When you are planning your London wedding reception or family celebration it’s so important to consider carefully the experience your family and friends will have during the occasion.
With weddings of course, whilst the ceremony and reception are the main focus of guests, there can often be ‘down time’ later on where not much is going on, such as during photographs being taken or a room being turned around for the next part of the social. A great way to fill such gaps is with an entertainer, perhaps a magician, a comedian or impressionist to keep everyone in party mood.
Excellent function bands in London
The wedding reception should be fun for all. If you are considering hiring one of the many excellent function bands in London you should book as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Popular wedding and function bands are often booked up well in advance.
Also, considering most receptions last anywhere between 4 and 7 hours you should be aware that most wedding bands in London will only perform for about 2 of those, with a break mid-way. You need short infilling entertainment like a mobile disco to play background music during the early part of the evening and then keep the party atmosphere swinging into the night after the band have finished their final set.

They are many who specialise in Jewish weddings, barmitzvah parties and other Jewish events and are familiar with all the requirements for such occasions.

When searching for the right band for your particular event just be careful of bands that post videos with a studio demo soundtrack on their website. The absolute best way to hear the quality of a band, apart from actually going to see them that is, is to watch a live video clip of a performance.
Quality of the songs
Look for one that’s been shot by a former guest or the newly-wed’s couple’s official recording on video or DVD. Remember, it’s not the picture quality that you should be focussing on it’s the quality of the songs being performed. As cover versions, they need to be as close to the originals as possible. Look for audience reaction in the playback. Are they enjoying the experience? If they are you’re getting pure honesty about your choice of function bands in London.
