Do you have anything planned between 6-8?  I ask that, because if guests are arriving at 5pm and the band won’t start up til 8pm, that’s basically a 3-hour cocktail party.  I think if you arrive and have a set schedule (like first dances, cake cutting, etc.) then it will flow well into the 8pm band.  You might also make sure that the guests know there is a band, or else they might just nosh on appetizers and then leave.

Did you state on your invitation  hors’ doeuvres or are they expecting dinner? Also, at your cocktail tables, you could have a short blurb about the events of the night.  Does that make sense? Similar to someone providing a menu.  You could right a poem about what to expect: cake, first dance, band and dancing.
