TIPS ON CHOOSING LIVE BAND FOR YOUR WEDDING

It’s no secret that music hugely influences the overall vibe of your wedding — pick the right band and your guests will be on the dance floor all night long, but with the wrong choice, and you can bet your party will die down instantly.

Live music creates moments that are remembered and cherished forever. Music is a powerful way for bringing out emotions and feelings that can make any wedding ceremony or reception a magical and memorable event. Music adds energy and excitement that cannot be matched with pre-recorded songs. If you want your wedding day to be as special as you’ve always dreamed it would be, live wedding music should seriously be considered.

Understand that your wedding day is the biggest day of your life and the entertainment for the evening will play a big part in this.

{1} Decide on the ideal atmosphere for your wedding.

From having a classy, relaxed vibe to an upbeat, party mood, your live wedding band plays a big role in shaping the atmosphere for your event. It is important to decide what is the energy you want your wedding to have so that you can make the best possible choice for your live band.
Jazz – Elegant, classy, and pleasant on the ears. Get your guests to socialize without having to shout across the table. Suggest for the band to play a few jazz classics to get everyone humming to the familiar tunes!

Acoustic Pop/Top 40’s – Groovy and upbeat, these catchy tunes will get everyone bouncing to the beat. Limit your band size to a trio for a more relaxed and casual vibe, or opt for a bigger band size for after-parties to get your guests dancing!
Classical – For a refined and graceful atmosphere, consider having a string trio or a quartet. A typical string quartet consists of a cello, a viola, and two violins, and this is a great combination for cocktail sessions or solemnisation. Having a strings section is a timeless style and adds a touch of class to your occasion.

{2} Communicate your expectations.

Other than friends and family of your generation, you may also need to consider the tastes of the older generation – your parents and grandparents, or even children, who may be present at the wedding celebrations. At many times, this may pressure you to include a bit of everything to please everyone at your party.
However, you can’t expect a pop band to be proficient in jazz, and vice versa. If you would like more variety in the band’s repertoire, communicate your ideas and expectations clearly to your wedding music company so that they can suggest the best choices for your wedding.

{3} Don’t compromise on quality.

There are a lot of choices out there for live wedding bands, and many of them come for cheap. You may think you’re getting a good deal but vet your bands thoroughly to make sure they’re up to standard and don’t dive into the booking purely for cost-saving purposes. A poorly-chosen band can ruin the mood of the wedding and turn the joyous occasion into a critic session.
Ask the band (or company) for video recordings of live performances that they’ve done before. This will give you a good idea of the type of songs they do as well as the quality of their performances.
