This question has no real right answer and purely depends on your idea of good music is. However, when we talk about choosing a wedding music band it is important that you consider all the available options and choose the type of music that will compliment the type of wedding that you want to have.
There are several parts of a wedding and at these times there are different kinds of music that is played so that the wedding is a success. By alternating between an instrumental band and having a vocalist join the band at different times you can get the perfect balance of music that you need during your wedding.
The best time for an instrumental band
Most of the time the guest show up early and have to wait for a while before the ceremony can start. It is important that you have some soft music that can carry on in the background while these guests who have arrived early interact with each other. If there was only silence during this period 20 mins wait for the start of the ceremony can feel like it is 2 hours. It is also easier to control the guest with the use of the music rather than trying to tell them what to do when. It is easier for the guests to know that the ceremony is about to start when there is a change in the tempo of the music and they take their places. In the same way, after the ceremony is over and the guests are leaving that area and going into the reception area the instrumental band can play soft soothing music so that there isn’t silence. Another good time for instrumental music is during dinner time as this will not hamper any conversation at the dinner table.
The best time to have a vocalist
A vocalist is mainly required when the guests are dancing and to make the environment more energetic and to encourage more guests to get onto the dance floor and participate. They can also sing songs on request. They can also sing songs for the children to dance to so that they do not feel left out.
The benefit that you get by choosing to have a Live Band at the wedding is that they are versatile and can cater to all your musical needs and make your wedding day the wedding of your dreams.
