Booking a wedding band in the North East?

Our wedding bands in the North East are generally booked for after-dinner dancing. They play chart hits from throughout the decades, generally covering a blend of pop, rock and soul. All of the band line-ups consist of a lead vocalist backed by live musicians, varying from compact 3-pieces to large-scale 8-piece bands and everything in between. Remember to see our act profiles to get a sense of a band’s particular style. Choose a band with synthesisers and keyboards for cheesy 80s classics, or a band with guitars if rock and indie anthems are more your thing. If you’re looking for soul, funk and Motown – keep an eye out for our bands with brass sections.

We also have a fine choice of North East jazz bands for hire. A jazz swing band is ideal if you’re looking to give your reception a classy edge. They are generally smaller-scale and easier to set-up than a party band – a perfect solution if you’re worried about accommodating your band in a smaller venue. If you’re looking for something particularly wacky, see our North East ceilidh bands.

Function Central is the go-to agency for wedding music in the North East. By booking locally, you can save on travel costs and minimise hassle for yourself and the musicians. Our north east wedding bands cover Newcastle, Durham, and Northumberland as well as Darlington, Hartlepool, Stockton-on-Tees Newcastle upon Tyne, Sunderland, Gateshead, South Shields Blyth and Cramlington. Browse our bands to find something perfect for your big day.

This section is dedicated to evening wedding entertainment in the North East, but we also have a fine selection of musicians suitable for your daytime proceedings such as the ceremony, drinks reception or photographs.
