What makes a great wedding band?
‘A great wedding band should be fun and memorable and they should understand how to engage with a party crowd. They need to be able to pull off an immaculate 1st dance but also be able to ‘rock out’. But most importantly a great wedding band understands the needs of their clients because your wedding is the greatest day of your life, and as a band we perform at the climax of that day and it’s really important you end on a high’.
What songs do you play?
‘We are always really keen that our clients are really comfortable with what we are playing so I will always meet with our wedding clients in advance of the big day. We sit down and I share the set list and if there are any songs or bands they really don’t want then we can get rid of those and switch them out for other tracks’.
‘One thing that is really quite important is that one of the reasons you are hiring a band is that you are looking for someone who has experience in knowing which songs fill the dance floor, and that’s something we have got. We have been doing this for such a long time that we know certain songs just work especially at weddings. Certain songs will always fill the dance floor and we are pretty ruthless with our set list, we have a kind of zero tolerance for songs that do not keep the dance floor full, so if something isn’t working, even if we enjoy playing it, we get rid of it and ship something else in’.
