesn’t matter how good the food is. They just want to leave. Can you really blame them?
On the other end of the equation, there is also the case of lousy. If everything else is in place, and we’re talking about a great portable gazebo well sheltered as well as a good spread of food, the experience can still be lacking. This might sound crazy, this might seem farfetched, but it happens all the time. Why?
Well, people are playing music that their guests don’t only really want to hear. If you are into Led Zeppelin or Greta Van Fleet but most of you guests are into Beethoven, Chopin and Tchaikovsky, there’s going to be a disconnect. They’re not going to tell you straight to your face, but you can bet that they probably won’t be keen on considering the event memorable.
So, if you want to create happy experiences, accent your home outdoor experience with the right music. The great thing about picking the right music is that it’s actually quite easy. By picking retro music, especially the ones that we feature on this website, you can go a long way in hitting that sweet spot. It really is a sweet spot because everybody could pretty much agree that there was a lot of great music from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980s. By focusing on that musical period, you can’t go wrong.
Keep this in mind if you’re holding an outdoor event. It’s not enough to have a shelter over people’s heads. It’s not enough to serve amazing food. You have to round out the experience. You have to go all the way. It doesn’t really take much. Considering how cheap products can be over the Internet, equipment or gear costs shouldn’t be your top priority. Instead, you should focus on setting the right ambiance with just the right selection of music. This isn’t obvious nor is it easy.Posted by admin Posted on 05 Mar
