Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Birmingham

What styles of music do your Birmingham wedding bands play?

Our Birmingham wedding bands will typically perform the best of rock, pop and soul music over the last few decades – ideal for guests of all ages.

All line-ups include a lead vocalist and vary from compact 3-pieces right through to 8-piece show bands.

Hire a guitar-based band for uptempo rock and indie anthems, or a band with keyboards and synths if you prefer 80s music or mainstream pop.

Bands with brass sections are ideal for funk, soul and Motown.

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

All our bands 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.

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 Birmingham wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

If you’d prefer something a little more laid back, we have jazz bands to give your event a classy touch.

For events on a tight budget or in a small venue, we’d recommend a wedding singer or DJ.

Our Birmingham wedding musicians can provide all the excitement and spontaneity of live music without breaking the bank (or the sound barrier).

Where in the Birmingham area do your wedding bands perform?

With it's rich musical heritage boasting bands from UB40, Duran Duran, ELO, The Moody Blues and The Streets, Birmingham has been a musical mecca for many decades.

From New Hall Hotel, Fazeley Studios, Edgbaston Park, Highbury Hall and The Best Western Westley to the Botanical Gardens, Weatheroak Hall and The Westmead Hotel, it's always a great celebration!

Our bands have played throughout the city and beyond, including: Edgbaston, Solihull, Stourbridge, Yardley, Kidderminster, Walsall, Wolverhampton, Bromwich, Coventry, Dudley, and throughout the West Midlands.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Birmingham area?

This section is dedicated to after-dinner wedding entertainment - for dancing, singing and celebrating.

But we also have Birmingham function bands for your ceremony, drinks reception or wedding banquet.

Why not hire a string quartet or harpist for your bridal entrance and exit, then guitarist or acoustic duo for your wedding banquet.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your 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 occasion 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.
