Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Cumbria

If you’re getting married in the Lake District, you’ll want music that is romantic enough to impress the Lake Poets! Our classical musicians can play all your favourite wedding music, including Parla Mi D’Amore, the Wedding Dance from Swan Lake, the Bridal Chorus from Lohengrin and many others, recreating the sounds that William Wordsworth would have loved. If you’d like something more original for your ceremony, why not try a Cumbria steel band or jazz band?

What styles of music do your Cumbria wedding bands play?

Typically our bands perform a broad range of up-tempo, mainstream rock, pop, soul and chart music from the 1950s to the present day.

You’ll hear music designed to keep everyone on the dancefloor and appeal to all ages.

Our bands cover artists form The Beatles, Elvis, Queen, Prince and Oasis to Bruno Mars, The Weeknd and Dua Lipa.

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.

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 Cumbria wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

We have wedding musicians in Cumbria to suit all tastes, from classical to modern.

You can hire a guitarist, pianist or harpist to serenade you during your drinks reception and photographs, then hire a party band to entertain your guests at your reception.

Where in the Cumbria area do your wedding bands perform?

Our Cumbria wedding bands come in all shapes and sizes, from solo singers with backing tracks to soul and funk bands with horn sections.

Our acts have played in the majority of local venues, including Langdale Chase Hotel, Westmorland Hotel, Stonecross Manor Hotel and Augill Castle.

In fact, our we've sent wedding bands to every corner of the county including Carlisle, Barrow-in-Furness, Kendal, Workington, Whitehaven, Penrith, Dalton-in-Furness, Maryport, Ulverston, Windermere, Keswick and Grange-over-Sands.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Cumbria 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 Cumbria 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 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 acts based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
