A live band can be a big part of your big day in Boston. How can you possibly make a choice when there are so many things to think about? No worries! It doesn’t have to be a source of anxiety for you. If you have been keeping up with our blogs, you know we always strive to give you the best advice on talent booking. Today, we’ll cover five ways to take the pressure off when it comes to finding the right act for your event.

Know what you want

This may sound a bit vague but you have to start with the basics. Think about what type of music you like, how many musicians you may want and think about what kind of show you’d like the band to put on. Write everything down. This way, when it comes to narrowing down your options, you have a better idea of what will fit your vision.

Ask the venue

Not sure where to start or what will work for the venue you chose? Ask what has worked there in the past and what the venue manager would recommend to you. You might even end up with a list of bands that have played at that venue in the past that you can choose from if you aren’t sure where to look.

Make a budget

After you get an idea of how much a live band will cost, create a budget. Setting a financial cut off point will help you break through a lot of the noise and be able to find an easier path. Once your budget is clear and set in stone, your options tend to fall into place.

Trust your gut

On this blog, we talk a lot about considering your guests when you book a live band. We encourage you to book entertainment that everyone can enjoy. That said, don’t stress too much about this. Ultimately, the choice is yours and it is about what you want. If a certain band stands out to you, you should go ahead and book them. It’s important that you don’t over analyze too much. If you do so, you’ll never make a choice.
