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.
