Why Choose a Wedding Band?
Creates an Authentic Experience
It’s hard to deny the magic of live music. Your guests will love knowing that your music is raw and real, and you will, too! There is something quite romantic about live music, especially jazz or classical genres. The songs played at your wedding will never be played in exactly the same way ever again, because every live performance is slightly different. If you resonate with that idea, a wedding band may be just perfect for you!
Perfect for Themed Weddings
If your wedding will be themed to a specific time period, fantasy world, or style concept, a wedding band can make the entire experience feel absolutely immersive. Imagine going back in time and dancing the night away at your own 1920s soiree, or walking into the whimsical world of your dream — the right music can make it happen!
It’s hard to deny the excitement of watching a live band or musician. A wedding band is a two-in-one bundle of music and entertainment. Not only will you and your guests love dancing and listening to great music, but you’ll also enjoy the experience of watching the band, musician, or vocalist. Depending on the variety of instruments, there may be a lot going on to create the melodies and harmonies that keep your guests engaged.
Less Music Variety
One downside of choosing a wedding band is that they can only play so many types of tunes. Some bands may be able to switch around their instruments and vocalists to create new sounds, but you should be ready to commit to the main style the band or musician offers.
Bands Need Breaks
An important thing to keep in mind is that band music relies on humans — you can’t just plug in a band and have them play endlessly. Your wedding band will need breaks, so be sure to work with them to coordinate when they can take a breather. You can always fill in the silence with a playlist of your own!
