    Is anyone having a live band instead of or as well as a DJ? It's the one thing my h2b has his heart set on but I couldn't believe how much they are. Seem to average around £1.5k for the evening and typically the one I like is about £2k lol.

    Has anyone been to a wedding with a live band? Was it a good atmosphere?

    That's what I was thinking, so long as the band are good obviously : )

    I have a lot of friends in bands, but most are metal and so I don't think that would go down so well at a wedding lol. How much is your band costing if you don't mind me asking?

    Hi Neen I work in a bar and have known the band for over 7 years so we r getting really good price u should try social clubs and stuff for bands as usually they have different ones on every week and usually they are under 1000 for weddings. Where r u from? x

    Sunny Essex. That's a good idea actually as there are loads of pubs locally that have regular live bands. So far I have just been looking at the entertainment brokers and so I guess they would more expensive as the website will take a cut from the band for advertising : )
    Thanks x

    hi neem i am havin a 7 peice band,but 1 thing that may be a prob is the distance.cos they are from yorkshire an i noticed you are from essex.any way i think they are charging us £300 but not 100 % on that cos my h2b has sorted that out.(they may charge more to come to you if they travel that far to cover fuel cost)if you want me to give you there number just let me know.an i'll get it from hubby2b.they do have a website but was havin probs with it last time i knew,but i have seen them an they are good they sing alsorts,everything across the board. xx
