Expert Advice

As a wedding professional, ALL STAR - Top 40 & Retro Cover Band offers expert advice to help couples plan their perfect day. Ask a question or read their expert advice.

how much does a live musician at your ceremony usually cost?


As many others have said, it does depend on individual circustances and every bands rate charged in different, BUT as a guide:

If ONLY playing at the ceremony, then I would charge my clients a minimum of $400 per player.

If ALSO playing at the reception, then the add on charge for ceremony would be minimum $150 per player.

Hope that helped :)

any must-have songs for weddings?


I don't think there are must-haves, but my band for instance adheres to one particular philospophy, which is "It's not about us, its about YOU". Meaning, any good band should only play songs they that know well with a general audience and NOT just play songs that they the musicians like themselves. 

Its not our job to be precious about our song choices. Our job is to fill the dance floor and keep it filled! 

Which goes first, the first dance or Father/Daughter dance? Thanks!


Theres no hard-and-fast rule, but if you wanted to look at it in the very traditional manner, then having the Father/Daughter dance right before the Bridal Dance can work well. Straight after the father/daughter dance is finished, the Groom walks onto the dance floor, the Father gives the Brides hand to the Groom, the father leaves the dance floor and the bridal dance begins.

I've had many clients wanting to do it this way, so its certainly not unpopular.

Hope that helped!


Band or DJ or both?

I'm thinking about having a live band during the ceremony, and a DJ at night. How much realistically should I expect to pay for each? Or should I just go with one for the entire day?


I think a band and DJ can work, if they work well with each other and dont try to play the same songs. I think in particular, this could work if its a multicutural wedding, where they play completely different music. For example, and Italian or Greek wedding. The band plays all the usual Top 40 and Retro songs and the DJ plays the tradtional and pop music from that country.

Hope that helped!
