Music bands for weddings

Music bands for weddings are becoming more popular with the brides and grooms of today, as many of them realise how much more special a live performance is than a DJ.

There some things you need to know well before your big day, to make sure you have the best band for your wedding reception.

What you need to know about music bands for weddings

Probably the most important thing is how do they sound? You want professional musicians and singers who will give their all to provide an exceptional show of the best quality music delivered with enthusiasm, performers who always leave your guests, and yourselves, very happy with the entertainment at your wedding.

How they look is important as well.  How they present themselves will reflect on you and your wedding, and sloppiness in their appearance, generally points towards sloppiness in everything else as well. Music bands for weddings who take care of the finer details, usually take care that every part of their act is fine tuned also.

Much of the work music bands for weddings are hired for, comes to them by word of mouth.  There is nothing better than recommendations from people you know and many good bands play at different family events, within the same family, as they happen.  Testimonials are a good thing to look at as well, most bands will have them on their websites.  If they don’t have any ask why no one is prepared to say anything good about them.

What’s next with music bands for weddings?

So you have found a band that sounds good, looks good and other people are telling you they put on a good show.  What’s next? Where do you go from here?

Contacting them to see if they are free on the date you want is the next thing to do. Hopefully, you will be able to deal with the band directly and not through an agent.  There is nothing wrong with agents, except they are out to make a living just like everyone else, so they will add costs to the band fees for themselves, costs that have to be paid by you.

It is also easier to negotiate with the band themselves, after all it is them that will be putting on the show. It is also a good way to get to know them a little as well.  Pleasant responses at this early stage of a booking usually continue through till the end of the job.  If the band members you are speaking to are grumpy or moody, then you should be looking for another band.
