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?
In general, from $700-$10000, depending on size of band, and length of time performed.
Which events can Atlanta Wedding Band play?
AWB can play any event involved in your wedding; engagement party, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, reception. We also specialize in private parties, mitzvahs, corporate events, fraternity/sorority parties, just give us a space to rock!
What is your typical ceremony music ensemble?
The most common ensemble is a solo acoustic or classical guitarist. We also have violin, piano and cello. The fee for each instrument is the same, but the total fee will increase as we starting adding multiple instruments (duo, trio, quartet, etc.). If there is a particular instrument or ensemble you’d like to utilize for your walk down the aisle, we will make it happen, and it will be exceptional, we guarantee it.
