How do The Best Men dress for functions?
The band dress professionally for the occasion, with black suits and ties.
Has the band played at my wedding venue previously?

Does the band perform live, or are backing tracks used?
Nothing compares to an authentic live performance, and your wedding deserves more than uninspiring backing tracks! We believe in the true musical experience, and thus perform 100% live – providing that energy and spirit that’s so fundamental to great entertainment.
What instruments feature in The Best Men Wedding Band?
The band is a four-person group encompassing vocals, drums, bass, guitar and keyboard.
Can we choose our own ‘First Song’?
Yes, of course. Having had years of experience communicating with brides & grooms about those little elements that make their special day flawless, we understand the importance of working with a band that is adaptable & gives you the freedom to add any of your own personal touches.
We can perform absolutely any song you select, and if it would help, we can provide you with a list of the most popular first songs for inspiration. If you would prefer to have a CD played to accompany your first dance, we can play it through our quality PA system.
What if a guest wishes to sing a song?
The Best Men are seasoned professionals, so we’re totally experienced at jumping up and following your guest singer. The band will endeavour to accompany them, regardless of key or tempo.
