Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Sheffield

What styles of music do your Sheffield wedding bands play?

Typically our Sheffield wedding bands perform a broad range of up-tempo, mainstream rock, pop, soul and chart music from the 1950s to the present day.

You’ll hear music designed to keep everyone on the dancefloor and appeal to all ages.

Our bands cover artists form The Beatles, Elvis, Queen, Prince and Oasis to Bruno Mars, The Weeknd and Dua Lipa.

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 Sheffield wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Most of the bands listed here are geared to evening parties, where dancing is a must - but we have Sheffield wedding musicians for every other part of your special day.

Hire an acoustic guitarist to play your favourite song as you walk down the aisle.

A jazz band can help set a relaxing tone whilst your guests get to know each other over cocktails.

If pop isn't your thing, how about a ceilidh band or a modern brass and drums band to fill your dancefloor in the evening.

Where in the Sheffield area do your wedding bands perform?

Bursting with industrious life and urban renewal, energy and art is at the very heart of Sheffield. With Function Central, you can hire a band to play anything you want, whether that means recreating the music that was playing when you first met or putting their own spin on a contemporary chart-topper.

From Sheffield Town Hall, The Mowbray, Kenwood Hall and Whitley Hall Hotel to Whirlowbrook Hall, Tankersley Manor, The Sitwell Arms and Halifax Hall, whatever wedding entertainment you choose, you can be sure our acts will get even the shyest guests into the groove!

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Sheffield 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 Sheffield 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 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 acts based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
