Weddings

Weddings are a speciality of Black Knights Entertainment.

With most of the band and the office staff having tied the knot themselves we understand what it is you need from a wedding band and any other music during your wedding day!

You need a band that is professional in their approach, reliable, energetic and above all, entertaining. With the diverse age group of a wedding celebration, a broad mix of music is required to entertain everyone but not to dwell on one particular genre or type of music.

As you will see from our song list here we offer a selection of music suitable to just about every age group or function, and with 4 lead vocalists, there is an impressive vocal stamp on every song.

Black Knights Entertainment also offers pre-dinner music (e.g. piano), church music and DJs which may be combined with your live entertainment or booked separately to fit with your plans.

 

Your First Dance

Your first dance is an important choice. If at all possible we would like to perform it live for you - even if it is not currently in our repertoire. However, if you would prefer it played on CD we will facilitate.

If you would like us to listen to your song with a view to performing it, we would need the CD at least 8 weeks before your wedding. This is to facilitate rehearsals and requests from other couples.

 

On the Night

The band play for 3 hours which includes a 20 minute break while your guests are served tea/coffee and finger food. We will liase with the DJ (whether booked through us or you) to ensure a seamless transition.

Our approach to any performance where dancing is involved, is to provide continuous sets of music for about 20-30 minutes to ensure everyone stays on the floor. As the set builds you will find that while some guests may wish to sit for a few moments they will be quickly replaced by others who are just getting started. A short slow set will then follow to let everyone catch their breath!

Couples are usually curious as to how the timeline works at a wedding reception. As an example, under normal circumstances where music stops at 2am (most hotels request that music finishes at this time), the band would play from 9pm - Midnight (3 hours) and the DJ then playing until 2am (2 hours).

At this point, you may not be sure of the exact times of your wedding so we will finalise this with you closer to the time.

 

Making a Booking

In order to secure a date we require a EUR 500 deposit. You will be issued with a booking confirmation and receipt when we have received your deposit. Please remember that until a deposit is paid the date is not secured!

Due to the large number of enquiries we are unable to hold dates for more than 2 weeks. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.

 

What happens then?

Between making your booking and the big day, we encourage you to give us a call now and then just to keep us updated with your first dance or any other services you may have booked that we might need to know about (e.g. irish dancers etc.).

Also, if you change venue or date/time please ensure that you contact us as soon as possible. You'd be surprised how many people forget to tell their suppliers!
