The right music is designed to enhance any occasion, but with weddings this is perhaps more important than at any other time. It sets the mood, it whips the crowd into party revelers, it enhances the ambiance, and it is memorable. Although there are many options, many agree there is nothing quite like the live performance of wedding musicians to turn a great day into one that is talked about for years to come.
There is now stereo equipment with speakers that can sound almost real, but by the time someone agrees to run it and the music is collected the result is less than desirable. DJs are more popular and they provide the equipment and music selection preferred, but can be expensive with less than quality results in some cases. For those who really want something special, nothing beats the sound of a live band that can react and respond immediately to the needs of party-goers and cost is often equivalent to that of a good DJ. The question then becomes what kind of band or musicians to hire that will leave guests in awe and remembering the event for some time to come.
For those who really want to “kick it up a notch” and are planning a Florida wedding, there are many choices, but one new option is hiring a steel drum band like Reel Ting. For those unfamiliar with this type of music, it brings the sounds of the Caribbean to life with a Reggae sound that delivers the music of the islands into any party space and much more. And, with its resonance, feet can’t quit moving.
Many wedding musicians, like Reel Ting, are not limited to genre when it comes to music. Classical music played on steel drums provides a twist on the original composition that is not only unique, but produces lovely, melodious music that is especially unique. When the party kicks into high gear, however, they are more than ready to enliven the party with a beat that will ensure party-goers never want to stop. With the options provided by steel drum bands, feeling like one is on a tropical isle can be experienced regardless of where the event is held.
As with hiring any vendor, experience can make a difference and it’s always important to check references. If at all possible, watching them perform will also ensure a person knows exactly what they’ll be getting and many will check with current clients in order to get permission for a prospective client to see them perform live. For instance, with a live band like Real Ting who has 10 years of experience and hundreds of references, one can be assured that the band they hire will produce the type of music that will make their day one they will never forget.
During a wedding, either local or destination, money needs to be prioritized. Since the music can make or break a wedding it should be at the top of any list. One of the newer options in Florida is steel drum bands, like Reel Ting, who can play many forms of music depending on the wedding theme and desires of the couple. Whether classical, Bob Marley, or a mixture of tunes, the band selected needs to ensure that the wedding ceremony and party following is one that will be remembered for a lifetime as the best day of the newlyweds life.
