Cheshire Wedding Bands Booking Guide

Where do our Cheshire wedding bands perform?

What style of music do your Cheshire wedding bands play?

Typically our Cheshire wedding bands consist of between three and ten members, and perform well-known rock, pop, soul and Motown covers from across the decades, so that guests of all ages are entertained. But if you’d prefer to avoid the Cheshire cheese we have a huge range of alternative Cheshire bands for hire, including Cheshire ceilidh bands, indie folk bands and acoustic bands. With nearby Manchester’s vibrant music scene providing a wonderful selection of talented musicians, the choice is enormous!

Can we book some different music for the daytime ceremonies too?

The bands listed above are ideally suited to after-dinner dancing at evening receptions, but we also have Cheshire wedding music for your ceremony or drinks party. Hire a wedding singer to set the right tone for your bridal entrance or one of our Cheshire jazz bands for toe-tapping swing music during your reception or wedding banquet. Our Cheshire string quartets, harpists, pianists and classical guitarists will create a joyous atmosphere whilst you sign the register, pose for photos or sip martinis.

Where do your Cheshire wedding bands perform?

Our wedding bands perform regularly throughout Cheshire and beyond, including: Warrington, Chester, Crewe, Runcorn, Widnes, Ellesmere Port, Macclesfield, Northwich, Wilmslow, Winsford, Congleton, Sandbach, Nantwich, Poynton, Neston, Middlewich, Alsager and Knutsford. For a wider choice of Cheshire wedding entertainment options, you can also check out our wedding bands in the West Midlands, our wedding bands in the North West, or our surrounding town and county pages:

Whether you’re hiring a wedding band in Chester or Cheshire, you can rest safe in the knowledge that all our acts have been handpicked and fully vetted before being accepted onto our books, giving you less to worry about on your big day.

Saving tip! 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.

Do we need to provide any equipment for the band?

When you book one of our Cheshire wedding bands, you don’t have to worry about a thing. They’ll provide a professional service from start to finish, and will supply all of their own equipment. Get in touch with us if you are expecting your event to be larger than 200 guests, so we can ensure that the band’s equipment is suitable. For the main show, our bands require a flat and sheltered space in which to perform. The performance area should be 3x3 meters for a 3-piece band, taking allowing an extra metre per band member. You will also need to supply a power source for the band’s equipment.

What kind of time should we plan for the band to perform?

Definitely get in touch with your preferences but, assuming you want the band for after-dinner dancing, two 60-minute sets starting at 9:30pm is a fairly normal timetable to work to when you’re planning your evening. With a 30-minute interval half way through, you’ll be looking at a midnight finish. Please note that if the band or their DJ services are required after midnight, late fees can apply.

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

Will the band need to soundcheck when they arrive?

Prior to the evening’s performance, the band will require a soundcheck. 5pm to 6pm is usually an ideal time, and a 60 to 90-minute window should be sufficient. It’s convenient to have a venue that’s free of guests during this time, but most of our bands can work around this with a ‘noiseless’ line-check if impractical.

What happens to the music when there is an interval in the band’s sets?

Most of our Cheshire bands are happy to play music through their PA system before and after their sets, as well as during their break. Some bands can also offer a proper DJ service, using digital software to mix the songs and take requests.

We would love a particular song as our first dance, can the band play it for us?

Our Cheshire bands will gladly learn and play your first dance. Please give plenty of notice prior to the day so that the band can prepare your request. If it is not possible due to time restraints or the band’s line-up being unable to do the song justice, they will play your first dance via Spotify or an iPod through their PA system.

Is there anything else we need to prepare for the band in advance?

Our bands ask for food and drink on the day, as performing can be hungry and thirsty work! Details will be included in your booking contract.
