Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Liverpool

Whether you’re having a party in Penny Lane, nuptials in a Norwegian wood or an opera in an octopus’s garden, Function Central can help you find the right live wedding band in Liverpool or Merseyside at the right price, leaving you free to plan the rest of your event.

What styles of music do your Liverpool wedding bands play?

The city that gave the world the Beatles is home to a wide variety of live musicians and bands, as well as the inevitable Beatles tribute bands!

Scouse wedding singers range from Rat Pack tributes to pop bands, rock bands and soul bands, providing wedding music for every taste in all corners of Merseyside.

As well as Liverpool wedding bands for evening receptions, we can also provide reception and ceremony music – our classical musicians, solo pianists, solo harpists and string quartets are second to none.

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

All our 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 Liverpool wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Wedding music isn’t just about the final party.

If you're looking for background music to accompany your drinks reception or meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers.

If you're after Liverpool wedding musicians for the bridal entrance, exit or the signing of the register, our harpists or string quartets are a popular choice to make those moments extra special.

Where in the Liverpool area do your wedding bands perform?

Our bands have played at most of the best-known venues in the area including Hard Days Night Hotel, The Waterfront, Thornton Manor, The Richmond Hotel and The Liner Hotel and can adapt to fit any requirement and budget.

For example, many rock bands can strip down to three members, and most wedding singers are able to sing to a backing track.

The birthplace of The Beatles, Frankie Goes To Hollywood, The Zutons, The Lightning Seeds, Atomic Kitten and Circa Waves requires both an eclectic and electric party to celebrate any wedding.

Our bands have played throughout Liverpool and Merseyside, including: Birkenhead, St Helens, Southport, Wallasey, Bebington, Bootle, Crosby, Kirkby, Prescot, Heswall, Maghull, Formby, Newton-le-Willows, Halewood, Litherland, Haydock, West Kirby, Hoylake and Garswood.

They're also well-used to playing parties and celebrations across the Wirral, in Birkenhead, Wallasey, Bebington, Heswall, Hoylake and West Kirby.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Liverpool area, such as ceilidh, steel pan or jazz bands?

We love it when people get creative with their themes and music.

Check out our brass and drums bands for an increasingly popular and refreshing alternative to the classic Liverpool function band.

It's also worth browsing our soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands.

For even more offbeat ideas, see our alternative 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 evening 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.
