Booking a party band in Sussex?

Our Sussex wedding bands play all the hits, from time-tested classics to modern chart-toppers, and are happy to learn a first dance or special song for your event – whether it’s a well-known sing along or an obscure indie gem.

We have Sussex party bands for hire playing a wide range of genres. For a corporate party or glamorous student ball, book a Gatsby style swing band, or a band playing jazzy versions of pop covers. For a raucous party in the pub, hire a rock and indie function band. For a garden party with no easy access to a power supply, hire a ‘wireless’ roving band, such as a steel band or acoustic band.

Our price promise means that, if another agency offers you one of our Sussex party bands for a lower price or on better terms, we’ll match their offer. And you won’t have to worry about hiring a separate DJ, as many of our party bands in Sussex provide a free DJ service when they’re not playing. But the bargain price doesn’t mean you have to compromise on quality; our Sussex cover bands are the most gifted performers in the county, as well as being the most reliable, and are all strictly vetted before being allowed on to our books.

This page is dedicated to Sussex cover bands for an evening party, where dancing is on the cards. But if you’re looking for something more laid-back, or suitable for a small venue, how about a singer guitarist or an acoustic duo?

Our Sussex jazz bands are ideal for creating an upbeat, mellow atmosphere your guests can talk over.

Our Sussex party bands are available to play throughout in the East and West of the county, including Worthing, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, East Grinstead, Chichester, Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne, Hastings, Bexhill-on-Sea, Peacehaven and Lewes.
