From 10 Top Tips for Booking a Wedding and Party Band: What You Need To Know by Em Peasgood, Bandleader
It is common for a band to have various requirements and I’m not referring to ‘puppies to play with backstage’ or any such silly request.
Here is a guide to our basic band requirements:
- Soft drinks to be provided at no cost throughout the event
- A meal: some bands travel for hours to perform at a gig, with the average working day of 7 – 11 hours. My band are always happy with something warm and simple to eat.
- Somewhere suitable to get changed – we are aware that this isn’t always possible.
- Adequate time to set up. We personally, require 45 minutes.
