Where do you start in your search for a great wedding band? the Kaye Twins have a vast experience in the wedding industry and can advise you how to start.
What is most important is that you ensure the band you book at the showcase or public event is the band you get on the night of you're wedding and we mean the band, not just the singer. Just ask "Will this be the band that I get on the night of my wedding" If the answer is "NO" then ask why?
NOTE: A great band is a collective unit, it's not just a singer. The band is the backbone to ensuring a full dance floor. From the drums and bass to the guitarist and keyboard player, Saxophone and Trumpet player and so on. You book a band on what you see, so this is what you should get. No excuses or reasons why you might not get the band viewed should be accepted.
Word of mouth: In lots of cases word of mouth is sometimes the best way to find out about a great wedding band. If you have no recommendations then a simple Google search for a wedding band provides you with an endless list. There are also websites that will list an array of suppliers, these websites can be very useful as they also host forums where people leave comments about many different topics.
The band is a vital component of any wedding day. You want to make sure you're booking a band that sounds great, is trustworthy and will not let you down. Make use of forums, websites and word of mouth. It is always a good idea to go to see a live performance of any band you think of booking. Most bands will hold monthly showcases. Some bands will allow viewings at weddings while others will not. In most cases you might feel more comfortable viewing the band in a showcase environment.
Putting down a deposit when booking a band can help, as this means that the band is now committed to perform on the wedding date specified and no performance clashes should occur. Every band is different. They will have different policies on deposits, different set lists and performance times and their own stipulations regarding contracts, so it is imperative that you do your research. The Kaye Twins hope that this guide to booking a wedding band is helpful.
