How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Band in Manchester 

Choosing a live wedding band is easy. Finding the perfect one for your day is a little trickier! 

When looking for Manchester wedding bands, you’ll likely come across so many different musical options that your head will be spinning. So, how do you choose between them?

Here are some the top things you’ll definitely want to check before you book any Manchester musician or band for your special day! 

Watch Videos of Your Band

We live in the age of video and media.

We hate to break it to you, but most couples don’t get to see their wedding band before they book. Unless you are lucky enough to see them at a friend’s wedding (or are in the business of crashing weddings!), then you are going to have some difficulty in seeing these acts live.

As professionals, wedding function bands are restricted to private events 99% of the time. This is why videos are so important.

Live clips are awesome if you can get hold of them. Scout the band out on social media and see what they are like! How do they interact with each other and the crowd? This will give you a good idea of what they are like on stage.

Consider Your Wedding Venue 

Of course, you will want to find a band that fits your personality as a couple. But have you considered your venue and how they will fit in there too?

If having a killer live wedding band is important to you, then you need to make sure they are right for your venue. 

Firstly, find out if your venue has a sound limiter or any noise restrictions. If they do, it’s not always a problem - but it can affect what style of band you have! The sooner you know this, the easier your wedding entertainment search will be.

You should also ask to see the space where the band will set up (and the dance floor). Getting a good idea of the room you have to work with will assist you in finding the perfect wedding band in Manchester.

Go Through The Setlist

A band is nothing without their arsenal of songs.

Scour their setlist and see what they have in their repertoire. Make sure you are thinking about your guests when you do this!

It’s great if a band knows all your favourite songs, but do they have enough to cater for all your guests? 

The best wedding bands in Manchester will be able to lean towards a certain genre like rock, pop, R&B or folk, whilst still having the high energy classics in there for everyone to enjoy.

Read Wedding Band Reviews 

Consistent reviews are important for any wedding vendor.

Reading reviews from real couples who have had the same band at their wedding is extremely useful. Doing your research is more than just reading reviews though! 

Check how many reviews the band have to see how often they are going out. Are they busy and in demand as performers?

Pay close attention to what couples are saying as well. Are the band friendly, easy to work with and hard working? Look for all this, and more to make sure you can trust your wedding musicians.

Real wedding blogs are another great resource to learn more about your wedding suppliers. If you are looking for Manchester wedding bands for hire then it is a good idea to find real wedding blogs from other Manchester based weddings, and see what band they chose!

Pay Attention to Their Look

Not enough people talk about this, but it’s really important. Your band has to look the part, as well as sound the part.

A band’s appearance can tell you a lot about them. Every band has a distinct style and personality that sets them apart.

If a band takes pride in the way the dress and present themselves, it is usually a good indication that they take themselves seriously as a professional wedding band and professional musicians. Even better if the band matches your venue and theme with the way they look, it makes a huge difference overall!
