Why Hiring A Wedding Band In Melbourne Is The Best Thing You Can Do

Planning your live entertainment is an important part of your wedding day. It’s next on the list after you’ve chosen your venue, picked catering service and decided on your theme.

The formalities are over, you’ve had your ceremony, taken photographs and cut the cake. Now it’s time to let your hair down and enjoy your wedding celebration. What’s better than listening to great live music and having fun on the dance floor with your partner, family and friends?

From getting your guests involved, to creating an awesome atmosphere, hiring a wedding band in Melbourne will be one of the best choices you make. Here's a list of reasons why hiring a wedding band in Melbourne for your big day might just be the best thing you do.

Live wedding music is ultimately the best choice

There is absolutely no denying that live wedding music is so much better than hearing it from DJ speakers (even if the speakers are amazing). The sheer presence of a live band can instantly change the atmosphere of any venue or event.  It will enhance the party atmosphere and make your day a memorable one.

Live music is infectious and even if you’re not into the music, the beat will surely get you moving, if not at least get your feet tapping.

Whatever your tastes

The best thing about hiring a wedding band in Melbourne, is that there will definitely be the perfect wedding entertainment to suite your style. From a pop covers band to a jazz band, rock band, etc.

Crowd Pleasing

The best thing about live wedding bands in Melbourne, is their ability to engage with your guests and encourage them onto the dance floor. Whether it be dancing, singing or doing the conga, some of the top wedding bands can even get your grandparents up and dancing.

Most professional wedding bands in Melbourne have many years of experience and are able to read the crowd to get a feel of what your guests enjoy. They’ll know what to play and what not to play and can be as interactive as they feel necessary. If your close friends and relatives are quite rowdy, the band will surely play up to this and make them have an amazing night of enjoyable, interactive entertainment!

Nothing says romance more than being serenaded with a love song from a live a professional wedding band. Although this might not be everyone’s taste, there is something very romantic about live music, no matter what the genre. Given that it’s a wedding, there’s got to be some romance about, so why not make your day even more special with a live wedding band?

Your bridal waltz is the most important song played on your wedding day and also the first song you'll dance to as an official married couple. The band can learn your song and make it absolutely magical. There’s nothing better than dancing to your special song together, performed by a live wedding band, who will most likely sound just as good as the original artist!

A big bonus, is that if you are shy and don’t want all the attention, the band are up there with you. They can easily invite your guests onto the dance floor so you’re not there on your own with everyone watching.

Many couples are put off by wedding bands who have have a limited song list and believe they will only play what's in their repertoire. This is not always true however, as a professional band is always happy to learn extra songs, but would require some prior notice to have them ready for your day (it’s only fair). However if you hire a talented band, they will have the experience to take requests on the day. This will be even better and another reason to hire a professional live wedding band!

A day to remember…

Of course, there is no denying that your special day will remain in the memories of your friends and family for years to come, but including a wedding band at your reception will take it to a whole new level! Your guests will always remember good food and good entertainment. Hiring the best wedding band in Melbourne will guarantee a party night that will be remembered for many years! Trust us, it’s completely worth it!

Wedding Reception Band

4 Reasons To Choose A Band For Your Wedding Reception

It’s no secret that planning a wedding is hard work. There are so many different details to consider, from the dress to the venue to the cake to the food… and, of course, the entertainment. It’s this area where many people become unstuck; should you go DJ, wedding band or a DIY-playlist that you play through a speaker.

To make this planning process easier for you, we have a few things to say about why choosing a band for your entertainment is always the best idea…

Bands always beat a playlist

Perhaps you’re tempted to save a few dollars of your wedding budget by forgoing a band and choosing your own tracks. After all, your favourite songs are on Spotify and it should only take you a few hours to make the best party playlist anyone has ever heard… right?

Here’s the thing; having a live band will always create a better atmosphere than a regular playlist. They can tailor their performance to your favourite songs and throw in a few that they know are crowd favourites as well. Not only will this mean less work for you in the lead up to your wedding day, but you won’t need to worry about your guests having a good time – with a band, it’s guaranteed that they will.

You won’t have to organise equipment

Hiring equipment like speakers and microphones can be extremely expensive and a nightmare to set up. No one wants to have their speakers malfunction right before all the guests arrive - but when you get a band to play, you can feel confident that you won’t run into these mishaps.

Most wedding bands bring with them all their own equipment. This makes it much easier for you to sit back and relax as the entertainment is taken care of from start to finish. Among the chaos of your wedding day, you will be glad that you chose this simple option.

It gets the party going

Most bands are made up of seasoned performers; people who are passionate about bringing music to celebrations and watching the crowd love every second of it.

This might not seem like an obvious reason to choose a band, but it is. Performers bring personality to the room, whether it’s through their voice, their dance-moves or their humour. They know how to get people out of their seats and enjoying themselves, which is what all bride-and-grooms-to-be want for their wedding day.

Ultimately, it will make your celebration more lively and memorable in a way that a playlist connected to your iPhone never could.

It adds a unique touch to your special day

All of these factors lead up to one thing; you want to look back on your wedding day and remember it as the magical, blissful time it was. When you remember something as special as your first dance or cutting the cake, it should be done to the soundtrack of gorgeous, perfectly timed music that you love.

These are all the things that make your big day truly your own. So whether you’re into country, pop, rock or classical music, find a band who can bring this part of your personality to your wedding – it won’t be a decision you’ll regret.

Booking A Wedding Band

When Should I Book My Wedding Band

Today’s blog is in response to a few questions we’re often asked about when clients should book their wedding bands. As anyone who is in the midst of planning their wedding knows, there are a hundred-and-one things to think about and organise: the venue, the service, the invites, the flowers, the photographer, the clothes, the speeches… and of course your wedding band.

The easy answer to the question ‘when should I book my wedding band?’ is of course: as soon as possible. Typically Paris by Night Entertainment is booked 6-12 months ahead of performance dates. This is especially the case for summer Saturdays. So, if you are getting married on a Saturday in December then ideally you should get in touch with us the summer before.

 

How far down the road do my plans have to be?

The only essential requirement is that you must know what date your wedding or event will be. As long as you know that, then you can make a simple deposit payment to secure book Paris by Night Entertainment as your wedding band for your big day. Once you have your venue booked, then we can fill in all the other details.

The post-Christmas rush

Whilst December is a busy month for Paris by Night Entertainment in terms of performing, it is January when we always receive a flood of enquiries from clients interested in booking Paris by Night Entertainment for their summer dates. Christmas is a busy time for most of us, so wedding plans often go on hold until the new year. With this in mind, if you get in touch with us before the Christmas period gets underway, you might just snap us up for your summer date before the rush.

What if I’ve left everything to the last minute?

There are many reasons why clients have to leave booking their wedding band in Melbourne until close to their wedding date: some weddings are spontaneous, some clients have to see through work commitments before they can be sure when they will be free, etc. If you are planning your wedding for just a few months in the future, as always, let us know as soon as you can. Although most summer Saturdays are booked a long way ahead of time, there is always a chance that we’ll still be available for your date, even with just a few months to go. As always, the sooner you get in touch, the better.

 

Weekday weddings

Saturdays are by far the most popular days for wedding bands in Melbourne, but Paris by Night Entertainment is also booked for many weekdays throughout the year, with Fridays being the next busiest day of the week. There is certainly a little less demand for weekday bookings but it’s impossible to predict when enquiries will come in. So, yet again, the advice is to try to contact us as soon as possible.

If you are planning your wedding and would like to book Paris by Night Entertainment as your wedding band in Melbourne, contact us now through the contact form, to receive your all-inclusive quote.

Performing in a wedding band is the best job in the world!

Just a short post today, about why performing in a wedding band is one of the best jobs in the world for a musician. That’s a bold statement but really, performing in a wedding band is fantastic, and here are three reasons why…

 

The wide range of music

When Paris by Night performs at weddings we get to play all sorts of different styles of music from right across the decades. We’re not one of those bands that only plays soul music or only plays disco.

We play plenty of both of those styles but we also play the best-loved pop music from across the decades, we also play some funk, rock and roll, Motown and even Italian if needed, ensuring we're always providing the very best wedding entertainment in Melbourne!

We’re always adding tunes to our repertoire too. Recently we’ve been playing Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t Stop The Feeling’ which is great fun to play and goes down fantastically well on the dance floor! We couldn’t do that if we were a tribute band that had to only play songs by one band or in one style of music.

 

The dancing

Our main role as a wedding band in Melbourne is to give a performance that will get EVERYONE on the dance floor! Yep, we mean everyone; from your tiny niece to your great grandparents.

Seeing a dance floor fill with guests (and stay full) is a very rewarding experience. With how many other jobs do you see such an immediate and clear response to what you do?

With other kinds of band work you play to an audience that may be seated through the whole performance. Of course the audience may love the music that you play and clap at the end, but that’s really no comparison to seeing 200 people flood a dance floor and throw shapes all night long.

 

The happiness!

The best reason of all: weddings are HAPPY occasions!

With how many jobs do you get to work for someone on one of the happiest days of their lives, and to contribute further to their happiness?

There’s certainly a lot of responsibility that comes with performing for a client on their wedding day, which is why we take so much care in our planning. We have a perfect track record spanning more than 10 years because we understand how important that day is. There can be no such thing as an excuse for something going wrong. So, we are super serious when it comes to planning and reliability, but super-fun when it comes to the performance.

Performing in a professional wedding band is a pretty unique occupation and we’re very grateful for it.

 

Conclusion

So, there you have our three top reasons for why performing in a wedding band is one of the best jobs in the world: the music, the dancing and the happiness. What a great combination.

And if you take a look at the top of this post, you’ll see a little photo our singer took midway throughout our performance… that’s what we’re talking about.
