How to Choose a Wedding Band?

One of the most important elements to consider when booking a wedding band is professionalism and reliability. When you come to a team of dedicated musicians, you know you can rely on us to be there on your wedding day. With a band that draws from an incredible pool of talent, we can always provide the music on the day. If you are reliant on a single person, you are more at risk of getting let down, leaving your wedding day without a tune.

Good wedding bands do book up quickly, so make sure that you start planning with ample time before your wedding day. You will want a wedding band that listens to you, and to the type of music that you want. If you want advice, then a good wedding band will be able to suggest certain songs, or types of music. When you come to us, you don’t just get to work with talented musicians, but to make the most of all of our musical knowledge.

If you want a certain song, but you can’t remember its name, or who it is by – try us! We might just surprise you! Choose a wedding band who are as excited about your wedding as you are, and will bring their enthusiasm and passion to your music.

Why Choose “Wedding Bangs for Hire” for Your Big Day?

Weddings are wonderful days, but they are long, and they are filled with different moments. Live entertainment does exactly what it says, it entertains. Your guests may not know each other, but a dance floor is the perfect way to encourage your two families to come together and celebrate your union. Live music, during quiet moments in the day, provides a gentle background. If your guests need a little encouragement, a live wedding band, can work with the room and draw people together. A playlist can’t change the dynamic between families, it can’t bring the mood up, or even cool it down. Using live entertainment will help you to ensure that your wedding day plays out to your chosen beat.

Make Your Big Day Special with Live Music

Weddings are joyous celebrations of two people coming together. They are also deeply personal and are very reflective of the individuals involved. All the choices that you make for your big day, are based on your story, your life, and your personalities. Music is very evocative and emotional, and many of the songs that people choose for their big day, fit together to tell a story. Just as your choice of colours, flowers, and food will be distinctive and reflective, so too will your music choice. Live music is so much more special than playing music off playlists. Live music contains a vibrancy and spirit that just isn’t captured by a recording. Live music can bring a whole extra element of emotion and engagement to your big day. Let us colour your big day with all the music that you love, played by professional musicians.

How to Book a Band for York Wedding?

If you are thinking of booking a wedding band for your wedding, don’t delay! Popular dates such as summer weekends do book up some time in advance, so it is never too early to plan for your wedding. Once you have a date booked at your chosen venue, then you need to start booking all the providers for your wedding day. When you get in contact with us to discuss your wedding band, we will start by confirming the dates and our availability. Then we can spend time speaking with you to understand exactly what you want from your wedding band, and we can offer different options that might suit you.

Here at Wedding Bands for Hire, we can provide a huge range of musical options. From a Disc Jockey to a full 14-piece wedding band, and pretty much everything in between.
