Guide to booking party bands in Surrey

Why should I hire a Surrey party band for my event?

Whatever occasion you are celebrating, music is the best way to make any event memorable, and Surrey attracts great musicians from all over the world!

Our experts have tracked down the most talented and reliable party bands for hire in Surrey so that you don’t have to.

We have bands in all styles, suitable for all budgets – and all of them are young enough to love what they do and experienced enough to know exactly what to play and when!

What style of music do your Surrey party bands perform?

Hire a Surrey wedding band to play anthemic, danceable material between the 1960s and the 2010s, from Beatles or Beyonce.

Our party bands can get even the shyest guests grooving on the dancefloor and can even play a special song for you.

Our Surrey bands include keyboards and brass section – ideal if you’re inviting a lot of children to your event, how about hiring a Surrey ceilidh band? They make a great focal point for the evening’s entertainment, and children love learning the steps!

Can you provide background musicians for hire in Surrey?

This page is dedicated to party bands, but Function Central is an entertainment agency providing musicians in Surrey for hire throughout the day, not just at your evening reception.

For a wedding ceremony, you could hire one of our Surrey string quartets.

For the perfect accompaniment to a cocktail party and drinks receptions, we have Surrey-based guitarists and pianists.

Or for a summer garden party or outdoor event, our steel bands and Dixieland jazz bands in Surrey are much in-demand!

Do you offer other musical genres, such as ceilidh or jazz bands in Surrey?

If you’re looking for an act for an afternoon drinks reception, how about hiring a swinging jazz band in Surrey?

Choose from a sophisticated selection of cool swing singers and Rat Pack tributes, or hire a singer who plays piano or guitar.

For outdoor receptions and garden parties, book an acoustic act such as a steel band or roaming dixieland band.

Do we need to provide any equipment for the band?

Our Surrey bands all come fully equipped for your event – it’s just worth getting in touch if you think your event will exceed 250 guests, as extra equipment might then be necessary.

You just need to make sure that the band has a power source to plug in to and a space to perform! We recommend a flat and sheltered stage area of at least 3x3 meters for a 3-piece band – then add an extra metre squared per band member that you have booked.

A raised stage is preferable for maximum impact but our bands are flexible to all kinds of set ups!

Where do your Surrey party bands tend to perform?

The gorgeous, quaint towns and villages of Surrey offer an enviably attractive setting for any celebration.

Whether you want to have a party at Froyle Park, Silvermere Inn on the Lake, Glenmore House, Botleys Mansion, Nutfield Priory Hotel, Pembroke Lodge, Southdowns Manor, Northbrook Park, Cain Manor, Wotton House, Oaks Far, Nonsuch Mansion, Pennyhill Park, Great Fosters or Hartsfield Manor, our bands are ready to put on an unforgettable night of entertainment!

Our bands in Surrey have performed across the county in: Woking, Guildford, Walton-on-Thames, Ewell, Esher, Camberley, Redhill, Leatherhead, Epsom, Weybridge, Ashford, Egham, Staines, Farnham, Horley, Godalming, Reigate, Caterham, Frimley, Cobham and Dorking.

Most bands are happy to travel well beyond Surrey, nationally and internationally and it’s also worth checking out our bands in London, since they don't have far to travel.

How can we save money on our Surrey band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.

If you haven't yet set your event date, consider booking a midweek or winter date 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 bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
