Things to consider when booking – Wedding Band South Wales

There are lots of different things to consider when booking a band for your wedding party.  There is a diverse range of ages at a wedding and as much as you may love a certain genre of music, it is always a good idea to consider what kind of music your guests will like too.  Having a band who perform a wide range of hits across the board helps ensure guests of all ages will enjoy the night.  An excellent band can pull in different songs to include the older generation and even get your granny rocking, while keeping everyone’s interest up and the energy high.

Watching the band before I book

Most of the top wedding and function bands are booked out for a big portion of the year for private gigs.  This can mean that you may not get a chance to see them perform live.  However, most bands have excellent show reels and live footage designed deliberately to give you a good idea of what you will be getting. By the time you have checked testimonials and done your own research online, you will have plenty of confidence in your own choice.

Contacting the band

A great band leader will help to put you at ease immediately about your evenings entertainment.  They will answer any questions you may have and be on call to liase with you or your wedding planner about times, music and anything to do with your wedding party.  It is their job to take care of your whole evening and to ensure everything runs smoothly from start to finish. So all you need to do is kick back and enjoy your wedding party, with a loaded dance floor and a rocking band.

Do we need to book a DJ too?

Another thing to consider is music between band sets.  Often couples are confused and not sure if they need a disco if they have booked a band.  As digital technology has become more up to date and easier to use, most bands provide their own disco music in between their own sets.  soundAWAKE provide a disco service all night free of charge which includes lighting, from the moment evening guests arrive and until the very end of the night.  We have found this can help save on space if you are at a smaller venue and helps with cost, especially when you are working to a budget.

soundAWAKE have also worked with many DJ’s and are happy to assist if you would like to book one separately as an extra feature.

Booking early

It is suggested that couples book their evening entertainment as early as possible.  Many wedding bands that are in demand get booked ahead a year or two in advance, so it is good to get in quick!
