What are the most popular tunes for juke boxes?
In 2022 the UK music charts reach their 70th anniversary – that’s a lot of music, so what are the most popular tunes for juke boxes?
The answer isn’t an easy one. It can depend on your particular clientele, the quality of new music releases, and even on the day of the week.
Because of this, Manco Automatics provide audio and video juke boxes for pubs and other venues that give you plenty of ways to customise and update the music you offer.
One example of this is the Sound Leisure VenueHub Digital Jukebox, known as VHub for short, which offers exclusive access to regularly updated UK Singles Chart music.
Give it an internet connection and it will update on a weekly basis, so whatever the most popular UK singles are at the time, it should have them available for your customers to choose.
Networked jukeboxes can also offer vast libraries of on-demand music, so you can give far more choice than what’s stored directly on the digital juke box hard drive.
Even if you don’t have a suitable internet connection, digital juke boxes have as many as 30,000 songs and albums stored internally – plenty of choice for your customers.
Improve what you offer
As soon as your digital juke box is installed, you can start to improve the music library you offer – which can mean making it smaller, as well as bigger.
Some tracks might not be suitable for your venue. These can be removed from the library or from the menus and search results on the juke box so they can never be selected by customers.
Some songs might only be unsuitable at certain times of day – for instance, you might be happy to offer songs with swearing in them later in the evening when no children are around.
Dynamic profiles can be created that automatically adjust the availability of those songs over the course of the day, so you don’t have to manually switch profiles every evening when your family friendly hours end.
VHub even supports soundjack, an app that means customers can choose songs directly from their smartphone – reducing congestion around your juke box and allowing more songs to be queued overall.
By combining all of these techniques, you can create a music library that is perfectly suited to what your customers want, whether that’s the latest chart music or the old classics dating back 70 years or more.
