Negotiating Hiring a Wedding Band.
Video Rating: 4 / 5
Ahhhh this one is too true. I used to work full time as an audio engineer
doing weddings with bands, working ridiculously long hours and getting paid
peanuts because people just don’t see the value in paying for the services.
People are willing to fork out thousands for flowers, photographers etc,
but paying the band and techs a couple hundred for a nights work is just
too far fetched. Funny vid though
This vid has me in stitches. I can’t stop laughing. I’ve experienced this
scenario numerous times. Hilarious & TRUE!
@Maxinelong You’re so right about the first song thing. One of my favorite
memories was being asked to play an instrumental version of November Rain
for the bride’s entrance. We were a tenor sax/gypsy swing guitar duo. And
yes, we did it. I don’t need to mention that the bride was wearing hot pink
high heels. Ah, what a business…
@Dookiestix awesome post!
i worked for a wedding band in new york doing the sound and it can be for 7
people it was 10k
@Porthbot yep… that is the truth unfortunately as graphic/web design has
been de professionalised… contracts all the way for me, they don’t want
to sign I feel vindicated walking away.
I wish I could play this vid to every wedding enquiry we receive that are
shocked by our quote…….!
RueDeLaHarpe, thank you, thank you!
The best parts are: BRIDE: “Because it’s my money & I’ll do what I want
even if it means wrecking my own wedding”. MUSICIAN: “You are stubborn and
stupid. But we’ll do it”. And… “That’s fine. Maybe you could ask her to
stab me with the cake knife, because that will be less painful than sitting
through your wedding on the bandstand”. And… BRIDE: “Because of your bad
attitude, I am going to hire a wedding coordinator to come over and tell
you to turn it down before you even start playing”.
Every time I turn down a wedding gig because the bride is too cheap, I
watch this video and giggle.
That was pretty damn hilarious. Y’all need to make more videos!!
so true! So very true
wow I think I know her
This is hilarious/ so sorry for you all Sounds normal??? oh Man!!!
Hilarious, and largely (allowing for the removal of the veneer of civility)
right on. Welcome to MY world.
What’s the matter with you complainers! Whenever we did weddings we were
grateful for carrying our guitars from the loading dock; past the dumpsters
filled with schmegma; through the kitchen; up a service elevator into a
room where the maitre’d from hell would read us the riot act before we
could even set up. THEN we had to eat tomato sandwiches and flat soda; put
up with insane relatives and watch crazy drunk Uncle Tom dive bomb the
tables with a napkin on his head and sunglasses.
a fellow muso sent this link to me – its brilliant and sums up exactly what
the general public think of us– i also love the guy who comments that its
17 dollars an hour each has he never heard the word expenses or equipment
upkeep or any of the myriad of things we havr to go thru for that 5 hours
on stage (at $17 an hour)
Oh Dear God…
This is eerie. The only stone unturned was choice of a song for the First
Dance. I once had someone request “Me and Mrs. Jones.” -Touching. And
someone once explained to me that Playing the music was just that: play.
Work is what people get paid for, not play. Anyway, anybody can do it.
HITS NAIL ON HEAD. Let the clueless hire DJs; the rest of us know that a
good live band beats the hell outta any DJ.
@cretinalert – I feel so very sorry for you. It must be horrible to live in
such misery that you need to attack others with lies and ridicule… : (
We used to have to bring our own silverware, because all they’d give us is
Been in the music biz for almost 30 years and it doesn’t get any more real
than this!!! This is WHY we drink and do drugs… : )
This conversation should of ended at 0:34. There is nothing to be gained by
trying to plead your case with someone who doesn’t respect your role in the
importance of their day. As for some of the negative comments about wedding
djs, they are well founded but I suggest that it might be more productive
to deal with less professional bands who under cut your prices rather then
crap on the djs.
