Guide to booking party bands in Leicestershire

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

With centuries of creativity at its core, Leicestershire is overflowing with artistic and musical talent.

Between its Elizabethan castles and Roman ruins, the county is alive with a contemporary music scene that has produced artists from Showaddywaddy to Kasabian.

Our party bands in Leicestershire have been carefully selected to ensure that they are the finest in their genre and are able to soundtrack your event with music of the highest quality.

What style of music do your Leicestershire bands perform?

We specialise in party 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 Leicestershire?

This page is dedicated to party bands, but we can also provide 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 Leicestershire party bands tend to perform?

Our Leicestershire bands perform across the county and have enjoyed celebrating with clients at some of the best-loved venues in the area, including The West Mill, The Ashes, Bourton Hall, Donington Park, Dodford Manor and Holmewood Hall.

Our bands are also very happy to come and play in your house, garden or marquee, so let us know any ideas you have for celebrating and we'll find the perfect band to fit your occasion.

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

How can we save money on our Leicestershire 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.

Always consider hiring a band from your local area, to save on travel and accommodation costs. We have bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
