The VIPs Wedding Band Ireland
How long do the band play for?
Typically the band would play from 9.30-12.00, with our DJ continuing on until 2.00am. We are completely flexible though and work within each couple’s own time schedule. We have a separate sound and light engineer, and he arrives on site by 8.00pm ready to set up. The band all start arriving c. 8.30pm so if you’re ready for us early, we’ll be ready to go.
What happens after we confirm and pay deposit?
Two months before your wedding Catherine will set up a call with you to go through your whole night. She will discuss logistical arrangements i.e. how many guests (impacts the size of sound system we bring), set up times etc. and music choices. We have a chat about your first dance and whether you’d like us to play it live. We discuss DJ requests and any other specific requests you may have.
Do you run showcases?
Yes, in various locations around Dublin, very regularly. Our website and facebook page will have details.
Do we have a say in the play list?
Yes. Every wedding is unique and we like to know as much as possible about what you like. At some weddings we focus heavily on 80s/90s and modern mix, for others there could be waltz/jive and some country. The best ones though are a great mix of everything. A wedding party has a dynamic of its own and the ‘cheesy’ classics that you dread to hear usually have the opposite effect at a wedding. J
As well as Band and DJ, what other music services do you offer?
We play Church weddings and Civil Ceremonies most weekends and 90% of couples that book the band book the full day package, from Ceremony music to Pre-dinner as well as Band and DJ. We also offer DJ/Sax package – it’s amazing. Contact Catherine for details.
How much is the booking fee?
€350 – non refundable, however transferable, should you need to move your date.
