So many Wedding Bands… so little time!

You’ve either just commenced the daunting task of finding your perfect wedding band or you’ve already taken the plunge and are already overwhelmed by the hundreds of wedding bands to choose from. So many of these bands claim to be “Ireland’s best wedding band” or “the best in the business” or “the best wedding band in the country”. Obviously, they can’t all be the best!

The truth is that there is no such thing as one wedding band in Ireland that is better than every other because in reality music is subjective. In the immortal words of Macklemore – “one man’s trash that’s another man’s come up!” You shouldn’t simply like your wedding band… you should LOVE your wedding band! 

So here are a few tips for finding great wedding entertainment in Ireland:

Make a list of the bands you really like based on their online video & audio samples.

This bit is important…
Check availability with the ones you like – don’t assume they will be available. Most of the really good bands are really busy. Many bands allow you to “save the date” with a booking deposit. PLAYLIST offer you the option to secure your booking with a fully refundable deposit pending a satisfactory live viewing of the band. That’s one less thing to worry about… phew! 🙂

Go and see the bands that are available for your date.

Pick one that answers YES to the following questions:

Is the band I book, the band I will get on the night of my wedding?
Are you a member of the Wedding Band Association?
Will you play my first dance live?
Are you insured?
Do you provide all the necessary sound/lighting equipment?
Is the band completely live?
Are you able to read the crowd and change the set at the drop of a hat to keep the floor full?

There are of course many more questions that can be asked but in most cases if the answer is YES to all of the above then you should be on to a winner 🙂

A stroke of genius…
