Wedding Bands Scotland


We thought that we'd come up with a small check list of some of the issues you need to consider once you have lined up one of the many wedding bands in Scotland.


1. Check with the venue that you can use live wedding bands Scotland.

Although this may seem an obvious thing to consider you need to talk to the venue with regards to the sort of live entertainment as a number of wedding venues may be sharing facilities with other business such as galleries and museums or places of historical significance and so they might place limitations on volume level and also the size of the band. We'd advise that assuming you have confirmed this with the venue it's advisable to obtain a contact name and telephone number for the band to liaise with.

2. Check with the band about the time they wish to turn up and set up their gear.

For a wedding we would usually arrive 1 hour before the start time. This would give us lots of time to set up all of our equipment and sound check our equipment. The typical kick off time is 8pm therefore we would aim to attend your venue at about 7pm unless otherwise agreed. When a client would like us to setup earlier to the meal there would perhaps be an additional cost for this.

3. Easy access to the Venue in Scotland.

It's fundamental that the Scottish wedding band can get easy access to the reception room principally for Health and safety. Large staircases and elevators may increase the period of time that it will take for the band to transport their equipment and that might impact the schedule for the night. If in the event that lifts would be utilised it is very important that the band may have personal use of the lift for that exact time frame to ensure that their loading in isn't impeded in any way.

4. Wedding Band Requirements

A good number of music bands will need food and drinks sooner or later on the reception. Unless it is for corporate entertainment the band can usually actually eat from the buffet normally provided for the guests, this would naturally be agreed upon before hand with the bride and groom.

5. Timings

The band typically play Three hours within a 4 hour period, just as the majority of wedding bands Scotland. Typical times are usually between 8pm-12am but this really is negotiable. In the event that the reception schedule is delayed the predetermined timings would continue to apply except when the band agrees to play past the contracted finishing time.
