Some of you are probably thinking...what is a wandering band and why are they different from a regular band?
Well, you’ve come to the right place, because we have the answers for you about that very question. We’ll delve into 5 of the top reasons why you should be hire the best London Roaming Band for your wedding or event.
1. Getting Up Close & Personal
Everyone likes to feel that they’re part of the band, from the youngest of whippersnappers to those who experienced the great bands of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. Well with a wandering band, they’ll not only be playing songs that everyone loves, but up close and personal.
The beauty of wandering musicians is that if you’re wanting to get involved, you can! And have the same fun we do. Why not sing a long with us at the top of your voices, so that everyone from London to Timbuktu can hear you. Make yourselves feel like you’re as much of the band as we are. We promise that not only will you have enjoyed yourselves but also get that thrill of being part of the occasion in more ways than just enjoying the music.
2. We Can Play Anywhere
Even though it’s number 2 on the list. This is probably the most important factor that wandering bands can offer. We can play literally, ANYWHERE! Wandering bands don’t need oodles of equipment, lighting, cables and PA systems to get the job done. We carry the bare essentials on our backs and can be ready to go in a matter of seconds. So if you want a band on a boat that’s travelling full speed down the River Thames, on the top floor of The Shard, or a quiet country home. We can offer you the best possible entertainment for wherever you want us to play.
3. Noise Restrictions? What Noise Restrictions?!
Another great advantage of having a wandering band is that there’s no amplified sound. So if you’ve hired a venue that has strict sound restrictions that a live wedding band would never be able to adhere to; we guarantee that we’ll never reach the levels it takes to set off such things as sound limiters.
And trust us - as musicians, we can guarantee that those pesky things are enough to ruin anyone’s event. If by some crazy chance that your guests are singing so loudly to set off a limiter, there’s no interruption because wandering musicians aren’t plugged in anywhere to be cut off. Beat the system and don’t think twice about booking a band that will fill that need perfectly.
4. Years of Experience
If you want musicians who have years of experience in the music industry then look no further than The Wanderland Band. We know what it takes to put together great performances, the right music and that extra special flare that will captivate you and your guests.
This is through years of experience putting our drum sticks, guitars and microphones into many different music pots, a musical plethora if you will. We are never short of ideas that we’ve acquired over the years and can always offer something that you may have never seen before, which adds to our charm and personalities and make us a great addition to any event.
5. Tailored to You
And finally number 5 in our list. Tailoring any event to you. Wandering bands aren’t bogged down by equipment or set up and time restraints. So how and whichever way you want us to perform for your event, we can, and are more than happy to accommodate to any request we can achieve.
