Post Choosing Your Band For Hire
Choosing Your Band For Hire
by: Harvey Mcclure

Choosing the right for your event can make the difference between the success and failure of your function. If you make the right choice things will go well and your guests will remember it for a long time. The difficulty comes in selecting the right band as there are literally thousands available. We will try and provide some advice to help you in your choice.

So how do you choose a band? Well the style of the event you are looking to create is paramount and will dictate the atmosphere of your occasion. Do you need background music, a disco or dancing? Also look at the age and expectancy of your guests, if it is a mixed age group maybe you need a group with a wide repertoire.

If the party is themed then this should be reflected by the band you hire. For example if it is a 60s theme then you may wish a band that does Beatles numbers. If you need background music the choice is much wider, you could look at, swing band, woodwind ensemble or even a cocktail piano player.

Another thing to consider is your budget; generally the price of your band will depend on three variables, the number of musicians in the band, how long you need them for, and the experience and reputation of the band. You have to remember that you pay for how long the band are there not just when they are playing and bear in mind they do need breaks. As a ball park figure the cost of an individual will be between £150 and £300 per event. Bear in mind that as with most things you get what you pay for and if a band is cheap they may not be up to the job or be very inexperienced. Check recommendations and repertoires including audio and video samples of the work they do.

You may also have to cover some extra reasonable expenses such as travel expenses, parking and refreshments. Making sure that your band or performers are looked after and well compensated for their art will, in turn, ensure that they are happy in their work and put their all into your event. This will make your function go with a swing and all of your guests will have a marvelous time.

To ensure you get a good band at a reasonable cost it is worth going through an agency that only employ talented performers. Visit and have a look through the range of bands they have available. They are well known as being the best UK live band and DJ hire company. Do not waste your time choosing bands from any old agency pick function central as they really are the experts in this field and will ensure that your event goes with a bang.

The great benefit of using an entertainment booking company is that you are not just relying on just one person or band, if you are let down or, heaven forbid, if the singer loses their voice they will be able to provide you with an alternative in the genre you are looking for.
