How to find good wedding musicians
Word-of-mouth recommendations can provide you with great leads. Get recommendations from local music stores. Do an internet search for the type of musician you are looking for. Ask your venue to provide you with ceremony and reception musicians that they recommend. Check with other facilities that hire musicians for their recommendations. Select a number of musicians to contact. Hear them perform live. Ask for sample demo recordings. Ask them for client references. Talk to references who can vouch that the musician has good musical skills and is reliable and responsible. Does the musician provide a free consultation to help you plan your music? Do they have a strict repertoire or are they willing to learn new songs? Do they play the style of music you are looking for? Are they willing to accompany vocalists or other instrumentalists if necessary? Will they attend your wedding rehearsal? What backup plans can they offer if they are not able to perform for your ceremony? Ask for a sample contract. Compare prices. Do they charge by the hour, by the job? Find out the total cost to you including mileage, set up fees, rehearsal, practicing with other musicians, learning new music, etc. Once you find the musician that best represents your wishes, you will probably be asked to provide a deposit and sign a contract.
