When you provide entertainment for as many gigs as Four on the Floor band, your memory of one wedding reception booking sometimes merges into another – it’s possibly something to do with the fact that all of the gigs we play invariably end with:
- Our vocalist singing from the middle of the dancefloor
- Everyone else on the dance floor
- Several encores
- Guests in a sweaty, happy mess
Experienced Wedding Band Performers
Still, it’s good to be reminded of specific bookings by way of feedback from clients. We performed for Laura and Tom at Brockencote hall just outside Stourbridge last year, and from memory everyone had a great time. Brockencote is an interesting venue as the only available performance area is the restaurant, which is a relatively small conservatory area built onto the back of the original building. Any band or entertainer performing there needs to be aware of sound constraints as there are usually other paying guests in the rooms above and a sound limiter has been installed which governs the maximum volume bands can play at. Sounds limiters are becoming more and more common at wedding venues so it makes sense to hire a professional band such as FOUR ON THE FLOOR who will be happy and able to work in such an environment.
Laura and Tom did exactly this – they were aware of the constraints of the venue and decided that it would be best to hire a band with experience of performing with sound limiters rather than leaving things to chance and risking power to the room to be cut every time the drummer hits a cymbal, etc. Very wise! So we came, we played, and we conquered! Laura told us:
“sorry this is a late email but we just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding reception last year. Our first dance (“The One” by Kodaline) sounded amazing, as did the rest of the songs, and your singer has a great voice. Not sure if you noticed but Tom started crying during the first dance because everything was so perfect. I thought that was supposed to be my job! Anyway, thank you all once again, we’d recommend you in a heartbeat.”
Wow, how good is that? We love to receive feedback lie this as it lets us know that we are doing a good job. If you’d like to look back on your wedding reception with those kind of feels, why not think about hiring Four on the Floor band for your wedding entertainment?
