Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Somerset

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.

What styles of music do your Somerset wedding bands play?

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 suitable for all tastes.

Our 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.

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. 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 Somerset wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

If you’re exchanging your vows, you’ll want a special soundtrack while you complete the ceremony and sign the register.

From singers, harpists and string quartets for the medieval Wells Cathedral to classical guitarists for elegant Georgian townhouses, we have a wide range of Somerset wedding musicians for you to choose from.

After the ceremony, hire a jazz band to create a classy, upbeat atmosphere at your drinks reception.

Once the mingling is done, take it up a notch and add a swinging, Rat Pack style vocalist.

Where in the Somerset area do your wedding bands perform?

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.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Somerset 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 Somerset 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 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.
