Hiring a Bidvine Band

No matter what type of music you prefer, you know the draw of seeing a band perform live. In addition to the great sounding music, there's an energy to the whole experience that makes it unique. A live band can bring that same feeling to transform your next big event!

Hiring a band is a great choice for any part of your wedding. You can have them playing during the ceremony to make your vows feel cinematic. Or, have them play music to liven up your reception to turn it into a party no one will forget!

Bands can also be great entertainment for a birthday party or a corporate event. They can take centre stage and perform for your guests or liven it up by playing throughout the evening. 

Make sure to consider your guest list when you search for your band. If your guests span a wide range of ages, you'll want to find a versatile group that can handle a number of styles. A tribute band makes a great choice since they will have a number of favourites in their repertoire. Older guests may prefer the music styles of a big band, whereas a younger crowd's tastes may run to pop, rock, or country.

Ask for a list of songs the band knows to be sure they'll be playing your song. You can also ask to give them music in advance to be sure they are prepared to bring your event to life!

Musical Genres: Pop, Rock, Tribute, Big Band, Variety, Country
Type of Event: Wedding Ceremony, Wedding Reception, Birthday Party, Corporate Party
