Silent Disco Was A Huge Hit At NACE!
This year, at the annual NACE Denver – National Association for Catering & Events leadership and networking event, the focus was on “The next big trend in entertainment”. While we can all agree that “trends” come and go and that steadfast entertainment services will always be here (like DJs, Bands, Interactive Performance, etc) and remain staples for special events, sometimes, a new feature catches everyones attention and sticks around for the ages. We firmly believe that SILENT DISCO is “hear” to stay!
WHAT MAKES SILENT DISCO SO SPECIAL AND UNIQUE?
Besides the obvious (wearing headphones & listening to music), the true power to this form of entertainment is in the ability to create several experiences and environments in the same confined space without excessive bleed over of music, talk or socializing. In the photos below, you see how people are socializing, playing games, inside, outside, everywhere and some have headphones, while others don’t. It’s a unified party but everyone is grooving to their own beat!
Imagine being at an event and as you walk in, there are people talking over calm background music at low volume. At the same time, there are people (dozens, hundreds or more!) wearing headphones and dancing around. Some have headphones with “blue lights”. Some have “red lights”. In some cases, some have “green lights”. They’re all dancing or bobbing their heads. You have no idea what they’re doing or listening too.
That is, until you grab a set of headphones! Then you truly become part of the experience!! You see, SILENT DISCO is the ultimate way to give your guests a form of entertainment that allows them to “choose their music style”. That’s right! Imagine a large group of people all dancing together with headphones on. With the ability to “switch channels” (ie; different light color on headphones), they can listen to their preferred music format!
NACE ATTENDEES ROCK OUT TO SILENT DISCO AND PLAY GAMES!
In this example (below photos and for this specific event), we had DJ Brian Howe spinning a variety dance party mix (mostly top 40 with a splash of party favorites). On a separate channel, he had an itunes playlist of decades hits and classic rock favorites. On the main speakers (as background music), he had a mix of downtempo & jazz. If you were “socializing” (not wearing headphones), you were able to chat with others while having pleasant background music to fill the air. If you wanted to dance, you could put the headphones on and instantly be transported into a full dance party. If you didn’t want to hear top 40 music, you could switch the channel to the classics and still have a dance party next to the person who likes the current pop music. Both of you (or a collective group of people) are all enjoying the same experience but maybe different music!
SILENT DISCO CAN MAY BE YOUR ANSWER TO MIXED GROUPS!!
This is only the beginning of all the possibilities SILENT DISCO can offer! Imagine out door events (with noise restrictions). Mixed group events (kids & adults) or events with multiple functions happening in the same room, etc. If you could imagine it, we could make it happen for you!
Big thanks to DJ Brian Howe for throwing down the beats for this showcase feature and for all of the amazing vendors who participated in this great event! Also, BIG SHOUT OUT TO All Digital Studios – Denver colorado for taking these great pics!!
