I think this is the right forum for this. Apologies if it's misplaced. I'm in an Irish band and we've been doing pubs and private parties for about a year. We do all the typical Irish drinking songs, some jigs and reels and a couple non-Irish covers. We added a violinist a few months ago who works in a string quartet and they make some serious money doing wedding ceremonies which got us all thinking and talking about the possibility of trying to find some work at weddings. We would obviously be more for the reception than the ceremony, but it got us wondering about the prospects of pursuing this market? At first glance, we'd have to cut about half our standard pub songs from our set which would then mean we'd have to find another 25 or so songs in our genre that would be more appropriate for an event like that. It would obviously be a very niche market but I'm thinking it might be worth pursuing if all it costs us is some promo pix in ties and learning 25 new songs. Wondering if any of you who are currently working wedding receptions have a feel for what works and what doesn't? Your overall impression of such gigs and if you've ever heard of an Irish/Celtic band doing a reception?
