Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Ipswich

Why book a wedding band in Ipswich?

With its lively town and picturesque waterfront, Ipswich maintains a cultural, artistic beating heart that makes it a wonderful place to celebrate your big day.

Saturated with talented musicians in a range of genres, you'll be spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing the perfect soundtrack to your special day.

Where in Ipswich do your wedding bands perform?

Our range of wedding bands have performed throughout Ipswich at both private and public venues

From Woodhall Manor, Belstead Brook Muthu Hotel, Isaacs on the Quay, Wherstead Park, Jimmys Farm, Copdock Hall, Woolverstone Hall, Hintlesham Hall Hotel, Seckford Hall Hotel and Priory Hall to The Venue at Kersey Mill, Ufford Park Woodbridge, Richwill Farm, Dove Barn, Easton Grange, Butley Priory, Wivenhoe House and Glemham Hall, the town is full of stunning venues to host your wedding day.

What styles of music do your Ipswich wedding bands play?

Whether you’re looking for dancefloor-fillers, smooth, background jazz, or anything in between, we have a host of Ipswich wedding bands for you to choose from.

You could dance the night away with a pop, rock, Motown or soul band, sip a sophisticated champagne with a string or jazz quartet or give your reception some character with a Latin band, some world music or a tribute act.

With our vast collection of local bands, there really is no end to the shape your celebration can take!

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 background wedding musicians in Ipswich?

Definitely - our Ipswich wedding musicians include jazz bands, string quartets and a host of acoustic trios and duos to fit any occasion.

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

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

We love the range of enquiries we get for couples to celebrate their wedding with different musical styles – and we can cater for them all with our Ipswich function bands!

Whether you’d love to get everyone moving together with a ceilidh and a caller, dancing to some Latin and world music or singing along to one of our feel-good brass bands, we’re confident we can meet your request.

And with a catalogue of jazz bands, soul bands and a wealth of quirkier, alternative musical options, your big day won’t be short of entertainment at any stage of the celebrations.

How can we save money on our band?

With so many of our Ipswich bands offering background music as well as party sets for your evening reception, you can save money on your musical entertainment by hiring the same group of musicians to play throughout your big day.

Many of our rock, pop, soul and Motown wedding bands are able to offer acoustic background sets during the day to accompany you at your ceremony or welcome your guests to a drinks reception - this will save you money on booking separate bands for the different aspects of your wedding.

Be sure to book a local Ipswich band too to save on travel or accommodation costs that can be a factor with bands from further away.

And if you haven't settled on a date yet for your celebration, bear in mind that many of our bands and performers offer competitive rates for midweek or winter bookings. Hiring musicians at these times might just help keep inside the budget you have in mind!
