Guide to booking party bands in Shropshire

What musical styles do your Shropshire party bands play?

From yacht rock, to pop, vintage and folk, we have Shropshire party bands to appeal to all musical tastes. Browse band music videos on this page to get a sense of what they’ll play at your event.

What sort of packages do your offer?

A typical package for a Shropshire party band will include: 2 x 60 minute sets, arrival and set up from 5pm or 6pm (depending on the band), recorded music in their breaks and PLI and PAT certificates on request.

Will your Shropshire bands bring their own gear?

All our Shropshire bands for hire come equipped with their own PA sound system, microphones, amplifiers, and instruments. This set-up works perfectly for indoor and marquee venues.

If you’re planning an outdoor bash or inviting more than 250 guests let us know so that we can check the band’s system is large enough.

Most bands also provide lighting for the stage and dancefloor. If you have a specific band in mind, check out their individual profile for full details on what they can provide to enhance your celebrations.

Can your Shropshire bands learn a special song for our first dance?

Most Shropshire party bands can accommodate first dance song requests. If they think they can do it justice and arrange it within their line-up, they’ll be happy to learn and perform the song of your choice.

If that’s not possible, they can always play it through their PA system. Check each act’s profile to see what they can offer.

Where in the Shropshire area do your party bands perform?

The rolling hills of Shropshire are not just home to a range of wildlife and outdoor pursuits – you’ll also find a wide range of stunning wedding and party venues. From country barns such as the purpose-built Mill Barns in picturesque Bridgnorth and the Grain Loft in Ludlow, to country manors such as Iscoyd Park near Whitchurch and unique venues like Hencote Vineyard in Shrewsbury.

Wherever you choose to celebrate your nuptials in Shropshire, our bands can bring the party spirit along with the very best tunes.

Can you offer other sorts of cover bands, such as Shropshire jazz bands?

Yes! Whether you’re feeling a jazz band to inject some sophistication into your cocktail hour or an acoustic band for your wedding meal, you’ll find the perfect backing track to every part of your day at Function Central.

At Function Central we pride ourselves on the variety of our acts. You’ll find every genre from mariachi bands to gospel choirs and steel bands for your Shropshire event on our roster.

How can we save money on our party band?

If you have an evening reception band in mind, check if they can offer something suitable for the ceremony and/or drinks reception as well. Booking just one act for the day will save on travel costs.

If you’re yet to set your date, consider a weekday or low-season celebration. A Thursday in winter can cost less than a Saturday in July, for example. Selecting a less popular date often means you’ll save with your other suppliers too.

Always check the bands in your local area as this will save on travel and accommodation costs.

Why hire a Shropshire band from Function Central?

We offer more than just wedding entertainment in Shropshire. You can hire a party band to kick off a corporate event, make your office Christmas party memorable or provide a soundtrack to your birthday celebrations.

Our Shropshire bands for hire have played at almost every sort of function, from birthday parties to corporate events.
