What sort of music do our Hampshire party bands play?

We can provide Hampshire party bands for every occasion, from anniversaries and Christmas parties, to birthdays and bar Mitzvahs.

Our Hampshire wedding bands will keep your guests dancing till dawn, typically playing a variety of classic, upbeat hits from every decade – soul, rock, pop, chart and dance and more.

Our band line-ups start with small, guitar-based outfits, usually consisting of 3 or 4 musicians and specialising in rock, pop and indie. Our mid-sized line-ups, usually consisting of 5 to 9 members, include brass sections, keyboards and often the option of both male and female lead vocals. These typically specialise in pop, soul, Motown and dance music. Finally, we have large showbands and jazz orchestras including up to 21 musicians!

Looking for something different? Hire a ceilidh or jazz band in Hampshire

For outdoor summer parties or background music at weddings, hire one of the best jazz bands in Hampshire. They'll help break the ice at dinner, distract guests during photos or lighten the mood at your drinks reception, allowing guests to mingle and chat more freely.

Or if you need something engaging and fun for all the family, have a look at our Hampshire ceilidh bands. They perform a variety of English, Irish and Scottish music – ideal for a knees-up in a barn!

How to save money on your Hampshire party band

If you’re planning an event, avoid the hassle and extra travel costs of booking a band from further afield by seeking out a local act. Our Function Central experts have gathered together the very best that Hampshire has to offer – a top selection of professional function bands appropriate for a range of occasions.

While they are happy travel around the country, booking a southern band saves time, money and complications for both you and the band. Our Hampshire bands cover Southampton, Portsmouth, Basingstoke, Eastleigh, Gosport, Farnborough, Aldershot, Horndean, Winchester, Havant, Fareham, Andover and Fleet.

It's also worth checking out other bands for hire across the south east:

Lastly, take advantage of the band's acoustic or jazz sets in the afternoon, or their in-house DJ service later in the night. Since the musicians will be on site anyway, they can usually often these services at half the cost of booking an additional act.
