Guide to booking party bands in Gloucestershire

What musical genres do your Gloucestershire party bands perform?

From jive to funk and pop rock to hip-hop, our bands offer an eclectic range of styles in Gloucestershire. Browse our acts in the region to discover each individual act.

Do all your party bands bring their own sound and lighting equipment?

Yes - our Gloucestershire party bands are equipped with their own PA sound system, microphones, amplifiers, and instruments.

What’s included in the quote?

Our quote is typically inclusive of VAT and includes 2 x 60 minute sets (or 3 x 40 minute sets if preferred) with one or two short breaks between sets. It also includes an arrival at 5pm or 6pm (depending on the band) and a 60 minute set up and sound-check, recorded music in the breaks and PLI and PAT certificates on request.

Can you provide background musicians in Gloucestershire?

We certainly can! We can provide everything from acoustic acts for your reception drinks to string quartets for your ceremony and harpists for your corporate drinks reception.

Whatever it is you’re dreaming of, we can provide the perfect backing track for every part of your day.

Where in Gloucestershire have your bands performed?

Our Gloucestershire bands perform within the local area and across the country.

They have performed at some of the premier venues in the county, including Berkeley Castle, Calcot Manor, Charingworth Manor, the Cotswold House Hotel and Clearwell Castle.

They have brought the party to many of the best-known towns and villages in Gloucestershire, including Gloucester, Cheltenham, Kingswood, Filton, Stroud, Yate, Tewkesbury, Cirencester, Frampton Cotterell, Dursley and Innsworth.

How can we save money on our Gloucester band?

If you’re looking to incorporate music during other parts of your day, check that the evening party band of your choice can also offer ceremony or drinks reception performances. Booking just one band will save on travel and accommodation costs.
