Choosing The Right Band For Weddings

By Stuart Clarke

Finding a band for weddings is very easy. All you need to do is go on the internet and use a search engine like yahoo or google to get thousands of search results.

Now that you have seen all those mind boggling results, how are you going to choose a wedding band? First thing to do is decide what kind of music you like whether it be jazz, soul, rock or pop it does not matter.

Next thing to decide is how you want your music. From a certain era, a certain band or just a general mixture? So let's say you decide on a soul band for your wedding. You would need to search for a soul band.

Keep in mind that some bands may not necessarily advertise themselves as a wedding band, since bands tend to play at different locations such as for company functions, parties of all sorts, special event as well as many others.

Do not exclude having bands even if they do not advertise themselves as a wedding band. If they have experience playing for wedding then that is a plus.

The secret of finding a good band is not as hard as you think. Any good band is probably on the internet either with a website or social networking page. They also will probably have videos or mp3s of their songs for you to browse through.

Next thing to look out for is a list of past venues they have played at so you can ring these venues to get an unbiased view of the band. Lastly if a band's website sounds and looks professional and comes with good reviews then you are on to a sure winner.

Keep in mind there are a few things you need to do before hiring a wedding band. Before hiring a wedding band, agreeing on the costs and choosing the songs you want to hear, you need to get more information about your event location. For instance, make sure that they do have a live band license and that there is ample parking space to accommodate the band and all their heavy equipment. You need to ensure these and other things before paying anything for the event location or the wedding band.

You also need to make sure there is plenty of available space on stage, as well as having access to all the power outlets they need. Also check to make sure that they have a changing room and find out if the location of your event uses a power limiter that can cut off the power when a band gets too loud. If they do, make sure you tell the band so they know about the situation as well.
