Berkshire band hire

Whether it’s a huge outdoor festival, wedding reception or intimate party, Function Central have the finest selection of bands for hire in Berkshire and the surrounding area

Whatever your event, make sure it is memorable with high quality music. Our Berkshire bands cover a variety of styles from across the decades and know how to get your guests out of their seats and onto the dancefloor.

We have picked the best Berkshire party bands for those looking to book something locally to them. Hiring a local band minimises travel costs and tricky logistics – saving you money and hassle. They cover areas including Reading, Slough, Bracknell, Maidenhead, Wokingham, Newbury, Woodley, Windsor, Thatcham, Sandhurst, Crowthorne and Ascot.

To save you booking a DJ, many of our wedding bands offer a full DJ service as part of their package. This enables them to keep your party going during intervals and after their set has finished. Other add-ons include cocktail piano, background jazz music and stripped acoustic sets. Make the most of your booking by spreading the bands’ services throughout the day.

If you’re planning something more intimate, browse our selection of Berkshire jazz bands. A jazz band is ideal for garden parties or smaller functions as they are quick and easy to set-up, without taking up too much space and they generally have lower noise levels. They’ll add a touch of class to your event with jazzy renditions of pop hits as well as classic standards.

Please add your event date and location to check availability.
