How to really experience a wedding band/DJ before booking

Hi there. Can we come and listen to a band or DJ at another wedding or event before we decide to book?

Bill Olson Music

I have the advantage of playing gigs in my local area every week, so that potential clients can come and hear me play and also meet me and discuss any questions they might have.

Music ideas for straight after the ceremony

Music suggestions please! Trying to figure out an upbeat song to play after our vows when we walk back down the aisle together. Thank you.

Bill Olson Music

I've found that couples regularly choose something a little more upbeat/fun /happy for the recession/exit song, this seems to work well and sets the mood for further celebrations to come.

Furthermore ,i've found that playing upbeat songs in the background, until the guests have left the ceremony is a nice touch

Are there additional fees to have continuous music without breaks?

Bill Olson Music

As a live performer it is important to have regular breaks to keep your vocal and energy levels maintained for the whole event. I regularly play longer sets so i can fit a break in at a more appropriate time, and it is equally as important to have some "break music' playing so there are no gaps and silences in the performance.

If a client insisted on no breaks at all for an extended period of time ,then that would have to be taken in to consideration.

Can you assist me in choosing the music for my wedding?

Bill Olson Music

Part of being a wedding musician is having the skills to help out where appropriate. That includes talking to a couple about the right music for the right moments in their wedding, and helping to make choices around those discussions where needed.

What are the benefits of hiring a band or DJ over DIY music?

Bill Olson Music

I've had personal experience of this very issue where the couple had hired me to provide ceremony/canapes/reception live music ,with no expense spared on any aspect of the days proceedings. Then decided to save some money by not using my DJ services, and plugging in a device to a small speaker for the dancing /party part of the night. As i was packing up i witnessed a very sad looking, empty dance floor.

The benefits of hiring a band or using a DJ mean that you have proffessional people with proffessional equipment that have the skills and knowledge to deliver.
