What type of music?
Finding an energetic live reception wedding band can certainly be a challenge. The first question is what type of reception wedding band you are after in terms of style of music? There are plenty to choose from and it can be overwhelming. A few pointers to help you in your initial search. First, sit down with your partner to discuss your budget. This will assist you in filtering bands based on price. This is important as price differences can be immense. Next, think about what type of wedding you are having. Is it formal, traditional, modern, rustic, relaxed, the list goes on. Find a band that matches your wedding theme. Remember, music will set the mood. So if you are going for a string quartet but your wedding is rustic it might not go well together.
Do your due diligence
Once you narrowed down your search a little, check the song list of the band to see if their music aligns with your taste. Most reception wedding bands will be happy to learn a few songs for special moments such as cutting the cake or first dance. However, most songs they will play are from their song list. Once you have found your favourite reception wedding bands, check their packages, their prices and see if they are available. After that, I would highly recommend either going to see them play live somewhere or at least catch up for a drink to discuss your wedding music.
