Before we identify WHO is the best Wedding Band in Texas, let’s define WHAT makes a great wedding band.
Do you want a good band or a great band? The quality of your wedding music will be directly related to the talent level of the people in it. Setting high standards is a must. Have the vocalists performed on national stages? Are the performers also touring recording musicians? Where did the musicians go to school? Have the musicians earned grammy awards? Check out AguaSeca for an example of high level, credentialed talent.
You wouldn’t let the venue choose your food. And you’d probably never allow your planner to choose your dress. So why let the band choose all your songs? Many groups don’t allow set list customization because 1) they either have a limited repertoire or 2) they want to save time. Consider a band like Drywater who has a HUGE song list AND the ability to customize.
You may have read horror stories about fly-by-night entertainment companies either cancelling on the day of or providing sub-par bands far inferior to their promo materials. There is very little barrier to entry with band start-ups, so checking client feedback is a must. Check out our accolades and founders to learn more about Avondale Entertainment and our bands.
When it comes to Wedding Band Production, cleanliness is next to godliness. Whether you prefer dance floor lighting with truss towers, video totems, or a more minimalistic look; a clean and organized production devoid of messy cables and music stands is a must.
Weddings are typically formal events, so black suit w/ black tie is considered standard attire. Specialty items like sequined jackets and tasseled dresses can add more variety. Themed attire like Ralph Lauren wardrobe or Western Chic are a good change of pace.
Do you just want a “live band” OR an amazing musical experience that will help create the kind of special memories that last a lifetime? If you’re interested in the latter, then a combination of talent, song selection, and high-level production combined with the expertise of an experienced entertainment company can yield great results.
We believe the best way to learn about a band is to see them in person. And that’s why all of our groups maintain a private concert schedule.
