Oxfordshire Wedding Bands booking guide

What styles of music do your Oxfordshire wedding bands play?

Our wedding bands in Oxfordshire cover every conceivable kind of music, and most keep up to date with all the latest hits. For an exciting, sing-along show that everyone will enjoy, hire an Oxfordshire band playing rock and pop music through the decades – these acts will usually learn your favourite song, too! We can also provide Oxfordshire wedding music for your ceremony and reception, including string quartets, harpists, pianists, guitarists and acoustic acts. If you’re entertaining an eclectic crowd of culture vultures, hire an Oxford band playing world music, Jamaican steel pan, ska, country or French chansons to impress your guests!

Do all your wedding bands bring their own sound and lighting 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. But let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the band’s system is large enough. Most bands will also bring lighting for both the stage and dancefloor. Check the band'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 band’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 Oxfordshire 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 wedding meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers. If you're after wedding ceremony 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 Oxfordshire area do your wedding bands perform?

Can you offer other styles of music in the Oxfordshire 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 function band. It's also worth browsing our wedding soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands. For even more offbeat wedding music ideas, see our alternative wedding 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 wedding band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.
  • If you haven't yet set your wedding date, consider booking a midweek or winter wedding 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 wedding music bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
