Top 10 Wedding Live Bands in Singapore (2024 Updated!)

Updated: Jun 6


Best live bands for weddings in Singapore

Hiring a live band for your wedding is a new idea in Singapore. While entertainment and engagement during a wedding used to be less critical in older generations, hiring a wedding live band has steadily grown in popularity with younger couples. 


Even though it might be an extra cost, many young couples have realised that creating a memorable event is just as important as the traditional rituals. Setting a mood and atmosphere with a live band is an effective method of achieving that goal. Having a wedding live band is much more engaging than playing recorded music, as live musicians can interact with the crowd and take requests.


Before we list the top 10 wedding live bands in Singapore, let's explore the pros of hiring a live band for your special day.

Why should you hire a live band for your wedding?

There are many reasons to have a live band for your wedding; however, here are five of our favourites:


  • Creates a memorable experience

  • It gives you flexibility in the choice of music

  • Provides interaction and engagement

  • Allows seamless transitions and atmosphere control

  • Creates an energetic environment



1. Creates a memorable experience


We can all remember our favourite concert experience; whether it is a big stadium event headlined by a superstar or a quiet show at a bar with your favourite local band, live music can create memorable experiences. A live band can have that same effect on your wedding. Picture yourself having your first dance with a song playing from Spotify versus live musicians in your wedding ballroom. You can tell there's a big difference even just thinking about it. Dancing to a live wedding band makes a much bigger impression than dancing to a recorded track.



2. Flexibility in music


Most professional musicians and wedding live bands are skilled in different genres of music. In Singapore, it's common for a live band to switch from classic jazz to Mandopop instantly. This versatility can be very beneficial in a live setting as the musicians can observe how the crowd reacts to certain styles of music and adjust accordingly. This ability to be flexible also allows live bands to adapt to different themes and atmospheres. For example, the couple might prefer slower ballads during the dinner reception but may require high-energy party music for the afterparty. 


Regardless of your musical requirements, a professional wedding live band can accommodate your requests. 



3. Interaction and engagement


Despite Spotify's best attempts at releasing new features like their “DJ” mode, the app will never be as interactive and engaging as a live band. With a live band, the musicians can speak with the audience in between songs to increase engagement. It is expected to see singers double up as wedding emcees, too. 


Another interactive aspect of a live band is the ability to take song requests. Everybody has that one uncle who has to hear Eric Clapton's “Wonderful Tonight." Occasionally, one uncle might even want to come up to sing with the band. 


It's common for the audience to sing and dance to well-known songs. I remember seeing a crowd singing and dancing to Frankie Valli's "Can't Take My Eyes Off You” at my last wedding. 



4. Seamless transitions and atmosphere control


Have you ever been to an event filled with awkward silences? Those moments can often bring the energy of a moment down. The occasional silence is easy to ignore, but too many of those silences in a row can make an event feel unprofessional and haphazard. With a live band at your wedding, many unplanned silences can be easily filled with music. For example, interludes between speeches can be filled with walk-out music, making it feel more like a late-night television show rather than a wedding. 


Music can also enhance emotional moments during speeches. For example, a pianist can accompany a speaker and play softer during calmer moments and louder during exciting parts. The right chord at the right moment can also have a great emotional impact on a speech. Certain chords can bring forth sadder emotions, while others sound happier. Used correctly, this can be a powerful tool for creating an atmosphere during speeches. 



5. Creating energetic moments


Besides having a live band during the wedding reception, it's also common to have a live band perform at the afterparty. Without a doubt, the afterparty must be high-energy and fast-paced, and nothing beats having a live band play high-energy, crowd-favourite songs that are easy to sing. As long as the setlist is well-planned, you can be sure that your guests will be dancing away throughout the entire set.
