Live Atlanta Entertainment featuring Pan Flute

The Pan Flute – Look at Atlanta Entertainment A History

Live Atlanta entertainment and The Pan Flute is our focus today.  We seldom hear Pan Flute performed live here ,but you frequently hear it in commercial music and movie scores.  Our Live Atlanta Entertainment featuring the Pan Flute may be making a comeback.  The instrument has a vast history throughout the ages.

The Pan flute, also known as Panpipes, is a group of wind instruments of closed tubes varying in length.  The tubes make different tones of the musical scale grouped together.  The sizes vary from 13 to 15 tubes each.

The principle material used to make the Pan Flute is bamboo.  The instrument is named after the Greek God of Shepherds and nature, Pan.  The Greeks, Romans and many ancient Etruscans played the instrument at their festivals, wedding banquets and funeral processions.

The the tubes are different lengths to make the 12-tone chromatic scale.  They are tuned by using pebbles or corn kernels placed in the bottom of the closed tubes.  To make the tones sound, one blows air through holes at the top of each tube.  The tubes will sound more reedy or more flute-like depending the width.  The Peruvian Pan Flute makers curve them using beeswax and bind them together so that they stay intact.

Many live Atlanta Live Entertainment Saxophone players have double on flute. The most common is the closed-hole version.  Blue Sky Atlanta Music represents many bands with jazz flutists among them.  There are very few Pan Flute players in Atlanta.  As a result players are rare here.  I expect to see more Pan Flute players as more people emigrate from Peru and Romania.

Striking a Balance Finding an Affordable Wedding DJ

A Feel for Things: Strike a Balance in Finding an Affordable Wedding DJ

Every DJ is different, but one thing to consider when you’re hiring an affordable Wedding DJ is how you feel about that DJ navigating the evening.  Is there trust?  If you’re doing it right, there should be.  So, let’s explore adding a little sparkle to your wedding reception.

Atlanta Affordable Wedding DJ's, Best DJ's

You and your partner will know you’ve found the right disc jockey when you feel confident that he or she can handle just about anything.  (It’s kind of like marriage, right?) Because, honestly, the bride and the groom aren’t supposed to be worried about the details.  Now that the party is planned, it’s up to them to let go and enjoy the special day.

When choosing a DJ or the musical act for your wedding reception, an interview can be a great way to get to know the DJ or the live performers and to see if the match is right.  Of course, though you and your partner are the ones hiring the DJ or the live performers, keep in mind the DJ or the musicians may have some questions for you, too.

He (or she) may want to know how many people will be coming in from out of town, the ranges of ages of people in attendance, and the types of music you want most requested.  In addition to what songs should and should not be played, these details matter.

Even if you don’t know specifics, being open and honest with each other will get this working relationship professional and off on the right footing while keeping the evening unfolding just as you originally planned.  Let us help you plan!  We do this all the time.

It is certainly worth the investment to use the skills of a knowledgeable, proven DJ performer and consider using our company to guide you every step of the way and be there for you from the booking date to to play date.
