Entertainment for the Evening Wedding Reception
Choosing the right band for your wedding is essential and there are hundreds of bands claiming to be the UK's best function band!
We have carefully selected all the bands on our website so you know you will only be dealing with professionals.
Think about the age-range of your guests –a good pop covers band will offer music from 60s to present day hits.
If you are looking for something a bit different you could book one of our Latin or Salsa bands or even a Ceilidh band.
We also offer Jazz and Swing bands as well as Tribute acts and many more.
We will liaise with your venue to make sure they understand the requirements of the band and discuss the set up times, space requirements and noise limitations with them on your behalf.
Points to consider
- Most wedding venues will ask you to provide Public Liability Insurance certificates of your band or musician as well as PAT Test (electrical safety test) certificates for all their equipment.
- If you are booking a professional band then they will have this, but be wary of booking a pub band as your venue may not allow them to perform if they do not have the relevant paperwork.
- All of our bands have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment.
- Most bands offer 2 x 60 minute or 3 x 40 minute live sets.
- Some bands include a free DJ option and others will let you plug your own iPod into their PA system so you can choose the music to be played in their breaks.
- Lots of bands will ask for a hot meal as part of the booking as they may be at the venue for 6 hours travel time.
- If the band are performing in the room that you and your guests are having the wedding breakfast in, then the band may need to be sound-checked and ready before you have your meal which may incur an early arrival fee.
- Check with your venue to find out if the space for the band is big enough for the band you want to book, especially if you are booking a big soul, funk or Latin band with brass players and backing singers.
- Does your venue have a noise limiter? This isn’t necessarily a problem but it is important that we know.
