Wedding Band Cost: Baby Soda Jazz Band

In addition to The Prenups, another niche band represented by Lucy Music is Baby Soda Jazz Band. Baby Soda Jazz Band is a 6-piece band that specializes in street jazz. According to them, their influence ranges from 30s era swing to New Orleans jazz and southern gospel. Very cool stuff.   Wedding Band: Baby Soda Jazz Band Date Price Quoted: February 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: N/A Price Assumptions: 4 to 6 hours for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception Band Fee: $5,900 Travel Fee: $0 (non-specified additional fee for outside the NYC area) Tax: 0% Gratuity: 0% Total Wedding Band Cost: $5,900   The Main Point Baby Soda Jazz Band is also $5,900 but more along the lines of The Engagements Cover Band and The Affections, they do play for all the parts of your wedding, and one can definitely imagine southern gospel music playing during the ceremony while swing-like jazz pumps up the crowd during the reception. I like that they have a ton of videos on the...

Wedding Band Cost: The Prenups

Besides two of their most popular bands, The Engagements Cover Band and The Affections, Lucy Music also represents a few niche bands that specializes in rock, jazz, and string instruments. The Prenups is a 5-piece guitar-driven rock band that excels in 60s and 70s soul and rock. If you are going for a loud and vibrant wedding, here is the cost breakdown:   Wedding Band: The Prenups Date Price Quoted: February 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: N/A Price Assumptions: 4 hours for reception Band Fee: $5,900 Travel Fee: $0 (non-specified additional fee for outside the NYC area) Tax: 0% Gratuity: 0% Total Wedding Band Cost: $5,900   The Main Point At $5,900, The Prenups are priced in the middle range of bands represented by Lucy Music. Do note, however, that the band only plays 4 hours for the dinner reception. They do not play music for the ceremony or the cocktail hour. Known as an anti-wedding wedding band, I’m not sure you would want crowd-stirring rock music during your...

Wedding Band Cost: Joelle & the Pinehurst Trio

The last time I discussed wedding band cost, I talked about two of NYC’s most popular bands, The Engagements Cover Band and The Affections. Naturally, they were a bit on the pricy side given how popular they are. But you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot to book a quality band. Joelle & the Pinehurst Trio receive great reviews online and are quite affordable. Most importantly, they produce great music.   Wedding Band: Joelle & the Pinehurst Trio Date Price Quoted: January 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: July 2013 (Saturday) Price Assumptions: 4 to 6 hours for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception Band Fee: $2,800 Travel Fee: $0 (non-specified for outside the NYC area) Tax: 0% Gratuity: 0% Total Wedding Band Cost: $2,800   The Main Point $2,800 includes ceremony, cocktail hour, and the reception. If you only need Joelle & the Pinehurst Trio to play part of your wedding, it will cost less. For example, booking the band for just the reception part of your wedding will...

Wedding Band Cost: The Affections

If you really like The Engagements Cover Band, which I analyzed in the last post, but they are already booked for your wedding date or you are looking for a band that is slightly less expensive, have a look at The Affections. They are a part of Lucy Music, the music company that manages The Engagements. Anyways, here is the cost breakdown:   Wedding Band: The Affections Date Price Quoted: February 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: N/A Price Assumptions: 4 to 6 hours for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception Band Fee: $7,900 Travel Fee: $0 (non-specified additional fee for outside the NYC area) Tax: 0% Gratuity: 0% Total Wedding Band Cost: $7,9,00   The Main Point The Affections are a spin-off band of The Engagements. In fact, I was told all of them have performed with The Engagements at one point or another. Their music list has similarities but from a quick glance, I would say The Affections seem to play less soul and Motown. Nevertheless, this could be...

They receive perfect reviews on Wedding Wire so if music is an important part of your wedding, here is the cost breakdown for The Engagements:   Wedding Band: The Engagements Cover Band Date Price Quoted: February 2013 Wedding Date Quoted For: N/A Price Assumptions: 4 to 6 hours for ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception Band Fee: $9,000 Travel Fee: $0 (non-specified additional fee for outside the NYC area) Tax: 0% Gratuity: 0% Total Wedding Band Cost: $9,000   The Main Point As mentioned, people are often surprised by some of the prices that wedding bands charge. I find that a good way to think about the price of the band at your wedding is in terms of entertainment cost per guest. If you had a 150...
