How to hire a live wedding band

1: What Is Their Level Of Experience?

To avoid any hitches on the big day, book a professional and experienced live wedding band. It’s worth asking about their music training and performance history to get a glimpse of this.

You’ll also want wedding entertainment that knows what to expect, so find out whether they’ve performed at many weddings beforehand.

We have over 10 years of experience in the wedding industry, performing at hundreds of events across the country, so you’ll certainly be safe in our hands.

2: Do They Have Any Testimonials?

To find out if a live wedding band is professional and will perform up to standard, we recommend asking previous customers about their experiences.

Don’t be afraid to ask for quotes – a reputable wedding band should happily comply by giving you some testimonials from previous weddings.

3: What Songs Will They Play?

Most wedding bands will have a repertoire – closely look at these songs and see whether they fit your tastes. We have a catalogue of over 200 songs across many different genres and eras, so hopefully, there’ll be something that you like.

It’s also necessary to ask whether their wedding music is flexible. Some bands like ourselves will take requests and learn your first dance song, whereas others will stick to their setlist. This could be a dealbreaker if there’s a special song that you’re dying to hear.
