STRIKE UP THE BAND
Maybe you’ll swing to a band, or, maybe it’s a string quartet or a jazz trio or a DJ with all the best dance tunes in hand. When planning your reception entertainment, consider the size of the room and the overall mood of the celebration. Then ask all the right questions:
Ask the leader to describe their style. Does it match your own?
Can they play certain ethnic tunes or family favorites if requested?
How large an area can they accommodate? Will they bring their own sound system?
Can they perform overtime hours if needed?
If you want, can the band leader do double duty as the master of ceremonies for the evening?

Has he worked at your particular wedding site before? Is he willing to visit the site to check out the electrical requirements in advance?
How much equipment will he bring? Should you provide a table or stand for extra equipment?
How obtrusive are the speakers he plans to use?
Does he plan to act as the master of ceremonies, too?
Can you provide a list of songs you don’t want, as well as those you’d like to request? Promise to provide the list as soon as possible.
