Common Problems Getting a Band for Your Venue

Keep Getting Asked, Not Sure Where To Direct

Whether you’re having an open day for your venue or showing around a prospective couple, one of the questions they’re likely to ask is whether you can recommend a live act for their wedding. Saying no at this point makes you and your venue appear unhelpful, which is not a good look. Of course, signposting them to a local band you know nothing about could end up being even worse. With the right connections and a professional musical partner, you can give them all the help they need with no risk to you or your brand.

Worried About Dealing With Bands

Professional bands and musicians rarely live a 9-to-5 lifestyle. Many of them work unpredictable hours, often gigging late into the night or travelling from one gig to the next. Can you be certain you can get hold of them when you need to? Will they ask the right questions of you or your client to ensure the gig runs smoothly? Will they be honest and transparent with their prices and promises? Can you even be sure they will turn up on time or that they will know what to do when they arrive? These are all legitimate concerns for a wedding venue and an important reason to use a trusted musical agent to secure entertainment for your clients.

Will the Musicians Respect the Venue

Wedding venues are expensive to maintain, and your clients expect them to look and feel amazing for their big day. When you hire an unknown band to play at your location, you need to know that they will respect the venue. This doesn’t just meet aesthetics but also any local noise regulations, in-house restrictions, power limitations, and more. Failure to abide by these guidelines can ruin a wedding and your venue’s reputation.
