North West Wedding Bands booking guide

What styles of music do your North West wedding bands play?

Our North West wedding bands are great for dancing. Our groovy funk bands and soul wedding bands pump out a great dance-along soundtrack for any wedding, party or corporate event. You don’t have to know your tango from your foxtrot to enjoy one of our salsa or Latin bands, and we even have Caribbean steel bands who can teach you how to limbo!

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 North West 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 wedding meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers. If you're after wedding ceremony 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 North West do your wedding bands perform?

Our wedding bands are available throughout the North West, including: Manchester, Liverpool, Warrington, Blackpool, Chester, Stockport, Sale, Bolton, Preston, Rochdale, Blackburn, Wigan, St. Helens, Wythenshawe, Oldham, Southport, Birkenhead, Bury, Bootle and Carlisle.

Can you offer other styles of music in the North West, such as ceilidh, steel pan or jazz bands?

For more relaxed events, we have some of the finest swing jazz bands in the North West, and some are fronted by their own Rat Pack style vocalists. Our jazz trios are a great way to add style and glamour to an event without drowning out the conversation. We can provide wedding entertainment in the North West to suit all kinds of ceremonies, receptions and dinners, from pianists, Spanish guitarists and string quartets for the quieter moments to lively tribute acts, pop bands and rock bands for evening wedding parties.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

  • Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your wedding band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.
  • If you haven't yet set your wedding date, consider booking a midweek or winter wedding 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 wedding music bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
