Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Berkshire

What styles of music do your Berkshire wedding bands play?

Typically our Berkshire wedding bands will perform a wide range of the best-known popular music from every decade, to ensure no-one is left out – from teenagers through to (great-) grandparents.

A typical set might include genres as varied as 50s rock'n'roll, 60s Motown and 80s pop funk, rounded off with a healthy dose of 90 Britpop anthems and current chart.

If you'd prefer a band dedicated to a specific artist or decade (or another genre entirely, such as folk or swing), fear not, we have that too. Just have a browse of our menus at the top of this page.

Where in Berkshire have your wedding bands played?

The county that gave us the Reading festival, the oldest rock and pop music festival in the world, is a fitting place for a raucous musical knees-up.

Our wedding bands have played in all major centres across Berkshire, including Slough, Bracknell, Maidenhead, Wokingham, Newbury, Woodley and Windsor.

We've also sent wedding bands to smaller towns and villages including Thatcham, Sandhurst, Crowthorne, Twyford, Wraysbury, Sunninghill, Hungerford and Datchet.

Of course, if you prefer the refined to the raucous that's possible too. Berkshire has a host of beautiful wedding venues fit for the upper classes. From the Royal Ascot Racecourse to Eton College, our bands have seen them all.

Some of our favourite venues in the area include Highclere Castle, Clivedon, Monkey Island and the Royal Adelaide Hotel.

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, microphones, backline amplifiers and instruments. This works really well for most marquee or indoor weddings.

Let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the act’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 Berkshire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Yes! We can provide Berkshire wedding musicians covering every genre and every part of your day.

Hire a classical guitarist to perform for your ceremony then a wedding jazz trio for your drinks reception.

Later on, warm up your guests for the main act with a wedding singer.

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

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

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

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

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

How can we save money on our wedding band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your party band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.

If you haven't yet set your date, consider booking a midweek or winter celebration to take advantage of the most competitive rates.

Always consider hiring a band from your local area, to save on travel and accommodation costs.

We have acts based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
