Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Shropshire

What styles of music do your Shropshire wedding bands play?

Our Shropshire wedding bands make a wonderful addition to your celebration – typically they play all the classic songs form the last 70 years, as well as recent chart hits.

They can even learn your special song or first dance.

Our rock and indie bands will have your guests dancing on the ceiling all night, but if you predict a riot on the dancefloor, how about hiring something a bit mellower?

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.

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 Shropshire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Absolutely! Our Shropshire wedding musicians include ceilidh bands, which are perfect for children, as well as indie folk bands, brass bands and soul bands.

Our jazz bands are ideal for creating a classy, relaxed vibe during your drinks reception.

Where in the Shropshire area do your wedding bands perform?

Our Shropshire wedding bands have played at some of the county's most popular wedding venues, including Iscoyd Park, Mellington Hall Hotel and Walcot Hall.

They've frequented most towns across the county, including Telford, Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Bridgnorth, Newport, Ludlow, Market Drayton, Whitchurch, Shifnal, Bayston Hill, Wem, Broseley, Church Stretton, Albrighton, Highley, Pontesbury, Ellesmere, Prees, Much Wenlock and Craven Arms.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Shropshire 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 Shropshire 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 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 date, consider booking a midweek or winter occasion 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.
