This entry is from our Expert Guest series where wedding and honeymoon professionals share their best tips on creating memories that last a lifetime.
Let’s face it, planning a wedding can be difficult. You’re buying lots of products and services you’ve never bought before. You have a short period of time to learn a great deal about things you’ve never thought about. This includes catering, wedding cakes, the perfect wedding dress, and getting the right music. Many times, couples will be out at their favorite bar or restaurant and hear a band they really enjoy. After the band is done playing, they approach the band and ask if they can play their wedding. The band members look at each other and say “sure, why not.” The problem is they don’t realize all that goes into being an actual wedding band. It involves much more than just playing music.
Why Choose A Professional Wedding Band
A great Chicago wedding band will be able to play a wide variety of music, from Sinatra, to Motown to top 40. They will also be able to learn new songs from a variety of genres. The leader of the band is also responsible for taking care of any announcements, introductions and working with all the wedding vendors. A professional wedding band will provide their couples with a state-of-the-art sound system and lighting and will arrive several hours before the wedding to make sure everything is in order.
Bands that play in clubs often start later than planned, wear whatever they want, etc. A professional wedding band wears formal attire. A club band will certainly be much cheaper than a professional wedding band, but if they show up to your wedding 30 minutes late wearing jeans and a t-shirt, unable to work with your vendors, make any announcements or learn your special songs, did you really save money? David Rothstein Music will make sure your guests have the best experience so you can relax.
I invite you to explore our website and learn more about the benefits of hiring professionals instead of the band that plays at your favorite bar. Invest your wedding funds into the best quality you can afford and your guests will thank you.
All my best to you for your big day!
