What Questions to Ask your Wedding Band before Booking?

What to Ask Your Wedding Band before Booking-Wedding Band Costs


Below is a List of Questions that we think are important Questions to ask of Your Potential Wedding Band. They may seem quite obvious but nevertheless never assume that because one Wedding Band ticks the boxes that all Wedding Bands will. For example some Wedding Bands charge an additional fee for travel, while some have a flat fee. Some Wedding Bands operate a business model that allows The Band to play in several different venues with differing personell under the same Business name. While others such as Members of The Wedding Band Association have a policy whereby of One Band Per Wedding.

So your wedding plans are well under way and you have even chosen what type of entertainment you want for your wedding evening reception with the help of our website, www.EntertainersWorldwide.com of course!  Although we have previously covered an article “Hiring a Wedding Band – Tips, Hints and How to Book”, we thought it would be very useful for us to provide a list of questions you really should be asking a wedding band before you finally go ahead and put down that deposit!  So if you are about to get in touch with one of the wedding bands on our entertainment directory, make sure you ask them the following questions…

Keep the following questions as a handy guide…


Now this question, although self-explanatory is probably the most important question to ask a wedding band, because even if you absolutely love their performances, if they are busy on the date of your wedding, you’re going to need to look elsewhere.  Wedding bands get booked up years in advance, so we highly recommend planning your wedding entertainment way in advance!


Once you have established that the wedding band of your dreams is available to perform at your wedding, it is important to establish how long they are prepared to perform for.  Some bands will happily play to your guests for a number of hours, but unless you ask a band this question, you won’t know when they are happy to set-up, how long they will play for and when they will start packing away.  The last thing you want is for your guests to be up on the dancefloor and your wedding band closing shop half way through the evening!


This may seem like a very boring question to ask, but it is of utmost importance!  Always make sure that any wedding band you are booking has the right insurances to perform at venues, including public limited liability in case of any accidents.  This generally doesn’t cost much for a band to set up, but really shows how professional they are if they have the right policies in place.

Experience is key in the world of entertainment, so when you are looking for a wedding band you want to make sure they have experience in performing at weddings and talking with guests.  Most wedding bands will be happy to show you previous customer testimonials from happy clients to show how talented they are and to secure your booking.  Be wary of any wedding bands who won’t show you their feedback.


You’ve got the perfect first-dance song in your mind for your big day, but there is no point in booking a wedding band if they cannot perform it!  Many wedding bands have a long list of tracks they can perform which is also known as their repertoire.  If there is a song that you really want performed but isn’t on their list, simply ask them if they can learn it before your big day.  This may incur additional fees, but you need to make sure that you have the perfect music to dance the night away.


Some wedding bands will allow you to watch them perform at gigs or even other weddings so if you really want to make sure they are the perfect fit for your wedding, ask if you can watch them perform.  This is one of the best ways to gauge their experience and if you like their musical style.  Most wedding bands will play small gigs locally to showcase their work so if you get the chance, attend and listen to their performance.  Some wedding bands will only offer you audio samples of their work, so don’t worry if a live performance isn’t an option.


This may seem like a really strange question to ask a wedding band, but you want to make sure that if your wedding is a sophisticated affair, that your band dress accordingly too.  If you wish for a certain dress code, most wedding bands will comply with this.  Generally, wedding bands will offer simple options, such as black shirts and trousers, or dresses for the ladies.

Every wedding band needs a backup plan in case any of the members are poorly on the date of your wedding.  Most musicians have a big network of friends who are also in the music business, so the likelihood is that the musician who is ill will be replaced, short-notice.  It is best to check what a wedding band’s policy is on sickness and if they have a contingency plan so that you still get your wedding entertainment!


It is important to find out how much space a wedding band will need to set-up ready for their performance, since the last thing you want during your wedding breakfast is for musicians to be lugging their equipment through the room.  Always plan a backdoor entrance and get them to set up a little in advance of your evening reception.  Even if they charge more for this, it’s worth it to have a hassle-free transition from wedding breakfast, to evening reception.


Always find out if your wedding band has backup instruments, such as guitars or other equipment in case of malfunction.  It is always good to have a back-up plan so that your wedding entertainment isn’t ruined!


Sometimes, guests attending a wedding can act rather shy as many are unfamiliar with some of the other guests also attending.  Why not ask if your wedding band will talk to the crowd and get them up dancing?  A good wedding band will be very proficient in this skill but it’s always worth checking – again this may be dependent on their experience.


Again, this is a very obvious question, but there are many factors that will alter the cost of hiring a wedding band.  If you need to book a band to perform for an extended period of time, this may bump up the costs, as will additional travelling to and from your wedding venue.  Although it might seem awkward, you really need to know how much a wedding band will quote you to see if it is within your wedding budget, and to see if you are getting a fair price.


After the money talk has been completed and you are happy with the quotation that they have supplied, always ask for it in writing.  Another important money-related question is how much of a deposit they require for your wedding.  For example, some performers will charge 50% deposit to secure your date, others will charge more.  Check if this is refundable the unfortunate event that your wedding has to be postponed or canceled too as this is generally not the case.  Always get a receipt for any payments or deposits made to a wedding band.

The Jukebox Kings Wedding Band Ireland Guarantee

We Guarantee that the Band you book is the Band that appears on your Wedding Day. Other Wedding Bands may offer you a choice of lead singer with no guarantee that the band you saw perform at the showcase will be the band that performs at your Wedding.  The Jukebox Kings believe that the line up of a band should be consistent and confirmed at the time of booking.  A band is the sum of all parts, not just one individual. The most successful bands of all time have survived and triumphed when all members have had an equal part to play in their success. Stability in any band is vital no less so with a Wedding Band. However if the Band you are booking performs under the same name, in various venues, on the same night, at the same time and you have been advised that this will not compromise the quality of the band then who are we to say that you are being misled.

Always Live

Not all bands are equal and no two Weddings or Wedding couples are the same. We recognise and appreciate that every Wedding couple’s musical tastes differ and vary, The Jukebox Kings, however, believe that there is nothing better than a Live Wedding Band. You will find no lip syncing or backing tracks with us. While other bands may choose to take this path, The Jukebox Kings Wedding Band believe that a live band is the ultimate in entertainment. We recommend that one of the questions that you ask your Wedding Band is, “Can you back singers and play Live? If they can not answer yes to both questions then it is unlikely that they are capable of playing live without the aid of backing tracks. However, this may not be a concern of yours when booking a Wedding Band. It is important that you are aware of this so that you can make an informed choice.

Top 10 Wedding Bands In Ireland to Book for your Wedding

Top 10 Wedding Bands in Ireland

Wedding Band Reviews Ireland

Searching for the Top 10 Wedding Bands in Ireland and hoping to find a definitive list of the Top 10 Wedding Bands will yield varying and misleading results. There are various sites and search terms such as Best Wedding Bands Ireland 2016/2017/2018 and Wedding Bands Ireland One Fab Day advising the researcher that they promote the Top 10 Wedding Bands in Ireland.

Search also for Wedding Band Prices and Best Wedding Bands Ireland boards .ie or Wedding Bands Dublin to see the host of articles written on the subject. However, it is, important to realize that this information is unsupported and unsubstantiated.

There is no official data to confirm this claim. Bride and grooms will undoubtedly look to book the Best Wedding Band that they can find based on their Budget but how can they wade through the pages on Google of Wedding bands all claiming to be one of the Top 10 Wedding Bands in Ireland including our very own Jukebox Kings Band.

 Top 10 Wedding Bands in Ireland.

The truth is, unfortunately, there is no definitive answer. Choosing the Best Wedding Bands is subjective just like choosing the ingredients for your wedding cake. Some people like chocolate biscuit cake others traditional fruit cake. Just as you will choose your menu with your Hotel based on Budget and suitability for your guests you should also choose your Wedding Band.

Think objectively, when choosing your menu you will likely consider a vegetarian option and something for older guests. You will not choose the menu based purely on the food that you yourself like to eat. You are also not likely to settle for chicken and chips as you want to treat your guests to a memorable feast. From the same perspective, you should also choose your Band knowing that they will treat all of your guests to a variety of musical dishes, catering for all of your guest’s various tastes.

A great Band should include in their repertoire Country, Jives, Waltzes, Funk, Disco and Hits of Today. I know you possibly may not like Country music, but if you don’t like potatoes is that any reason to exclude them from the meal menu?


Wedding Band Awards

Wedding Band Awards such as “Weddings Online Best Wedding Band” are yet another misleading benchmark for Wedding Bands and have little or no relevance to the Bands position relative to any other. Don’t get me wrong very often the quality of the Band that wins is excellent. However are the unsuspecting public aware that The Band has paid and nominated themselves in the first instance in the Best Wedding Band Category? Without paying and nominating themselves no Band can be considered by the Judging panel.

There are a great many Wedding Bands who do not advertise with this company and may never nominate themselves in the category Best Wedding Band Weddings Online and yet may actually be the Best Wedding Band in Ireland we may never know. Until Wedding Websites who make money from these awards actually find a more equitable and inclusive way of creating an award system these “Awards” will remain meaningless.

Wedding Band Lineups

A Wedding Band is usually made up of a number of regular musicians, possibly friends or a team. They work closely together and play music with an energy and dynamic that transfers to the audience. Mostly these Bands are made up of professional Wedding entertainers of a very high quality that have worked at the highest level in the Irish and international entertainment business.

One important factor that should be a concern and key point for Bride and Grooms booking a Wedding Band is the lineup.

  • Is the band made up of the same members night after night?
  • Is the line up they book likely to be different on your Wedding Day?

Bands that work with the same lineup, have rehearsed and played together and built up a dynamic that will transfer into a professional and polished performance. This will ensure your Wedding Nights entertainment is fantastic. There are some business models who offer an option of choosing the Lead singer only with all other musicians coming together on the night. This particular business model provides many Bands, operating on the same night, in different venues, under the same name. They invest heavily in branding, marketing, and promotion. Their success is admirable and often copied. However often the standard of the Band that arrives for your wedding may not be the same that you witnessed at the Showcase event.

If this is the option that you choose and you have all the facts to make an informed choice then, you have decided to book an ensemble rather than a Band. If this is your choice it is not for me to contradict or question your wisdom. Before you decide perhaps consider what the Beatles once said (Paraphrase) ” If you rehearse together 7 Days a week you get good at rehearsing, if you play live 7 days a week you get good at playing live”  So consider the quality of a Band that you book that has neither rehearsed or played live together.

The Jukebox Kings Wedding Band are together for 10 years. We have all worked as Wedding Entertainers for a great many years. Our Lineup is made up of the same members night after night, only subject to change in the unlikely event of illness or circumstances outside of our control.

Wedding Band Recommendations

The Wedding Band community is quite small and many of the acts and musicians have worked together on various projects over the years. Many of the Top Bands have formed from incarnations of other Wedding Bands. The quality of many of the Bands is exceptional. The Work ethic and desire to create a fantastic experience for Bride and Grooms is fantastic. Good news for all you people getting married the future is bright. It is difficult to single out one or two acts for a recommendation with so many quality acts available.

My opinion for what its worth is book an experienced established act regardless of their style. Much as you trust the apprentice hairdresser at blow drying your hair you will want the head stylist to style your hair on the day. So should it be with your Wedding Band?

Biting the Bullet in the event that The Jukebox Kings are busy for your Wedding Day we can highly recommend.

Wedding Bands Ireland Prices

Wedding Band Costs

Wedding Bands Ireland Prices, what am I paying for?

Wedding Band prices can vary and are a hot topic. Costs for a Live Wedding Band are a constant source of debate.  Are Wedding Bands in Ireland charging excessively for their services?  What is the Average Wedding cost in 2017-2018-2019 for Wedding BandsWhere can I find a Wedding Band Price List to compare?  Can I find cheaper Wedding Bands in Dublin or outside the capital?

Do you know that Wedding Bands in Ireland regularly travel on average 3-6 hours to and from engagements? Insurance costs for vehicles are many multiples of the average insurance premiums for other professions. Musician’s pay premiums many multiples of the insurance premium of say a plumber or carpenter. Musicians are finding it harder to receive insurance cover as their profession is deemed unsafe. Late night travelling and major miles account for this.

Most couples think that when hiring a Wedding Band that they are merely paying for the performance time. But most Wedding Bands set out and set up early on the given day and return home in the late hours of the morning. Despite what people might think the band doesn’t just magically appear for 3 hours and then magically disappear.


Bands perform a Showcase free of charge to the couple and family in advance in order to secure the booking. While the Showcase was F.O.C to the invited couples it would have come at a cost both financially and time wise to the Musicians. Bands will also spend time rehearsing a first dance or special requests in the lead up to the couple’s Wedding.

Musicians in Ireland rarely if ever request additional travel, fee’s meal or accommodation costs. The fee they charge is almost always inclusive and can vary from around €1,500 to €2,500 on average or as much as €3,500 depending on the Band Size.

The Jukebox Kings Wedding Band never charge additional fees for Travel, meals or accommodation. Our fee is fully inclusive.

The Jukebox Kings Dublin, Ireland

Compare Irish prices to Wedding Bands in America. Why not look at the costs provided below from an American 4-piece Band? I have removed the Bands name, but the details are 100% genuine.

Packages and Pricing

XXXXXXXXX offers several entertainment packages: FULL PACKAGE: Recommended for dance events!!! 4-piece classic rock & roll/country band PLUS a sound and light technician. Enhanced sound system, subwoofers, effects, multi-coloured stage lighting. Amplified acoustic guitar, electric guitars, bass guitar, drummer and amplified vocals.

ENHANCED PACKAGE: For a special treat, we can add three-time Guitarist of the Year, XXXXXXXXXX to the band, for a super rockin’ show. This guy is a scorching guitarist, who can rock with the best of them, and when he and Trevor trade licks, the stage is on fire! Check out his amazing guitar work on our original project songs featured on the “Originals” page of this website! SMALL PACKAGE: Smaller, indoor venues, 30 – 60 guests. Amplified acoustic guitar, electric guitars, bass guitar, drummer and amplified vocals. 4-piece classic rock & roll / country band. Small sound system, without subwoofers, effects, sound/light technician, or multi-coloured stage lighting.

PRICES range from $2,450 – $4,250 depending upon sound system package, venue location and size, length of engagement, and number of guests. Prices apply to jobs within the XXXXXXXXXX city limits. Room, board and travel costs will be added to out of town engagements.  Prices for similar events may vary, depending upon the demand for a given date, venue challenges, and other factors.

What are the differences in Bands?

We know looking through the long list of Bands can be Daunting. There are 3-piece, 4-piece, 5-piece Bands and upwards.  Male Vocalists, Female Vocalists and some that offer both. Bands with Brass and some that can add it to their line-up. Then, there are fully live bands and some that use backing tracks to enhance their sound.

The difference between very many Wedding Bands is quite small. Most Bands on the Irish Wedding Scene perform at a very high and professional standard. Gone are the days when touring pub bands did a” Nixer” Wedding for a Friend.

Irish Wedding bands are now, mostly Full-time Musicians. They are Tax compliant, well-rehearsed, professionally groomed and completely up to date with Wedding Trends. The music set list that they offer will most likely also be similar.


Wedding band prices don’t vary widely. Set your Budget based on affordability and Venue. If you can’t afford a 7-piece band or your Venue won’t fit them, then don’t book them. Generally, Bands can vary their line up to suit different venues. Bands that are working closer to home have lower costs. This is all common sense stuff.  If you wanted an electrician to carry out some work at your home, you would look for someone relatively local. You wouldn’t look for someone several counties away. if you did you would expect to pay a premium for their time and travel. Pick up the phone and chat, we are always glad to help.

See the band in advance

If possible, try to see your Band play in advance. Most bands offer Showcase events. Make sure the band that you are seeing are the same band that will play on the night. If you are looking living in Dublin then you will have a wider choice of Showcase events to choose. However there are many Bands that provide these outside of the capital.  Be prepared to travel a little further.

Live versus (Dead)Backing Tracks.

Some Bands play live, some bands use backing tracks and mime. Some bands even combine the two. Ask the band the question if it matters to you, it may not. There are some Bands that prefer to concentrate on performance rather than musicianship. Although, if you are paying for a Band, it’s likely you expect them to be musicians that play real instruments.

Can your Band play different styles of music?

Wedding Bands try to facilitate everyone at a Wedding. Waltzes, Country, Swing, Disco, Pop and Rock are some of the styles covered in one night.  As mentioned, Bands are professional and well-rehearsed in adapting to different requests.

Bands will cover different genres respectably. I recall hearing a strory from a “Trad  Musician” friend of mine who was booked to play at a Wedding. The Bride requested them to play some Disco tunes and was surprised  that they only played “Trad Music” on the night.  Choose a band that can diversify. Make sure you know what to expect and the limitations of the Band. All musicians no matter how good have musical limits.

Does Price determine performance?

Most Bands play for at least 2 hours some for 3, The average performance time is 2.5 hours. Don’t let the speeches eat into the play time. Playtime just like price is usually up for negotiation. There are only so many hours available to entertain once the meal is over.

No Rest for the wicked as Ireland’s Most in Demand  Wedding Band The Jukebox Kings rolled into Limerick. Bringing our brand of Wedding Entertainment to The Dunravin Arms Hotel Last Night. The Guests were suitably styled in Black tie Dress ( the Band also wore Black tie.)

As always we got a great reception from Limerick’s finest socialites. From the first note until the very last the band rocked, rolled, jazzed and grooved. The crowd responded with some slick moves and danced in appreciation.

First Dance

John and Helen the new Mr and Mrs Davidson chose “All of Me” as their first Dance song. A popular choice with couples, we have played it at about 3-4 Wedding this year. it was great to see and hear their friends and family sing along with us.

John and Helen were delighted with the entertainment from The Jukebox Kings Wedding Band. We had a little chat at the end of the night to review everything. Helen advised us that when it came to booking a Wedding Band there really was no alternative to The Jukebox Kings Wedding Band. A Friend of Helen’s had recommended us and she was thrilled with the outcome. Once she had seen us play live there was no need to look elsewhere and she booked immediately. We have been promised a full review from Helen and John on their return to Ireland. We really hope you both have a great time and send us a postcard to brighten up our winter days back here in frosty Ireland.

Booking Wedding Bands

Booking Your Band from Online Directory sites such as Weddings Online is growing in popularity. Internet review sites specialise in offering Bride and Grooms all of the services they require for their Big Day under one roof.  More and more of these wedding supplier platforms are appearing such as WeddingsOnline  One Fab Day and Mrs 2Be . But what purpose do they serve? Are they really offering Bride and Grooms a special service, or are they really just a ruse for charging suppliers advertising fees?

Wedding Supplier Directories

While they may offer a one stop shop for Bride and Grooms looking to view all the services required for their big day, they also charge a hefty fee to suppliers to advertise with them. Although it is true to say that suppliers have an option to choose to advertise with them or not, there is pressure to compete with other suppliers or lose out on business. Ultimately it is the Bride and Groom who pay the additional advertising costs as Bands will factor the charge into their fee. It is most likely that the fee for a Band with a hefty advertising budget is charging a greater fee than those not. Top tier advertising with advertisers can cost several thousands of euro. If a Band is advertising on several of these sites, (which many are) you can work out the math to consider the likely increase in the fee needed to cover the cost alone.
Brides Book on Wedding Directories

Weddings Online Advertising or direct Promotion?

A Wedding Band has to promote itself and have an “online” shop window these days. In bygone years Wedding bands also played Pub venues allowing couples to view their performance. With the departure of the traditional Pub culture, fewer venues facilitate Live music. The Traditional cover band no longer has the facility to invite couples to their “regular” live venue. The alternative is to promote the Band through a Website and to encourage prospective Bride and Grooms to a Showcase event. That is why Wedding Bands make such efforts to advertise on social media and Google ad-words and inevitably Wedding platforms.  Advertising on such other platforms allows Bands and Wedding Suppliers to advertise to the Wedding market. The cost, however, can be quite high with costs in the thousands. Featuring on several of these sites can prove quite costly and Bride and Grooms only get to view the profiles of Bands willing to pay for the advertising.  We allow our testimonials and reviews from satisfied customers to speak on our behalf. We promote our Band via our website and through our social media pages. Many of our bookings come from recommendations from Bride and Grooms and guests who have attended Weddings that we have previously entertained at. Testimonials and reviews are a great way of hearing from real people how they rate not only our band’s performance but also our service quality. A Review such as this one https://www.weddingsonline.ie/discussion/the-jukebox-kings-reviews-t374123-10.html can, of course, add a bounce to our inquiries. Sometimes the performance is the only thing people consider, we value the performance but also the service, attention to detail and customer service too!

Direct Advertising

The Jukebox Kings control our own advertising directly through our Website and social media. This allows us to keep our costs to a minimum and to ensure our fees are as competitive as possible. Passing on the benefit to Bride and Grooms.

Ryan Tubridy meets Jukebox King Lead singer Derec !

Ever wondered what happens when two Kings Meet? Well last Friday night we had the answer to this when there was a meeting of two Kings. King of the Chat show, Late Late host Ryan Tubridy and Jukebox Kings frontman Derec came face to face following the show. We think they measured up quite well too!. Toe to Toe in height and in the style stakes there was little to separate our Two Kings.
