Guide to booking wedding & function bands in South Wales

We take over 3,000 wedding band bookings a year, and supply bands for some most prestigious events in the country, so we can help you find the perfect band in South Wales for your celebrations.

What styles of music do your South Wales wedding bands play?

Live music is the ideal way to celebrate any special occasion and we have an amazing array of choices in our South Wales wedding bands.

You can hire Abba tribute acts for anniversaries, big bands for birthdays, rock bands for wedding receptions and celebrate St David’s day parties with party bands covering hits by Welsh natives Tom Jones, Catatonia and the Stereophonics!

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.

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 South Wales wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

We can provide South Wales wedding musicians for the whole of your day, not just the evening party.

Book a wedding singer to serenade you down the aisle, or a pianist for your drinks reception. Our jazz bands bring excitement and spontaneity to your reception.

So whether you’ve hired out Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium or rented the uber-cool and trendy Clwb Ifor Bach, we have the right band for you!

Where in South Wales have your wedding bands performed?

With its stunning scenery and rustic villages standing alongside its pulsating nightlife and coastal destinations, South Wales is a beautiful location for any wedding celebration.

Some of our favourite venues in the area are: Gileston Manor, Tall John's House, Plas Dinam, Fairyhill, Oldwalls, St Donat's Castle, De Courcey's Manor and Llechwen Hall Hotel. The Bear Hotel, Temple of Peace and Llangoed Hall.

We can provide live wedding bands throughout the region and in all major urban centres, including Tydfil, Wrexham, Barry, Neath, Port Talbot, Pembrokeshire, Cwmbran, Torfaen, Bridgend and Llanelli, as well as Flintshire, Carmarthenshire, Caerphilly, Powys, Gwynedd, Monmouthshire, Anglesey, Denbighshire, Pontypridd, Rhondda Cynon Taf, Aberdare, Colwyn Bay and Conwy.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the South Wales 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 South Wales 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 celebration 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.
