Hiring a Live Band for Your Wedding

Posted by MDT Music on December 11th, 2019

It is the biggest day of your lives and you have planned it for over a year. Everything needs to be perfect and organized to the nth degree; nothing can be left to chance. You have ordered the flowers, the photographer, the church and the dress. But what do people remember the most well probably the reception and the fun they have had in helping celebrate your big day. The reception gives you the chance to relax a bit, have some fun and you can reflect on the excitement and joy of the day. The music you choose can give that extra little something that makes the whole night memorable and make it different from 'just another wedding'. 

So it is all important to make the effort to ensure you go the extra mile for your night time guests to top off your day with the right music for your reception. Below is a series of tips to ensure you pick the right live band to make your party go with a swing; 

• Get a list of possible live bands by searching online for live band providers; ask newly married couples, wedding planners. wedding live band malaysia

• Check with your reception venue on any restrictions they have on space or noise.

• Sit down and decide what sort of atmosphere you want at your wedding; do you want country music, soft music in the background or a full on rocking do. It is a question of your own taste and a matter of pleasing your guests.

• You must decide what space is available; take in consideration what equipment a live band would need and how many band members could you fit in without impacting on dance space.

• Once you have a short list of live bands ask for audiotapes or even better videos of their performances especially ones produced at previous wedding where they have performed. wedding band kl

• Have a look at how they interact with the audience, have they got the potential to act as the master of ceremonies at the wedding can they run the event or will they need constant prompting and managing.

• Once you have chosen a particular live band get a contract signed which should include the hours they play, the number of songs, timings, breaks, clothing, and the cancellation and refunds policy. Check they have cancellation insurance and include this requirement in the contract.

• Have a look at the live bands playlist and ensure that if you require particular songs singing that they don't currently have, give them enough time to learn the songs and rehearse them.
