Guide to booking party bands in Cambridgeshire

Why should I hire a party band in Cambridgeshire for my event?

Between its historic buildings, meandering waterways and headline attractions, the city of Cambridge houses a creative music scene overflowing with talent.

The county that produced artists as varied as Matt Bellamy, Jamie Lidell, DJ Harvey, JLS's Aston Merrygold and Pink Floyd's David Gilmour continues to produce some of the finest bands bands in the UK.

Our Cambridgeshire party bands comprise highly trained, professional musicians who are also charismatic entertainers.

What style of music do your Cambridgeshire bands perform?

We specialise in party bands playing upbeat rock, pop and soul music from the 50s to the present day – these are the most popular genres for parties, corporate events and weddings.

But if mainstream isn't your thing, we also have Latin, ska, ceilidh and jazz bands. If you love the sounds of Motown, R&B and big brass sections how about hiring a soul band?

For something more original, book a brass band.

If you’re not sure what would work best for your event, get in touch with one of our experts, and we’ll find the perfect entertainment for you.

Can you provide background musicians for hire in Cambridgeshire?

This page is dedicated to party bands, but we can also provide musicians during the earlier part of your day, not just at your evening reception.

For a wedding ceremony, you could hire one of our string quartets. For the perfect accompaniment to a cocktail party and drinks receptions, we can provide classical guitarists and pianists.

For a summer garden party or outdoor event, our steel bands and Dixieland jazz bands in are much in-demand!

Do we need to provide any equipment for the band?

All of our bands will come fully equipped for your event, though it's worth getting in touch if you think your event will exceed 250 guests, as extra equipment might then be necessary.

You just need to make sure that the band has a power source to plug in to and a space to perform! We recommend a flat and sheltered stage area of at least 3 x 3 meters for a 3-piece band – then add an extra metre squared per band member that you have booked.

A raised stage is preferable for maximum impact but not essential.

Where do your Cambridgeshire party bands tend to perform?

Our bands have performed all across Cambridgeshire and been part of memorable occasions at venues such as Gamlingay Eco Hub, Cherry Hinton Baptist Church Family Centre, Stilton Pavilion, Nene Valley Community Centre, Ross Street Community Centre, Arkenstall Village Centre, Buckden Millennium Centre, Romsey Mill, Longstanton Village Institute, Coton Village Hall, Shelford Rugby Club, Commemoration Hall Huntingdon, Kimbolton Village Hall, March Golf Club, Waterbeach Village Hall, St Wendreda Church Hall, The Beeches and Benwick Village Hall.

If you're hosting a party at home, that's fine – our bands can work in all spaces, large or small. Let us know your requirements and genre preferences and we'll help you find the perfect band to fit your occasion.

From east of the county to the west, we've enlisted talented musicians that can put on the perfect entertainment for your event.

How can we save money on our Cambridgeshire 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 event date, consider booking a midweek or winter date 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 bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
