Wedding entertainment doesn't get much better than a live disco band, playing everyone's favourite disco hits from the 70s, plus other funky floor-fillers. Here's five great reasons to book a disco band for your wedding, compiled with the expert help from Simon of Disco Chic and Clare of Groove Deluxe. Boogie on down!
1. Fill That Dance Floor
You'll know your disco wedding band is a fabulous success when you see everyone packed onto the dance floor with not even enough room for the bridesmaids’ handbags! A full dance floor shows your guests are having a great time, and as Clare from Groove Deluxe says:
A mix of disco and soul is simply THE best way to fill a dance floor!
2. Songs Everyone Knows And Loves
Disco is the ultimate musical sweetie tin - everyone has a favourite and most people love the lot! Simon from Disco Chic says the secret is for your disco band to play:
"A set list of songs all your guests will know, including those great hits that all ages love, from the young children to the grandparents!"
3. A Superb Live Show
Disco bands love to party, and love to be watched too! As Clare from Groove Deluxe says:
Disco bands won't just play the songs, but make them into a show to entertain your guests."
Simon from Disco Chic agrees saying that a disco band performance should be:
"A fun, colourful visual experience! Who wants to watch a boring bunch of musicians in smart black outfits? Get the afros out!"
4. That WOW Factor
Disco bands are larger than your average function or cover band, often with six or more talented musicians and singers, with options to add more if you wish. Most bands offer the option to bring a brass section, or extra singers, which gives them more flexibility in what they can play too, as Clare from Groove Deluxe explains:
Visually a disco band looks impressive due to its larger size, which creates a great wow factor that wedding guests love.
What's more, the disco bands here at Alive Network feature some of the best singers and musicians in the UK, who can be performing at your wedding one night, and working with top names in the music industry the next! So they always sound superb, whether in an inside space or outside marquee.
5. Dress To D.I.S.C.O.
As Simon from Disco Chic says:
Hiring a disco band for your wedding is the ideal opportunity to turn your wedding evening into a fancy-dress night – much more fun for all the family and breaks the dance-floor ice!
With everyone dressed in fun, funky outfits, your wedding party is more colourful, more enjoyable and more fun from the moment everyone walks in (and it costs you nothing extra…). So, give everyone plenty of warning so they can dig out their sequinned flares, hot pants, crazy wigs and medallions…
