Music Duos

Of course, when you want to entertain the guests at your wedding or at your venue, you consider live music duos. They can be a great alternative to bands due to having a full sound and not to mention the cost and flexibility as well as compact size. Light and Shade is a 'hi-tech music duo' as we perform alongside our own professionally produced custom backing tracks. In other words, we deliver the same sound of a large band but with lower costs and less floor-space required. It also ensures the music at your wedding or venue will be accurately performed and that a musician having an 'off-day' won't spoil the occasion.

Wedding Music Band Costs

Wedding Band Hire Cost

A wedding can be expensive and although many event organisers want a wedding band for the fantastic atmosphere they add to an event a major concern are the wedding band hire cost. These can and do fluctuate between hundreds to thousands of pounds and quite often it is not clear to see the additional value between the many different prices quoted sometimes by very similar acts.

So, how much does a band cost for a wedding?

Before you can get to the band cost for a wedding it is important to establish what it is you want from your event live music.

  1. Do you want to hire a duo or a large band?
  2. When do you want them to play, early in the day during the dinner or at the evening reception for example?
  3. Would you pay extra for a band to travel to your event?
  4. Are you happy paying 20% extra to book through an agency or band listing website?
  5. Do you have any special requests?
  6. How much are you prepared to pay?
