‘Five reasons to book a premium wedding band with Tailored Entertainment’
Finding premium wedding entertainment can be a bit of a minefield. There’s so many options out there, so much to choose from, that it’s easy to feel totally lost in it all. Where do you even begin, right? It’s a concern we hear from a lot of our clients. And it’s something that we at Tailored Entertainment can absolutely help with.
Here at Tailored Entertainment, we’ve spent the last ten years cultivating a reputation for incredible, high-end wedding entertainment, exclusively representing some of the most popular function acts in the country. All our acts are handpicked by our team of industry professionals who boast decades of experience in the music industry, meaning our bands are some of the very best you’re likely to find.
But is a premium wedding band really worth the expense? We certainly think so! And we’ve put together a few reasons why…
1. Don’t waste your money!
There’s no getting around it; weddings are an expensive venture. After the financial outlay of venues, dresses, caterers and a hundred other bits and pieces, it’s tempting to try and save a bit of money on the evening entertainment. However, if you spend more than five minutes searching for wedding bands online, you quickly learn that there’s a lot of bang average acts out there. And with an average act comes average musicians, low-quality equipment, and often a low-quality attitude to your wedding day.
At Tailored Entertainment, we expect the same level of quality from our bands as you’d see from any signed, touring artist (and many of our musicians perform with signed, touring artists on a regular basis!). The same goes for our equipment – all our sound and lighting gear is top of the line, identical to any you’d find in a top level concert venue. And crucially, all of our acts carry the necessary PAT testing and Public Liability Insurance that many venues will now insist upon. This exacting level of quality is only found in a premium wedding band.
2. Premium agencies have a band to suit everyone
Are you planning a festival themed summer wedding? Or maybe a glitzy, vintage style reception? Perhaps you love retro 90’s pop, or pop punk and college rock? Whatever you want from your wedding day, however specific, we’ll have a band to suit your exact needs. From the large-scale spectacle of a dance anthems band like the amazing LFX, to the Motown energy of OJ’s Soul Band, there’s something for everyone. We even have acts perfect for venues with strict sound restrictions, with a host of stripped back live lounge acts that carry the punch of a full band without upsetting the neighbours!
3. A bespoke, personal service – from the first enquiry to your wedding day
Many wedding entertainment agencies are based purely online – you book the act through a website, with no contact with either the band or the agency, leaving you in the dark if you have any questions or last-minute amendments to your booking.
At Tailored, we do things a bit differently. We have an office team of dedicated industry experts, all of whom are musicians themselves, who will walk you through your booking and be on hand to answer any questions from your first enquiry, all the way to your big day. This might seem like a small point, but it makes a huge difference for many of our clients!
4. Full-day entertainment packages
One of the advantages of booking through a premium agency is that we can help you create a bespoke wedding entertainment package that will keep your guests enthralled through every step of your day. We offer amazing ceremony acts, perfect for bringing an air of romance and personality to your marriage. We have amazing roaming bands to keep your guests entertained at the drinks reception, wandering amongst your guests and playing songs right to them. We have evening headliners to pack the dance floor, and to close the night we can offer an awesome contemporary DJ to keep you going till the early hours.

5. Our previous client’s recommendations!
Finally, there’s no better way of highlighting the difference that premium wedding entertainment makes than through the words of our clients. We’re delighted to have received hundreds of 5-star reviews via Facebook . Plus, we have a host of individual testimonials from happy couples who couldn’t wait to tell us how much they loved their wedding band. Here’s two from this week! –
‘Festival Nights were fantastic evening entertainment and all our guests raved about them. They did 2 brilliant 1 hr sets – both with distinct themes and songs that everyone loved (and followed our set lists). They helped fill the dance floor all night and really helped with the atmosphere and celebrations. Would highly recommend to anyone else too.’

‘8-Ball Band were absolutely fantastic on our wedding day on 11/08/18. We couldn’t have asked for a better band. They were excellent, vibrant, energetic, polite and very friendly. We had so many kind words from other guests who absolutely loved them too. Thank you also to Tailored Entertainment who were fantastic at communicating back and forth, answering my many questions before the event!’
