But if you're set on a specific genre, check out our dedicated jazz bands or soul bands. We also have dedicated rock and indie bands, festival folk style bands and DJs.

Do all your Sussex wedding bands bring their own equipment?

All our Sussex wedding bands 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.

Let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the act’s system is large enough.

Most bands will also bring lighting for both the stage and dancefloor.

Check the act's individual profile for more details and optional add-ons to enhance the show!

Can your Sussex 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 act’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 background wedding musicians in Sussex?

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 musicians 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.

What other types of function band in Sussex can you provide?

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 Sussex function band.

It's also worth browsing our soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands.

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 date, consider booking a midweek or winter occasion 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 acts based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
