My mate asked if I knew of any good wedding bands for his sisters wedding so I decided to ask you folk on here.Basically just wondering if anyone has contact details etc.... as I have no idea of the details for the wedding.As I say derry/coleraine though I would imagine travel wouldnt be too much of a problem for a good outfit.Thanks for any help I recieve guys!
Risky Business, the best in the Business.
You want A REAL LIVE BAND, not a 2-3 piece, book the boys at riskybusinessband.com
6 decades of material to choose from, great crowd interaction, fantastic musicians, played alongside The Supremes, Billy Ocean, Mica Paris, to name but a few.
Still a few spaces for 2010.
for a pub gig go direct to the band,for a wedding id reccommend going through an agent such as moonlight entertainment or ambercastle entertainment etc.it means your covered by a contract.make sure u request a full live band if thats what u def want but remember they aint gonna do all the dancey guff so ul need a dj too.there are a few ive bands that also do the dancey stuff towards the end of the night also....best ask about.speak to phil or karan at moonlight,tell em andy sent ya,or colin at ambercastle.
Agents covered by conract? Although correct in what you say I generally know wat they do in a awkward scenario - if a band pulls out (usually on the day) is send two orange coloured young women in catsuits dancin to karaoke backing tracks up to your big day. SOmeitmes with a guy standing behind a keyboard which isnt even plugged in with them to make it look good.
I know people its happened to. Thus contract fulfilled. Plus going through an agent means generally youll pay more.
Look around. Some good bands out there working for themselves who dont want to feed the tigers so to speak.
