Sussex Wedding Bands booking guide

What styles of music do your Sussex wedding bands play?

Our Sussex wedding bands are experts at creating a wonderful atmosphere at your reception in any style – we have wedding jazz bands, soul bands and swing bands in Sussex, as well as barn dance bands, steel bands and DJs. Our bands have played in such beloved local venues as Ashdown Park Hotel, Ockenden Manor and Upwaltham Barns.

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. But let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the band’s system is large enough. Most bands will also bring lighting for both the stage and dancefloor. Check the band'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 band’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 Sussex wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Most of our acts perform danceable, mainstream music from all eras and are suitable for the evening party. But if you're looking for Sussex wedding music for the earlier part of your day, check out our classical musicians, pianists, string quartets and harpists for your ceremony. For your drinks reception or meal, try our wedding jazz bands. Our steel pan bands and roaming bands are ideally suited to outdoor receptions.

Where in the Sussex area do your wedding bands perform?

With it's historic towns, seaside views, countryside walks and rustic character, Sussex is as wide-ranging as the people that live there. As a county, it houses so many fantastic wedding venues that our bands always look forward to putting on a celebration here. Some of our favourites include: Goodwood House, Buxted Park Hotel, Hendall Manor Barns, Hickstead Hotel and Hartsfield Manor, Cowdray House, Long Furlong Barn, Milwards House, Southdowns Manor, South Lodge, The Darenth, Alexander House Hotel and Langshott Mano.

Our West Sussex wedding bands cover Worthing, Crawley, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, Shoreham-by-Sea, Horsham, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Chichester.

Our East Sussex wedding bands cover Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne, Hastings, Bexhill-on-Sea, Seaford, Crowborough, Hailsham, Portslade-by-Sea, Peacehaven and Lewes.

Can you offer other styles of music in the Sussex 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 function band. It's also worth browsing our wedding soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands. For even more offbeat wedding music ideas, see our alternative wedding 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 wedding band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.
  • If you haven't yet set your wedding date, consider booking a midweek or winter wedding 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 wedding music bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
