Frequently Asked Questions

Do you provide your own sound equipment?

Yes, we will learn any and all first dance and ceremony songs. We will also learn up to five songs not on the band playlist, all free of charge.

Will you MC the event?

Yes, we MC the entire event. The more specific information we receive leading up to the big day, the smoother things will transition. We are very well versed in keeping the crowd energetic and entertained during those still crucial gaps and making transitions flow seamlessly.

Will you play music during breaks in performing?

Yes, we do play music through the sound system during all scheduled breaks. You may pick the exact songs you’d like to hear during the breaks in the action to keep your loved ones engaged and dancing!

All options of payment will be included on the paypal invoice that will be sent for deposit with contract, and balance one month from your wedding.  You may also checkout as a guest if you do not have a paypal account.  We will cover any applicable credit card fee, just pay with what’s convenient!

Does Atlanta Wedding Band require and or provide their own stage?

No, we do not require a stage.  While we don’t require a stage, if bride and groom would like the band on a stage, we are happy provide you with a list of preferred vendors to deliver on the day of the wedding.

Can we pick out the specific songs we’d like the band to perform?

We encourage the bride and groom to pick up to 10 songs total in most circumstances (in a 25-35 song dance party).  We do this because through our extensive experience, we typically know the songs that will keep your loved ones dancing, having a great time.  It also helps to have the bride and groom or their loved ones select which genres to stick to, i.e. Motown, Funk, 80s, Classic Rock, Top 40, Country, etc.  We also welcome “do not play” lists!

What is your price range?

For full-band packages, 3k-11k, depending on the size of band and length of time performed.

What is your typical ceremony music ensemble?

The most common ensemble is a solo acoustic or classical guitarist. We also have violin, piano, cello, string quartets are available. If there is a particular instrument or ensemble you’d like to utilize for your walk down the aisle, we will make it happen.
