    Band has cancelled....

    We got an email today to say that our band can 'no longer honour' our wedding date so are cancelling argh!  To be fair the guy we booked them through was super apologetic and has made some suggestions to try and organise an alternative for us but I'm stressed!

    We're getting married in September so we still have a  bit of time, but I know that some good bands get booked up really quickly.  We had also booked a jazz band who could do uptempo songs to dance to as something a bit different, and I'm struggling to find anything similar as most jazz type bands are more the cocktail hour type.  We were looking for something a bit different from the regular wedding band (we are both more into alternative music - jazz, blues, funk, rock, metal etc.) and it took us ages to decide on one in the first place.  I'm not sure now whether to just go for a DJ or do a spotify playlist or something and call it a day ugh.

    What area are you in?  There's a good band gigging around the Leeds pubs called The Roosters.  They do rock, classic bluesy rock etc.

    We're in South Wales so a bit of a distance from Leeds!! Doesn't hurt to look though, some bands do travel all over the place :)

    Oh no, what a bummer for you. I'm sorry your band cancelled :( We are searching for bands at the moment and my friend told me about this web site www.alivenetwork.com

    You can search for type of band, by area and price etc. it's been really helpful for us.

    Good luck with your search, I'm sure you will find something :)

    Hi Milly,

    I'm sorry to hear that your band has let you down. It would be a shame for you to compromise your entertainment on your big day because you were let down, there is still plenty of time to find a band, I'm sure.

    I may be able to help you, I play in a couple of bands, including a smaller jazz group that might suit your needs as well as a party band for the evening. If you would like to find out more or talk more about this then please get in touch. My email is davesandersmusic@gmail.com, I'd love to help.

    Cheers and good luck.
