It’s not too often you’ll hear guests at a wedding or other private function discussing the flowers, table arrangements or décor. Even the food can be demoted as a prime subject of chat when it comes to the main point of conversation – the musical entertainment on hand, particularly when it’s provided by a live band.
To find bands that fit the criteria for your own event can be a time-consuming process, so it’s always advisable to start your search early and using the Internet is an ideal way of going about it. People are often passionate about having live music at their wedding reception or anniversary and for many, nothing else will do.
Sets to fit requirements
With live music playing such an important part at so many events professional musicians in the function performance business know that they have to tailor their sets to fit exactly with event requirements, providing tailor-made soundtracks for private socials in their own area or UK-wide, depending on resources available.
If you want your special day to be extra special, find bands that will provide the perfect accompaniment to every minute of your wedding. Most guests arrive at least 30 minutes before the ceremony starts so rather than them just sitting around in silence at the venue, you can welcome them with gentle live background music such as a string quartet, pianist or a harpist. This creates a relaxed and romantic atmosphere in which your guests can chat to each other if they wish or just listen to the professional sounding music on offer.
Musicians enjoy weddings
Most musicians enjoy weddings and would far rather perform for more than just a few minutes, so you could arrange for them to play during the ceremony also. An ideal time for this is during the five to ten minutes where the couple sign the register and have photos taken. For a church wedding, some vocal excitement could be added with a gospel choir or professional opera singers to lead the hymns and sing a solo psalm or similar.
While the newly-weds are having photos taken, guests can move on to the venue and a drinks reception. These can be a little time at the start and a Rat Pack singer or jazz band to will certainly kick-start the party atmosphere before the couple arrive and prior to the wedding food being served.
Memorable wedding party
Wedding meals can seem very long for young guests and they and the adults would find it hilarious if you added in novelties like comedy singing waiters, who suddenly burst into song, or roaming magicians who can amaze with clever tabletop tricks. The key to a really memorable wedding party is to choose live entertainment that involves all your guests, regardless of their ages. The most popular wedding entertainment is the wedding function band, the best of whom can play a wide range of pop, soul and contemporary hits to get the party atmosphere going with a swing.
