If you’ve decided to get a live band for your wedding, you will eventually realize that there are many bands out there willing to perform at your wedding reception. Before you get overwhelmed by the number of choices you have, here are some tips that can help you find the perfect band for your special day:
Consider The Band’s Genre
Are you into classic rock or hip-hop? Do you want swing or R&B music to get your guests grooving on your big day? Consider the type of music you enjoy listening to or would want to be played on your wedding day when hiring a live band. Shorten the list of your potential choices for a performer by considering the genre of the songs a particular band typically plays.
Build A Playlist
It will be a good idea to have a playlist, or at least a set of songs that you want to be played during your wedding celebration. Present this list of songs to the bands you interview to find out if they know and can play these songs. You should also give the bands a list of songs you do not want to play.
Check The Reviews
You want a reliable band that can make your wedding truly memorable so check out reviews left by the band’s previous clients to determine their satisfaction level. Feedback left by clients should give you an idea if the band has a history of arriving on time or if they can really give you and your guests quality entertainment. Reading reviews can also tell you if there are any issues with a particular band in the past, which can help you avoid dealing with unprofessional performers.
Trust Your Gut Feeling
Choose the band that makes you move in your chair during the interview, the one you are excited to see perform at your reception. Your intuition can be helpful in finding the right performer for your special day.
