They say that the band you select for the wedding night is of paramount importance. Imagine booking a band for your amazing day, but then a different band shows up. Perhaps, fortunately, it’s the same singer you liked at the showcase, but the band is entirely different to what you saw, comprising of musicians who have never met before that moment.
This ‘band’ will call themselves the same name as another ‘band’ who are playing at another wedding on the same night as yours. And another wedding. A fleet of bands with one name, each comprised of, well, whoever’s free. Incredibly, this is happening all the time.
In contrast, The Best Men are an actual BAND. They are four people who’ve known each other for years and played together a thousand times (in fact, two of the members (Col – gtr, Aran – drums) grew up next door to eachother!). There is no substitute for the tight, bonded quality of a band who live and breath eachother’s playing and have done so at countless gigs.
