Hmm maybe talk to the owner and see what the band will accept as a tip to come early for your wedding since they’re already doing a gig there. Good luck!!

Yes, talk to the owner and have him talk to the band or put you in touch with them.  I sure you can work something out–hungry musicians will usually jump at another paid gig.

The location sounds like a lot of fun.  Good luck!

You could always have the wedding in the evening and have like a barbeque type reception.  It’s easy to get that catered pretty reasonably — barbeque, slaw, hushpuppies, potato salad, macaroni salad – those types of things.  Then when you get through eating everyone could head inside for the beer and band.  The band would probably be more than glad to come early for your barbeque when they are already booked inside that evening. 

My husband is in the logging business and that sounds like something a bunch of loggers and their girlfriends would really enjoy.  Best of luck with your plans!

Could you corner off (elegantly, of course) an area outside where people can dance? They could still hear the music but have a separate area.
