What sort of music do our London wedding bands play?

The majority of the bands listed here play well-known cover music from fifties rock’n’roll to last week’s number one. All of our bands feature a lead vocalist and perform rock, pop and soul music from all eras – ideal for bringing guests of all ages together to celebrate.

Smaller line-ups such as a 3-piece or 4-piece tend to lean towards guitar-based rock, pop and indie, with larger line-ups featuring keyboards and brass performing funk, soul, Motown, R&B and modern dance music. See our soul wedding bands for a dedicated list of these.

If you’re not down with modern music, you may prefer a wedding ceilidh band in London – it’s great way of getting guests of all ages dancing and some can also provide a caller to teach you the steps.

If swing’s your thing, we have wedding jazz bands in London for all parts of your day. Add a touch of glamour to your reception with a jazz trio or hire a swing band for dancing in the evening.

Our wedding bands listed here are intended for after-dinner dancing, but we also offer live wedding music in London for the other parts of your day, including the ceremony and reception. We have London wedding musicians to walk you down the aisle or entertain guests during the signing of the register. How about hiring a guitarist to break the ice during the wedding feast, then a string quartet or steel band for your afternoon drinks reception?

Function Central is the UK’s leading entertainment agency in London and the South East. You may also like to check out our full roster of London bands for hire as well as our London wedding DJs.

    Booking a wedding band in London?

    Our wedding bands in London are experts at entertaining guests of all ages, and only the most professional, reliable and musically outstanding bands and musicians are accepted onto our books. If you're after live wedding entertainment in London, you won't find a better range of acts than ours!

    Our bands would usually arrive at your venue from 5pm or 6pm and take 60 - 90 minutes to unload, set up and sound-check their equipment. It’s ideal if a room can be cleared whilst they do this, but it’s not essential – they can perform a “line-check” to test their levels if not.

    They would then get dressed, eat and return at approximately 9pm to perform your first dance, and begin their sets. Most bands will perform for two hours – divided into two one-hour sets with interval music in between – though some bands can perform three 40-minute sets if preferred.

    All of our bands can provide recorded interval music free of charge between their sets so the dancing never needs to stop. It also means if your favourite song isn’t in the band’s repertoire you can still hear it!

    Most of our London wedding bands offer various booking options, including acoustic options for your wedding ceremony or breakfast and a DJ service soundtrack for your evening reception.
