Live music has clinically been shown to reduce stress, and is the holistic approach in many therapies. The best way to describe it would be a euphoria of the spirit, heart and mind.
We know that live music creates excitement at a wedding, for instance, or a dance social situation, like a club. We also know that live music can create an emotional bond between people, or can even take us back into a memory. This can lead to tears, especially at a life celebration of somebody dear to us, or even a moment in our past where we were strongly reminded of something or someone when associating a particular piece of song with.
The beauty and versatility of live musicians, is that they can adapt really well to the different types of events they have been hired to play or sing for. For instance, If you have a wedding ceremony, and need just some background music during the vows, or a prayer or a candle lighting or sand ceremony, a live musicians can play soft music that is more appropriate. This serves more as background music, so the moment is enhanced through whatever is being played.
If the timing at an event, leads up to a special moment, such as a kiss, having a live musician can really make the beat of that moment so precise, that it is seamless. This almost feels like a customized movie track to that special day. This is something that can not be done with a recorded piece of music in that same situation. The fade outs, the beats, and the rhythmic patterns can not be controlled in the same manner.
