Prices for Live Band at Reception

I have read a few reviews lately including live bands and I'm wondering what kind of price range bands charge in this area? We're on a tight budget so I'm not sure we could fit it in but the idea sounds awesome.
Thanks :)

    i am actually really curious about this as wel. Our band quoted us $1,500 but they are friends so im not sure if this is on the high end or low. They are playing acoustic when people arrive, acoustic for cocktail hour, and a five person band during the reception.
    That is the true season of love when we believe that we alone can love, that no one could have ever loved as much before, and that no one will ever love in the same way again

    Who is the band you are going with? I'm interested in a similar "acoustic" for ceremony/cocktail hour and then full band music (covers) for the reception at that price. Would love to check them out!!

    Check out the Fathead Davis Band. They played at our 9/24 wedding and were phenomenal. They'll send you pricing information if you request it. We got lots of compliments. Fathead is also a DJ, so he can DJ part of the night too.
    I thought it was a great choice for the money and you couldn't beat the atmosphere. We booked it last year, and it was $1,500 for a 5-piece band for the night. They also offer a 3-piece band and just Fathead and his keyboard (which is what we used for our ceremony music).
