Dorset wedding bands

The very best live wedding bands in Dorset and the surrounding area, available to hire for any occasion.

Whether you’re planning a lavish wedding extravaganza or a quiet ceremony for friends and family, Function Central has the right Dorset wedding band for you! We have live wedding music in Dorset to suit everyone's tastes, but typically our bands will play upbeat, mainstream rock and pop music 1950s rock'n'roll through to contemporary chart hits. Expect to hear songs by the Beatles, Stevie Wonder and Abba as well as newer hits by famous Dorset residents Madonna, Noel Gallagher and Billy Bragg!

Want to hire a Dorset band, but worried about the price? Function Central’s price promise means you can hire excellent wedding musicians without denting your drinks budget. Our Dorset party bands can adjust to fit your wedding venue by adding members or changing their sound, scaling down to a duo for a tiny venue or adding backing vocalists and brass sections to fill an auditorium.

If you fancy something a bit more original, how about a Dorset jazz band or a ceilidh band? Our swing bands can be great for dancing, as well as creating a sophisticated backdrop for your photographs and drinks reception.

Our Dorset function bands don’t only play at weddings: why not hire a cover band to thank your employees for their hard work at the end of the year, or book a party band for a friend or relative.

Our Dorset wedding bands have frequented every corner of the county from Bournemouth, Poole, Weymouth, Christchurch, Ferndown and Dorchester, to Wimborne Minster, Bridport, Verwood, Blandford Forum, Gillingham, Swanage, Sherborne and Shaftesbury. It's also worth checking out our wedding bands in Hampshire, as well as our wedding bands in Somerset.
