Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Glasgow

What styles of music do your Glasgow wedding bands play?

Typically our Glasgow wedding 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 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 Glasgow 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 meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers.

If you're after Glasgow wedding musicians for your ceremony or 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.

Where in the Glasgow area do your wedding bands perform?

Glasgow has a thriving live music scene, and our wedding bands have played at popular venues such as King Tut’s Wah Wah Hut and the Queen Margaret Union as well as throughout the area, including Govanhill, Pollokshields, Partick, Hillhead, Govan, Gorbals, Shawlands and Langside.

We’ve been providing wedding music in Glasgow and throughout Scotland for years, taking over 3000 bookings a year, and our wedding bands have played at all the best wedding venues, such as Pollok House
, Blythswood Square
, Gleddoch House Hotel, David Livingstone Centre
, Sherbrooke Castle, Hotel
 Crowwood, Hotel
, Greenbank Garden and all around the city.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Glasgow 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 Glasgow function bands to meet your wedding music ideas, see our alternative wedding bands section.

If you’re not sure what kind of music you’d like, why not hire a local wedding DJ? Our DJs have over 10,000 songs in all genres, so even the fussiest guest will be able to make a request!

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.

Why book a Glasgow wedding band from Function Central?
