Always Pick a Party Theme

An event theme, whether it’s for a corporate conference or a dinner party, should embody the objectives of the gathering, and when it does, it can function as the glue that unifies them.

Start Early

Starting to plan for your event 2-3 months ahead provides you the opportunity to book your desired venue, hire your favorite live band, and of course, find the perfect outfit!

Schedule a Party Coordinator

FAQ about hiring Live Bands in San Jose, CA

Why Book a Live Band for my San Jose, CA-area party?

Bands are available for weddings, receptions, parties, fundraisers, corporate events, holiday parties, school activities and so much more. Music can be geared toward any size of crowd and any age group. Solo musical acts as well as full ensembles play pop, classical, country, rock, contemporary, jazz, Latin, folk, reggae, hip-hop and every other genre. Some bands just play instruments, while others play instruments and sing. Some even provide emcee services. Several factors affect the costs of booking a band.


Musicians with a well-respected name or huge following tend to charge higher rates. If you want Beyonce, you’re going to have to pay for her time.


Some bands charge flat rates for their services, and others charge a per-musician hourly fee to ensure that each artist in the group is compensated for their time. Some gigs require more or less musicians (a solo act, a trio, etc.) than others, and prices vary accordingly.

Additional costs

In addition to the time spent performing at an event, the cost for live music may include practice hours, time spent learning special-request songs, travel time and expenses, and preparation and transport of gear to the event. It’s not realistic to hope for a professional string quartet to perform for $200. That would be only $50 per person for hours and hours of work, in addition to the two hours they play at the party.


Some bands charge a travel fee beyond certain distances, and others roll travel fees into their total costs. The travel fee covers the actual cost of transportation (vehicle, gas, tolls) as well as the time in transit during which they’re not able to do other work. A travel fee may be charged as a flat rate or based on mileage.

If you are ready to get your party planning started, contact a Phillips family member today. Our knowledgeable team will assist you in selecting the perfect live band for your party.
