5 Questions to Ask to Find the Perfect Wedding Band

The best way to begin the process of finding the perfect band that will create an unforgettable party is to ask them basic questions that will help you get to know them. The prospective wedding band should be able to answer these questions easily. If they can’t, run!

What is Your Style?

The style of the band will determine if they are a good fit for the kind of party that you are planning. Are your guests looking to get down with today’s Top 40s or would they dance the night away to big band hits of yesteryear? Some bands can accommodate a variety of styles while others provide a limited set list. Know what you’re looking for and see if they fit the bill.

Can We Listen to a Performance?

At the very least, a live wedding band should have a recording of their performances. However, seeing them perform live would be optimal, but this could be difficult if the wedding they are performing at is a private affair. At the very least, listen to a recording of the band and if possible watch them perform live.

What is Your Set List?

You should also ask about the band’s set list. Some bands have a limited set list and so they can only accommodate certain requests. Ask the band about those songs that are important to you and if they can take requests from the crowd during the event. You don’t have to settle for a band with a limited set list — find one that can accommodate your needs!

Need a band for your wedding?

Will You Act as Master of Ceremonies?

For big parties like wedding receptions, you need a master of ceremonies. Why? They will direct the attention of guests and help to move the party along. The bandleader may act as the MC, but this isn’t always the case with every band.

How Big Is Your Set-Up?

When asking this question, be sure to find out not only how many pieces are in the band, but also the other equipment they will be bringing. Due to the size of the venue or even your guest list size, some bands may be too large, while others may not fill up the venue space adequately. Also, many live wedding bands can offer smaller set pieces as well as their full band. Learn more about the options available.
