Having a wedding live band can definitely brighten up the atmosphere of any wedding. Engaging a suitable one can also help you set the ambiance that you desire to match your wedding theme and tone. If you’re looking for a romantic ambiance, going for musicians whose forte lies in ballad or jazz songs works.
