Stan Wiest leader of The Stan Wiest Orchestra
Of A. Stan Wiest Music
Discusses planning wedding reception music for your band and orchestra
In New York, New York City, Long Island, New Jersey and Connecticut

Stan Wiest is a member of the New York and National Association of Bridal Consultants

WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC PLANNING – BAND AND ORCHESTRA MUSIC

WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC

Taking the time to plan and thoroughly think about your wedding reception music will eliminate a lot of problems down the road.
Some of the most common complaints I hear are:
1) The music is too loud
2) The band is always on a break
3) The band only played one type of music
4) The wedding reception seemed so unorganized
5) The band did not play what I requested
6) There was a problem with the band equipment, sound system etc
7) I was embarrassed by some of the speeches from the guests
8) I missed many important parts of my wedding reception

Let’s take each point and solve these problems in advance.
1)The Music Is Too Loud
In many cases the complaint is from an elderly guest that is seated right next to the band speakers. Always seat the older guests as far from the band as possible-always seat the youngest guests next to the band. There is a certain level of sound that must be maintained in order to create the excitement for dancing. Disco music cannot be played softly-it just does not work. Too many times the attitude of the band is “louder is better” and this ruins a wedding. There should be a definite understanding between the client and the band prior to the reception. The client should always have the final say as to the volume level-the client is paying for the band services.

2) The Band Is Always On A Break
This is another major problem. Bands use the term “continuous flow” and
Tells the client there will always be music playing. This is a big misunderstanding. This really means the band plays 20 minutes then puts on a CD for 20 minutes. The band actually plays 30 minutes or less per hour. Continuous music means the full band performs 55 minutes per hour. Make sure the specific time is written in contract.

3) The Band Only Played One Type Of Music
Many times this is the fault of the client in restricting the repertoire to be played. Remember- a wedding is not only for the bride but also for the guests attending. The music should suit the needs of all attending. The ideal wedding guest should be able to say “the band played my kind of music”
Regardless of the age group. Everyone should have the opportunity to participate in the dancing.

4) The Wedding Seemed So Unorganized
The problem here is that the client did not establish clear lines of
Who will be handling east aspect of the wedding. You always need someone who will coordinate with all the vendors. If you are not having a wedding consultant or a wedding coordinator for the day then make sure your band leader takes the responsibility to coordinate with all vendors involved. The band leader is the one person who can see all that is going on and can also
See possible problems before they become serious and out of control.

5) The Band Did Not Play What I Requested
This is an area you have to be very specific about. Many clients make the mistake of leaving the music selection totally to the band. Always give the band a guideline -again keeping your guests and their age groups in mind.

6) There Was A Problem With The Equipment, Sound System etc
The band should always have back up equipment in case of “Murphy’s Law”
This includes back up amplifiers, speakers, microphones, cables etc.

7) I Was Embarrassed By Some Of The Speeches Of The Guests
Other than toast and blessing no guest should be allowed to use the microphone without your permission. No surprises is the best way to go. After a few drinks a guest may unintentionally say something less than diplomatic.

8) I Missed Several Important Parts Of My Wedding
Make sure you coordinate with your band leader – that he will send a member of the band to find you before any important ceremony, dance etc is done. Also make sure the bandleader finds the photographer so there are not any missed photos. Leave enough time between the ceremony and reception so that you can enjoy the hour prior to the reception with your guests.

By Following the above suggestions and carefully planning in advance you will eliminate much of the stress and problems for your wedding reception.

BUDGETING FOR WEDDING RECEPTION MUSIC-STAN WIEST MEMBER ASSOCIATION OF BRIDAL CONSULTANTS

The first thing I tell brides is there is no substitute for quality. Never go for quantity. It is much better to have a fantastic 5 or 6 piece band than have a poorly rehearsed,put together orchestra of 12 or 18 pieces for the visual impact especially one that reads charts.

The Music makes or breaks the function.

If a bride and groom are mainly interested in background music with little dancing a great trio can make the difference between a so,so affair and something really special. Consider a jazz trio for great background music.

Something we see a lot of is problems with performing student groups (from a music college for instance either they cancel at the last minute adding undue stress to the final moments before the actual wedding or ceremony or they (the students) substitute other players for those who cannot make your date. It is much more efficient and pleasurable to spend on a single violinist or harpist who does this professionally than to worry about a four piece student string group who may or may not be there.

Again quality is the issue.Avoid going to Floating Showcases.These are where a company advertises a showcase at a different location each night of the week. The bride will be paying an inflated band fee. The bands usually have to pay a fee of $500 to $1000 per night to perform at these locations. The cost is passed along to the bride in inflated fees. The entertainment company books the wedding at these floating showcases and then relinquishes all responsibility for the band or the performance of the band. There is no guarantee the band will perform what the client wants or even that the members of the band will be the same at the wedding. The entertainment company moves on to the next floating showcase expecting never to hear from the bride again – it is no longer their responsibility. When the band breaks up – the bride is stuck with the cost of finding another band. Another area for a bride on a budget is ceremony and cocktail hour.

An excellent string trio can basically perform the same literature as a string quartet. Slightly less sound but still excellent quality and no limitations on the literature performed.

It is exotic to have a steel drum band for a cocktail hour but also costly.

For the bride on a budget a good keyboardist on synthesizer can produce the sound of steel drums,strings and a wide array of instruments. You will hear the instruments but not see them – all at a fraction of the cost. Remember a cocktail hour should be soft,background music to set the mood for the wedding reception.

Never hire a vocalist for a cocktail hour – it is a waste of money. No one will listen and guests will shy away since the vocalist will disturb their conversation. Strictly instrumental music for a cocktail hour.

If it is a choice between adding a 4th. 5th or 6th piece to the band for the reception – or having music for the cocktail hour – go for adding the addition piece for the reception.

Brides are constantly pushed to hire 9,10 or more pieces Many times

the ratio of musicians is too high for the number of guests attending or too large for the band area. With the technology of today’s synthesizers a good 5 or 6 piece band can sound like 10 or 11 pieces without the cost.

Versatility is extremely important. A good 5 or 6 piece band that is extremely flexible in repertoire is much more effective than a 10 or 12 piece band limited to reading music charts.

Many bands add additional vocalists that specialize in a certain style but they only sing one or two songs each hour. For a bride on a budget this makes no sense.

Bands (and DJ’s) who want to add an MC – an extra person just to handle the announcements and run the affair are not for the bride on a budget. Many times guests are intimidated by a MC on the dance floor. This is just as easily done by a member of the band-preferable the band leader. An extra person (MC) on the dance floor takes away from the elegance of a wedding. The MC is the featured attraction rather than the bride and groom who should be.

If a bride is on a budget rather than bringing in outside music for a church ceremony use the church organist and spend the additional money on the music for the reception. However if the reception is at a public catering hall – have one of the band members perform the music for the ceremony.

Every bride and groom should realize that at some point there has to be a cut off in the number of guests – select this number and stick to it. Keep in mind what you want musically and the costs as well as photography etc. Work out a budget in advance and set your priorities and stay within the budget.

Do not start going over the set number of guests. For those you cannot afford to invite send out wedding announcements. Each catering location has a minimum number of guests required for each room. Never book a room larger than your needs.

If a bride considers overtime for the music – remember it is not just the music. There will be a fee for the catering location,staff etc. If money is a factor continue the party after the set reception at the home of the bride or groom.

Buffet’s are always less expensive than sit down dinners. This enables you to save in one area and use the money towards another. You can also have a cocktail reception without a main course but always let your guests know in advance.

For the couple who are very restricted in the amount of money they can spend there is also the option of a disc jockey. There is no substitute for a great band it speaks of tastefulness,panache and party ambiance but a DJ who really knows how to get a crown going is a good way to save money.

But never get your DJ through a Pennysayver or card from a local bulletin board. So many times brides call us a week before their wedding date saying the DJ backed out for a better paying job or they are “sick” and cannot perform. When you deal with a reputable company – if there is a real illness or tragedy they will always be able to fill your affair with a DJ who is a professional.

THE RETURN TO TRADITIONAL WEDDINGS-STAN WIEST-MEMBER ASSOCIATION OF BRIDAL CONSULTANTS

The latest trend of BAND DJ ORCHESTRA combinations had taken a new direction. Brides are creating weddings with a more traditional approach. This can be seen in the music brides are choosing for their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception.

The wedding ceremony has reverted to traditional favorites such as “Canon in D” by Pachelbel for bridal party and the “Bridal March” by Wagner for the bride’s entrance. Recessionals have the “Wedding March” by Mendelssohn as the favorite.

There is a huge recurrence of Jazz for the cocktail hour selection. Most brides are requesting piano or piano and saxophone or piano and bass music featuring the standards and favorites of their parents and guests. The music of Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Rogers and Hart evoke immediate wonderful memories when heard by the older guests. Many will hear their own wedding songs performed.
What a great way to start a wedding – instantly winning your guests even before the reception starts.

Steel Drums have become the second favorite and Strolling Mariachi performers are in third place for cocktail hours.

The big change is the selection of first dance music. Brides are choosing songs that have been classic standards through the years – again songs that their parents and friends grew up with. Songs like “The Way You Look Tonight”, “It Had To Be You” in the style of Sinatra are in the majority.

The Bride and Father song “Daddy’s Little Girl” is the overwhelming emotional favorite. Groom and Mother songs now most popular are “The Times Of Your Life” and “Through The Years”

The reception music for bands, orchestras and dj combinations have taken a more elegant and traditional approach. Swing, Society Swing and Big Band music have become in demand with a mixture of contemporary music later in the reception.
With a Band DJ ORCHESTRA combination there is non stop music for the guests throughout the entire reception. The benefit of the BAND DJ ORCHESTRA combination is that it does not take up any additional room. Both bands and dj’s
use speakers, amplifiers, equalizers, mixing boards etc. By combining systems a wedding can have the elegance and excitement of a live band as well as hear songs performed by the original artists- in essence the best of all musical possibilities.

There are additional benefits. Catering establishments love the idea- it does not take up twice the space. Clients love the idea- there is no additional cost. This is a great budget helper.

The most successful wedding has the most diversity and flexibility with the music. If a bride has a packed dance floor, everyone says “that was my kind of music” regardless of the age group, there are no complaints of volume problems and the bride only has to worry about enjoying herself (the elimination of all stress) – What More Can You Ask For?

BAND DJ ORCHESTRA COMBINATIONS LONG ISLAND NEW YORK
STAN WIEST -MEMBER ASSOCIATION OF BRIDAL CONSULTANTS
PRESIDENT STAN WIEST MUSIC

With the growing diversity required by brides and grooms a new trend is developing in wedding reception music. The emergence of the BAND DJ ORCHESTRA COMBINATION on Long Island and in the New York area.

Many brides and grooms and their families seek the elegance and excitement of a live band. The wide appeal of the current club music also bring in the desire to hear the original artists. Rather than settling for one aspect (Band or DJ) brides and grooms are now looking at the BAND DJ Orchestra Combination.

Prior problems with having a Band and a separate DJ is that twice as much space is required. Also two completely different sound systems. The new BAND DJ ORCHESTRA combination has the DJ set up within the band – at NO EXTRA COST to the client.
A bride and groom can have the very latest music on the radio for their wedding (music that was just released that week) and still have the elegance and excitement of a live band performing for their wedding. This is also becoming a tremendous factor in mediating the differences in opinions between brides and grooms as well as between the future couples and their in-laws.

This now allows a bride and groom to stay within their music budget by contracting a 5, 6 or 7 piece band with the DJ set up included. The bride and groom can make up a list of every song to be played with the DJ set up.

Parents who want a band are now more willing to help out with the costs of the music. This now enables everyone attending the wedding to say “My kind of music was performed” regardless of the age group. No age group is excluded and it guaranteed a packed dance floor.

Catering establishments love the idea since it is not taking up any extra space designated to the performing area. Wedding planners and consultants love the idea because it gives them a tremendous flexibility in their proposals to clients. Everyone comes out a winner with this new trend.

One extremely importation additional benefit is that there is non stop music for the entire reception. No breaks. Guests can always be dancing when ever they want.
This is a superb idea for buffet receptions, tent weddings as well as traditional sit down wedding receptions.

Clients love the idea because it eliminates the complaint of “the music is taking a break”
