Bands for weddings

Asides from finding out whether they can play your favourite song, or indeed YOUR song there are other things that you ought to ask the manager of the band, or the band themselves, before you sign on the dotted line and book them for your big day. Here at Sensation Band we understand what you should be looking for and the things you ought to ask when interviewing bands for weddings, which is why we have put together this information list for you to help out.

What to consider when interviewing bands for weddings

#1 – Are they available?

Many people think that the first thing you ought to find out about a potential band is whether you like them or not, and if they play the right style of music.  This is of course hugely important, but in our opinion it’s not the first thing you ought to ask.

Finding out if the band you are talking to is actually available to play at your wedding is the first thing you need to know.  There is no point in taking the time to find out that they are absolutely perfect for what you want, imagining them playing at your wedding only to find out that they are already booked. It’s a huge waste of time and can potentially lead to massive disappointment.

Get your diary straight first, and then find out what you need to know.

#2 – How much do they charge?

Again this is a pretty important answer to get right off the cuff.  There is no point falling in love with a band if there is no way that your budget will stretch to hiring them.  It is also worth taking some time to find out whether or not they have any room for movement when it comes to their pricing.

Some bands are not often booked for mid-week gigs, so if your wedding happens to fall on a Wednesday you may well be able to get a suitable discount.

#3 – What do you get for your money?

You need to find out what is included in the price for your band. Will they come up with their own playlist, will they take requests?  Do they have their own sound system that they will bring to the event, or are they reliant on the venue’s system.  When will they set up and how long will they play for?  Can they provide a warm-up whilst coffee is being served or are they there to get the party started?
