Los Angeles Wedding Music On A Budget
by Judy Chamberlain
April 8, 2012
Getting married in the Greater Los Angeles area? Orange County, Santa Barbara, San Diego and Palm Springs brides know how expensive it can be to rent a venue, provde a great meal and an open bar for your guests, arrange for lovely flowers, a great wedding photographer, fabulous wedding dress – and a king’s ransom of other gooda ans servces – out here in the Wild West.
The costs just keep mounting until planning a California wedding becomes painful – and you haven’t even been hit with the valet parking service’s fees yet!
Savvy brides also want to have live music for their weddings.
Well, of course they do!
Live music totally makes a wedding…but only if it’s done right (that means it’s about YOU, not about US).
Live music, you say – fairly tearing your hair out.
Before you decide to take most of the fun out of your wedding by plugging in an iPod, you may want to know why those party bands are so expensive.
First of all, they’re top-heavy. They need to have lots of people onstage in order to do a variety of music. They have backup singers who sing one or two songs each, and often the hardest working person up there is the guy with the computer – who is cue-ing up pre-recorded “backup tracks.” Somebody had to spend the time recording those, and if you have a list of songs these guys don’t know, they have to learn them. That means they take some of your money and put it toward rehearsals.
We’re different: we know 4,000 songs!
Some of our musicians are Grammy winners; all are top virtuoso players.
Our small ensembles are much more entertaining – and definitely more versatile – than all of the “party bands,” cover bands” and “tribute bands” put together.
We’re the exact opposite of what most wedding bands can offer clients.
As I mentioned, most bands need to to have a lot of people in them: backup singers, dancing girls…groupies to pass out sunglasses…in order to offer musical versatility.
It borders on the ridiculous – and guess who’s paying for all this fun. You are!
With us, your guests provide the fun – spurred on by us, as we play great tunes and interact with each other, you, your guests…it’s crazy and fabulous!
You also get some really smooth first dance orchestrations, seamless pacing and announcing…pretty much everything you need to royally entertain your guests and have the most magical, memorable wedding anyone you know has ever attended.
We think it’s important to have the wedding of your dreams – at a price you can afford!
Call us; let’s talk!
