Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Suffolk

The beautiful landscape that inspired Suffolk natives Gainsborough and Constable makes a romantic backdrop for outdoor wedding receptions and parties.

To complete the picture and create a truly memorable atmosphere, hire one of our local bands - they're the best way of welcoming guests to your party and keeping them entertained - and Function Central has every kind of musical entertainment for every kind of party.

What styles of music do your Suffolk wedding bands play?

Our most popular Suffolk wedding bands tend to specialise in rock and pop music from the fifties to the present day.

They're available in a wide range of formats, from a 3-piece band with bass, drums and guitar/vocals, through to a 10-piece bands playing soul, Motown and soul-infused pop.

If you have a small room and a shallow pocket, a singer or duo playing to a backing track can make great value entertainment, as well as getting your guests on to the dancefloor.

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 Suffolk wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Steel bands and roaming bands are great choices for outdoor receptions, as they don't require a power supply and can roam freely amongst your guests.

For your ceremony, book a harpist or female soprano to accompany your bridal entrance or exit.

For an indoor drinks reception or wedding banquet, how about hiring a jazz trio or any genre of our extensive collection of Suffolk wedding musicians.

Where in the Suffolk area do your wedding bands perform?

Our wedding bands in Suffolk play regularly throughout the county, in Ipswich, Lowestoft, Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill, Felixstowe, Sudbury, Newmarket, Stowmarket, Kesgrave, Beccles, Mildenhall, Woodbridge, Brandon, Hadleigh, Leiston, Trimley St Mary, Halesworth, Bungay and Needham Market.

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