Guide to booking wedding & function bands in East Sussex

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

Typically our Essex wedding bands perform a broad range of up-tempo, mainstream rock, pop, soul and chart music from the 1950s to the present day.

You’ll hear music designed to keep everyone on the dancefloor and appeal to all ages.

Our bands cover artists form The Beatles, Elvis, Queen, Prince and Oasis to Bruno Mars, The Weeknd and Dua Lipa.

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 Sussex 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 Sussex 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 Sussex area do your wedding bands perform?

From the county that birthed such acts as The Kooks, Rizzle Kicks and Keane, we know that variety exists in East Sussex! From rolling country hills, to medieval villages and stunning coastlines, the county can meet the requirements of any style of wedding celebration.

We’ve provided music for every type of event in the area, from intimate dinner parties and wedding ceremonies to student balls and New Year’s Eve parties. Our bands love the ambience and enthusiasm of the crowds at venues such as Buxted Park Hotel, Wadhurst Castle, Crowhurst Park, Alexander House Hotel, Ashdown Park Hotel, and many more.

Function Central’s wedding bands have played to delighted crowds all over the county, including Brighton and Hove, Eastbourne, Hastings, Bexhill-on-Sea, Seaford, Crowborough, Hailsham, Portslade-by-Sea, Peacehaven, Lewes, Uckfield, Newhaven, Saltdean, Polegate, Heathfield, Battle, Rye, Ticehurst and Mayfield.

It's also worth checking out our bands in Brighton. And since East Sussex is only a short hop from London, hiring a band in London is also an option you may want to consider.

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

Our East Sussex function bands can cover every conceivable genre, from ever-popular rock, indie and pop bands playing classics from the fifties to the 2010s to exotic salsa and steel pan bands.

We can supply anything from ceilidh bands to covers bands for charity events, and we’re constantly adding new acts to our website.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your party 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 celebration 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 bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
