Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Staffordshire

What styles of music do your Staffordshire wedding bands play?

If you're a rock fan and you want to celebrate the boys being back in town, you’re in the right place!

Staffordshire is the home county of Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy, K.K. Downing of Judas Priest and Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin – inspiring stuff for our Staffordshire wedding bands, who'll get even the shyest crowd on their feet and dancing along with rock, pop and indie classics!

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 Staffordshire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Wedding music isn’t just about the final party.

If you're looking for background music to accompany your drinks reception or meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers.

If you're after Staffordshire wedding musicians for the bridal entrance, exit or the signing of the register, our harpists or string quartets are a popular choice to make those moments extra special.

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.

Always consider hiring a band from your local area, to save on travel and accommodation costs.
