Entertainment is a huge factor to consider in the wedding planning process, and it should be given due consideration sooner rather than later! Because admit it; more often than not, your guests will not be able to recall the theme of your wedding cake or your beautiful centrepieces, but they will remember gettin’ down without a care with all the new friends they’ve made. And you will never forget seeing all of the most important people in your world dancing together as if they’ve known each other for ever. Or… you’ll remember how the wedding ended at 10:30pm…

There is a lot to consider, starting with the big one: wedding band versus DJ? While there are certainly pros and cons to both wedding bands and DJs, it’s hard to bring a party to life the same way live music can. Still, even once you’ve decided this, there are so many more questions: a harp player or an acoustic guitarist? Should the ceremony music be the same as the reception? What style of band is best for all wedding guests? To avoid becoming overwhelmed, consider your vision for the wedding reception. You know you’ve always had at least a semblance of one. Close your eyes and imagine it. Different visions call for different music: a soothing acoustic set would be perfect for a casual daytime garden reception, while a rollicking variety band has something for everyone and can set the tone for an unforgettable dance party.

To bring a touch of class to your drinks reception or even your wedding breakfast a modern harpist will bring some sophistication to your wedding. I could not recommend anyone better than Angela Moore, who adds notes of sophistication and emotion to everything from the smallest wedding party to celebrity marriages.

After such a wonderful day, the best way for everyone to let their hair down and to finish with a bang is with a fabulous live band. It will help add the wow factor, of a band that will play everyone’s favourite party songs and ensure a jam packed dance floor with an absolute guarantee that if you book the right band, this is the part everyone will be talking about in the following weeks, months and even years to come!

The awesome five piece ‘got it covered’ band will ensure to get the party going for your evening reception. Professional line up for weddings, events and parties – You name it, they’ve “Got It Covered”
