Somerset wedding bands

If you’re more interested in the Arctic Monkeys and Aretha Franklin than Arthurian legend, you can get the dancing started at your reception with one of our fantastic Somerset wedding bands!

For a wedding in the South West, you can't get a more romantic backdrop than the county of Somerset. And it's not all cider and rustic charm. The city of Bath is a World Heritage Site known for it's stunning Georgian architecture and famous Roman baths.

Our wedding bands in Somerset range from pop and rock to indie folk and postmodern jazz . They play regularly at all the county's best-known venues, such as Orchardleigh Estate, Woodlands Castle and Priston Mill. In fact, they've rocked every corner of this idyllic, pastoral county, including Bath, Weston-super-Mare, Taunton, Yeovil, Bridgwater, Frome, Portishead, Burnham-on-Sea, Clevedon, Nailsea, Keynsham, Chard, Street, Midsomer Norton, Minehead, Wellington, Wells, Shepton Mallet, Radstock and Glastonbury.

Typically our Somerset wedding bands perform catchy, anthemic rock and pop music from the last 70 years, fronted by a male or female vocalist. But we have bands for hire in Somerset suitable for all tastes. Our Somerset ceilidh bands are ideal for a barn wedding. For a more modern rustic knees-up, hire an indie folk band in the mould of Mumford and Sons.

If you’re exchanging your vows in Somerset, you’ll want a special soundtrack while you complete the ceremony and sign the register. Function Central only uses the finest wedding music in Somerset. From singers, harpists and string quartets for the medieval Wells Cathedral to classical guitarists for elegant Georgian townhouses, we have a wide range of options.

After the ceremony, hire a Somerset jazz band to create a classy, upbeat atmosphere at your drinks reception or wedding banquet. Once the mingling is done, take it up a notch and add a swinging, Rat Pack style vocalist.
