Derbyshire Wedding Bands booking guide

What styles of music do your Derbyshire wedding bands play?

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a romantic wedding requires a great soundtrack, but with so many styles to choose from, where should you start? To get everyone on the dancefloor, hire a Derbyshire wedding band playing classics by The Beatles, Stevie Wonder and current chart hits, and for a quieter, sit-down event, try a wedding singer/Rat Pack tribute act to create a cool and glamorous atmosphere. For a cosmopolitan audience, how about a Latin band, a salsa band or a Caribbean steel band?

We supply live wedding music in Derbyshire to fit every pocket, and our Derbyshire bands for hire can adapt their sound to fit your venue perfectly – whether you’re having a grand opening at a theatre or a wedding reception in a shoebox. What's more, if you find a wedding band on another agency, we will match their price, leaving plenty of your budget left over for the rest of your plans.

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 band’s system is large enough. Most bands 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 band’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 Derbyshire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

For a wedding in Derbyshire, you’ll want musicians fit to play at Pemberley and entertain Mr Darcy! We can supply classical wedding musicians for your ceremony and exciting cover bands and party bands for your evening reception. Choose from a huge range of wedding bands in Derbyshire, who have been hand picked from the competition for their professionalism and talent.

Where in the Derbyshire area do your wedding bands perform?

Our Derbyshire wedding bands have played at a host of classic Derbyshire wedding venues, including Chatsworth, Bolsover Castle, Tissington Hall, Heaton House Farm and Donnington Park. They've also pitched up at most of the towns across the county, including Derby, Chesterfield, Swadlincote, Ilkeston, Long Eaton, Belper, Dronfield, Buxton, Ripley, Staveley, Glossop, Heanor, Bolsover, Eckington, Shirebrook, Matlock, New Mills, Killamarsh, South Normanton and Clay Cross.

Can you offer other styles of music in the Derbyshire 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 function band. It's also worth browsing our wedding soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands. For even more offbeat wedding music 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 wedding date, consider booking a midweek or winter wedding 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 wedding music bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
