Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Gloucestershire

What styles of music do your Gloucestershire wedding bands play?

Whether you want a swing band, Elvis tribute act or barn dance band, we can help you find just the right Gloucestershire wedding band to make your event perfect.

For a dance-along soundtrack for your reception, how about a hiring a soul band?

If you’re looking for something a little more laid-back, or to accompany your wedding ceremony, how about a jazz band, steel band or Rat Pack tribute?

They can adapt to fit your budget, too, adding members for a fuller sound or playing to a backing track to reduce their fees.

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 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 Gloucestershire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

This listing page is dedicated to bands, but we also have a vast selection of Gloucestershire wedding musicians for ceremonies and receptions, from classical wedding musicians such as solo harpists, pianists and guitarists to string quartets and wedding singers.

Where in the Gloucestershire area do your wedding bands perform?

Our Gloucestershire wedding bands perform UK wide as well as locally.

They've performed at some of the best-known in the county, including Berkeley Castle, Calcot Manor, Charingworth Manor, the Cotswold House Hotel and Clearwell Castle.

They've also performed in most of the best known towns and villages, including Gloucester, Cheltenham, Kingswood, Filton, Stroud, Yate, Tewkesbury, Cirencester, Frampton Cotterell, Dursley, Innsworth, Bishop's Cleeve, Downend, Thornbury, Cinderford, Lydney, Nailsworth, Staple Hill, Stonehouse and Chalford.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Gloucestershire 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 Gloucestershire function band.

It's also worth browsing our soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands.

For even more offbeat wedding music ideas, see our alternative wedding 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 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 bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
