Reviews for our Chester wedding bands


Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Chester

Why book a wedding band in Chester?

Amidst the red sandstone Roman walls of Chester beats a relentless artistic, creative heart - and our musicians and bands are part of it!

From the Rows to the city centre, our bands love to play at the stunning wedding venues in and around Chester and provide some of the highest quality musical entertainment that the UK has to offer.

Our Chester wedding bands typically play well-known rock, pop and soul covers for dancing, but are happy to work with you to create the perfect, bespoke musical soundtrack for your special day.

Where in Chester do your wedding bands perform?

Chester is a wonderful hub of wedding venues and our bands love to bring the party vibe to the city's couples.

From Chester Racecourse, Oddfellows, Chester Town Hall, Old Palace, Hallmark Hotel, Mollington Banastre Hotel and Chester Zoo to Rowton Hall Hotel, The Chester Fields, Grosvenor Pulford Hotel, Rossett Hall, Pryors Hayes Golf Club and Inglewood, this ancient town's characterful venues never fail to disappoint.

What styles of music do your Chester wedding bands play?

Chester is saturated with talented musicians of every style! From groups prepared to pack out your dancefloor with pop, rock, soul and Motown favourites to postmodern jazz acts, brass bands and string quartets, every part of the musical spectrum is covered.

Have a browse of all our Chester wedding bands and you'll find Latin and World music to give your wedding celebration an edge, tribute acts to bring a celebrity element to the event - and everything else in between!

Whatever you're imagining for your big day's celebration, our local wedding performers have what it takes to make it a reality!

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 group’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 Chester?

We know that lots of couples have a vision for different musical styles throughout their wedding day.

Our Chester wedding musicians include jazz bands, string quartets and a host of acoustic trios and duos to fit any part of your celebration.

If you’re looking for anything from a classical harpist to a solo wedding singer, we can help you customize the perfect entertainment for your day.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in Chester, such as jazz bands or ceilidh bands?

Absolutely! We love the range of enquiries we get for many different genres and have catered to them with the diverse list of Chester function bands we can provide.

Whether you want to spice things up with some Latin or World music, have everyone follow a caller for a traditional ceilidh, see your guests shimmy and shake to a vintage rock 'n' roll group or chant along with a blaring brass band, we've got you covered.

With a comprehensive list of string quartets and jazz groups we can provide anything from the dancefloor fillers to the more sedate and sophisticated.

We look forward to hearing from you!

How can we save money on our band?

Make sure you book a local band to your venue in Chester to make sure that you don't rack up any unnecessary travel costs.

Lots of our function bands also offer their services for acoustic sets during the afternoon - perfect for a drinks reception or similar. You can save money by using the same musicians throughout the day, to play at your ceremony, to welcome your guests to your venue and to set the party off in the evening.

That will again reduce any travel and accommodation costs you might get from using multiple bands from different locations.

Lots of our local bands also offer reduced rates during winter months and for weekday bookings - so, if you haven't set a date yet, you might want to keep that in mind to fit the budget you've planned!
