I recently bought the Cantina Performers Personnel Bundle.
After i placed all the personnel / decorations i noticed that even though the musicians where playing and the entertainment droid (with big speakers) was rolling around there was no music
I turned background music and turned up the music volume of the game, but stil no music
Is this a glitch or is there just no sound?
I really hope it's a glitch because musicians playing there instuments without sound just looks a little stupid.

Does someone have have a solution?

They don't come with sound. You can place a jukebox in the vicinity and let it play, that's probably the only way to get some cantina music.

Personally, I think it ought to get reported as a bug. There's a droid which looks identical to it, a toy that actually plays music. It's hard to believe they released a silent droid with speakers.

Also, you might notice that one of the female dancers has a spotlight. She's useful for lighting up a dance area in a dark room.

Cantina performers on the planets also don't actually play music, either there is a general area music around the cantina (same volume throughout the area), or there is an actual speaker that emits ambience music (gets louder when you come close). There already is a speaker decoration in the list, it's just not obtainable ingame. So yes, add music to the droid, but also give us a speaker that does the same, so we can use the other musicians without the droid.

On the other hand, the next thing we will ask for is the ability to select which music to play, because we hate that particular track the devs decided to use. Give us an inch...
Let us turn off that gaudy flashing icon over every vendor's head.
Let us sort our companion list and hide or kick out the unwanted ones!

You've reminded me... aren't there some kind of Ambient Music Devices available as decorations? Would one of those work to provide the missing music for the band?

Very good point. So the droid shouldn't play the music, just some ambient device that plays songs on an endless loop -- something that blends in, not a jukebox.

The speaker decoration is already in the game. It's only obtainable in the ultimate packs, so it's rare and expensive. I got a bunch of them and they don't play any music either. Regarding the ambient machines, I got party chatter and casino and they are barely audible.

Yeah, people have been complaining about them for years. Too quiet, over too large an area, and the sound is too muddy/distorted. We keep hoping for an update.

We could also use a fix on all the bugged areas of strongholds where you can't place a jukebox. For example, numerous hooks on Nar Shaadaa where the music fades in and out at regular intervals (about 5 seconds).

What we need is an object like a speaker (not a jukebox) that plays the music on a continuous loop -- not the background cinematic music, the instrumental Tatooine cantina band songs and songs with lyrics.
