Choosing entertainment for your wedding can be a monumental task. The norm these days is to just hire a DJ. If you can afford it, there is nothing like a live band. Pick a band that fits with the theme of the wedding or the personality of the bride and groom. Having a beach wedding? Choose a surfer or steel drum band. Eighties fans? Pick a great cover band. Be sure to keep in mind the venue and the size of the space. Also, ensure the band is cleared to perform at your venue and if you can, try to see the band perform in person before hiring.
