Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Hampshire

What styles of music do your Hampshire wedding bands play?

Typically our Hampshire 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 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 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 Hampshire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Most bands listed here are suitable for late night partying and dancing, but we can also provide Hampshire wedding musicians for your ceremony, reception or wedding banquet.

How about a harpist or string quartet for your bridal entrance and exit, then a wedding jazz band to help break the ice at your drinks party.

An acoustic duo is a fantastic warm-up for the main act, whilst steel pan bands are ideal for garden receptions.

Where in the Hampshire area do your wedding bands perform?

Whether your preference is Craig David, Foxes, Matt Cardle, Aqualung or Wildchild, there is plenty of musical heritage and variety to enjoy in the rich, royal history of Hampshire.

Our wedding bands love to channel that past and put on a great show at any reception across the heaths, woods and chalky downs of Hampshire.

So far, they have performed at venues throughout Hampshire, including Cain Manor, Botleys Mansion, Audley Woods Hotel, Tournerbury, Guildford Manor Hotel, The Potters Heron, Farnham Castle, Highfield Park and The Mill House Hotel.

Our wedding bands comprehensively cover the county, performing in Southampton, Portsmouth, Basingstoke, Eastleigh, Gosport, Farnborough, Aldershot, Horndean, Winchester, Havant, Fareham, Andover, Fleet, Totton, Hedge End, Stubbington, Hythe, New Milton, Emsworth, Alton, Romsey, and the Isle of Wight.

They will also travel UK wide and internationally.

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

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

For even more offbeat wedding music ideas, see our alternative wedding bands 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 a date, consider booking a midweek or winter celebration to take advantage of the most competitive rates.

Always consider hiring an act from your local area, to save on travel and accommodation costs. We have bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
