band for wedding

There’s no doubt about it. The right music entertainment can make a wedding celebration - just as the wrong choice can break it. It's the heart and soul of a reception and can send your guests home dancing into the car park​!

Finding the right band for wedding celebrations is a matter of getting friends' opinions, surfing the internet for your locality, using fine-tuned ears and making the right move, sometimes very quickly to get what you want. It’s finding the type of entertainment that best suits your personal tastes and needs, budget, space constraints, demographics of the guests and appreciating the killer moves on the dance floor by some of them. In other words keep an open mind when choosing a band for wedding reception frolics.

Things to consider with band for wedding hire

Here are some things to consider:

  • The Vibe - certainly the type of music you choose can set the tone of your wedding and create a theme for the afternoon or evening nuptial jollities. Think about which musical genre best reflects your personalities, brings back great memories, inspires the whole ambience and generally put guests in hyper-happy mood. Is it disco Funk or subdued string quartet? Carefree Swing or kick your shoes off and go all out for Kid Creole and the Coconuts? It’s the way the music is delivered, whether by a live band for wedding fun or a DJ, which fuels the atmosphere. The type of music you choose may also determine song choices and eras too.
  • The Variety - as a bride to be, are you a little bit country while your man’s a little bit rock and roll? Regardless of whether you choose a band or DJ, be sure they play slow and fast songs, and old and new tunes to encourage different sets of guests to hit the dance floor.
  • The Budget - of course DJs generally cost less and prices vary depending on things like equipment needed and whether it's a weekday or at a weekend. Go for a 12-member band, for example, and obviously it’s going to be more expensive than a DJ - there are more people who need paying. Prices vary with band for wedding celebrations according to the number of musicians involved, the length of time they play, and the time of year let alone day of the week.
  • The Space - don't get your heart set on something like an eight-piece salsa band before you check whether the reception venue has any restrictions on the number of musicians and pieces of equipment that can be accommodated. Also, are there any electrical power supply or noise limitations? Does the place have to be cleared by a certain time because its near to domestic residences?
