Guide to booking wedding function bands in Surrey

What sort of music do your Surrey wedding bands play?

Our Surrey wedding bands typically play a broad range of rock, pop, soul, Motown and chart music, designed to appeal to all ages and musical preferences.

They range in size from 3-piece guitar-based line-ups through to 10-piece show-bands with backing vocals, brass and percussion.

If you'd prefer an act dedicated to one genre or theme, we don't want to take that away from you – browse the menus at the top of this page.

Will our Surrey wedding band learn our first dance?

In most cases and with adequate notice, yes. Let us know your request and the band will see what they can do.

Depending on the complexity of the track, they may need to schedule additional rehearsal time and make a small charge to cover this. Alternatively they’d be more than happy to play the first dance from an mp3 or Spotify through their own PA system.

Do you only offer rock & pop function bands in Surrey?

No! We have function bands in Surrey dedicated to almost every other genre, such as swing bands or barn dance bands, which are popular with all age groups. We also have festival style bands and bands in the style of Postmodern Jukebox.

Or hire a raucous brass and drums bands as a refreshing alternative to the classic guitar-based function band. They turn out big brassy versions of well-known classics.

Do we need to provide any equipment for the band?

All our Surrey wedding bands come fully equipped for your event, though it’s worth getting in touch if you are expecting more than 200 guests, as extra equipment could be necessary.

For the performance itself you will need to provide the band with a flat and sheltered stage area measuring at least 3x3 meters for a 3-piece band – add an extra meter per band member as applicable.

The band will also require a power source for their equipment and a raised stage is preferable.

Is there anything we need to provide for the band?

Travelling, setting up and performing constitutes a long working day, so our bands ask for food and drink to be provided at the event. This could be served after they've set up and before the start of the performance.

Other than that, they'll just need a flat, safe performance area with access to standard domestic power sockets.

What happens during the band's intervals?

During the break, all of our Surrey bands can supply music through their PA system to keep the party going.

Some bands can also provide proper DJ sets before or after their performance – check their profile for more details.

Will the band need to soundcheck when they arrive?

All bands will require a soundcheck and a 5pm-6pm arrival time and a 60 to 90-minute soundcheck is typically workable.

It's generally best if the performance space is free of guests at this point, but if this isn’t possible, most bands can arrange a ‘noiseless’ line-check to keep the volume down.

How long will the band perform for?

Most of our bands perform two 60-minute sets with a 30 minute interval in between.

So, assuming a venue closing time of between 11pm and midnight, we'd recommend a start time between 8.30 - 9.30pm.

Please note that if the band or their DJ services are required after midnight, late fees can apply.

Where in Surrey have your wedding bands played previously?

The beautiful, suburban towns and countryside villages of Surrey offer perfectly picturesque settings for any wedding reception.

Some of our bands' favourite venues for a reception party are: Froyle Park, Glenmore House, Gildings Barns, Botleys Mansion, Nutfield Priory Hotel, Pembroke Lodge, Northbrook Park, Cain Manor, Nonsuch Mansion and Great Fosters.

Our acts have performed in all major centres throughout the county, including: Woking, Guildford, Walton-on-Thames, Ewell, Esher, Camberley, Redhill, Leatherhead, Epsom, Weybridge, Ashford, Egham, Staines, Farnham, Horley, Godalming, Reigate, Caterham, Frimley, Cobham and Dorking.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

Hire a wedding band based in Surrey to save on travel and accommodation costs. The location of each band is detailed on their profile.

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

Consider a midweek or winter celebration – prices are usually more competitive!
