Top 5 Rules when choosing your Wedding Band

Top 5 Rules when choosing your Wedding Band

1. Set list

Checking out a band's set list is one of the best ways to get a feeling of its music energy. You and your partner want to feel a connection to their repertoire, but also feel that it’s versatile enough to suit all of your wedding guests. There’s so many different playlists out there, we want to make sure you pick the wedding band and setlist that is as personal as possible to you as couple.

2. Video footage

This is a big one! The first impression you get from a band means an awful lot. We encourage everyone to go with their gut when it comes to this. If you instantly get good vibes from a bands video, then you’re on to a winner. If you’re a little unsure, then we suggest doing a little more digging.

Look at and request as much footage as you can get your hands on. In particular, if you manage to see any video footage with wedding/party guests in it, have a close look at them. Do they look like they’re enjoying the band? What kind of atmosphere has the band created for them? Is everyone up dancing, or is the band more of a sophisticated background act? Watching the guests reaction to a band can tell you so much.

3. Check the band's reviews / feedback to help you with your decision.

Reviews mean everything when it comes to booking a wedding band. And we should know - (we have over 110 x 5* star Google reviews!). The great thing about reading feedback like this about bands, is that it’s non biased. You’re hearing the real story, straight from a previous couple and their own personal experience about a band or act.

4. Make sure you are confident in the band being able to cater for all your wedding guests

Maybe you and your partner are massive jazz fans, and you want to steer towards a band that suits that style of music - and rightfully so, it is your day after all. It’s important to remember though, that not everyone will have the same taste in music! It’s important that everyone can enjoy the music, so it’s well worth booking a band that can be versatile, read a crowd, and make sure everyone is having great time on the dance floor. 

5. Talk to your booker about any special requests you have - no matter how big or small!

We all know what a massive part the music plays in bringing your special day together, so if you have any special requests, let us know! Maybe you want a certain version of a song, or maybe you want to have your first dance played live by your band. Or maybe you have a few songs that you absolutely don’t want played! Whatever it is - talk to us! We’re here to help and to make sure you get as much out of your special day as you can.
