about choosing the right singer/musicians & type of music for your wedding dinner entertainment

Being in this line- as entertainer at wedding dinners, I have seen a lot of different scenario that will either lead to a memorable wedding or the other way round.

Hereby I would like to share some tips that might be useful to brides and grooms to be. Of course, I first like to share about tips to hire musicians and singers at your wedding reception.Why? Hee hee, so you will be my client soon.

In music industry, there are different catagory of musicians. They are, a) Interractive band with all types of music ( like us ), b) Chinese Orchestra, c) Jazz band, d) String Quartet, e) top 40's band,f) Unplugged style and some other style that is less common.

First of all, please find out the terms of music category because if you don't understand the term you might end up hiring the type of band that's  not suitable for your wedding.

Secondly, you can ask the musicians you wanted to hire to give you a list of songs so you will know roughly what songs you will expect from them. ( like i always do )

Thirdly, if you felt they are suitable, then you can arrange a meeting with them at a coffee parlour or at their office(if the band is under an agent,wedding planner,event management you will only have a chance to look at their profile /song list/photo &video,therefore you won't be able to know the personality of your musician).But if it's a direct source(singers/musicians) then you'll have a clear picture of the band ( base on punctuality of meeting, whether he or she is a joyful person and etc...)

If everything passed, Congratulation you've got yourself a band for your wedding reception.
