How Big A Band Will Be Required?
The personnel of the band depends to an extent on the style of music you choose for your live entertainment. For example, a typical pop covers band will usually be a 3-5 piece, but many bands can augment with a horn section and/or backing singers.
How Large Is The Venue?
It is useful to revisit the venue in order to critically appraise its facility for live music performance. What kind of stage (if any) is available? Is there sufficient lighting, and a suitable dance-floor, if needed?
Does the venue impose any limitations of time regarding live music? Is there a noise-limiter? Is the wedding breakfast to be served in the same room as the evening party? If so, will the band have sufficient space (and time) to set up their equipment prior to the performance? Bear all this in mind when deciding upon how large a band will be appropriate.
