Hampshire bands for hire

From weddings and small parties to corporate events and student parties, we have the finest bands for hire in Hampshire and the surrounding counties

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.

Our Hampshire wedding bands are an ideal way to make your reception memorable. They play a variety of classic hits from across the decades and give your guests a night they will never forget. You can also reduce costs by using their additional DJ services – they mix songs and take requests to keep the party going until last orders, and to save you booking a separate DJ! Other additional services are available throughout the day, take a look at individual band pages to see what else they can offer.

For more specified occasions such as outdoor summer parties or themed events, we have Hampshire’s top jazz bands for hire. Or if you need something that is engaging and fun for all the family, have a look at our Hampshire ceilidh bands.

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.
