What you can expect from the band at your wedding
Wedding bands and musicians will make every effort to accommodate your needs on your wedding day.

Most Wedding Bands Will:

Announce the members of your wedding party as they enter the reception and make general announcements.
Provide recorded music while on breaks so the party never stops. The music can be CDs that either you or the band provide. (This may not apply to smaller acoustic or jazz and swing bands - inquire about your specific band with your booking manager)
Take requests from their repertoire prior to the reception, and will accommodate as many of your requests as they can during the performance.
Learn one song as a special request for each reception, i.e. for a first dance (given 60 days notice within a reasonable music style). They can also play the requested song though the sound system on CD by the original artist.
Provide a state-of-the-art professional sound system to ensure clear sound at an acceptable volume.
Always present and conduct themselves professionally.
Work with YOU and your wedding coordinator or wedding planner to ensure a smooth flow to your reception and will help to solve any problems that may arise to make your reception a complete success!

(Please confirm with your booking manager about the specific capabilities and procedures of your individual band)
