Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Leeds

What styles of music do your Leeds wedding bands play?

Our wedding bands in Leeds are ideal entertainment in any venue, whether you’re looking for a raucous rock’n’roll band or an uplifting soul band to keep guests dancing till dawn.

You can hire a band to play almost any style of mainstream music you want – from 50s rock’n’roll songs to mainstream hits by Beyonce to hits by Leeds natives Soft Cell, Chumbawumba and the Kaiser Chiefs!

Do all your wedding bands bring their own sound and lighting equipment?

All our function bands 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 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.

Can you also provide Leeds wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

This section is dedicated to evening party bands, but we can provide Leeds wedding musicians for all parts of your day.

Why not walk down the aisle to the ethereal sounds of a harpist?

Then take it up a notch for your wedding meal with some jazz musicians?

Where in the Leeds area do your wedding bands perform?

Whether you’re looking for Happy Mondays in Halifax, Paul Weller in Wakefield or Heaven 17 in Huddersfield, we'll help you find the perfect wedding entertainment in Leeds!

Our bands are available to play throughout the area, including: Headingley, Wetherby, Skipton, Harrogate, Castleford, Dewsbury, Huddersfield, Bradford, Wakefield and Bately.

They've played in all the best-known venues in the area, including the Rudding Park Hotel, the Dean Court Hotel, The Mansion, The Royal York Hotel, Barley Hall, Monk Fryston Hall Hotel and the Harrogate International Centre.

Our Leeds bands will also travel nationally and internationally.

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

It's also worth browsing our 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
