10 Things Your Wedding Band Wants You to Think About

Wedding band guitarist

Indisputable fact: planning a wedding is stressful. Whether you have someone to help you or not, things get hectic. In the midst of all this it’s easy to overlook a few things or not consider all of the angles.

Thankfully, entertainment is the easy part, right? Find a wedding band, DJ or an act that you like and book them. Job done.

While that may well be the extent of your involvement, it’s now over to the musicians to put together an unforgettable night. Now this is pretty stressful too! Naturally, we’re not comparing this to the stress of wedding planning, but everyone is after the same result and there are some simple things you can consider to help ensure a smooth and enjoyable event for everyone.

As such, here are 10 things that your wedding band wants you to think about…

1. Set Up Times

One of the most common problems musicians encounter is not being left enough time to set up their equipment. Obviously, the amount of set up time required is going to vary depending on the act. For example, a solo acoustic guitarist will need less time to set up than a nine-piece soul band. But remember that your wedding band may be travelling with thousands of pounds worth of pretty heavy and bulky equipment. It will usually fill an entire van and has got to be unloaded and set up safely in the allocated space.

Therefore, always liaise with your band in advance to ensure they get enough time to set up safely and have a convenient area to unload their equipment. On average, a four-piece wedding band will require between one and a half to two hours to set up and around an hour to pack down, depending upon the distance equipment has to be carried.

How did Michelle Dalton Harp get started and how long have you been going?

I started playing the harp aged seven, taking lessons from my grandmother who had started playing aged four and performing at the age of 6. She studied in California and went on to play for the movie company MGM Grand. Later she moved to Alaska where she and my grandfather founded the Anchorage Symphony Orchestra with a few other musicians.

I grew up in Alaska, where there are more harpists than you probably think! I grew up playing with the Junior and Youth Symphony Orchestras, then became principal harpist for the Anchorage Opera and Symphony. From the age of 10 I performed at corporate events, Christmas parties and many, many weddings.
