Get the Party Started with NYC Wedding Bands

There’s something about live music that transforms an event. While DJs and playlists have their advantages, there’s nothing quite like a live performance from a talented musician to invigorate a party. For your wedding, consider hiring a wedding band in NYC to perform at your ceremony or reception. Not only can these professionals play your favorite tunes with a twist, but they can also read the room and make adjustments based on the crowd. You’ll be surprised at how much fun they can bring to an already exciting event.

Questions to Ask NYC Wedding Bands

When deciding between the many talented wedding bands in NYC, consider the atmosphere you’re hoping to achieve for your Big Day. A small intimate ceremony followed by a low-key dinner, for example, might warrant a solo jazz performer. A rowdy affair at a NYC brewery, on the other hand, may benefit from an energetic rock band. Consider, too, the songs you’ll want them to play at your reception. If you have a specific song you need to be performed for a first dance, for instance, you’ll want to select a band that’s familiar with the tune.

Whatever your preference music-wise, consider what role you hope the band to play on your Big Day. Ask bands about their availability, their willingness to perform at both the ceremony and reception and about their song request policies. You may also want to ask about the technical needs for their performance – will they bring their own sound system, or will you be expected to provide one at the venue? The answers to these kinds of questions can help you narrow the field of amazing NYC wedding bands available to you.

Other Logistics to Consider

Before you commit to hiring a particular performer or band, be sure to clarify the expectations you have for their appearance. Some wedding bands in NYC will make certain requests for their performance. You’ll likely need to offer them a meal, a stage, and extra time to set up and break down their equipment. It’s also worth checking with your venue to determine how loud you’re allowed to play music and what time the band must finish playing. While the logistics surrounding the band are a bit more complex than the average DJ setup, the payoff is worth it.

As you book wedding bands in NYC along with caterers and photo booths, you’ll want to stay organized and on top of all the tiny details. Consider using our comprehensive wedding checklist to keep up with all your tasks. It’s just one of the many wonderful WeddingWire resources available to you!
