Guide to booking party bands in Hertfordshire

Why should I hire a party band in Hertfordshire for my event?

Within a stone's throw of the world-famous London music scene and boasting an artistic heritage of its own, Hertfordshire is alive with creative potential - whatever style of band you're looking for.

From Deep Purple to Sarah Brightman, Enter Shikari, The Zombies and Friendly Fires, Hertfordshire beats with a diverse, creative heart and is well-represented in our roster.

Having scoured the county for the most proficient performers in every genre, we're confident that you won't do better than hiring one of our party bands in Hertfordshire.

What style of music do your Hertfordshire bands perform?

We specialise in Hertfordshire bands playing upbeat rock, pop and soul music from the 50s to the present day – these are the most popular genres for parties, corporate events and weddings.

But if mainstream isn't your thing, we also have Latin, ska, ceilidh and jazz bands. If you love the sounds of Motown, R&B and big brass sections how about hiring a soul band?

For something more original, book a brass band.

If you’re not sure what would work best for your event, get in touch with one of our experts, and we’ll find the perfect entertainment for you.

Can you provide background musicians for hire in Hertfordshire?

This page is dedicated to party bands, but we can also provide Hertfordshire musicians during the earlier part of your day, not just at your evening reception.

For a wedding ceremony, you could hire one of our string quartets. For the perfect accompaniment to a cocktail party and drinks receptions, we can provide classical guitarists and pianists.

For a summer garden party or outdoor event, our steel bands and Dixieland jazz bands in are much in-demand!

Do we need to provide any equipment for the band?

All of our bands will come fully equipped for your event, though it's worth getting in touch if you think your event will exceed 250 guests, as extra equipment might then be necessary.

You just need to make sure that the band has a power source to plug in to and a space to perform! We recommend a flat and sheltered stage area of at least 3 x 3 meters for a 3-piece band – then add an extra metre squared per band member that you have booked.

A raised stage is preferable for maximum impact but not essential.

Where do your Hertfordshire party bands tend to perform?

Our party bands have performed all across Hertfordshire and played a range of styles and genres at events at venues including Potten End Village Hall, Hertford Castle, St Albans Museum and Gallery, Berkhamsted Bowls & Croquet Clubhouse, The Forum, Bishop's Stortford Football Club, The Mill Bridge Rooms, Cheshunt Country Club, Manuden Village Community Centre, Pioneer Hall, Bushey Hall Golf Club, Flaunden Village Hall, The Crown St Albans, Hunsdon Village Hall and Old Albanian Sports Club.

We regularly arrange for bands to perform in your own private space as well, such as a marquee or out-house, so let us know any ideas you have for celebrating and we'll find the perfect band to fit your occasion.

From the east of the county to the west, we've enlisted talented musicians that can put on the perfect entertainment for your event.

How can we save money on our Hertfordshire band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.

If you haven't yet set your event date, consider booking a midweek or winter date to take advantage of the most competitive rates.

Consider hiring a band from Hertfordshire or the surrounding area, to save on travel and accommodation costs.
