If you’re looking to surprise your special someone this Valentine’s Day, you can always hire a local musician to perform some of their favorite love songs. 

Pro Tip: Most musicians are performing virtually too. You can hire a musician to see a song and watch it from the comfort of your own home. 

Find a Soloist

Tips for booking a soloist or live music:

  • On The Bash, you can search through a list of top-rated, bookable soloists, bands and entertainers in your local area. While browsing, be sure to review vendor profiles and check out their photos and videos.
  • When preparing a request for one of our musicians or DJs, keep in mind that the more details you can provide, the more accurate the price quote you'll receive. If you receive a price quote that seems like it needs clarification, don't hesitate to reach out to the vendor directly to find out more.
  • Make sure you have discussed what supplies the vendor will need for their performance. You'll want to know what they can provide, and what you'll need to have on hand at your event.
  • Communicate your expectations and special requests to any prospective musicians, and make sure to ask about their repertoire — especially if you have a particular song that you would like them to perform.
  • If you're planning an outdoor event, be sure to discuss where the vendor will be situated for the best acoustics and conditions for them to perform.
  • Discuss what kind of atmosphere and mood you are hoping to set for your event. The more they know, the better they'll meet your expectations.
