Booking a wedding band in Cardiff?

Our wedding bands in Cardiff, Swansea and Newport have the talent and experience to make your event truly memorable. We have bands to suit every taste and venue, whether you’re celebrating a marriage in the Millennium Stadium or a christening in a cubby hole.

Cardiff’s exciting music scene means its wedding bands are special, so we’ve picked the best and put them at your fingertips. On each band profile on our website you’ll find videos, images and reviews, so that you can make sure you make the most informed choice possible.

Most of our bands in Wales play upbeat, mainstream pop hits from all decades and feature a male or female lead vocalist – they’re experts at whipping the crowd into a frenzy and keeping the dancefloor full all night. Some will even make space for classic hits by Cardiff natives Shirley Bassey and Shakin’ Stevens! But if pop isn't your thing, hire a Cardiff band playing Latin, soul, Motown and jazz.

We don’t just provide bands for dancing. If you’re after wedding musicians for your ceremony or reception, how about a Cardiff jazz band to play relaxing background music whilst your guests sip martinis. Our string quartets in Cardiff are always popular – many of them play arrangements of the latest pop songs, as well as classical music.

Our wedding bands play throughout Cardiff, Newport, Swansea and South Wales, and have graced the best wedding venues in the area, such as Chepstow Racecourse, Craig-y-Nos Castle, Canada Lodge, Buckland Hall, St David's Hotel & Spa, Home Farm, Glanusk Estate, The Park House Club, St Mellons Hotel, the Cardiff Marriott and Gliffaes Country House.

Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Cardiff

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

All our wedding 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.

But let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the band’s system is large enough. Most acts will also bring lighting for both the stage and dancefloor.

Check the band'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 Cardiff wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Wedding music isn’t just about the final party.

If you're looking for background music to accompany your drinks reception or wedding meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers.

If you're after Cardiff wedding musicians for the bridal entrance, exit or the signing of the register, our harpists or string quartets are a popular choice to make those moments extra special.

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

We don’t just provide Cadiff function bands for dancing - if you’re after wedding musicians for your ceremony or reception, how about a jazz band to play relaxing background music whilst your guests sip martinis.

Our string quartets are always popular – many of them play arrangements of the latest pop songs, as well as classical music.

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 wedding 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 bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
