Hire a Wedding Band to put on a Performance at your Wedding!

Wedding bands have plenty of experience in performing at weddings and are very talented at getting people dancing too! Performing songs from a number of eras, including many classics from numerous genres, a wedding band will have rehearsed their repertoire over and over again.  Live music is always a winner with events, especially weddings and hiring a live band will give your guests plenty to talk about and are very interactive when it comes to your wedding guests.   Imagine dancing your first dance to a live version of your favourite song?  Then watch as a wedding band asks your other guests to join you on a dancefloor.  We always think that Wedding Bands make perfect entertainment for wedding receptions and they are well worth the costs!  Click here to find a wedding band to perform at your upcoming wedding today!


For a more reasonable alternative, why not choose a wedding DJ?

The next most popular type of wedding evening reception entertainment for many couples is the wedding DJ.   This is usually a more cost-effective choice of entertainment and will offer just as much excitement as a live band.  Wedding DJ’s are very good at bantering with guests and will also take requests.  One of the main benefits of hiring a wedding DJ, over a live wedding band is that their selection of music will be a lot larger, as they only need to license the music rather than having a select repertoire to their name.  A wedding DJ situates themselves in a central location near the dancefloor and sometimes even offers lighting and colourful dancefloors.  Want to find a Wedding DJ near you?

Add some fun and excitement with a barn dance or ceilidh band!

For something completely different, guaranteed to get people dancing – why not look at booking a barn dance band or ceilidh band?  Barn dance bands are a group of musicians that perform melodic music together while all of your guests have a good dance with each other!  A Ceilidh band is traditionally an Irish or Scottish type of entertainment that gets people up onto the dancefloor while performing jigs and other lively types of music.  If you would like to keep things traditional while adding a fun entertainment element to your wedding, click here to find a Barn Dance Band or Ceilidh Band!
