Well, it’s that time of the year again! Engagement season! We had a blast finishing out our second to last wedding of the year (We’ll be counting down the closing seconds of 2016 during our fist ever New Years Eve wedding!) and now we’re back to the calendar finish booking the 2017 season!
We’re also excited to be expanding our offering this year by working with some fantastic other bands (check them out over on www.watershedentertainment.com!) 2017 is already shaping up to be our best year ever!
So with that said, I thought I would dive in and explain a little bit more about how the planning process works, should you want a professional live wedding band at your special day.
- First, it’s always better to book as far ahead as possible, we have already booked several dates in 2018 and the 2017 calendar is filling fast. However, its never impossible! Even if your wedding is only a few months, fill out the contact form and we’ll let you know if the band is available ASAP.
- Once you’ve submitted the contact form, we’ll get right back to you with our availability and place a “hold” on our calendar, this reserves the date for you and gives us time to workout the details.
- Now we get to the fun part, actually planning your entertainment for the night! We’ll talk through what services you’d like, whether it be live ceremony music or a live cocktail hour band. We’ll also narrow down any custom requests that your would like us to learn for the night.
- We’ll create a timeline and finalize any details as the day approaches. Last minute changes are not a problem and we’re used to working with venues and wedding planners to make everyone happy and the night absolutely perfect.
Read some of what our past couples have said about Sly 45 over at wedding wire!We’ve added some in below. We’ll still be playing regularly this winter around Baltimore and Annapolis see you out there!
“Sly 45 is amazing and truly made my wedding reception unforgettable! Everybody was dancing the entire night, it was one great song after another! People couldn’t stop commenting about how great they are. Andrew and Wylie are wonderful to work with and the bands ability to learn new music is fantastic! I can’t wait to see them play at some of their other events!” -Caryn
“If you are going between a DJ and Sly 45, don’t even think twice and go with Sly 45! You will not regret it one bit! It’s almost been a week since our wedding and our wedding guests are still talking about how amazing the band was! Everyone kept saying hands down this is the best wedding we have ever been to…because of your band!! Andrew worked with us to make our wedding very memorable. I wish that I could get married every weekend (to the same man) just so that I can dance to Sly 45!!” -Kara
