Is the band you see the band you get? Yes. We write each band members name right on your contract so that you know who will be performing at your wedding. All of our bands rehearse and showcase as set members so they are all comfortable working with each other to make your affair a success.
Is Franklin Wayne Music an established company? Yes. We have been in business since 1973. Some members of our bands have been with us since they were teenagers, and other new, exciting talent has been added every step along the way!
Do you MC the wedding? Yes. Our bands are all comfortable and familiar with making all the introductions and announcements needed at your affair.
Are the bands insured? Yes. We carry a $1,000,000 liability policy which is required by catering halls.
Why is Franklin Wayne Music recommended by more catering halls than any other music company? Our bands are excellent, professional, and reliable. They pride themselves on making every party a success!
When we are quoted a price on a specific band, what does that price include? The price includes music at your cocktail hour (keyboards), and live, continuous music at the affair for 4 hours. We do not charge tax or any administrative fees.
I have been to weddings where the band took too many breaks. How about Franklin Wayne's bands? Our bands will only break as per the maitre d's instruction. When we break, we leave at least one musician on stage to play live during the serving of that particular course. Our intention is to make your party a success by making sure the dance floor is always crowded.
Do I have any input into the music played at my affair? Yes, of course. We will mail you a worksheet three months prior to your wedding along with a current song list. We will be happy to honor your requests at that time, especially your all-important first dance. We will gladly learn a few songs if they do not appear on our list.
How do I go about reserving a Franklin Wayne band? Simply call us and we'll issue a contract, which will hold the date for one week. Within the week, we ask that you mail your deposit to us to solidify the date.
Can you provide ceremony music for us? Absolutely. Anything from piano to violins to harpists, classical quartets and trios. Please contact us for pricing.
When should I book my band? Now. If you really like a band, don't hesitate and lose the date. Most of our bands book 12-18 months in advance of the date. Although there are always a few scattered dates open in the current year.
One further note about music: Our bands can play all styles of music. Our keyboard players can play anything from classical, to jazz, to pop. Our bands have played to all sorts of crowds. We pride ourselves on being able to perform any style of music.
