You’ve decided you want a live band for your wedding reception; the next thing to do is find a wedding band in Denver with the right EXPERIENCE.
You’ve probably experienced this yourself first hand at a wedding that you have attended, great music REALLY makes a difference and nothing compares to LIVE music!
Experienced Band + Great Music + Dancing Guests = Great Wedding Reception!
When looking for a live band for your wedding reception be sure to ask the band you are interviewing these questions:
1) Do You Play Together Regularly?
In other words, is the band a REAL band that has the same band members all the time, or do different people show up depending on the event and the date? If that’s the case WATCH OUT, it’s not really a band, it’s a “pick-up” band who shows up at your wedding reception to play music. This is never an ideal situation. The members of Deja Blu have been playing together for years. We practice together regularly and we’re always adding new songs to our playlist. What you see here at our website is what you get!
2) How Long Have You Played Together?
Again, it’s the EXPERIENCE thing. Don’t risk hiring a wedding band in Denver that doesn’t play together very often or hasn’t played together recently. The members of Deja Blu are all PROFESSIONAL musicians and we have played together for years – it makes a huge difference.
3) Have You Played at MY Wedding Reception Venue Before?
Having EXPERIENCE performing at your particular wedding reception venue is more important than you might think. There are little things and details that are particular to every event venue and it’s always better to know about them beforehand. Deja Blu is one of the most popular wedding bands in Denver. We know these venues and the venue coordinators. The band has performed extensively throughout Colorado, including Vail, Aspen, Beaver Creek, Telluride, and Breckenridge Colorado. We also play in New Mexico and Wyoming! Like I’ve always said: “Have band, will travel!”
4) How Do We Select the Music You Will Play?
The wedding band you choose for your wedding reception should be willing to work with you closely and find out what you like as far as music. Most brides and grooms chose a variety of music from different genres that will appeal to all of their guests. And of course you have your own favorites too, right? Having a wide variety of song choices is a very important consideration when hiring a wedding band. Follow this link to take a look at our song list, or follow this link to watch out videos.
5) How Can You Make Sure People Will Dance and Have a Great Time?
This is DEFINITELY an experience thing! Knowing how to “read the crowd” is the #1 factor related to getting your guests on the dance floor and having a great time! I can watch the dance floor and know what they want to hear next. PLUS! We keep our set list up by our sound man. You guests are welcome to take a look at the over 240 songs we have on our song list and let us know what they want to hear!
