Hiring a Band for a Wedding

Posted on May 9, 2017 at 12:52 pm

Bands are often very popular for wedding entertainment. At the reception, lots of couples will choose to have a live band playing rather than having a DJ for the whole evening. If you want to hire a band for your big day, here are some tips:

  • Remember that a good band won’t be cheap. Musicians put in a lot of time practising to make the music they play sound good. They also have to invest in instruments and music, so don’t underestimate their costs. Some bands will ask for travel expenses as well.
  • Ask for advice. Lots of people hire wedding bands and they will be able to tell you about the service they received and the quality of the music.
  • Listen to a band’s music on the internet. They will usually have their own website or YouTube channel where you can hear some of their music and see if you like it.
