A Look Behind the Scenes
One of our specialties here at Rossi Music is helping clients find the perfect entertainment for their wedding in Los Angeles and Southern California, including Santa Barbara and Orange County. Rick and Rebecca Rossi run the business but are also professional musicians themselves and have been based in Los Angeles for the past 25 years. This experience means they know who the best of the best is whether it be a classical string ensemble, jazz trio, flamenco guitarist, Bollywood sitar player, or one of our slammin’ wedding bands.
I’ve been a Rossi Music intern for a few months now and I am seeing the behind the scenes intricacies of hiring a top-tier Wedding Band in Los Angeles like “The LA Players” or “Black Tie Nights”. I also went to a friend’s wedding in Los Angeles this past week, so I’ve certainly had weddings and marriage on the brain. I’m 26 years old now (soon to be 27…ugh) and I definitely see marriage as a possibility in the near future with my girlfriend.
I brought this up to Rebecca recently and after we sat down and talked about my plans for music at the wedding, I realized why their business is so successful! She explained the process very clearly and provided insight that only someone with years of experience in the business would have. I told her that I would probably want a flute and guitar duo to play for the ceremony, a jazz trio for the dinner, and a wedding band that could cover jazz standards, Latin Salsa, Motown, 80’s and current Top 40 dance band for the party afterwards. She had excellent suggestions for all three groups, showed me clips of their playing, and explained the price range options. Since I am on a budget, she suggested a particular wedding band in Los Angeles that could also cover the jazz trio for the dinner. She even printed out the dance band’s song list for me so I could see their repertoire and choose which songs I want them to play.
The experience made me realize how many details go into booking a band for this type of a reception and it will definitely help to have Rebecca and Rick helping me when this day comes!
