Questions To Ask Your Band Before Booking


Key information to understand:

  • Their style
  • If they emcee and make announcements + what is their style
  • Number of hours of service + charge for overtime
  • Requirement for breaks
  • Stage requirements
  • Greenroom requirements
  • Meal and alcohol requirements
  • Ability to provide music / amp / mics for ceremony and cocktail hour
  • Do they provide a lapel mic for the officiant?
  • Do they provide a handheld/wireless mic for toasts?
  • Do they provide a mic stand and mic for readers or soloists?
  • If they have back-up equipment in case any fails
  • If they have lighting options

Additional questions to ask:

  • How do you motivate the crowd if they aren’t dancing?
  • What is your back up plan if band members get sick or have an emergency?
  • Will we meet again before the wedding?
  • Can we visit you at a performance?
  • How involved can we be in selecting the music for our day?
  • When do we need to finalize those selections?
  • Do you take requests from guests?
  • Can we submit a “do not play” list?
  • What will you wear?
  • Do you play recorded music during breaks?
  • Do you set up a sign or banner with your table?
  • Are you able to learn songs, and is there a cost?
  • Are my VIP songs (first dance, father/daughter dance, mother/son dance) in your current repertoire? If not, can you play them recorded?
