Why hire a band through a professional music agency?
Why you should hire a band for your wedding through a professional music agency
Your wedding is one of the most important days of your life. It is a time for you to gather your friends, family and loved ones to join you and your new wife or husband and celebrate your new marriage. However, planning the perfect wedding takes time, experience and effort to ensure that everything is in place and runs smoothly. You will need to coordinate your venue, caterer, photographer, entertainment, florist, cake, and the logistics of other suppliers as well as your guests. This can seem like a huge amount and a little overwhelming, and this is where the services of a professional music agency will invaluable.
A music agency such as Gecko Live will talk to you about what you would like and what is best for you. Based on this information Gecko will go away and offer different ideas, acts and bands that will fit with your preferred styles and make suggestions that will fit well with your venue and timings for the day. Below are the 3 main reasons why booking a band through a music agency is the best way forward:
1. Connections within the industry
Most professional agencies such as Gecko Live, have many connections across wedding venues, wedding planners, florists and photographers. Once you have booked your band with the agency, Gecko will talk to your venue, wedding planner and photographer to ensure that the logistics for the day work perfectly. Wedding venues like to work with agencies as both have a single point of contact who they talk to regularly, and this build a trusted partnership between the venue and the act that you have booked.
2. Ability to schedule
Live music agencies are specialists in events and weddings. They are specialists because of the years of experience and number of weddings they have dealt with and helped to organise. Every wedding is different, but often follow a similar time line in terms of their timings for the day. This level of knowledge will allow the agency to plan when to have artists arrive and set up normally without you having to explain anything to them. Even when multiple acts are booked, a professional music supplier will be able to time the day so that there is minimal disruption to you and your celebrations and maximise the entertainment and flow of the day.
3. Artist options
There are huge number of bands and musical options for your wedding entertainment. This is a mountain of options for you to loo through, and will take up you r valuable time. Gecko for instance work in 2 ways; Firstly it has a great selection of party bands that it can immediately recommend based on your brief; Secondly Gecko can work to your brief and do the searching on your behalf, gathering all the information you need such as promo videos, prices and performer line ups of artists that would be ideal for you. This is done not only through the current line up that we have available, but also searching through our database of thousands of performers and finding new talent.
This resource also allows the agency to provide alternatives in the case of performer unavailability.
