What are the prices of a band for a wedding in France? 

Let’s start directly with what interests you the most: prices. You should know that each group has a different price. Depending on the method of payment of the group, its notoriety or its experience in live music. But one thing is clear and valid for all situations: the more members there are in the group, the more the price will increase.

Quartet, Quintet, jazz band or wedding orchestra, you still have to pay the service providers who make them up to the legal minimum in the event environment.

Why? You should know that each artist in the group is paid individually. So the price of musical entertainment is the sum of the salaries of the musicians of the orchestra. This one swells based on their notoriety and charges (but we’ll get to that later).

The price that will be communicated to you is therefore largely based on the performance of the group as a whole. Thus, the prices of a band for a wedding in France vary according to the number of musicians. To give you a better idea, here is a price range:

So, for one hour of service, count on average 250 euros including tax for an artist. For a trio, the price is around 700 euros. For a quartet group, 900 euros on average.

What impacts the price of a wedding band ? 

The popularity of the group

Of course, these prices are subject to change depending on the reputation of the group and their experience. Thus, a popular group with more experience will have a higher rate than a less popular group.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bet on them, though. We must give them the opportunity to stand out and thus become the BB Brunes of tomorrow. So you can brag and say, “I discovered this band first!” when they become known nationally and internationally!

Also trust your ears. Professional wedding planners do not look at the prices but listen to the artist's first. On Linkaband, in our wedding musicians search catalogue, our talents leave videos and their playlists on their profiles so that you can enjoy their music, before discussing their price and the different formulas for your private party.

The Duration of the Service

Same for the duration of the service, if you bet on two hours of service for a duo, count 450 euros including tax. While a reasonable price for a quartet will start at 900 euros.

A festive evening’s entertainment can last until the end of the night! Because the ball rarely ends at midnight, don’t be surprised by the ringing of the bells and calculate the duration of the concert you have chosen.

The presence of musicians throughout the day is quite possible! However, plans with the artists include the planning of their performances: the musicians and orchestras, although often exceptional, are not insensitive to fatigue!

The Place of the Reception

If you are getting married in our beautiful France or you need a band in the south of France as in the Ardennes; where even in a big city of Yvelines, we advise you to bet on local artists who are not very far from the wedding venue.

Firstly, it will allow you to save travel costs but also the accommodation of the group and thus not pay a supplement. And secondly, you are doing something for our dear planet which has not been doing very well for some time. How?

By contacting a local group, you limit the CO2 emissions caused by a long journey. Having an eco-friendly soul, Linkaband offers artists throughout France to satisfy everyone and in all French regions. But if the group you want is forced to travel, well, it will be necessary to add to the price of the performance, the travel expenses as well as the accommodation of the music group.

Thus the price for a music group for a wedding in France is as follows: for a two-hour musical performance, a musician is charged 250 euros including tax. For a duo the average price is 480 euros, 700 for a trio or 900 euros for a quartet. The number of musicians is only one criterion among many others (duration, experience) and these prices are given for information only!

Remember that it is more complicated to book a pianist and his piano, or a drummer and his drums. Plans to transport the artists’ sound and light equipment, in case you cannot provide it yourself.
