Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Lancashire

What styles of music do your Lancashire wedding bands play?

We have collated the most sought-after Lancashire wedding bands in a number of genres.

Our extensive collection of rock, pop, soul and Motown bands will create a show to remember as well as play your favourite songs.

Alternatively, for wedding music which doesn't break the bank, how about a solo singer accompanied by either backing track, guitar or piano, or an acoustic duo?

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.

Let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the act’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 Lancashire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Our bands tend to specialise in mainstream, uptempo pop music by artists as varied as The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, The Killers and Bruno Mars.

But we also offer more eclectic choices of Lancashire wedding musicians such as klezmer, dhol, salsa, swing, jive and bebop.

If you're after music for your ceremony, check out our string quartets or harpists.

Our jazz bands are ideal for keeping guests entertained whilst guests mingle, or to help break the ice at dinner.

Where in the Lancashire area do your wedding bands perform?

Our Lancashire wedding party bands have played at venues throughout the county, such as West Tower, Leighton Hall and The White Hart Inn.

We've sent wedding bands to every nook and cranny of the county, including Blackpool, Blackburn, Preston, Burnley, Bamber Bridge, Lancaster, Lytham St Anne's, Leyland, Chorley, Fulwood, Accrington, Skelmersdale, Morecambe, Nelson, Darwen, Fleetwood, Ormskirk, Rawtenstall, Thornton, Colne, Poulton-le-Fylde, Haslingden, Heysham, Clitheroe, Bacup and Kirkham.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Lancashire 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 Lancashire 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 your date, consider booking a midweek or winter occasion to take advantage of the most competitive rates.

Always consider hiring a band from your local area, to save on travel and accommodation costs.

We have acts based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
