Whenever you are in charge of planning a party, one of the things that should always be on your itinerary is renting a photo booth. It does not matter how big or small the party will be. A photo booth will help capture some of the best moments of the occasion that can be cherished forever. Among the benefits is that it is a lot cheaper to rent a photo booth compared to hiring a professional photographer. They also offer some kind of privacy while taking the photos, which comes in handy to those who are a bit shy to pose for pictures in public. Some of the top reasons why you should rent a photo booth for your next event are highlighted below.

Acoustic electric guitars are some of the most popular types of guitars. Indeed, the demand for this type of guitars is always high. There are several acoustic guitar types out there. Whatever level of guitar playing you are, you should choose the best acoustic electric guitar for your needs.

Choosing the best acoustic electric guitar for a beginner

If you have just set foot into guitar playing, you need to choose a suitable acoustic-electric guitar that will help you hone your guitar playing skills. To get the best guitar for your unique needs, consider the following factors.

Features and specifications

guitar 2You need a guitar with friendly features that are not challenging to apply. Being a beginner, you need an acoustic-electric guitar that will introduce you to the world of playing the guitar and propel you to the pro playing level easily. With the improvement in the skill level, a good guitar should be able to take you to the next level gradually until you are at the top of the game. It should have, among other features, a key winder, strap, a capo, picks and pick holders.

Some guitars like the Epiphone Hummingbird Pro have a rechargeable battery that can be used in the absence of power. You may need to consider that flexibility in power options as well. Also, the overall design and beauty of the guitar cannot be ignored. Go for a combination of good looks and good sounds.

Ease of use

A good acoustic guitar for a beginner should be easy to play. It should be designed to fit the needs of new guitarists. The truss rod should be easily adjustable, for instance. It should be easy to get the best acoustic sound effects on the chosen guitar. It should also be easy to connect the guitar to a public address system. There should be treble as well as bass controls and overall volume controls.

Additionally, it is always good to choose a guitar that is just a plug-and-play. With some guitars, you have to change the strings and perform initial tunings. This may require the services of a professional guitarist. There are, however, sophisticated acoustic guitars that are great for the beginner level, pro level and any level in between. The Yamaha FG800 is one such guitar. This guitar can help you climb the guitar playing ladder all the way to the top.

However, when buying acoustic guitars for beginners, do not give the durability of the guitar a lot of weight. This is because you expect to move to the next guitar playing level that will require the purchase of a professional guitar.

Choose a simple and cheap guitar with a fairly low durability rating, like the Yasmine S35 Acoustic guitar. You can still go for more durable models like but be prepared to fork out more cash.

How to prepare for a music concert
02/09/2017 Concerts Michael Kenney

Preparing for a concert can be a hard thing to do. There are so many things that one will need to do. Various aspects should be considered and checked to ensure that one is ready for the performance.

Here is how to prepare for a music concert

Artistic aspect

music concertBefore one considers applying for performance in a musical concert, they should have known the kind of music that fits their style. One should then make a point of learning that style of music so that every phrase delivered comes with its conviction. A sure way of ensuring this is catered for is by practicing. One should not get tired of practicing until they will feel they are ready for the performance. However, one should be cautious not to be like the ostrich who danced lame before the main dance. Ensure that you do not harm your voice as you practice hence destroying it on the material day of the concert.

Technical preparations

All the people involved in the presentation of your music should also be prepared. They should be in top command of the musical instruments. The crew should also be in the knowledge of matters about the concert performances. This includes the lighting and sound systems. If your crew does not have experience in such environments, they whole crew can decide to volunteer in other events as backstage professionals so that they get accustomed to this kind of environment.

Mental preparations

Better concert performances are achieved when one is emotionally engaged and mentally cleared. Most people get their clarity during practicing. However, they should go ahead and work on it to ensure that they remain the same during the concert. In case of any difficulties, one can use different scenarios during their practice sessions to ensure that they can stay put during the concert.

Physical preparations

One will need strength before they perform. They will also need to manage their activities before the main event so that they are fresh when they perform. One should find time to rest amidst the vigorous rehearsals. Eating well and getting enough sleep should be the main focus of the day before the concert. For those who intend to stay fresh even during the few days before the main event, they should strike a balance between the practicing, eating and even resting.


eventOne should ensure that they are very organized before and even during that main event. If one does not know the venue, they should organize to come early so that they reach the venue in time. One should also know what to wear and the effect it will have on their audience. They should also have all the instruments they need for the concert and ensure that they are at the venue on time for proper setup and even testing.

The organization is necessary even during the performance to ensure that switching from one song to the other is also orderly and flows with the rhythm. All these should be considered.…
