Party music suggestions

Function bands come in a bewildering array of shapes and sizes, and the amount of choice can be daunting, so here are some ideas to start you off – from the classic, time-tested sixties cover band to more innovative selections, such as Latin and steel pan duos. All our party entertainment acts will happily adapt to your schedule and music choices, and many can play outdoors as well as inside.

Birthday party music

To get your birthday rocking, how about a tribute act from your favourite era, or a party band that specialises in covers from your favourite musical decade? Younger birthday boys and girls might like to choose from our selection of party DJs, specialising in all kinds of music from Asian to techno and trance.

For quieter birthday celebrations, choose from a wide variety of soloists and groups to fit all venues and budgets; from classical musicians (classical guitarists, harpists, and pianists) to jazz bands and Latin ensembles. All acts hired for meals and drinks parties will provide background music at a non-intrusive volume, so that your guests can chat and mingle.

Wedding anniversary party music

A solo rat-pack style singer or a dinner jazz trio will impress your guests and provide a visual spectacle; if there'll be lots of dancing, a covers band playing your favourite floor-filling tunes might be a better choice.

Garden and outdoor party music

Acts that don’t require power (such as a string quartet, a steel pan duo or a Dixieland jazz band) are useful for outdoor parties.

New Year’s Eve party music

To get the dancing started, choose from our huge catalogue of party bands. They play a broad selection of sixties to naughties classics that are suitable for everyone.

Veer off the beaten track with a country band, ska band or novelty act from our unique and unusual music section, or even a Caribbean steel band complete with limbo dancer! Ceilidh bands get everyone on to the dancefloor and are great for kids.

To carry on partying into the night when the band has played, use a mobile DJ to see you though to the small hours.

Retirement party music

Celebrate leaving the office with a soul band pumping out dance-along funk and soul classics, or chill out with laid back jazz band or country band.

Bar Mitzvahs

We offer everything from traditional Klezmer bands to pop bands and DJs who can play your favourite current chart hits.

Christening party music

Classical musicians can create a relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere for your guests while they wait for the service to start, or provide background music for a lunch or buffet. If you’d like more of a party spirit, try a lively swing band or Latin band.
