So your wedding is fixed, and you are in the mid of making preparations to make your special day really special. One of the best ways to do this is by hiring a professional band to give a live performance on your special day. However the trick to making your day special lies in hiring the right Motown band to perform for you using the help of these tips.
First of all, hire a professional band that you have seen performing before either at another wedding or at some public venue. If you have never seen them performing before, it is important that you listened to their demo CD before doing so. Although bands easily sound good on studio recordings, they should also sound good in live track recordings that they record on their website or demo CD.
Visit their website
A visit to their website gives you an idea of the type of Motown band you are dealing with. Take a look at their photos and other media on their website to find out how professional a band they are. Professional bands always rely on receiving good feedback from their clients so check their testimonials.
So you should find some references and reviews from past customers on their website. Take a look at them to find out what others have to say about the band. If possible, contact their past customers to find out their views about the band.
Find out what type of music the Motown band plays by taking a look at the song or repertoire list most bands have on their websites. It being your special day, the band that you hire should play the music you like, and want. If they do not have any repertoire list on their website, ask them for a copy of their list to find out if they perform in the right style you wish.
Take a look at the Motown bands portfolio or promotional material. Bands with the more professional videos and websites are better quality bands than bands with low quality promo. It's always better to hire a band that is professional and full time as unlicensed semi pro or amateur bands are usually part time or hobby bar bands.
Once you finally choose the right band to play at your wedding, it is very important that you get a signed agreement with the band, in the interest of both yourself and the band. You have to carefully read the contract, understand everything mentioned here, and ensure there are no hidden clauses in them. Be ready for the 20% non-refundable deposit most professional function bands demand to be sent once the date for your event is confirmed.
With the help of these tips and information, you will find it easier hiring professional Motown bands to play at your wedding, and then make the occasion even more special and memorable.
