COMMENT from bride from Wedding 17th August 2013:
Thank you to the spectacular Flower Power Band for playing at our wedding this weekend - fantastic songs which got everybody dancing and made it a brilliant night! ...
What Makes A Great Wedding Band?
There are bands and there are wedding bands, what is the difference? We can only tell you why we are so good at what we do and what you get for your money!
1) A Seamless Hour of Dance Songs When we perform for dances we medley songs without gaps. This is so important to keep the dance floor full; how many times have you seen men leave the dance floor as soon as a song finishes?! There are many bands who perform a song and stop, then prepare for the next song and start again. It is very hard to perform a non-stop set live, you will not hear many stops in our wedding set!
2) Detailed Preparation During the booking stage we will have general discussions on times, first dance etc. However about a week before the big day, you can expect a phone discussion of about half an hour where we discuss all the finer details so that everything runs smoothly and you will feel very confident without worries about your wedding band.
3) Flexibility Do not underestimate how important it is that your wedding band can adjust quickly to your situation. most weddings do not run on time and the wedding band are normally the last organised part of the day. We are very flexible with times and are able to adjust our prepared set lists to suit. This often means having shorter intervals to make up the lost time along with changing our sets to suit the new timing.
4) Songs that work One big mistake we see happening is the wedding couple choosing a night of songs that they love forgetting that maybe their choice is not enjoyed by their guests. Unless you have an unusual wedding you will have a mixed age group from youngsters to elderly and although it is important that you enjoy the music played, you will be disapointed on the night if most people were not dancing. The Flower Power Band will perform a selection of songs that are well known, often originally from the 1960's 70's but all have been covered by well known bands over the decades. We know what works with mixed age groups and our exciting, lively songs keeps the dance floor full - that's our job!
We're not the cheapest band - if you want 'cheap' go to your local pub with live bands. If you want 'cheap' hire a Renault Clio for your wedding car, go to Primark for your wedding dress and book a fish & chip van for your wedding breakfast!
Having said that we are very competitive
