Why use Function Central?

Ten great reasons to use Function Central for your event.

1. We have the best acts

We hand-pick and vet all our bands, musicians & DJs for reliability and quality before accepting them to our books, so that hiring an act you’ve never seen before isn’t so daunting.

2. We're live music experts

Members of our team have spent years performing in the most sought-after wedding bands and function bands in the UK; they’ll give you expert advice and guidance throughout the booking process and help you find the right act for your event.

3. We're reliable

We book live music for over 3000 customers a year (including approximately 2000 wedding clients) and we receive overwhelmingly positive feedback on the level of our service (read what people say).

4. We have a huge choice of acts

We offer everything from harpists to 13-piece big bands. If you can’t find the music you’re after on this website, let us know and we’ll try and get hold of it.

5. We keep our prices low

We offer cheaper rates for low-season, weekday or last-minute events. Our search tool will always display bands & musicians based in your home region first: choosing an act based near to you ensures a greater proportion of your event budget is spent on quality, and less on transport and overnight accommodation.

6. We price match

We believe our rates are some of the most competitive of any other agency. But if another agent offers you one of our acts at a lower price, or on better terms, we’ll match their offer.

7. We give you peace of mind

It’s extremely rare for a musician or band not to be able to play. But if it happens, we’ll arrange a similar replacement act member or act from the hundreds of live function bands, musicians and DJs available to us, and take care of all the organising for you.

8. We issue legally-binding contracts.

When you book through us, we’ll draw up a comprehensive, legally binding contract between you and the act, written in plain English.

9. Booking is just the beginning

We’ll stay in touch and help with any queries you have before your event. We can also put you in touch with your act before the day, so that you can talk to them directly.

10. We give round-the-clock support.

We are on hand to deal with any last-minute hitches, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our emergency support line is 07816 311 398.
