Guide to booking wedding & function bands in the East Midlands

What styles of music do your East Midlands wedding bands play?

Our East Midlands wedding bands generally perform pop, rock and soul hits from over the last few decades, and their performances are designed for guests of all ages.

The acts vary from stripped-back 3-piece bands to elaborate line-ups like 8-piece show bands.

Our individual profile pages give you a good impression of what to expect from each band.

Hire a guitar-based band for rock and indie hits, or a band with keyboards and synths for a bit more 80s pop.

Looking for some soul? Bands with brass sections are perfect for funk and Motown music.

Do all your wedding bands bring their own sound and lighting equipment?

All our 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 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 East Midlands wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Wedding music isn’t just about the final party.

If you're looking for background music to accompany your drinks reception or meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers.

If you're after East Midlands wedding musicians for the bridal entrance, exit or the signing of the register, our harpists or string quartets are a popular choice to make those moments extra special.

Where in the East Midlands do your wedding bands perform?

The East Midlands is a good, central location for a wedding, but remember that hiring a local band allows to you keep travel costs down and eases the logistics for you and your band.

Our bands cover all the counties in the region including Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire, Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Bedfordshire, Suffolk and Norfolk.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the East Midlands, such as ceilidh, steel pan or jazz bands?

Our East Midlands function bands can play more than mainstream, catchy and melodic pop music!

Our jazz bands are perfect if you are looking for a sophisticated touch. Playing anything from smooth background jazz to show stopping, up-tempo swing, a compact jazz band is a great way to provide all the excitement and spontaneity of live music without breaking your budget or testing the venue’s sound limiter.

If you want something light-hearted and interactive to get your guests involved, we also have a selection of great ceilidh bands in the area.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

To save money, you can take advantage of your booking by using your wedding band throughout the day. Many of our acts offer DJ services, acoustic sets, cocktail piano and can even sing you down the aisle.
