Updated: Mar 27

Greetings, future dancefloor dominators! Planning the mother of all parties for your big day? Well, before you commit to a musical marriage with a wedding band, let's make sure you're asking the right questions. We're SouthWestBand, based in the heart of Yorkshire, and we're here to spill the secrets on what to ask before taking the plunge into auditory bliss.

1. "Are You Available on [Your Wedding Date]?"

- Let's start with the basics. Secure the date first, because nothing says heartbreak like falling in love with a band that's already taken. There's no such thing as too early to get your dream suppliers locked down.

2. "What's Your Repertoire Like?"

- Get the lowdown on their musical arsenal. At SouthWestBand, our repertoire is as diverse as a wedding guest list – from classics to contemporary bangers, we've got it all.

4. "How Do You Handle Song Requests?"

- Want a specific tune that's not on the playlist? Check if they're up for the challenge. SouthWestBand thrives on spontaneity and welcomes your musical whims. If we've played it before, or even if we've just heard it before we can probably give it a go!
