Different Live Wedding Band Types You Can Hire For Your Big Day

by | Nov 16, 2020

For a wedding, you can have so many styles and genres to listen from! However, it’s the big day, and if your budget can hold it, why not mix more than one type of band throughout the day? Florida Music Group has you covered with several live wedding bands in Orlando. They play around Florida, nationally, and internationally as well!

Using a Live Wedding Band

If you’re going for an elegant choice and suitable for before and after the ceremony has been performed, an instrumental ensemble would be an excellent choice. String quartets are stylish, and the other popularity is using a cello, harp, and flute ensembles.

If you’re more of a jazz buff, we highly recommend our sophisticated laid back band. They play easy listening, slow jazz for the wedding breakfast or cocktail hour, and can speed up the tempo for dancing after dinner.

Similar to jazz and picking up the tempo, a fashionable choice would be the latin band. They can really add the heat to an outdoor summer wedding. Book with them to have energy for the samba, the cha cha cha, and salsa! 

Want a mix of glamor and fun? A swing band would keep your feet tapping through the wedding breakfast to get up and take to the floor. They are also appropriate for a black tie event with a 50s feel. The old favorites of Frank Sinatra or Benny Goodman will have you smiling the whole event.

Bring In Other Styles From Different Countries

If you have a Celtic theme or not, a Celtic band is perfect for a ceilidh or barn dance. It can really liven things up or a rural or outdoor setting. The lilting and lively jigs help make it a day to remember.

If you want to try something completely different, bring in the steel drum band! A Caribbean style playing various melodies like calypso, soca, bossa nova, all to make your wedding a night to remember. It’s also appropriate for cocktail hour to entertain your guests, and it’s great for dancing as well.

If you still want a Caribbean theme but no drums, we recommend the Reggae band to make it feel the sun is shining on the cloudiest days with an addictive rhythm.

Other Types of Bands

Modern bands can include pop groups, but that doesn’t mean they have to stick with modern times. If you want disco for a younger audience, you can combine hits such as the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s for a nostalgic wedding. There is a song for everyone with contemporary pop.

While it may not seem like the obvious choice, having a rock bad can bring in a different feeling. They can be light and uplifting, and choose rock songs from across the decade. If you want heavy rock, have a session in the middle of the party to shake things up!
