WHY CHOOSE LIVE MUSIC FOR YOUR WEDDING
Live music brings people together.
It’s more than entertainment — it’s an experience, the same way concerts are!
Did you know that live music is also more danceable? It really is!
So if you want to get everyone to the dance floor, our wedding bands are your best bet.
LIVE MUSIC FOR THE WEDDING CEREMONY
From the bridal march to the recession, live music can make moments in your wedding ceremony more magical. Typically, a solo musician or a duo with a singer is hired for performing music for the entrance of the entourage and as the bride walks in. Imagine a violin trio or a guitarist with a solo singer serenading you as you walk toward the love of your life!
If you’re not sure what kind of wedding music or musicians to choose for your procession, we created a guide for that:
Another part of the wedding ceremony that could use some entertainment is the document signing. What better way to keep the romantic mood going for your guests than having live musicians play crowd favourites? And of course, you’d want your exit to be as grand as your entrance. So walk out of the room and greet your well-wishers to the tune of your favourite song in instrumentals!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT HIRING A JAZZ BAND FOR WEDDINGS
HOW MUCH DOES A LIVE WEDDING BAND COST?
This is one of the questions we get asked about so often that we wrote a blog post about it! Read it here: How much do wedding musicians cost?
There are several factors that can affect the final price you have to pay for live musicians in your wedding. For starters, musicians charge differently for playing wedding ceremony music versus reception music. Each set requires a different type of preparation and sometimes, different musical instruments and sound equipment are needed. There’s also the matter of the location and how long the event is going to be.
In the end, the best way to get a realistic estimate of the cost is to request a quote from us. Just fill out the contact form below and we’ll be in touch for a quick chat!
HOW DO WE CHOOSE THE BEST TYPE OF ENTERTAINMENT FOR OUR WEDDING?
From jazz trios and swing bands to pop rock bands and even a samba band, the live music options for weddings can make it feel overwhelming for you to choose one type of entertainment! But we got you. CW Productions has performed in hundreds of weddings over the years and we dare say we have a pretty good idea of what works.
The most important thing to get started is to narrow down your options according to your preferences. Yes, as simple as that. Begin with what you like. Do you like classic love songs and oldies played during dinner and for your first dance? Do you want some Elvis during the party? Or are Ed Sheeran hits more of your thing? Maybe you want a mix of both. When you contact us for a quote, don’t hesitate to be detailed. Whatever you have in mind, we can help you figure out the best kind of entertainment for your wedding day.
The second thing to consider is budget. Every couple wants a bang for their buck. Live bands may cost more than a DJ but they are ALWAYS worth it. Still we understand that you need to work within a budget. CW Productions aims to deliver premium entertainment no matter the wedding package you end up choosing.
Lastly, don’t confine yourself to the idea of hiring just one of kind of band for your wedding. Combining two kinds of live musical acts adds a new layer of excitement to your wedding. For instance, you could choose to hire a jazz band for the cocktail hour and dinner and a samba band for the party later on.
SHOULD WE HIRE A DJ with the live band for THE WEDDING RECEPTION?
Hiring a DJ with a live band for the wedding reception is a fantastic idea! We often recommend this so there’s never a dull moment during the night. The DJ can take over the entertainment duties when the band is on a break and vice versa. Hiring a DJ and band combo is also a great way to stay within your budget and still enjoy live music for the reception. Another option we offer is hiring a saxophonist and drummer along with a DJ.
