The Wandering Lights

from£490

This is the act's lowest available price for a local performance by their smallest line-up. It does not include any travel costs.

Please note that many acts charge higher rates for events taking place on summer Saturdays.

The Wandering Lights play catchy acoustic pop with a folksy feel by artists as diverse as Avicci, Blackstreet, Mumford & Sons and R Kelly.

They can be booked in several formats, ranging from completely unplugged to evening party sets for dancing, with PA and full drum kit.

Their roaming line-up features vocals, upright bass, acoustic guitar and snare around the neck. The idea is they can wander freely around your venue, mingling with guests – no trailing cables, lighting rigs or bulky equipment here, and no need for power or a stage. Just great acoustic music your guests can talk over, sing or dance along to!

The band's electric line-up includes full drum kit, backline and PA for an amplified party set. Perfect, for evening events requiring a exciting, lively band for dancing and fast-becoming one of our most popular wedding function bands in London.

The Wandering Lights injected so much atmosphere and energy and made our first dance one of the most memorable parts of our day! Sarah & Martin, Wedding, West Midlands, February 2018

The musicians in the band have years of experience performing in function bands, with corporate clients including the Ministry of Defence, The British Plastics Federation and Yorkshire Gas.

As individuals, they've played at hundreds of weddings at well-established venues such as Somerset House, Eltham Palace, Kenwood House, Pembroke Lodge, Shepperton Studios and London Zoo.

In addition, musicians in the band have toured, recorded and performed with numerous original artists including folk singer Josh Bray, Cavalier, 6 Day Riot, Kareem, Jeremy Warmsley and Adam Parker.

They've released two independent singles and are regulars at several top UK festivals including Latitude, The Great Escape, Lounge on the Farm and Kendal Calling.

Please note, if you'd like the band to perform in one fixed location, rather than roam, we strongly advise booking them with their PA (since unamplified vocals and acoustic instruments won't project far from their source).

“I just wanted to let you know how much we and all the guests at our wedding loved The Wandering Lights! You gave us a fantastic roaming performance and we loved every minute! Please pass on our thanks to the rest of the band. I hope to see you some time in the not too distant future.”

“We wanted to have a band at our wedding that was good and entertained all our guests. We underestimated how fantastic The Wandering Lights were. We booked the band's acoustic unplugged set earlier in the day and they stayed on to play in the evening. Our guests from young to old were dancing throughout the night. Everyone said they were the best band they had seen, how amazing they were and where did we find them. The Wandering Lights injected so much atmosphere and energy and made our first dance one of the most memorable parts of our day!”

“The band were absolutely brilliant they were at our wedding! They came in and set up without any fuss (hardly even noticed they were there). The first song they had learnt for us was amazing, and then straight into their first set which had everyone up on the dance floor, well for the rest of the night! They really exceeded all expectations and everyone was raving about how good they were, they really made our evening reception unforgettable so a big thank you!”

“We booked The Wandering Lights for our wedding reception and couldn't have been happier. It really made our wedding day that they were able to play our first dance for us and the rest of the set was packed with great songs that had everyone dancing. Their vocalist is incredible, but the whole band were fantastic, I know from speaking to them before the wedding how hard they rehearse and it really paid off. We have had great feedback from our guests and we would not hesitate to recommend the band. Thank you.”

“What can we say, The Wandering Lights were first class! They are an excellent band with first rate service from start to finish and blend so well as a group. We booked the band for the evening party and they got the whole dance floor up and moving and we had so many comments on the night about how fantastic they were. We are still getting comments now and I expect that will always continue! They were the perfect choice for our wedding reception, the mix of music they played was brilliant and they managed to incorporate some of our requests which made it very special. We will never forget out first dance, Stuck in the Middle with You, Steelers wheel, it was perfect and is such a long lasting memory, we were so happy they could play it live for us, it made the night! The band sound and look great, we can't recommend them highly enough and hope we are lucky enough to find ourselves at someone else's party or wedding reception where they might be playing in the future. Many thanks once again, service from start to finish with Function Central was also excellent and I will recommend you and The Wandering Lights to anyone looking for a reliable, quality service and great music!”
