How to rent live entertainment for your wedding reception – cover band or DJ
The right wedding entertainment can really make or break the most important days of your life. It is important as a venue, caterer, photographer, cake, dress … and one of the main things that your guests will remember about your wedding day. DJ keys and shirt and jeans showed? Does he make his drunken street / friend (not on the Austria list) with unrestrained rap music and dirty dance? In the middle versions of “celebrity” and “unforgettable” were the band out of security and bickering? Before lagging behind your fiance with embarrassing, here your guests will say that the music was perfect! It could not be better.
What’s your budget
Music quality is so hanging, it is important to keep an eye on your entire wedding budget and increase the cost of other music. At the critical stage, the music is fine with other important elements of your big day. Trying to spend here can be a big mistake. Many part time bands and DJs can be very cheap (under $ 1000), but why would you want to pay a $ 2500 to rent a outdoor tent, and then put it in the middle of a central DJ or amateur central band. Incorrect entertainment can be effective as rain for your visitors. Consider spending a lot more on recreation than you are going for any of your wedding days. In general, you can offer low quality for a digit, which is probably not very good for the standard quality band and at a lower price than any band in your city as the best DJ.
How do you find the best entertainers?
An internet search for wedding entertainment, disc jockey or wedding musicians may be a good start to rent in your area. A professional wedding band or DJ has a website that has a list of testimonials, a list, their song list, audio samples, photos, and testimonials from previous clients. During initial contact, they should be able to provide concrete references with brides, places, and event planners who have worked with the past. Your wedding planner or venue may also be able to provide good quality entertainment and names of the band or DJs that you should be sure to avoid. An entertainment booking agency is another resource that can be helpful in determining the best fit, but you should always get second opinion (some booking agents are like car dealers used, and they want to sell you in your activities). Do not just take the word for them, do some research online, and if they are listening to the group or have seen the person personally, ask a welcoming venue or event planner in the area.
What about a deal?
Any quality entertainment retailer will present you with a contract of consolidation. Often a reserve deposit will need to be done in advance. The agreement will include details about the details of the event (location, arrival / setup time, start and end times) along with the person (or group) you are dealing with. It may also include the band’s technical requirements, food and accommodation can be included, and may be requested for alternate alternatives for unusual weather conditions (for outdoor events). This agreement represents a legal tie between you and the group, and if there is a mistake, the band does not show or should protect you.
When you purchase the service from Live Band or DJ, it should (but not always) include:
* With the option of increasing the live daytime event or DJ service event day if needed.
* All sound equipment (and light – if needed).
* MC (ceremony master) service. Some emcees are better than others and you would especially talk about what you want to announce: It might try to prevent an uphill DJ from trying to prevent it from the direction that you do not want. Most professional wedding bands will include Emcee services at your request (working with your event planners to help the wedding party launch and evening flow)
