Starting Hospitality - Business Music Not That Easy

Business Music Is Not That Easy

If I asked you to close your eyes and I played Dean Martin’s classic tune “That’s Amore”, what restaurant would you assume you’re eating at? Or if you heard an acoustic version of Adele’s “Rolling in the Deep”, what type of hotel would you be laying your head down in? Music has a clear way of invoking moods and branding memories. There is plenty of data that shows that the music a hotel or restaurant play can lure guests.

Most businesses are found playing music through their Pandora, Spotify, or Apple Music account. Some even go to YouTube and use playlists to run their music. While this music might be sounding great in your business, it is illegal. Music played on those services are provided through an individual or family license. To help out we’ve listed some business music providers and their costs.
