Let’s Hear The Music

Apr 01, 2021

In between the sumptuous meal and emotional speeches at the wedding banquet, entertainment will set your guests in a celebratory mood. Piped-in music or tired renditions of guests on stage in a karaoke session are passé. Nowadays, many couples as well as their guests enjoy and appreciate live music and there is nothing like a live band that will make the event more lively.

Here are some things to consider when hiring entertainment for your banquet :

  • Select the right style of music as wedding bands generally have a wide repertoire of music that can be adapted to suit any wedding reception.
  • The cost varies depending on the number of musicians, number of hours they are to entertain, the type of bands and how popular they are.
  • Set-up time as some wedding entertainers may take longer to set up. It all depends on the sound systems as well as the music equipment and instruments that they have.
  • Check to see if your venue has ample space for a band set up and if live music is permitted.
  • Never forego quality due to the cost.
