Hi ladies! Could I check if any of you have hired/are hiring a live band for your wedding banquet? I'm having difficulty searching within the forums for answers! How was your experience with hiring a live band? I'm afraid it maybe too noisy during the dinner.

Thanks! :D

I've been to wedding with live band.. It's a lovely complement to a perfect wedding if u have the budget for it.. whether it will be noisy or not depends on the venue and also the number of pieces u r intending to have.. Check with the banquet mgr and also speak to the band u r keen on for more advise? Generally, I think string instruments will be nice :) some venue have piano which u can use I think :)

Hi,
I am Btb next year 2014 and I have just hired a live band for my wedding. I have been to couples of bridal showcase where they invited the live band to perform. I personally found it really give the nice romantic atmosphere for the wedding. I think the choices of your singer, songs and how big is your venue will play a part to the outcome.

There are some very noisy with the choice of their song. ;)

Hi diliim17,
I engaged White Ribbon Live Music. I got a special promotion as we met them in one of a bridal show so basically my pakacge is as follow :

1) We received a $100 off + the 20 mins complimentary performance
2) 3 pieces band x 2 sets of 45 mins = $1,200
3) Full Sound System = $350 (we took this additional caused sometimes the sound system provide by the hotel may not be good for live band outcome)
4) 1x Emcee = $150 (We also thinking to get our performer to act as our Emcee)

Total price is $1,700/-

They have several performer you can choose from if you like and you can find out about their singing or informatio at http://whiteribbon.sg/

Hope this helps :)

Hi everyone. For those of you who have hired live band, did you need to provide dinner for the performers? As a guide, what kind of meal arrangements did you provide? Thanks in advance for any information you can share :)

Hi sxsy16, hired a band for my wedding! Didn't have to arrange for meals in my instance. But for my photographer/videographer, ordered them a set meal from the hotel prior to our dinner. Hope this helps!

Thanks dear. I eventually just provided chicken rice for them and they were ok with that.

Hi, I'm new in this forum and I enjoyed reading all the postings. I am 2018 BTB so am doing more research now :)

My couple friend hired a live band for their wedding and it made their big day more special. It didnt't get noisy and rowdy because their song choices were only made up of pop-jazz tracks so that relaxed the crowd.

Hi I've just finished my wedding.
And I am very happy to say it been a great choice choosing White Ribbon live music with Ruth as the singer / emcee. We have received so many compliments on their singing to help liven up the atmosphere for that day. A big thank to White Ribbon for making it a special day for us:)

Anyone knows if it is cheaper to engage the singer directly or thru agent like white ribbon etc?
You can go to facebook and search Once Upon A Note.

I have engaged them at $728 for 2 people live band including 1 of them will be my Chinese emcee for the event as well =)

They are booked by me on 25 Feb 2017 =)

Other bands easily cost $1k to $1.5k

Hey guys, my friend hired a band recently that was well-received. Apparently they can do three/four piece setups and acoustic/full band in line with what's required - their contact number was nine one seven one nine five seven two.

Hihi I had hired the two people live band cum bilingual emcee for both eng and chinese at $728. Their sound system cost $300 but I did not take up as my banquet allows me to use their sound system.

Just held my wedding on feb 25 and they came earlier just to do rehearsal first. Was very happy with their service and performance

Once Upon A Note seems the most affordable, but I went to their Facebook page and most of the videos are Chinese songs. As my fiance is non Chinese, have to choose singers who can do a variety of English songs. Are they good in singing those?

They do sing English Song really well as well. But you have to check with them what are the English songs that they can sing :)
