When searching among the Charleston wedding bands for a group to put on a stellar live music show at your one-and-only wedding reception, you want to avoid groups that fit the typical wedding band stereotypes at all cost.
The phrase “wedding band” (when referring to music, not rings) itself conjures up scenes from The Wedding Singer or memories of that really terrible group of old guys dressed in outfits from the 1920’s that played Cousin Betty’s wedding last year.
Either way, it’s not really what you want to have at the reception on your wedding day, is it?
There are gobs and gobs of stereotypes attached to wedding bands that have gained traction over the years (for good reason). There are also more than a few adjectives that people tend to associate with wedding bands... typical, cheesy, annoying, average, stuffy, and corny just to name a few. Do any of these ring a bell?
Let us address just a few of these and look at 3 cheesy wedding band stereotypes you surely won’t get with music by Charleston’s Super Deluxe.
1. A Laughable Performance
When you revisit that unforgettable performance by the band at your Cousin Betty’s wedding last year, one of the things that really stands out in your mind is how funny the performance was.
Now, these guys weren’t trying to be funny. They were just doing what they do.
When you hire a typical wedding band for your reception, one of the things you get as a result is a pretty funny performance characterized by more than a few humorous moments. You may laugh because 1) the band just isn’t that skilled, 2) they may be trying too hard and come off as corny, or 3) they may be saying or doing things that are inappropriate.
Regardless of the reason, a typical wedding band’s performance is going to be laughable on some level. When you hire Super Deluxe for your wedding reception, you are going to get one of the best music performances you have ever seen.
Don’t take our word for it, though.
2. An Average Song List
Another stereotype of the band that played Cousin Betty’s wedding reception last year is that they have a fairly average song list.
Now, these guys weren’t trying to be average. They were just doing what they do.
When you hire a typical wedding band, you are getting a group that largely plays nothing but the most over-played songs of all time. Now, there is nothing wrong with playing songs, like “Brown Eyed Girl” and “Mustang Sally” that are popular and done by a large number of variety bands. The problem lies, however, with the fact that a typical wedding band only plays the burnout hits and fails to make a handful of signature tunes their own.
When you hire Super Deluxe for your wedding reception, you get a high-energy, music experience complemented with a unique, thoughtful set of dance songs.
Don’t take our word for it, though.
3. Stuffy Tuxedos and Odd Uniforms
A third stereotype of Cousin Betty’s wedding reception band is that they dressed in stuffy tuxedoes.
Now, these guys weren’t trying to be stuffy. They were just wearing what they wear.
When you hire a typical wedding band, you are getting a group of (mostly) guys that still think that the tuxedo is the uniform of choice for all formal events. Now, there isn’t necessarily anything wrong with wearing a tuxedo, especially if it’s current with a modern look to it. The problem with this formula is that the music group tends to look like they are dressed for a 1927 burial, not a 2011 wedding celebration.
When you hire Super Deluxe for your wedding reception, you get a music show that everyone will be raving about with a unique blend of dance songs performed by a put-together, sharp-dressed group of professional musicians.
