Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Nottingham

What styles of music do your Nottinghamshire wedding bands play?

Whether you’d like a soul wedding band for a huge reception at Silverstone, or a jazz trio to entertain a few friends in a tent in the Peak District, we’ll find the right wedding entertainment just for you!

Typically our Nottinghamshire wedding bands play all the best-known rock, pop, soul and Motown hits from across the decades – enough to please any crowd and keep guests of all ages entertained.

We can provide a huge range of acts from small 3-piece guitar-based bands for clients on shoe-string budgets, right through to 10-piece showbands for lavish evening parties.

Do all your wedding bands bring their own 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.

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 Nottingham wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

All the bands listed here are suitable for after-dinner dancing, but if you’re looking for acts to perform for your ceremony or reception, our selection of Nottingham wedding musicians is second to none.

Why not hire a harpist or classical guitarist to accompany the bridal procession and a string quartet to entertain guests whilst you take your wedding photos?

A Rat Pack style singer can be a great warm-up for the main act later on.

Where in the Nottingham area do your wedding bands perform?

Full of personality, history and an exciting contemporary music scene, Nottingham is a vibrant location for any wedding celebration.

From Breadsall Priory, Trent Bridge, Colwick Hall, The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club and Beeston Fields to Cockliffe Country House, Sutton Bonington Hall and The Old Vicarage Boutique, the city spoils you for choice on venues and party locations.

Our bands and musicians have played at venues throughout the area, including Beeston, Southwell, Wilford, Sherwood, Radford, Mansfield, Carlton, Sutton-In-Ashfield, West Bridgford, Worksop, Arnold, Newark-on-Trent, Hucknall, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Clifton, Retford and Kimberley.

Can you provide other genres of function bands?

Our wedding jazz and swing bands will add class and sophistication to your reception, whilst our steel bands and salsa bands can brighten up any venue.

To keep an energetic crowd dancing, you could hire a ceilidh band, big band or Latin band.

For a wider selection of Nottingham function bands, check out our local bands for hire page.

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 celebration 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.
