Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Nottinghamshire

Why book a wedding band in Nottinghamshire?

Function Central brings you the most talented, exciting wedding bands in Nottinghamshire and the surrounding area, playing all your favourite music – whether you want rock and pop party bands playing chart hits from the 1950s to the present day, or laid-back jazz collectives.

Our function bands can adapt to fit your wedding perfectly by adding or subtracting members and playing your special song.

We only use the most professional and reliable wedding bands in the area, handpicking them from intense competition. We'll also match any price you are quoted by another agency.

Where in Nottinghamshire do your wedding bands perform?

Full of character, a fascinating past and a vibrant, growing arts scene, Nottinghamshire is a spectacular location for any celebration.

From Breadsall Priory, Trent Bridge, Colwick Hall, The Nottinghamshire Golf & Country Club and Beeston Fields to Cockliffe Country House, Sutton Bonington Hall and The Old Vicarage Boutique, the county is overflowing with beautiful venues and party locations.

Our local wedding bands and musicians have played at venues throughout the area, including Beeston, Southwell, Wilford, Sherwood, Radford, Mansfield, Carlton, Sutton-In-Ashfield, West Bridgford, Worksop, Arnold, Newark-on-Trent, Hucknall, Kirkby-in-Ashfield, Clifton, Retford and Kimberley.

What styles of music do your Nottinghamshire wedding bands play?

Most of our Nottinghsmashire bands play danceable, uptempo rock, pop and soul songs your guests will know and love.

But if mainstream isn't your thing check out our ceilidh bands, Motown bands and party bands – they'll get even the shyest guests on the dancefloor later in the evening!

We also have a range of alternative wedding bands.

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 events.

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 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 background wedding musicians in Nottinghamshire?

All bands listed above are suitable for dancing at early evening receptions. But if you're after music earlier on in the day as well as the evening, our selection of Nottinghamshire wedding musicians are second to none.

Hire a harpist or string quartet for your bridal procession and photos, as well as background musicians for your drinks or banquet.

In fact, from your bridal entrance through to the last limo of the night, we’ve got your entertainment covered!

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

We love it when people get creative with their wedding themes and music.

Check out our brass and drums bands for an increasingly popular and refreshing alternative to the classic Nottinghamshire function band.

It's also worth browsing our soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands.

For even more offbeat event ideas, see our alternative wedding bands section.

How can we save money on our 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 a 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 acts based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
