What sort of events do our party bands play at?

We have live party entertainment for every occasion, whether you’re commemorating a milestone such as a Bar Mitzvah or retirement, surprising employees at your annual office party, or want to see in the New Year. Book a birthday party band to give your guests something to remember long after the music has stopped!

The bands listed above specialise in after-dinner and evening entertainment when the lights have dimmed, the dancefloor’s lit up, and guests are in the mood for dancing. For afternoon and early evening events, check out our acoustic background acts, or our collection of roving musicians – perfect for garden parties. Also see our wedding bands.

What style of music do our party bands play?

Typically our party bands perform well-known rock, pop and soul covers throughout the decades, from Chuck Berry and Aretha Franklin to modern anthems by Taylor Swift, The Killers and Calvin Harris. A complete list of songs is available on each band’s profile page. If you’d prefer your party band to stick to one genre, check out our soul and funk bands, or swing bands. For bands specialising in one era, try our tribute acts from the 60s, 70s and 80s.

Our party bands have line-ups to fit your event, starting with compact guitar-based 3-pieces. Larger line-ups are more likely to feature keyboards and brass sections, allowing them to play a broader range of soul, pop and dance music as well as pint-raising rock and indie.

Booking a live party band?

Our party bands will bring all the equipment they need for their performance, though it’s worth checking with us if you’re expecting more than 200 guests at your event, so we can make sure the band’s equipment is suitable.

Most of our party bands are booked for after-dinner dancing, and typically would perform 2 x 60 minute sets from 9.30pm through to midnight, with a half hour interval. For performances later than midnight (whether band or DJ service), a later fee usually applies.

Party bands ask for a 60 to 90-minute window from 5pm or 6pm at the earliest in order to set up and sound-check their equipment. It’s ideal if your venue is free of guests at this point, although some bands are happy to do a noiseless line check to test instruments and equipment instead of a full sound-check, if you need to keep the volume down.

On the day you will need to provide access to a power source and a flat, sheltered performance space measuring 3 metres wide by 3 metres deep for a 3-piece band, with an extra metre for each additional member.

All party bands providing evening entertainment request food and drink, which will be detailed on your booking contract.

How can I save money on my party band?

Most of our party bands travel far and wide, but if you’re on a budget, book a local band to save on costs. We have party bands for hire in all major towns across the UK, including London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham and Liverpool.

Don’t forget that many of our party bands can provide additional services, such as a DJ set before, between or after their performances, as well as jazz or acoustic sets earlier on in the day.
