He’s compiled a list of the most popular wedding bands in Italy that will be perfect for your wedding in 2017/18. So without further ado, it’s over to Giovanni…
The Struggles of Planning a Wedding in Italy
My brides all tell me it’s a struggle to find Italian wedding bands that are up to standard, and that’s why they come to me.
I’m originally from Sardinia and split my time between Scarlett Entertainment’s head office in the UK and satellite office in Rome. So I often have the advantage of local knowledge that most of my brides – who live abroad – don’t have, as well as being able to speak Italian!
Top Wedding Bands in Italy
With this in mind I’ve compiled a list of wedding bands in Italy that are not only some of my favourites, but also happen to be the most popular with my wedding couples.
Super Party Rock Band
Based in Rome this phenomenal Italian party band were our most booked wedding band in Italy in 2016. When you take into consideration their amazing energy and their international repertoire it’s no wonder why.
I’ve had no end of fantastic feedback from my wedding couples about Super Party Rock Band. I’m now also lucky enough to be working with them on an exclusive basis meaning that any couples looking to book them for their big day in the future will be liaising solely with the band and myself. It’s the perfect partnership.
Folk Quartet Italy
Varied, dynamic and all-round talented musicians Folk Quartet Italy are my go to band for when I have a wedding couple that wants something upbeat and high-energy, with a folk twist. Incorporating the violin, accordion and ukulele into their line-up produces an incredible sound that never fails to have my clients raving about how amazing they were! One of my couples recently commented:
‘You mentioned that everyone gets in touch afterwards to say how great they were, and I can understand why now. We want to thank you so much!! They were ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE, the absolute perfect way to finish off an amazing day! I cannot recommend them enough; the choice of music, energy and they were all so friendly we just didn’t want the night to end! I’ve been recommending them to everyone I meet!’
Funky Big Band
I always put Funky Big Band forward when my wedding couple requests a bigger line-up. With male and female vocals they are a standard six-piece band but are able to add musicians and singers to create a line-up of up to 11, including a brass or rhythm section. It’s so rare to find a band that can create such a large line up of extremely talented performers.
Another band that I always receive amazing feedback for, my clients assure me that Funky Big Band have guests of all ages dancing until the end of the evening.
There are not many other small acoustic line-ups in the Italian events music scene that can rock a party like the Tuscan Trio!
Performing acoustic and electroacoustic, they’re incredibly popular with my couples that are looking for an Italian wedding band with a smaller line-up that still packs a punch. Offering original, live arrangements of well-known songs, they can tailor their set lists to suit any musical taste.
Party Covers Band Italy
As one of the most sought after and highly acclaimed bands in the Italian events industry, Party Covers Band Italy have a reputation that precedes them right across the country. It really is no wonder that they are a favourite with couples that come to me looking for wedding entertainment in Italy.
Renowned for their ability to create a club atmosphere, they are perfect for couples that want a band with a modern feel and a sound to entertain guests on their wedding day.
Swing Band Milan
This fabulous five-piece swing band based in Milan is my first port of call when a couple tells me that their wedding has a vintage theme.
Swing Band Milan’s performances bring to life the golden age of Italian swing and add a touch of vintage Italian glamour and nostalgia that will complete a vintage wedding theme. As they perform in Italian, they are also hugely popular with couples that come to me looking for authentic Italian music.
Italian Rock ‘n’ Swing Band
If a couple wants authentic Italian swing, but with an injection of upbeat rock ‘n’ roll, my suggestion would be Italian Rock ‘n’ Swing Band. They’re always a huge hit with couples that book them.
Based in Bologna, their crooning vocals and infectious rhythms create a vibrant atmosphere that is perfect for dancing the night away to. They also have a fantastic vintage Italian look that definitely lends something to their overall performance.
Booking Wedding Entertainment in Italy
Whether my brides to be are residents of Italy or planning their wedding from abroad, booking entertainment for their wedding in Italy really couldn’t be easier with myself on hand to take care of all the details.
If you’d like to get in touch to talk about any of the bands I’ve mentioned above, or to discuss additional Italian wedding entertainment options please don’t hesitate to send me an email. Let’s start planning your perfect Italian wedding.
