Guide to booking wedding & function bands in North Yorkshire

What styles of music do your North Yorkshire wedding bands play?

Our most popular North Yorkshire wedding band is a rock, pop or soul cover band.

They play reliable classics that everybody loves, as well as unique and quirky takes on modern chart toppers.

For something different, how about hiring a ceilidh band or jazz band?

Don’t worry if your budget is limited or your venue is small – our bands can adapt to your requirements, whether your celebration is in York Minster or on the Yorkshire Moors!

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 North Yorkshire 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 North Yorkshire 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 North Yorkshire area do your wedding bands perform?

Our North Yorkshire wedding bands play in York, and throughout the county, at venues such as Hazlewood Castle, Swinton Park and Newby Hall.

They've also played in most other major towns including Middlesbrough, Harrogate, Scarborough, Redcar, Thornaby-on-Tees, Acomb, Ingleby Barwick, Yarm-on-Tees, Selby, Guisborough, Northallerton, Ripon, Knaresborough, Skipton, Whitby, Richmond, Norton, Pickering, Tadcaster Bay and Pickering.

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

For a romantic accompaniment to your ceremony, choose from our selection of harpists, Spanish guitarists and string quartets.

Our North Yorkshire function bands range from Rat Pack tributes to jazz bands and classical string quartets, with something to suit every occasion and pocket.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your party 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.
