Would obviously depend on your taste but Doctor and Black are quite entertaining bands. Daddy used to be good when Gayan was around. I wouldn't recommend Misty though, after few disappointing performances at functions.

Try Allegro band, played at my sister's wedding. I recommend them. They play sinhala, english, hindi, sinhala nonstop and all other requested songs. Affordable and professional. You can Call Indika 077 248 31 45. Also Check their site www.indikanishantha.com

I would recommend Black. Coz Ranil is one of the best in crowd handling after Nalin Perera. But their prices are a bit high. Fair enough coz they've been in the industry for a long time and got a lot of experience and also they maintain a very high standard. Then again, if you are looking for a younger crowd, then Doctor is good. Then there are other bands such as Kurumba. Their rate is somewhere around 120,000 for the full band. Quite reasonable for the music quality. Then there's another upcoming band called Chain who follows a lot from Marians and Black when it comes to keeping the party alive. Their rates are very reasonable and also they play a lot of oldies hits. Amazing work given that they are a very young crew. Check them out.

Yes Chain is a good upcoming band. They follow a lot of oldies hard rock. They once played November rain at a wedding and they nailed it. Well the vocals was nothing similar to Axl Rose coz their vocalist got a very rough tone more of a blues rock tone. But it was pitch perfect, they also nailed Layla by Eric Clapton and many many oldies hits. I'd recommend them to anyone looking for a new band.

Hi,
do you know of a band called Misty? Would you you recommend them?

A

Arundathi Wickramaratne

Yes. Misty is a really good band. But what I'm in comparison is that Chain is a good upcoming band given that their team is very young. So for a crew like that to have a good taste in music such as really really old songs is a wonderful thing. I'm in my late 40s now and you can imagine the type of music that I'm referring to. I wouldn't waste my time writing reviews or giving recommendations on anything to anyone. But I'm seeing a lot of potential in them. Reminds me of the times when Nadeeka Guruge was playing with Black. He introduced black to being more western than local. Now look at them. You can't compare this Chain band to some of the most experienced and old bands. But my point is that they are making their way for it with great music and showmanship.

Chain Entertainments

Gamini and Arundathi, thank you very much for your lovely recommendations. We did not know our name was recommend until few of our clients told us they went through yamu.lk reviews. But please, we are not to be compared with the very senior and skilled bands you have mentioned. We really appreciate your encouraging words. We are glad to hear that you enjoyed our music to this extent.

Hope we'll meet again.

Sincerely,
Chain

I think Chain is a good upcoming band. I have seen them playing few times. Couple of days back they played at a friend's homecoming and it was blast. Wonderful music they got. I even know their lead vocalist a little. My sister's wedding is coming up, and I'm thinking of booking these guys. Their prices also are reasonable.

That's their page

Hi Shanil, Did you book Chain? How was the band? :)

Shanil

Yes I got them booked. Did an amazing job. These guys lack in their social media marketing. The crew is superb. Very friendly. They got some strict regulations which they do not divert from for any reason. But I think that's alright. I think that's the reason they are able to maintain their standard. You'll not regret booking them. But let me warn you. These guys go real nuts on the stage. :D :D

Contact Chain…. They cover all kinds of live events….

One of my friends had them for his homecomig and it was superb. They have a full 6 piece band and an additional Sax player if you request them. They also have the DJ.

I got their 4 piece for a small drinking session at my house. They nailed it. It was a full English session and they had a Rythm, Bass and Cajon and vocals. They are not very popular, but a superb band I would recommend for anyone.

I think they have the contact details on their FB page.

Nithin's Chord, D major, Black, Misty, Flame, and Doctor bands are rocking these days.

I've seen them. You are right, Not very popular. I wonder why they don't do a bit of marketing and upload few good quality videos. The videos on their page and youtube are old. like dinosaur old. lol. Live of course, they do a pretty neat job. I've seen them once at a house party. Played a lot of songs that you don't hear these days. The music is uncommon.

What's so special with this band. I haven't seen them live. I watched some of their videos on the page. Nothing surprising. I heard their vocalist came to the show bizz from hard rock. Is that true? But I have heard people talking so high of them. Their rates are reasonable it seems. But the question is, are they really good as people say? Even I'm looking for band for my wedding. Just can't figure out which to go with because these popular bands are asking for a fortune. Is there anyone who's got live videos of these guys?

I booked them for my homecoming on 2018 Jan. Saw them at my colleague's wedding few months ago. The guys are crazy you know. In a good way. Their only downfall is that they don't have a female vocalist. But for my homecoming I don't have any female songs requested. Plus they are fully flexible with the songs you give. For my event the I gave them the whole list except for non-stop songs. They just agreed to play. I'm was surprised, coz no other band I spoke to agree on playing most of the songs I asked them. Anyways, hope I won't regret this. :)

Hi! I recently got married and I got CHAIN to play at my wedding. I am so glad that I made that choice. I heard about them from this very own thread on Yamu.lk. They were really good. All my friends still talk about that band when we meet up. We requested some of my wife's favorite songs and they played them all. Their prices were very reasonable too.
I also really liked how they met me and my wife in person prior to the wedding and discussed our requirements so that everything would be perfect!!! I would recommend CHAIN to anyone who is looking for a super awesome wedding band. Go check their page on facebook. https://www.facebook.com/ChainSrilanka/

They are quite good at that customer service end. My boss had got them for her wedding and they did a quite amazing job there. They got that showmanship. They keep a good reputation for their name with how crazy they are. lol. I spoke to them after the event to check the prices for my wedding in December. Unfortunately they were booked. the guys were really friendly and plus the vocalist gave me few tips in organizing my wedding as well hahaaa… Quite helpful though.

All in all, I'd recommend them. Too bad I cant get them booked. :(

Best of the best wedding bands as per my knowledge who plays quality music for the price they charge.

Marians https://www.facebook.com/mariansmusicalband/
Black https://www.facebook.com/thebandblack/
DMajor https://www.facebook.com/hectordiasdmajor/
Misty https://www.facebook.com/Mistysmusic/
C-Plus https://www.facebook.com/Cpluschandu/
Kings https://www.facebook.com/kingsthedanceband/
Doctor https://www.facebook.com/Doctor.SL/
Kurumba https://www.facebook.com/kurumbamusic/
Infinity https://www.facebook.com/InfinitySL/
Chain https://www.facebook.com/ChainSrilanka/

Anything out of this list, I would not recommend. They may be a little expensive, but their quality says why they charge that price. These bands are made for the job.

Hahaaaa you got all of them in order of their rates. That's some research. I can agree with you. All these bands are really good and some of the bands such as Chain, Kings, C-Plus and Misty are specialized for weddings and parties itself. I have seen all of these bands in action at weddings and parties. My favourits are Chain and Misty. It's like two different generations one being a very young crew and the other being a very senior crew, but performing their hearts out.

If you are looking for a young crew who are excellent on the stage, then you should try the following bands.

Doctor
Kurumba
Wings
Chain
Infinity

I like them all. But I just got one thing to say about Infinity. Their music is good, but the voices are not that great. Their voices and how they tone them and pronounce some of the lyrics is annoying. Maybe it's just me. But it's what I see.

N

Nadee

What you say is right. Infinity's music is okish. But the singing is not what I expected. Just bland. The voices don't have that wow factor. The drummer also is a bit off sometimes. There are better bands for the price these guys charge. The guys are obviously talented. But even I feel there's something off about them. Seems like they are highly overrated.

I would Always recommend Kurumba. They have an amazing set of Enlgish and Sinhala songs. Devshan and Dushyanth does an amazing job in gaging the crowd.

Jason

That's a lot of bands. I think can agree with Denver. Those bands are good and they are good for a reason. Plus if you are to book them, at least book an year prior because their calendars fill up pretty fast. I mean all of them.

Can someone tell me a bit more about this band Chain? Surely I can see many good reviews, but can someone tell me something solid about them? I'm responsible for music and entertainment at my sister's wedding. It's in Jan 2019. Is it too early to book a band? and also please tell me more about this group.

S

Samadhi

Don't know much about them. But it's best to book everything at least 8 to 10 months prior to the wedding. Then you have enough time for discussions and get things done the way you want. I'd personally recommend Kurumba.

Ok so I have to write this because if I don't it's really unfair. My wedding was last month and just like most of people I looked at reviews here. So I booked Chain. I wasn't sure if they would keep up to their reputation as said here. To my surprise, they did an amazing job. Me and my husband personally spoke to them even after the function and got to know a lot about them on a personal level. This band is a very friendly group of people and with a lot of talent and skill. Their colour is way way different to many bands I have seen in Sri Lanka. I really had doubts when I did the booking, but I still went ahead with my gut feeling. Didn't regret a cent I spent for them. Oh ya and they are expensive. :D Plus they have a set of terms and regulations that they do not divert from for any reason. They strictly abide by those. I think that is one reason of their service quality. This is more than music I'm writing about. This is about the overall service quality from the moment I did the inquiry till the event was completed. The whole band goes crazy on the stage and they keep up to their name. Their music is different. Sound is a bit loud but you don't feel it annoying because of their colour. The voices are wonderful. It's overall a perfect service given by the band. I decided to write this here because I took the advice from the reviews here when I booked them. So I have to do the justice.

This is soooo true! Their service is outstanding. Only thing I kind of didn't like was their regulations. Bit too strict with those. But they are extremely customer friendly plus the communications is top notch. They responded to every call and SMS on time and I wasn't worried just like I was with the other service providers not responding. They even contacted me after the wedding and asked how we enjoyed the music and all. No one does that here. I lived a good amount of my life in Canada, I haven't seen such a superb service there even. What you said was absolutely correct. It's not just about music. Thank you Yamu.lk and everyone who recommended them.
