Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Bedfordshire

Hiring a live band for a wedding reception can be a stressful experience. With so many wedding bands in Bedfordshire and its neighbouring counties, how do you know which to choose?

What styles of music do your Bedfordshire wedding bands play?

Function Central specialises in Bedfordshire wedding bands to suit all tastes and all pockets.

Our speciality is rock and pop function bands to help you dance the night away following the formalities of your ceremony and reception.

These bands play uptempo, mainstream party tunes to suit all ages and are usually fronted by a male or female vocalist.

Do all your wedding bands bring their own sound and lighting equipment?

All our bands for weddings are fully self-contained with their own PA sound system, microphones, backline amplifiers and instruments. This works really well for most marquee or indoor weddings.

But let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the band’s system is large enough. Most bands will also bring lighting for both the stage and dancefloor.

Check the act's individual profile for more details and optional add-ons to enhance the show!

Can your wedding bands learn a special song for our first dance?

Most bands will be happy to learn and perform your first dance request – provided they think they can arrange it for their line-up and do it justice!

Check the act’s profile to see what they can offer and if they can’t do it live, they could just play it through their PA system using Spotify or an mp3 player.

Can you also provide Bedfordshire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Need music for the afternoon as well? You’ve come to the right place.

Function Central can provide classical Bedfordshire wedding musicians to walk down the aisle to as well as wedding jazz bands to help lighten the mood at your reception or wedding banquet.

If your tastes are more mainstream, hire an acoustic duo to serenade you with your favourite song.

Where in the Bedfordshire area do your wedding bands perform?

With it's beautiful stately homes, ancient woodlands, and the gently rolling Chiltern Hills, Bedfordshire is a fine place to tie the knot.

Our Bedfordshire wedding bands have performed at stunning venues such as The Grange and Cavendish Country House, Skylark Farm, Putteridge Bury, Shuttleworth, Bushey Country Club and Aldwickbury Park Golf Club.

Our bands serve towns and villages across the county, including: Luton, Dunstable, Leighton Buzzard, Kempston, Houghton Regis, Biggleswade, Flitwick, Sandy, Ampthill, Stotfold, Shefford, Cranfield, Barton-le-Clay, Bromham, Arlesey, Potton, Toddington, Wootton and Marston Moretaine.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Bedfordshire area, such as ceilidh, steel pan or jazz bands?

We love it when people get creative with their wedding themes and music.

Check out our brass and drums bands for an increasingly popular and refreshing alternative to the classic Bedfordshire function band.

It's also worth browsing our soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands.

For even more offbeat wedding music ideas, see our alternative wedding bands section.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

Venues and budgets vary a lot!

If you don’t quite have enough of one or the other, get in touch and we’ll see if your favourite Bedfordshire wedding band can still work with you – for example, by playing with fewer members or performing for you in low season.
