Wedding music bands will play almost any song that you request on your big day. Do not worry if the songs you request are something the band normally do not play as most good bands relish the chance to learn new songs in rehearsal.
Wedding music bands usually play a wide variety of music since your wedding guests span all ages and have a variety of tastes. They should know hit songs from the 60 through today in styles like rock, pop, jazz, or soul. You might even want to hire a tribute band that will play your favorite songs from your best loved band.
You may have decided what type of music you are after but how do you pick the band that is right for you? That is a good question. The best place to start looking for answers would be the internet and to use a search engine like google.
Good wedding music bands will have their own page on the internet or on a site like Facebook where you can download mp3s of their work or watch videos of them performing. Don’t let price tempt you to go with a cheap band. You will probably get a better band if you pay a little more.
You may have to go through an agent for some professional bands and this could be an indication of a high quality band. Another thing you want to do is get references or reviews. You might find them on the internet or maybe your friends have used a particular band. You can also ask for band referrals from your wedding planner or from the venue that hosts your wedding.
Expect to pay a reasonable amount for a good band. What they quote you may sound like a lot of money but you probably already spent money trying to make the day special why skimp on the entertainment? This too is something you want to remember for the rest of your life for the right reasons.
There is more to arranging your wedding music than just booking the band. First of all, you need to make sure the venue you have selected is a good fit for a live band and that they are licensed for live music.
Once you have those details figured out, you should find a good band and book them well in advance. Good wedding music bands are always booked solid and it is hard to get one at the last minute.
