Surrey Wedding Band Booking Guide

What sort of music do your Surrey wedding bands play?

Our Surrey wedding bands range in size from 3-piece guitar-based line-ups through to 10-piece show-bands with backing vocals, brass and percussion and play a broad range of rock, pop and soul music.

Can you provide wedding music for the daytime, as well as the evening?

We don’t just do evening wedding music in Surrey. We can provide musicians for all parts of your day, from your wedding vows right through to the last carriage. Hire a Surrey string quartet or harpist to accompany the bridal entrance and exit, or a wedding singer to keep guests entertained whilst you sign the register. How about a singer guitarist to keep things upbeat during the wedding feast, bouquet-throwing or cake-cutting? If you’re hosting an outdoor garden drinks reception, “unplugged” acts such as a Surrey-based steel band or gypsy jazz trio are ideal since they don’t need a power supply.

Can your Surrey wedding bands learn and perforjm our first dance?

Let us know if you have a request and, more often than not, our bands will be able to make it work! If the band’s line-up or preparation time mean that it isn’t possible, they’ll be more than happy to play your first dance from an mp3 or Spotify through their own PA system.

We're after an alternative Surrey wedding band – what would you recommend?

Book a raucous brass and drums bands as a refreshing alternative to a standard function band. They turn out big brassy versions of well-known classics. But if pop isn’t your thing, you may prefer a ceilidh band for your Surrey wedding – they’re fun and it’s easy to get all generations on the dancefloor. If you’re into swing music, hire one of our Surrey jazz bands.

Do we need to provide any equipment for our Surrey wedding band?


Our Surrey wedding bands all 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 of 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 else 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 at the event. You’ll find specific details on your booking contract.

What happens when there is an interval in the band’s sets?


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

What kind of time should we plan for the band to perform?


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 do your Surrey wedding bands play?

Our wedding bands in Surrey have performed throughout 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 wedding bands in London, since they don't have far to travel.

How can we save money on our Surrey wedding band?

  • Book a wedding band that’s local 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 wedding band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.
  • Consider a midweek or winter wedding – prices are usually more competitive!
