Axe throwing is a ton of fun it can be a great first date or group activity to do with your friends on a Friday night. There is one thing that can ruin a great time its terrible music.
Music is important to set the tone of a business because it can create an atmosphere that customers want to visit and employees want to work in and that customers want to come back to. If the music is too loud or jarring, it can be disruptive and make it difficult for people to hear axe throwing instructions or have a conversation. If the music is too soft or boring, it can be unengaging and make people feel like they are in a bland environment, and then all you hear is axes hitting wood. Perfect music can create a positive vibe and make customers and employees feel happy and relaxed. It can also encourage people to stay longer and spend more money.
The best music for an axe throwing venue or party will be upbeat and energetic with upbeat and positive songs. They can be from any genre, but I think these make the best music for axe throwing:
Boat Rock / Dad Rock
Boat Rock is a genre of music that originated in the 1970s in the United States. It is a mix of rock, blues, and funk. Dad Rock is a term used to describe a genre of music that is popular with middle-aged men. Technically these aren’t the same music genre, but they have a lot of overlap, so I’m putting them together.
The benefit of playing this style of music is it tends to have a wide appeal no one is going to hate that you have boat rock or dad rock on in the background. Another great thing about these genres is that they have a lot of songs with positive messages that can get people pumped up and in a good mood before they start throwing axes.
