Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Oxfordshire

What styles of music do your Oxfordshire wedding bands play?

Our Oxfordshire wedding bands 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 a band playing rock and pop music through the decades – these acts will usually learn your favourite song, too!

We can also provide 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 a local 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 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 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 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 Oxfordshire 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 Oxfordshire area do your wedding bands perform?

With its rustic charm and prehistoric attractions, Oxfordshire offers a broad host of venues for a glamorous party.

We can provide bands in Oxford and throughout the county, including Abingdon, Banbury, Bicester, Burford, Carterton, Charlbury, Chinnor, Chipping Norton, Didcot, Faringdon, Henley-on-Thames, Islip, Kidlington, Oxford, Thame, Wallingford, Wantage, Watlington, Witney and Woodstock.

Our bands have played at Poundon House, Kirtlington Park, Old Luxters Barn, Skylark Farm, The Tythe Barn Launton, Ardington House, Lains Barn,Brinsop Court Manor House, Bredenbury Court Barns, The Crazy Bear, Stone Barn, Milton Hill and Blenheim Palace, among many more.

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

We love it when people get creative with their themes and music.

Check out our brass and drums bands for an increasingly popular and refreshing alternative to the classic Oxfordshire 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 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 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.
