Guide to booking wedding function bands in Kent

What type of music do your Kent wedding bands play?

Since weddings are cross-generational events, our Kent wedding bands usually perform a wide range of music through the decades.

A typical wedding set-list will likely include a mixture of mainstream, uptempo rock, pop, soul, Motown & R&B – music to appeal to all tastes and ages.

That said, we don't want to deny you the barn dance or retro wedding you've always dreamed of – browse the genre menu at the top of this page for more specialist options!

Do your Kent wedding bands bring their own equipment?

All our bands for weddings in Kent 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 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 act’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.

Where have your wedding bands performed in Kent?

The aptly named Garden of England is the perfect base to celebrate your wedding. From its undulating hills and watery edges, to its magical cities and seaside towns, Kent has an enviably diverse character.

A few venues our bands have played at regularly and which we'd recommend are: Sprivers Mansion, Bradbourne House, Eastwell Manor and The Hop Farm to Leeds Castle, Winters Barns and Hever Castle, a Kent wedding reception is guaranteed to be uniquely memorable.

Our Kent wedding bands have performed in all major centres of the county, including Maidstone, Gillingham, Dartford, Chatham, Ashford, Sevenoaks and Dover.

They've performed at venues within a stones throw of Rochester and Canterbury cathedrals as well as shabby-chic seaside venues in Margate, Folkestone, Herne Bay, Whitstable and Deal.

Can you provide other genres of function band in Kent?

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 function band format.

We have festival function bands in Kent, ideal for barn-based knees-ups, and postmodern Jukebox style bands for a jazzy twist on pop covers. We also have decade-themed tributes to the 50s, 60s or 80s, for retro weddings.

For more unusual ideas, see our alternative wedding bands.

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 for your celebration, consider booking a midweek or winter occasion to take advantage of the most competitive rates.

Lastly, consider, hiring a wedding band actually based in Kent, to save on travel and accommodation costs. We have acts based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
