Guide to booking wedding & function bands in South East

What styles of music do your South East wedding bands play?

A standard party band set-up is at least one lead vocalist backed by anything from 3 to 8 musicians.

A guitar-based band is great for rock and indie anthems, choose a band with synths if you’re wanting 80s classics, or a band with a brass section for some funk and soul.

Take a look at our South East wedding band profiles to see footage of our bands at work.

Do all your wedding bands bring their own sound and lighting equipment?

All our bands 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.

Let us know if you're expecting more than 250 guests, so we can check whether the act’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 South East wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

These pages are for our after-dinner entertainment, but we also have a top selection of South East wedding musicians to suit your daytime proceedings.

Our jazz bands in the South East add a touch of class to your reception.

How can we save money on our wedding band?

Before you book more musicians for afternoon background music, check whether members of your party band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.

If you haven't yet set your date, consider booking a midweek or winter occasion to take advantage of the most competitive rates.

Always consider hiring a band from your local area, to save on travel and accommodation costs.
