There’s no doubt about it, a great function band can make the difference between a so-so party and an amazing, night-to-remember party. That’s why at Entertainers Worldwide we have one of the largest selection of Function & Party bands listed in the world, all ready for you to view and contact direct. But is a function band what you need and with such a glittering selection of bands, how do you choose the right one for you?

Function Band London & South East

Central Avenue - One of the many choices of Function & Party Bands For Hire in London.

Is a Function Band right for my event?

Booking a party band is ideal for larger celebrations and events, any occasion with a bigger venue and plenty of people to entertain. One option, which can work well for your budget if you need all-day entertainment, is to hire a band to play throughout the day, with an acoustic set to create a background to your event. More often bands are used to create the perfect highlight to the celebrations and are brought on later in the day or evening, after the fabulous food, when people are ready to hit the dancefloor.  Bringing on the band beats away that end-of-meal sleepiness and breathes new life, energy and sparkle back into the event, getting everyone tapping their toes and itching to hit the dance floor.

What sort of band do I need?

Here are a few of the things you should consider when booking your band:

Would you prefer a male or female vocalist?

The lead vocalist can change the style of the music, from a smooth male-led ratpack style band, to a soul-singing female-led funk band.

What size band would you like?

Among other considerations this will depend on the size of your event. For more information on this check out our great article Booking a Live Band or Group - The Ultimate Guide!

What musical style will suit your party?

At Entertainers Worldwide we have the most diverse and amazing selection of outstandingly talented bands, covering every music genre – all you have to do is decide what will really suite the mood of your party. Is it a sophisticated jazz and swing event, a funky and fun disco night or even a steam-punk and speakeasy themed event ? Many bands will play a selection of era’s and styles from 60’s, 70s and 80s to modern hits and more.

This article showcases some of our our great selection of US function bands here including the ever popular Orlando based Epic Party Band - one of the growing numbers of function bands for hire in the US listed in our worldwide directory.

For extra fun and to really get your guests involved, some also offer ‘bandaoke’ where you and your friends can do the lead vocals live with the band, karaoke-style! They may also offer a DJ service so that you can carry on with the dancing long after their set is finished. Just ask about these when you book.


The main thing you will need to consider is your budget. The cost to hire a function & party band will vary depending on how big it is, as well as their level of experience. As an overview, a two or three person set-up would be around £300 to £500 in the UK ($500 in the U.S. and €600 in Europe). For a 4 or 5-piece band you can expect to pay between £1000 - £2000 in the UK ($1000-$2000 in the U.S. and 600€-1200€ in Europe). A top quality well known (but not 'famous') band with high calibre musicians and the best equipment will cost anything from £2000 to £10,000 in the UK ($2000 to $10,000 in the U.S. and 2,500€ to 11,000€ in Europe).

There are plenty of other practical considerations that you should keep in mind however when booking a band, from the size of the area you have to the length of the set and your budget, but we’ve got all of this covered in our extensive guide Booking a Live Band.  Just take a look to find out everything you could ever need to know about the when’s, where’s and how’s of hiring one of our amazing acts for your event.

It is also worth considering that most bands will charge more at key times of the year, such as Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

Tru Groove Band
Tru Groove Band - Function / Party Band - Midlands Event Location: ICC Birmingham 6th November 2018
We had the pleasure of having Tru Groove play at our company event this week and I’m so glad we did as they are amazing! The dancefloor was full from start to finish, the set list was great and the sing off was brilliant fun. I’ve had so many of our team come back to me afterwards saying how much they loved the band and it was the best event that we’ve had because of them. I cannot recommend these guys enough – I guarantee you would not be disappointed. Love them! ????

Central Avenue
Central Avenue - Function / Party Band - Guildford, South East Event Location: Guildford 18th March 2018
“Youthful, vibrant, exciting are just a few words to describe the performance of this band. All expert musicians, all with a need to entertain, and entertain they certainly did. Expertly lead by Key player and band leader, Harry Garbutt they reproduced songs from long before their time with great attention to detail. Almost none stop Disco/Boogie/Pop/Funk/Soul for two and a half hours delivered by a trio of eye catching young ladies singing their hearts out, a Rhythm section pumping out a beat to die for, an awesome brass section and tuneful keys leading the line. If you are having a function, a corporate event, a garden party, look no further than Central Avenue to make the event a resounding success – DAVID (Central Avenue playing the Star Inn, Guildford)
