You know you want a live band, but which one do you choose?! Your Entertainment Representative will walk you through all of your options, but here are the questions you should be prepared to answer:
- What is the venue and date of your event?
- How old are you and your fiance?
- What is the age range of the guests?
- How many guests are you anticipating?
- Is there a price range you have in mind for the entertainment?
- What type of music do you like/not like, and what do you think your guests would like?
- Think about the entertainment at the weddings that you’ve enjoyed attending – What stood out about them?
Based on your answers and availability, your options will be narrowed down to a handful of bands… now it’s time to watch them perform! We’ve highlighted a few details about each band below with photos and video, and they each perform at least twice a month at our Sound Stage Showcases. It’s important to remember that, while they each have their own unique vibes and specialties, each band is able to play any style and genre of music. They are also able to learn new songs, such as your first dance or parent dance.
