Retirement is a milestone that warrants a grand celebration with co-workers, family, and friends. Throwing a retirement party for yourself, a family member or a friend needs thorough planning. Like any other occasion, it will greatly benefit from the energy brought about by live music.
Here are some key ideas when planning a retirement party:
Pick a Theme
Find a theme that resonates well with the retiree, for example, if the retiree is passionate about golf then a golf-themed party or a Hawaii Luau theme if the retiree is moving to Hawaii. Centering around a theme will make the celebration a very personal one plus you can customize the music to fit the theme! Our versatile live musicians can play a wide range of music genres, so you can create a playlist that works with the party’s theme.
Gather Co-workers, Friends, and Family
It is important to invite people who are involved in the retiree’s life such as their co-workers, friends, and of course, their family. The occasion is better celebrated with the amazing community involved in a person’s life. Furthermore, incorporating live music at a celebration elevates the mood, brings people together, and fosters interaction.
Create an Awesome Retirement Playlist
There are plenty of “retirement” songs out there, with “Another One Bites the Dust” and “Thanks for the Memories” as one of the more famous examples. Need playlist suggestions? Reach out to us and we can help you plan your music.
Honor the Retiree
A retirement party is not complete without a speech, or speeches rather. Tap people who would like to say a few words to honor and tell wonderful stories about their experiences with the retiree. Finally, give the person of honor a chance to share their thoughts and thank the people who played a big part in their lives.

Of course, take this opportunity to create lasting memories with the retiree, family, and friends. Make it even more memorable with live music from the Ocdamia Music Group.
