Top Ten Wedding Band Questions

So, you’re shopping for a wedding band this week. Here are the Top Ten suggestions of things to look for and questions to ask;

  1. Is the band a set band with the same musicians all the time?
  2. Does the band have its own name or is it a generic name used by other bands in the company?
  3. Do I get to meet the bandleader and go over everything in a face-to-face meeting, prior to my wedding? Or will it impersonal, done through emails and an online form?
  4. Will the bandleader be my point of contact?
  5. Do I get to choose songs and help plan the band’s playlist for my wedding?
  6. Is the band willing to learn songs that are not on their song list?
  7. Does the band play continuously including lighter music during the dinner courses?
  8. What is the instrumentation of the band? What options do I have to add or subtract musicians and vocalists?
  9. Will I get the musicians and vocalists that I see?
  10. What are my options for ceremony and cocktail music?
