Good Question Band leader Bruce Cline has been performing for corporate events, weddings, festivals and more for over 25 years. He brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to each event which is a valuable tool in making each unique event a tremendous success.
Every wedding reception is different, however there are several lessons learned over the years that will help assure your evening is a smooth, fun and stress-free party.
In advance of the event, we will meet with the venue director or wedding coordinator to go over staging and power requirements and load in/out procedures (indicated below*). If you don't have a coordinator, we will work with you to tailor the evening to your specifics. Details such as cake cutting, toasts, bouquet and garter toss, food and beverage arrangements for the band, etc., will be detailed and planned in advance. (You will receive a form to fill out in advance that will detail all of these items of concern)
Good Question will perform 3 hours of music over a 4 hour period. We will arrange our set and break schedules in accordance with your wishes, but have found that four, 45 minute sets with 20 minute breaks tends to work best. Of course, you may have special circumstances and we will do our best to accommodate as long as we make prior arrangements. During breaks we will play CD's covering various styles of music choosing songs from our collection, or you may bring your own.
As guests arrive, the band begins playing the perfect blend of cocktail music including instrumentals and vocal tunes covering the big band era to today’s contemporary light jazz songs.
As the bridal party arrives, it’s typically customary to introduce the bride and groom for the first dance. Some couples choose to do this when they arrive while others wait until after dinner. We will be happy to announce the bridal party along with the bride and groom as long as we are provided with a list of names and the order to be introduced. A father / daughter dance and sometimes a mother / son dance typically follow the couple’s first dance. Of course, all of this is subject to you or your coordinators direction from our prior meeting and discussions.
Good Question will be happy to perform “your song” for your special dance. Please make sure we have the song at least one month in advance of the event so we’ll have adequate time to prepare. We’ll do the same for father / daughter and mother / son dances as well. Please review our songlist and indicate songs you definitely want performed as well as those you don’t feel would be appropriate.
Good Question will work with you to make sure your reception meets or exceeds the wedding of your dreams!
