When it comes to choosing a Chicago wedding entertainment, you must be careful when making your selection, or you run the risk of wasting the money that you will spend on the reception, the flowers, and the food. You may be wondering how this is possible but imagine you select a band, and they don’t show up on the wedding day. This could in itself ruin your reception thus the need to choose a professional group is vital. Look for the following when hiring a Chicago wedding band.
The Band Review
Try and look at many reviews as you can. If they have a specific date they were written, that is better. Showing the specific date tells you that the band is doing consistently high-quality work over a period and not just one wedding in three years. You must check to see whether the review is enthusiastically written or it’s just a thank you with an unknown date.
Check to ensure their versatility. Check to see whether they are capable of playing a variety of music to keep all your guests on the floor. The band should have an extensive list of their collection. Also check whether the band is willing to learn new songs and whether they will charge you for this service.
Check their Videos
The the band should be able to provide you with a video from a recent live wedding. This is far much superior to something that has been shot in the studio which can be easily manipulated and edited over and over. At Your occasion, they have just one chance. Thus it is essential to show the reaction of the crowd to what the band is playing.
Credibilty of the Band
See the awards or honors that the band has produced as well as any list of their prestigious clients. Look at their experience and whether they had to change their personnel often or even change their name. It is also necessary that you search for them online and see where they are ranked.
Consider things like how fast they were able to get back to you after you filled an inquiry or left a message, whether they have an office staff, whether you can talk to the band leader or you will have to deal with assistants. See whether they remember your previous conversation and that they respond to your emails timely and assess whether they care about you as an individual or as an account number.
Consider any other resources that they have to assist you from the time you sign the agreement to the wedding day. This could include resource centers that you can choose your music from, or a template of your schedule to keep you organized.
