Wedding Band Guildford

Beats Working at Weddings...

Beats Working at Weddings
When you book Beats Working for your wedding day, you can rest assured not only that you and your guests will enjoy a fantastic evening of quality music, but also that the band will arrive promptly as agreed, setup quickly and professionally, and be ready to play when your guests are ready to dance. Your music is in very safe hands.

The band has a vast amount of experience playing at weddings, and will engineer everything we do so that your day proceeds smoothly. We have played in marquees, in stately homes and on indoor and outdoor stages of many different shapes and sizes.

Here's a summary of the things we do for our wedding clients.

Arrival and Set-up

For most weddings, the band will arrive before your evening guests and set-up as the venue staff turn around the room after the wedding breakfast. However if it would be more practical, for a small additional fee, we can arrange an early set-up in the morning / afternoon on the day of the wedding. The band normally need 45 minutes to get ready and soundcheck.

First Dance

We are happy to learn and perform a first dance of your choice, adding a personal touch to your evening. In rare circumstances where your requested song does not suit our instrumentation, we are happy to provide playback of the original recording through our PA.

Set List / Playing Order

The set lists and running order will have been thought about, and carefully chosen to provide music that really flows together well for your guests to enjoy as they celebrate your big day. We will warm them up gently after the first dance, and soon have everyone on the dance floor. We pride ourselves on our ability to get everyone up and dancing and to keep them there as long as possible.

DJ & Background Music

To cover breaks between playing, you may require some pre-recorded music. We can provide this as part of our standard package and the songs that playback can be of our own wide selection, or provided by you. We can accept interval music on CD, memory stick, or MP3 player, or you can just lend us your pre-stocked i-pod on the night, which we can plug into our PA. We can use any device that outputs using stereo minijack, RCA (phono) plugs, or standard 1/4" jacks. If you require the specialist services of an actual DJ to cover breaks in live music, please ask us, and we will be happy to quote for, and arrange for a DJ to arrive with us. Alternatively, you are welcome to book your own DJ services independently of the band.
