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 not quite understand this but imagine if the band you choose doesn’t show up the day of the occasion. This could in itself ruin your reception thus the need to choose a professional group is vital. Here are some things that you need to consider when hiring a Chicago wedding band.
Try reading as many reviews as you can. If they include the date they were written, the 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.
Is the band versatile? Check to see whether they are capable of playing a variety of music to keep all your guests on the floor. Make sure that they display an extensive list of their repertoire. Also check whether the band is willing to learn new songs and whether they will charge you for this service.
Look at their Videos
Ideally, the group should provide a video from a recent live marriage. These are far much better than videos shot in the studio which can be easily managed and edited over and over. At your marriage, your band has only one chance thus the need to show the crowd’s response to what the band is playing.
You must check to see the list of honors and awards the group has achieved and a list of their prestigious customers. Check to see their experience and other things like whether they have changed their name or their personnel a couple times. Search for them online and see where they rank.
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.
