Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Brighton

What styles of music do your Brighton wedding bands play?

Our Brighton wedding bands for hire range from rock and pop 3-pieces to no-expenses-spared soul bands complete with vocalists and brass section, via spicy salsa bands and laid-back jazz wedding bands.

They know how to make your wedding reception memorable and get even the shyest guests on the dancefloor.

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 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?

Whatever wedding entertainment you choose, most acts will learn your special song or first dance, even if it’s a birthday party ballad by famous Brighton native Nick Cave or an anti-capitalist anthem by Brighton band The Levellers.

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

If you're after something more mellow for your ceremony or reception, we have Brighton wedding musicians that can provide that too.

Book a string quartet to serenade you down the aisle, then hire a classical guitarist to entertain while your pictures are taken.

You could ask the same musicians to perform at your evening party, as many of our bands provide acoustic options or classical musicians for the quieter moments in your day.

Where in the Brighton area do your wedding bands perform?

With it's rich musical history and contemporary, bohemian lifestyle, Bristol is an irresistible option as a wedding location.

Having witnessed the birth of bands such as The Kooks, Freemasons, Rizzle Kicks, Royal Blood, Fickle Friends and many more, music is undeniably in the very blood of this magical, colorful city.

Our wedding bands have played throughout Brighton and the surrounding area, including Hove, Lewes, Shoreham, Worthing and Eastbourne.

They've graced popular wedding venues such as the The King's Hotel, The Grand (De Vere) and Stanmer House, Buxted Park Hotel, Fabrica, The Old Ship Hotel, Hollingbury Park Golf Course, Wickwoods Country Club, Mid Sussex Golf Club, Hickstead Hotel, The Birch Hotel, Cissbury Barns and Deans Place Hotel.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Brighton 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 Brighton 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 wedding 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 wedding 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.
