As engaged couples break up for the Christmas holidays many of them will turn their attentions to their upcoming wedding and use the Christmas break to forward plan their wedding entertainment and other aspects of their wedding. If they are looking online for wedding entertainment ideas they will be met with a bewildering number of choices both with agencies and individual acts and many will start by asking “why use an agency for your wedding entertainment?”
It’s a fair question and one which I would like to take some time answering.
First of all we offer a quality control service. In all likelihood a private client will book entertainment once in a lifetime. Even many of our corporate clients only book entertainment once or twice per Anum. Live Music Management book literally thousands of shows per year. We vett all our acts. We keep record of their qualities and failings. We have our own showcase reports and customer testimonials as proof of quality.
It is important to state that there are acts playing at weddings and parties and commanding large fees which are not up to Live Music Managements standards. Some of them we have working with in our fifteen year history and been at the sharp end of their unreliability , ego problems or other issues. We do not offer these acts to you.
All Live Music Management acts meet with our high standards and we are proud of the quality of our function band roster. This alone is worth the cost of our commission but add to that the fact that you can often book a band cheaper by coming to a large agency like Live Music Management than going to the act direct (we give our acts hundreds of dates per annum and so have some bulk purchasing power.)
Further benefits of using an agency like Live Music Management for your wedding entertainment include
As one of the largest agencies in the UK Live Music Management offer 24 hour emergency cover (2 people on all at any given time) in the event of you having any problems on the day of the event etc.
Live Music Management are unparralled in this service and it is one of the reasons why we are the only wedding band agency who also have regular clients (ie not one offs) booking entertainment through us
For instance the Walkabout venues have been used over services for 15 years, Butlins holiday parks have been booking bands from us for over seven years.
Should anything go wrong we are best placed to offer you suitable replacements etc.
We hold all deposits in a client account and don’t touch them until after the show.
Your booking with us is secure and you can rest assured that you are dealing with a company chosen by industry professionals for their live music bookings (ie in November 2012 our bands were playing in 150 Marks and Spencer’s stores throughout the UK.)
Bookings are contracted by Agents Association contract and we have a rigorous system of confirmations in place etc
Why use an agency for your wedding entertainment? In short because your wedding day is a one off and you need to ensure that it is perfect Live Music Management are able to help make the wedding entertainment memorable for all the right reasons.
