5 Expert Tips For Booking Your Wedding Band

Entertainment is high up on every bride and grooms wishlist. So, choosing your wedding band should not be taken lightly! We caught up with The Connor McKeon Band ahead of their showcase in Powerscourt Estate on Sunday 31st January. Here are their top tips for booking your dream wedding band…

The Connor McKeon Band

Make Sure They Have Good Quality Video Online

The band’s presence online will be an early indicator as to whether you are a fan of their music. Watch a few of their videos to see the quality and type of songs they regularly play at weddings.

Go To See The Band Live

Nothing beats going to see a live performance. It would be a huge mistake to miss an opportunity to see your preferred band up close and personal. You can get a feel of their style and see how they get the crowd going. Grab some of your bridal party and soak up the atmosphere, get their opinion and make a night of it. The Connor McKeon Band will be showcasing at Powerscourt Estate on Sunday January 31st from 1-4pm. RSVP to info@connormckeon.ie

Read Testimonials

Online reviews and recommendations from past wedding couples speak volumes when it comes to trusting your supplier. Previous couples who were happy with how the band performed, how they communicated from their initial inquiry and how they built up a relationship ahead of the big day, will mean a lot in the long-run. You can rest easy that your guests will enjoy a fabulous night of entertainment.

Book Early

Most brides and grooms-to-be get in touch with the band they like and also maybe a few more. Soon they’re bombarded with information and can’t make a decision. Sit down at night without any distractions and highlight your top five. Don’t leave it on the long finger as many couples tend to book their evening entertainment very early on – and you’ll have to go for second best!

Trust Their Judgement

When choosing the playlist, let the band play to their strengths as opposed to pushing other styles of music that may not typically be in their genre. For sure – it’s good to suggest songs you definitely want to hear on the night but otherwise, you’re far better off leaving the band do what they are best at. All good bands will be happy to take on any songs that are special to you and perform them on the night… just ask.
