Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Leicestershire

What styles of music do your Leicestershire wedding bands play?

Leicestershire is famous for Stilton and Red Leicester, but our bands can give you more than just cheese!

We can provide some of the coolest up and coming young rock bands, soul bands, swing bands in the county, and if you really do just want to hear Abba and Slade, we'll be happy to supply you with bands playing exactly the kind of dancefloor classics everyone secretly loves!

For something different and original, choose a local ceilidh band or add a splash or colour with a Latin band.

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.

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 acts will also bring lighting for both the stage and dancefloor. Check their 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 Leicestershire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

We can provide wedding music in Leicestershire whatever your venue size – hire a wedding singer performing to a backing track for smaller venues, or hire a soul wedding band complete with 3-piece horn section to fill any of the county's larger venues.

Earlier on in the day, hire a string quartet or harpist to play you down the aisle, then follow up with a jazz band to play toe-tapping standards whilst your guests introduce themselves to each other.

Where in the Leicestershire area do your wedding bands perform?

Our Leicester wedding bands have gigged in every far flung corner of this fantastic county, including Loughborough, Hinckley, Wigston, Coalville, Melton Mowbray, Market Harborough, Oadby, Earl Shilton, Shepshed, Syston, Whetstone, Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Birstall, Mountsorrel, Lutterworth, Broughton Astley, Sileby and Groby.

Our acts have played such historic spots as Sutton Bonington Hall, Belvoir Castle, Prestwold Hall and Stapleford Park.

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

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