How to choose wedding entertainment?
Entertaining your guests at your wedding is one of the most overlooked areas. We sat down with Key Signature Events, a full service entertainment resource! Key Signature Events help clients choose and book the best entertainment for their events and weddings. They work with a wide variety of musicians, from solo artists up to full party bands. They also work with novelty artists, like magicians, jugglers, and more. Key Signature also produces concerts and can handle production and sound needs for larger events and venues.
Even if you are only considering entertainment during the ceremony – Companies like Key Signature Events can book just ceremony musicians, as they work with a wide variety of them. Some popular options are solo strings (violin or cello), smaller string groups like trios or quartets, solo harpists, pianists, and acoustic guitarists. They can work with your budget to find the right artist for your ceremony. They are happy to help you with entertainment just for your ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, or all three! Key Signature Events and Split Second Sound have recently formed a partnership so that if you’re interested in blending live and DJ entertainment you can seamlessly work with either company to fulfill your entertainment plan.
A few questions to consider when booking entertainment.
How far in advance should I book your entertainment? Bands and DJ’s can book up to a year (sometimes longer) out for weddings, depending on their popularity. The sooner a couple can decide on what type of entertainment is a perfect fit for them, the better chance there will be a great option available for their wedding date. At the latest we would recommend booking entertainment at least 6 months out. We are happy to recommend different styles of entertainment if a couple is not exactly sure what they want.What should I expect when working with Key Signature? Key Signature’s number one priority is to create an easy and enjoyable experience for couples and planners while booking wedding entertainment. We take care of all the details leading up to your wedding date like contracts, getting day of information to artists, coordinating with planners and venue corespondents if necessary, and making sure the artist touches base with you before your big day. We make sure that our artists have all details they need well before your wedding day. You get to do the fun part; pick your entertainment, send us any special requests, and we take care of the rest!
What if I know I want entertainment but not sure exactly which group? We are happy to make recommendations for you. We have a large roster of artists that we work with, so we can recommend several options for whatever style of entertainment you’re looking for that is within your budget. Once you’ve picked the perfect artist for your wedding, we take all details and issue a contract. This ensures that all details spoken beforehand will be expected and executed. It also locks in the artist of your choice for that date, so you don’t have to worry about no-shows.
