Of course, you also need to think of the night as a whole. A band is unlikely to play from when your guests arrive until one or two AM, that's the job of a wedding day DJ. They will also want to leave once they've finished and you're faced with them dismantling while your guests try to dance.
In addition, you may find a separate band and DJ jostling for space and power sockets. This situation may well lead to disagreements that you have to sort on your wedding day!
All these pitfalls (and many more!) leave you with two options to ensure a great wedding reception:
1) Book a DJ and a band, pay a fortune and keep your fingers crossed
2) Call Get Wed
For our live segments, we sing to professional backing tracks, recorded using real instruments. The advantage of this is that we can easily tailor the sound to any venue. Too loud? We can change the volume instantly - try doing that with a drum kit!
We can also set up in a far smaller area than a band would require, using just two power sockets. All our equipment is PAT tested and we carry full public liability insurance.
Get Wed provide one point of contact to ensure a seamless night of brilliant entertainment. We'll be set up before your guests arrive and will not move until the night is over. Our prices are fully inclusive - if the party should run late, there are no extra costs.
All this at a fraction of the price of a band and DJ!
Our live solo singer package consists of:
Two live 45 minute vocal sets from James McCann:
We use professional backing tracks and interact fully with your audience. Create your perfect wedding reception by choosing two of our live sets to get all your guests dancing and singing along. For more information about what we sing, visit our live music sets page.
A great disco all night:
With over 26,000 songs available and mobile broadband capability, we can download any track as we DJ! We always ask our clients for a preferred playlist before the event so we can guarantee to have everything you want to hear.
We'll be set up before your guests arrive and play great music until the party has finished. All prices are fully inclusive - if the party should run late (fingers crossed!) there are no extra costs!
An intelligent lightshow:
Using a combination of theatre and disco lighting, we create a fantastic atmosphere for your guests to dance in. We also include fog (venue permitting) to enhance the lights and give a real disco feel.
One point of contact:
From booking to performance, you'll only have to deal with one person - far easier than haggling with a band and separate DJ. We'll liase with the venue to arrange set up times and requirements and meet with you to discuss your song choice and requests.
Peace of mind:
All our equipment is PAT tested and we have backup systems available if needed. We carry public liability insurance (required by most venues) up to the value of £2million. We have a wealth of entertainment experience to ensure your event runs smoothly and successfully.
If you have something in mind that we haven't mentioned, get in touch! We've created unique entertainment for theatres, holiday parks, hotels, cruise ships and wedding receptions and are confident we can provide just what you need!
