Wedding Singer Hire Sydney

Wedding Singer Hire Sydney

When google-ing “wedding bands ” or “wedding singer hire Sydney,” there will be thousands of options of wedding music 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 and up and comers.

How do I know the difference between Sydney wedding bands?

We know when you think of wedding singers you may be reminded of that classic Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer. As hilarious and timeless as that movie is, that is the last thing we want you to have as your experience when booking an events entertainer.

How then can you choose the perfect live band for your special wedding day?

Let’s begin with a few guidelines on what separates the great party bands from the rest of the crowd. As a professional musician with years of experience playing in one of Australia’s top bands you can learn a thing or two from me. Here are my guidelines as follows.

Key questions asked relating to wedding singer hire Sydney

EXPERIENCE

Having a few years of solid experience is the main ingredient separating the best and worst wedding bands. Ideally, you are looking for a band that has already performed at least 50-100 weddings and has some good reviews and testimonials along the way.

So much is learned on the musical journey that by the time they get to you, you want them to be absolutely awesome and in fine form, whether it is an acoustic duo or a five-piece band with a tight rhythm section, you’ll want a band with solid experience under their belt. Even better, you’ll want to find evidence of this online.

PROFESSIONALISM

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

PUNCTUALITY

These days, it’s easy to navigate around with the help of a GPS, but you still need to know the lay of the land and anticipate traffic conditions. 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!

VENUES

Experienced musicians will have played at wedding venues time and time again. This means they can advise 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? (And will attendees want time to enjoy it and the lively conversation that typically accompanies a fine meal.)
  • How much space is there for the dance floor and band to set up? (And how much equipment does the band need to provide in that space?)

There are plenty of fantastic wedding and event venues in Sydney with a ton of pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels ready to accommodate weddings of any size. Surrounding areas such as the Hunter Valley and the Southern Highlands are also just around the corner. Experienced wedding singers and bands will know most venues intimately and will have welcome recommendations as to which AV and sound system to use depending on the venue.

Here are some top venues and locations which Lily Road perform at regularly and would like to highly recommend:

SONGS FOR WEDDINGS

Does the wedding band you are looking for have an extensive song list? It’s important that the band has a large repertoire of songs for weddings. This would mean that they can adapt and play songs of all genres spanning over generations to cater to all your guests and friends and family on the night. Knowing the right songs to play at the right time is SO important as the music accompanying .

DOES THE SAME BAND KEEP POPPING UP?

You’ve seen them countless times at wedding expos around Sydney, you’ve been referred their name by a friend, you’ve done a random Google search and they have appeared on easyweddings.com.au 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!

Those are the signs of a reputable business. It means you’re dealing with a serious and professional wedding music band. Clearly, they promote themselves and are confident in their ability to provide quality wedding entertainment for your special day.

If the band you have chosen ticks all of the above boxes, then you are likely to have a fantastic wedding to remember. If you are still looking for that special band consider reaching out to us.
