Where do I find Wedding Bands on your Website?

Finding wedding bands is really easy when you use our website – simply look for the live bands section and you’ll see “wedding bands” listed as a subcategory. Here, we have wedding bands from all over the World!

What do Wedding Bands Actually Do?

The wedding band niche is very varied, however one thing is kept the same between bands – wedding bands play live music to your guests and get them up on the dance-floor! Wedding bands are generally well rehearsed in talking to the audience between songs and have a certain way of bringing guests out of their shells. Playing a variety of musical genres, wedding bands play live instruments and are sometimes accompanied by a singer.

How Long will Wedding Bands Perform For?

Wedding bands can easily perform for a few hours with breaks in-between. With plenty of experience of playing at weddings, wedding bands are used to performing for a whole evening from the Bride and Groom’s first dance to the last! Always check with your chosen performer to ensure that they will cover the length of your upcoming wedding.




How Much does a Wedding Band Cost?

The price to hire a wedding band vary widely depending on the musical genre, level of experience and location. Expect bands that are popular to get booked up quickly, so always contact them with plenty of notice before your big day. Certain dates of the year may also push up prices, such as Christmas Eve and New Years Eve.

What Should I Ask a Wedding Band?

Firstly, always check that a wedding band has the necessary public liability insurance to cover their equipment and of course your guests. We have put together a list of questions that you might find useful when making your enquiries:

  • Are you available to perform on my wedding date?
  • How much space do you need for your instruments and equipment?
  • Do you provide your own PA equipment/ speakers?
  • How long will you perform for?
  • How much do you charge and how much of a deposit do you need to secure my date?
  • What type of music do you play?
  • Can you play requests?
  • Do you have any video samples of your performances?

These are just a few ideas, so don’t be afraid to throw your own questions into the mix.

How do I Choose a Wedding Band?

Choosing a wedding band comes down to personal taste depending on the type of music you wish to be played at your evening reception.
