Wedding live bands top requested reception songs.

Bandleader Sandy Vine shares Top requested songs and basic questions when shopping wedding live bands.

Ask the leader of the Wedding live bands.
• How much wedding reception experience do you have?
• Do you take and play requests?
• Does the band come with its own sound system? Is the system adequate for my reception?
• What does your cost include. How many musicians? Hours of the performance. Number and length of sets. Number and length of breaks?

Usually the word of mouth is always the best form of advertisement.

Ask friends, co-workers and family if they have been at a recent function where a great band has performed.

When checking out reception venues ask the coordinator for band recommendations. Make sure they  have done performances in their room. Most will be glad to refer you to any band that they know is professional. One they can trust with the recommendation as well.

Ask other wedding service professionals for referrals. Especially those in wedding services. Photography and video. Wedding planners. Catering. These are the services that deal with bands during the course of the reception.

But it is still your responsibility. Check out the band personally. Decide if they are the right choice for your reception.
