Albuquerque Wedding Bands

So, you and your fiancé have decided that you would like to have a live band at your wedding reception. The question is: have you ever hired a wedding band in your life? Chances are you have not and we must point out that hiring one for your wedding means that you must consider issues that you have probably never had to think about before.

What are the First Things to Consider When Hiring a Wedding Band?

Keep in mind that there are a lot of bands out there in the Albuquerque area, but not all of these bands would be suitable for your wedding. Performing for a wedding is a special skill that requires more than just being able to play music. A wedding band understands that there is a certain cadence to a wedding, that there are a series of events that happen and they are there to enhance those events or activities. They can act in the emcee role if needed and they know how to interact with your guests and keep the party rolling along. Take these words of advice very seriously and think long and hard about what makes a great wedding band as opposed to just a band. Here are some tips that will hopefully help you in what to look for.

Some Important Aspects to not Overlook

We start with the simple question, what makes a really good wedding band? First of all they must be very versatile. A high quality wedding band should be able to play a wide range of different genres of music. This should keep everyone on your guest list happy as everyone has different tastes in music. When you start your search, you will probably be wondering where you should even start to generate a list of potential bands to consider. A really good place to start are your other wedding vendors. Your photographer or your venue or your florist have more than likely been around a number of other vendors including live bands. They might be able to give you the names and contact information of some bands they have heard at weddings they have worked. Another potential source are your friends and family. Maybe someone you know has been to a wedding recently and heard a really great band. And, of course, there is always the internet. Most reputable wedding bands should have a presence on the web. And usually you will be able to see video and hear audio of any potential band on their website. From all of these sources, try and compile a list of at least 5 potential bands.

You will want to meet with any potential band and interview them. Ask them how much experience they have. How many weddings do they perform at per year? Have them show you their package prices? Pay attention to how many hours are included with certain packages. Do they want to be fed? What about breaks? Will they play music during their breaks? Do they allow people to make requests? Will they act as emcee of your events? Make sure you ask for references. This can be a very important resource for you because it allows you to get feedback from someone who has had actual experience with the group.

Contact each band and ask them if they are available for the date of your wedding. For the ones that are available for your date, find out where they will be playing in the Albuquerque area and do whatever you have to in order to see them play live. If they tell you that they are not playing any gigs for the next couple of months, that might be a major red flag.

Once you have all of your questions answered, do a side by side comparison. When you feel confident about a particular band, you will have to put down a deposit to reserve their services. Also, make sure there is a contract written up that will be signed by both parties. And let us be the first to wish you well and in enjoying your very own live entertainment.
