3. What’s the one piece of advice you would give when booking a band?
“ I’d advise when looking for live music wedding and party band do your research. A good band and artist will have a depth of great reviews, videos and demos. Watching videos is also a great way to see the band and artist in action. Most of all I would say booking live music is well worth the investment. Music is what makes memories and a great night for you and your guests. A good band with talented, professional musicians who care about giving you quality – from talent and stage presence to equipment and lighting is worth every penny. And finally, go with your gut instinct. It’s never wrong.”
