Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Northamptonshire

Known simply as the "Rose of the Shires", Northamptonshire is a stunning place to get married. The many luxurious mansions and country estates that dot the county bear testament to its aristocratic past; many of these historic homes are now top wedding venues, frequented by some of our best-selling bands! Some of our favourite venues include Rockingham Castle, Sedgebrook Hall, Towcester Racecourse, The Pavilion and Dodmoor House.

What styles of music do your Northamptonshire wedding bands play?

Our Northamptonshire wedding bands in usually play a wide variety of great tunes from all eras.

This is ideally suited to cross-generational events where the aim is to please all your guests and leave no-one out.

But we don't just do mainstream pop. If you're expecting a lot of children, how about a Northamptonshire ceilidh band – kids love to learn the steps. Our steel bands make great entertainment for outdoor wedding receptions, as do dixieland jazz bands.

For more sophisticated entertainment to impress your guests, hire a jazz band to play swinging standards into the small hours.

And it doesn't stop there. We offer everything from solo wedding singers for your ceremony or reception to acoustic duos and classical guitarists for your wedding feast.

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 Northamptonshire 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 Northamptonshire 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 Northamptonshire area do your wedding bands perform?

The historic surroundings of Northamptonshire with picturesque villages and stately homes make it an unforgettable destination for your celebration.

From Fawsley Hall Hotel, Whittlebury Park, Crockwell Farm, Highgate House, Sedgebrook Hall and Wicksteed Park to Dodmoor House, Brampton Grange, Overstone Park and Silverstone Golf Club, our bands are used to playing in every corner of the county.

Our acts have frequented all the major towns in the area, including: Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Wellingborough, Rushden, Daventry, Brackley, Desborough, Towcester, Raunds, Irthlingborough, Higham Ferrers, Rothwell, Burton Latimer, Thrapston, Oundle, Earls Barton and Brixworth.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Northamptonshire 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 Northamptonshire 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 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.
