3 Tips for Organizing a Small Album Release Party
Every upcoming musician dreams of releasing an album and singing in front of thousands of people. It might take years and lots of effort before collaborating with a big music production company. However, you still need to build a following by releasing a large number of quality songs, before getting pro.
The best way of growing that following is by starting in your environment, with your friends. You want to get the people near you to listen to your music. A great way of doing that is by organizing a small album release party for the people close to you. For that reason, we prepared a list with a few tips that will help you organize such an event.
Focus on The Music
Location doesn’t matter at all when you’re organizing a smaller album release party. As long as the people are well-aware that you’re an upcoming artist, they will never judge you for the location choice. But, they will analyze your music and your skills.
The most important element of the whole gathering is music. Make sure that album songs are polished and that the whole thing is ready for release. If the album is not ready yet, don’t hesitate to postpone the release, people will understand you.
You can make your music an intrinsic part of the whole experience. While the gathering is taking place, you can play some of your other songs in the background. This will introduce some of the newcomers to your singing style, getting them ready for the album release.
If you want to make the event a bit more special, don’t hesitate to put on a live show. This is the best way of releasing your new album into the world. Don’t worry if you’re making mistakes, the crowd is still small, and a great way of gathering feedback. However, even if having quality music is great, there are a couple of things that are incremental for organizing an album release party that everybody enjoys.
When organizing such an event, your goal should be to build up some excitement before the release. Get the crowd in a good mood, make them forget that they are attending an album release. You want to keep them entertained until the actual release.
People will often entertain each other by engaging in interesting talks, especially if the group is smaller. However, having a “gaming room,” also called a TV and a console can help. A PC can be better since it has more gaming alternative.
You should focus a bit on the games themselves too. Casino games are a great option. They are entertaining but at the same time, they will still allow your guests to pay attention to the environment. The free slots represent a good option for some quick gaming. If you want something even more engaging, you can always organize a small poker night before the album release, to get the blood flowing.
Don’t Starve Your Guests
No matter how great your music or entertainment is, food is still highly important to the whole experience. People always enjoy breaking bread. You want them to stay for as much as possible, so, you surely don’t want to get them starved.
A solid meal is a good option to get everybody full but, it seems a bit too old fashioned. If you’re buying food, why not focus on something that everybody enjoys. Pizza, fast food and snacks should be your go-to options when choosing the food. Nobody will turn them down. But, you can always cook the food yourself, to personalize a bit the whole experience.
An album release is an important part of any musician’s career. Even if you might not collaborate with a big production company, you can always organize a small album release party for your friends to celebrate your progress. But, you want everything to turn flawless. By following the three tips we mentioned above you will surely be able to host an album release that everybody will enjoy.
