When searching the term wedding band Melbourne there will be thousands of options of wedding bands that will pop up. Understandably, searching through pages of bands can be quite exhausting. Fortunately we are here to offer some solid advice to allow you to know the difference between a professional wedding band Melbourne and up and comers.




Having experience is the main ingredient separating the best and worst wedding bands. Ideally you would like a band to have already performed for at least 50-100 weddings. So much is learnt along the way and by the time they get to you, you want them to be absolutely awesome and in fine form!


Some key questions you may ask:

  • Does the band look sharp?
  • Does the band have a website that looks like it’s had some love put into it?!!
  • Are they ready and on point for the key elements of your wedding? ie Bridal entrance, bridal waltz etc


These days it’s pretty easy to navigate around with the help of a GPS. Although anticipating traffic conditions around Melbourne is SO important. This gets back to the point of having experience and having done it all before. The last thing you want is your band turning up late to your big day!


When musicians have played at wedding venues time and time again, it means they can offer you knowledgeable advice on key elements such as:

  • Whether there are sound restrictions or not?
  • Will the ‘in house’ microphone be equipped and loud enough for speeches?
  • Will the venue provide top service in general?
  • Will there be enough food for everyone? Is the food tasty?
  • How much space is there for the dance floor and band to set up?
  • How much equipment does the band need to provide in that space?


Does the wedding band you are looking at have an extensive song list? It’s important that the band have a large repertoire of songs for weddings. It means they can be adaptable and play songs of all genres spanning over generations to cater for all your guests on the night. Knowing the right songs to play at the right time is SO important.


You’ve seen them countless times at wedding expos around Melbourne, you’ve been referred their name by a friend, you’ve done a random google search and they have appeared on or simply you have typed in key phrases such as: wedding entertainment, best wedding bands, wedding singer, wedding singers or wedding bands and there they are!
