Book a Wedding Band for memorable wedding entertainment - check out the following advice from Entertainers Worldwide What exactly will a Wedding Band do at your event?
Wedding bands are a great form of entertainment because of the energy and atmosphere live music can create. They provide a fantastic focus for your family and friends and are excellent icebreakers for the start of the celebration when the dance-floor is empty!
Professional party & function bands are well trained in how to formulate a set-list of great wedding songs that will build the energy up, and most are interactive too, requesting the whole crowd to clap their hands and sing along! The wedding singer will put on a great performance that will entertain you all!
Book a Wedding Band for memorable Day
What about booking something a little different to an organ or some backing music for when the wedding ceremony kicks off? How about booking a live band to play a romantic and special song as the bride in walking down the aisle? It would be a fantastically sweet moment for the bride and groom if a live band was playing their favourite hit as soon as they were pronounced man and wife. (We recommend a funky version of ‘Going to the Chapel!’)
Wedding Drinks Reception
As the newlyweds are greeting their family and friends for the wedding drinks reception, what better way to kick of the celebrations than to hire a wedding band?! They can play whilst the guests are tucking into their food and light refreshments. They will bring a great atmosphere that will soundtrack the day as the wedding photographer is snapping away!
To get everybody into that relaxed state of celebration, you could consider hiring wedding group for the entertainment at the wedding breakfast! Everybody loves a live band and by using our discreet personal messaging service, you can discuss what songs will be played at the wedding breakfast. On request, a band will usually forward their setlist on to you before the big occasion, so any changes can be altered to suit your tastes. Great for musical entertainment as the wedding cake is being cut!
Wedding Evening Reception
Hired wedding bands are absolute pros when it comes to appealing to all age ranges too. A contemporary wedding group will have songs in their setlist from the 1950’s all the way up to the present day from the biggest bands and singers in history! Whether you like Elvis, Sinatra, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, David Bowie, Madonna, Michael Jackson, Prince, Bon Jovi, Coldplay, Beyonce or Bruno Mars, most of the biggest hits in chart history will be considered. You can expect a few decade defining moments thrown in for your guilty pleasure (Bon Jovi's 'Living on a Prayer' - anyone?!) The cost of hiring a wedding band is as wide-ranging as the setlist’s themselves, so relax, get your dancing shoes on and get ready to jive to some golden oldies, and twerk to some modern day wedding bangers!
Because of the varied set list a Wedding Band can provide, they can also be used as a function band and play for private parties such as anniversaries, birthday bashes and more! These professional wedding bands know a thing or two about showmanship so from the very first song, to the very last tune of the night, your crowd will be entertained and dazzled!
How much do Live Bands cost to hire?
Our simple to use entertainment directory allows you to firstly search for the best Wedding Bands who are local (or travel to your area) and then via the contact form you may contact them directly to enquire for a no obligation quote to perform at your event. Some acts will also add a rough price guide to their profile for your convenience.
What are the usual set formats and performance length for Wedding Bands?
A Wedding Band can tailor their performance times to suit you and your event, however, on average a professional Wedding Band will perform for two 45 minutes sets.
How much space will a Band need at your event?
Traditionally, a Wedding Band will consist of a full live band that includes: Drums, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards, Sax, Singer and even backing singers. On average, this will be an area of around 6 metres wide by 4 metres deep. Some bands can fit into smaller spaces, but it is always worth using our personal messaging service to enquire first.
What equipment and set up requirements do Bands need?
A Wedding Band will provide most of their own equipment. This may include a lighting rig and a PA, although you may want to enquire if an artist needs a PA to amplify their sound, in which case we would advise to use our easy to use messaging service to find out. It goes without saying the a Wedding Band will need a backstage area to change and prepare so this is pretty important! You may want to contact the venue prior to check if they have a backstage area or at least a spare room where the band can change etc.
