Search Music Band for marriage in Krakow

Czesc everybody,

Does anyone of you know a good Music band that performs at Polish weddings?
I'm not looking for a one person DJ but really a live music band with singer.

My Polish girlfriend (of course) and I are planning to get married next year in October close to Krakow and are looking for a good music band.

Any suggestions are more than welcome!

Best rgds,

Xavier

Hi Xavier,

Have you found a band for your wedding? I am also looking at options for a wedding in Krakow this summer.

Let me know what bands you reviewed and chose.

Congratulations on the wedding.

You want a traditional Polish band or you want a band which plays good music. There is a band in Krakow called - The Beertones and they place all the classic rock and Pop tunes. If that is what you are looking for I have an email contact for them.

Recommendations for live wedding bands (near Rzeszow)

Dzień Dobry,

My fiancée and I are getting married June 2015 in Rzeszow, but we are struggling to find a live wedding band for our reception?

Any suggestions / recommendations?!

Is that because they are all booked or because you're not sure how to go about it?
Here's one: zespolprogres.pl

Try googling Zespół na wesele Rzeszów. I hope you've got deep pockets! I know someone who paid 4000PLN for a wedding band.

RE: price. 4000 pln doesn't seem a lot when you factor in that 4-5 skilled musicians need to do a 12 hour set the first day and then another set the next day. So they may be taking 800pln for 2 days' work on a weekend and at unsociable hours. They can really make a Polish wedding great so get the best you can.

I agree with everything you say, Krecik. Bands play for most of the night, so they really earn their money, and as you say, it's really two days' work, even if they play only on the wedding night. In fact, I wouldn't consider working that hard for an average of a thousand PLN.

Bloody nonsense - there are two "lads" who play in Gdynia on the beach bars, and often busk in the subway (for good money) who play as a duo, one on electric acoustic and the other an ace guitarist.

You could get them for 1000 zl and they have any tune you like nailed. Like Hendrix could, you whistle the tune, they'll pick it up instantly, and render it. They are even prepared to play wedding crap, if you're paying, and sing perfectly in role too. And damned better than any of that Mellotron Polski wedding rubbish which sadly, in communist times, me and Mrs Dougpol had to suffer.

I'm sure you have the same talent as the above where you live, and I ain't talking about the dreaded Mellotron :)

Doug, two guys simply couldn't play well all night. Wedding band members pace themselves by taking breaks and having three members do the disco polo crap (yes, they also have to please three generations, not easy) or even two members and a drum machine. People are not going to hire beach bums or buskers for the night of their lives. They want a band that looks good and has done lots of weddings before. Believe me, I've hated every wedding band's music I've ever suffered, but it's not about me, is it? (I'd've booked The Who but Moonie was dead before I got married.)

I agree weddings are expensive. If you're having 100 people or so, they need to be entertained by professional musicians into the early hours. If it's just one day 4000 seems high however for a big 2 dayer than for me it's a normal price. However the price of a band could vary enormously based on their reputation and skills level. The best Polish weddings I've been to have been that way because of the band. They need to be good musicians but also able to be good presenters for the many games and activities that happen on the dance floor.

Here are some people discussing band prices in Poland 3 years' ago and 3000 for a day and 4500 for 2 seems normal.

They also have to know that exact right moment when to chip in 'teraz idziemy na jednego'. :-)

Not much change from 20,000PLN just for the party. And that would be nothing fancy.

but also able to be good presenters for the many games and activities that happen on the dance floor.

Good point.

3000 for a day

Good point Roger - I hadn't thought it through. At my wedding they took breaks - to and hit the vodka somewhere I suppose :)

PS - these lads are not beach bums, they are professional musicians. I know a great rendition of Cocaine when I hear one :) Now that would have been ace at my wedding - instead of the bleedin' Birdie Song.

Never again lol.

Check if they also gonna speak english if you think of inviting english speaking guests. You would need a translation of wedding games, jokes or just someone who entertain them. I just have been myself to polish-english wedding and english guests were confused sometimes of whats going on.

Thanks for the comments so far.

Roger 5 - Issue is that most of them appear to be booked already. Getting to the point where price is less a factor as long as we can secure a band that is going to entertain both in Polish and English.

Essentially I'm asking for recommendations of bands that you may know or have experience working with that I can try to contact? They need to be able to perform English and Polish songs. And disco-polo, lol.

Just phoned these guys (zespolprogres), but busy. Guess there at a wedding!

Well they play some Dzem and Budka Suflera :)

That Disco Polo and Biesada music, plus the "games", mean that I always get obstinately drunk at weddings - funerals are far more fun :)

Merged: Wedding band in or around Jelenia Góra

Dzien dobry,

My fiance and I are getting married in Jelenia Gora next July and are currently looking at wedding bands. Anyone have any suggestions of bands who can entertain and sing in both English and Polish? I am Scottish and my wife-to-be is Polish, from Jelenia, so we need to make sure the party is great for guests on both sides of the family!

Thanks in advance.

Ryan

Nowy Wiśnicz is near Kraków (Cracow) so you should have no problem finding a wedding band, photographers and especially translators

Well, I have heard of Twilite Nites if you are looking swing or jazz music. I have to weddings south Florida(theaddisonofbocaraton.com/weddings-overview) and all the bands over there were so cool and soothing.

Can anyone recommend a band/musicians near Krakow that we can hire for wedding this summer 2017? My son is Scottish, his fiance is Polish. We would like a band who can play Scottish Celidh music for dancing rather than pop or rock. We'd really appreciate some feedback.

Wedding band wanted! SOS!



Hello everyone!
We have a wedding in Poland in September 23rd and we are still missing a band. Band should be playing 100% live music and not only polish songs. Do you have any recommendations for available bands?

Band doesn't have to be a wedding band so that they don't have to have any games etc..

Hi everyone,
I am getting married near Kraków in the next year or so, and I am finding it difficult source a highly recommended bilingual wedding band that would suit a Polish/Irish crowd. It seems most bands are around the 5000-6000pln price but I am willing to go above this. Would anyone have any recommendations for a band to fire out the usual wedding hits from the 80s/90s & Polish greats!?

Thanks.
