Looking for a wedding band but not sure where to start? Well you’ve come to the right place…. Okay, I’m a bit bias but we are the best wedding band around: L.O.V.E sign, MC options, dancers, pyrotechnics!!!! … but I digress.

One of the first issues couples tend to have is that there seems to be an absolutely overwhelming number of bands on offer at every turn, from social media to weird DJ’s – and not forgetting that friend of a friend’s cousin’s band who “I promise is really good”.
For this week’s adventure it’s my job to get you in the right frame of mind for finding your perfect wedding entertainment (with as few disagreements as possible)!

Please Plan Ahead!

Although there may appear to be an abundance of wedding bands out there, by the time you’ve whittled down what you like and don’t like, settled on a budget and figured out the bands who service your area, you may find just a handful make it to the shortlist.

That’s why it’s always a good idea to plan well ahead to ensure you get the pick of the bunch.

At REDTIE, we can receive enquiries for up to two years in advance so as soon as you have your date, it’s not a bad idea to get into touch so we can make sure we lock in the perfect band for your perfect day!

What do you absolutely have to have?

This isn’t buying a house but it sure can feel similar! Every couple will have their own wants and wishes when it comes to planning a wedding and the reception band is no exception!

Would you prefer a rocking male vocalist, a soulful diva or why not a bit of both? Are you after a contemporary pop sound with all the latest and greatest chart songs or are you more 90’s tragic and need everything by Wheetus! (oh it’s been done)?

Whatever it is you need to make your special day unforgettable, you’ll have plenty to choose from, so get choosing!

How do I know if a band is any good?

With wedding bands primarily performing at private events, it can be frustrating for couples to not have the opportunity to watch their prospective bands live before booking – so how do you decide?

Well, maybe we can help! The REDTIE band goes to great lengths to showcase our talent every two weeks at Eat Street Markets, Northshore. Our artist promotional videos are specifically recorded to give you the best indication of their live sound, helping you choose which vibe is perfect for your special day!  In my experience, it’s recordings. Okay, yes, a good engineer can tune up easy to tell the quality of a band from their vocals and

add a little bit of show business magic to make things sound smoother but in general the quality of a recording usually reflects the level that the band are at… in many cases, you’ll find they sound even better live.

By using an agency such as REDTIE Band, you can have absolute confidence that every band has been chosen by professionals and meets the required standard. After all, it’s our reputation on the line!

The Bank Always Wins!

When searching for a wedding band, it’s a good idea to get a feel for the costs involved before settling on your entertainment budget. You’ll no doubt come across pub bands on Facebook who are willing to travel across the country for beer money and a pat on the back, but if you’re after a band that exudes quality, charisma and professionalism, you’ll need to come up with a sensible budget that will cover exactly what you’re after.

Make sure that you ask about budget saving contingencies!! We have a few that just might give you the band you want with a price tag to match!
