Finding professional wedding bands you can stake yоur reputation on is very difficult. Thе worst eventuality is a young band recommended by a friend with little experience of playing professional gigs running through a set of original songs that strike a chord with no one. The wedding band can ultimately make or break your after party. It can either be memorable and enhance the enjoyment, or it can grate and generally put people off.
So how do you find trustworthy wedding bands that don’t just go with the flow, but get people out of their seats dancing? It is in fact not about your reputation at all, but the band’s. A good website is a great start. From there you should be able to establish who they typically play for, what they look like, listen to a song or two or even get a quote. But most importantly of all, you should be able to see who the band has played for in the past. If they have an ongoing client list, it is the biggest affirmation of their professional quality and really can cement them as your band of choice.
You also need to be certain that the set list will cater to a range of tastes. Function bands make their money from performing familiar songs with an added twist, something that brings the song alive. Thе last thing you want is for the bride and groom’s dance to be ruined by an inadequate crooner. The best function bands will enhance the ebb and flow of the evening, adapting to the atmosphere and creating it themselves. If the romantic part of the evening comes too early it could fall flat. And this is only something that experience can give the band, an intuition of what the crowd needs to get thе party rolling.
