Choose an Instrumentalist for beautiful instrumental ambiance!

Instrumentalists can offer the perfect type of background music for almost any event and we feel they work perfectly for wedding ceremonies, drink receptions and elegant corporate affairs.  Hiring an instrumentalist usually offers the choice of classical masterpieces from the likes of Bach and Beethoven to modern hits transformed magically into instrumental pieces.

When it comes to choosing an instrumentalist there is a huge amount of choice which can be narrowed down by your favourite instruments.  From the violin, cello and harp of the string instrument variety, to clarinets and Saxophones which are of the Woodwind variety, there really is plenty of choice and each of our instrumentalist’s sub-categories has a number of musicians who cater for all kinds of event.  We even have electric violinists and cellists if you want to keep things more contemporary and modern!

We have Live Bands and Groups for any occasion on our website

Live music is definitely fun for any event and we have lots of live bands and groups to choose from on our entertainment directory. Depending on the type of live band you opt for, they will perform either cover songs, or their own music in a group consisting of a number of instruments and a singer or two!  If you are planning your wedding and looking for evening reception entertainment, there is a whole wedding bands category just you for!  These types of band are very experienced at getting the party started!

The sheer number of live band types will simply astonish you!  For fans of vintage, we not only have Doo Wop / Oldies Bands but Rat Pack Shows and Swing Bands too!  There are over 40 different sub-categories in our Live Bands and Groups section and if you are looking for something that will cater all sorts of events, you can’t go wrong with a Function and Party Band!

If you are a fan of a certain singer, why not look at tribute acts?

Sometimes it can be hard to choose the type of musical entertainment you are wanting to book and if you are planning someone’s birthday party, or perhaps your own you want to try and make sure you choose entertainment that is going to go down a treat.  Why not look at hiring a tribute act of your friends or family’s favourite artist?  Again, we have many to choose from, ranging through all eras including golden oldies Frank Sinatra or Elvis.

If you want something more up-to-date, we have Olly Murs, Robbie Williams, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry to name a few!  So you can be sure that no matter what target age group, we will have a tribute act that will fit perfectly with your event!

Tribute Bands are also available for dedicated fans

Not only do we have Tribute Acts as mentioned above, but we also have over 60 different categories for Tribute Bands!  These work in a similar manner to Tribute Acts, in that they not only try to sound like their muse, but also look like them too.  Let’s face it, not many people can afford to hire the real Take That for their daughter’s birthday party, which is why Tribute Bands are the next best thing!

We are very lucky to have plenty of Tribute Bands listed with us and again they range from older eras to the present day.  From Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy and AC-DC to the more modern Muse, Girls Aloud and One Direction, hiring a Tribute Band will really give you a fantastic evening of entertainment.  Expect most of your favourite songs as a Tribute Band puts on a performance.  If you are looking for something even more vintage, why not take a look at our 1940’s and 1950’s tribute bands for example?

Want something a little more intimate? Choose from our sub categories of singers

If you are not sure what kind of musical entertainment you are looking for, but you know you want something a little more intimate, why not choose from our selection of singers?  These talented individuals range in genre and we have all sorts to choose from.  Not only do we have a massive selection of male singers and female singers, we also have more niched categories such as Opera Singers, Carol Singers and A Cappella Groups!

One of the main benefits in choosing a solo singer for your event is that since we have so many to choose from, their musical sound will vary widely between artists.  This means there is lots of choice and hopefully with our massive entertainment database, you’ll find the perfect singer for you!

Nightclub DJ 

Keep things simple and on budget with one of our many DJs

Another type of musical entertainment which is extremely popular is the humble DJ.   DJ’s are great fun and will play a variety of songs to your guests while bantering with them in-between.  We have 4 subcategories when it comes to DJs: Party DJ’s, Wedding DJ’s, Nightclub DJ’s and Karaoke DJ’s and each one has their own talents.  Wedding DJ’s are a much more affordable option for wedding evening reception than a live band and let’s face it, everyone loves a good disco!

One of the main benefits of hiring a DJ over live music is that their selection of music is much wider.  This is due to the fact that they only need to license the music, rather than learn each individual song, but don’t let that be the only reason you choose a DJ – it is important to make the right decision for your own event.

We have so many musical entertainment options available to you that you are bound to find the perfect choice for your very own event.   Take a look at our range of entertainment on our website today!

Don’t forget that we also offer a massive amount of other entertainment too!  From children’s entertainers, magic and illusion acts and even speciality and variety acts you may not have ever heard of, our website is the biggest entertainment directory on the Internet and we haven’t even told you the best bit yet….  Using our website to source entertainment and book acts is completely free!  We do not charge a booking fee or add any commission!  So why not save time and money and use our website today to get your entertainment needs sorted quickly and easily!
