Play Their Music
If your loved one had recorded music you might want to play it at the service. You can get copies of it on a CD and use them to play before or during the service. You can use this music with other more traditional songs if you choose. You can also play recordings of your loved one singing. If you don’t want to play the music you can add it to the background of a slideshow with photos. You can choose to use as many songs as you choose.
Invite The Band
If your deceased loved one was in a band, you will want to invite the other members. Not only will this allow them to have closure, but it is likely what your loved one would want. If you are thinking about having music at the funeral home, you might want to ask the band if they would be willing to play some music. You can also ask them to record the music ahead of time if they won’t want to play it live or if you think the music might be too loud for the service or if they band would simply prefer to pay their respects and not play music.
If you aren’t sure if you want to include music from the deceased’s collection or allow their band to play, you can instead display the instruments. You can set the instruments near the casket next to the casket so those who approach it to pay their respect will be able to admire the instruments and get a glimpse of the instrument and have an idea of the things you loved one used to make music and show off their musical skills.
