Band Booking Agency

Function Central is the band booking agent to call if you’re planning a special event: we are the highest quality band booking agent in the country because we only use the most talented and professional bands!

We take over 1500 wedding bookings a year, and our party bands and corporate function bands are incredibly popular, with many being booked over and over again by the same delighted clients. We specialise in young, flexible, bands with real "wow" factor whose main remit is simply to fill dancefloors and entertain. We're also one of the most affordable band booking agencies in the UK – with high quality, professional bands based throughout the UK. Many of our bands offer great deals on their "in-house" band DJ service, which can save you the cost of hiring a separate DJ to fill in the gaps between band sets.

All function bands and musicians that work for our band booking agency are young enough to love what they do, but experienced enough to know exactly how to get even the shyest guests grooving. We have something for everyone, whether you’re looking for celebratory ceilidh, birthday bouzouki or party polka! If you’re not sure what kind of music would be best for your event, how about contacting one of our expert band booking agents? They can take you through the options and help you hire the best band to impress your guests.
