Guide to booking wedding & function bands in the South West

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

Our South West wedding bands provide live music for after-dinner dancing at your reception.

They generally play pop, rock and soul classics from throughout the decades to get your guests out of their seats and dancing to their favourite hits.

We only select professional and reliable musicians of the highest quality to ensure that your Function Central band leaves you with a night to remember!

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 West wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

This section helps you find an ideal band for your reception, but we also have a variety of weird and wonderful South West wedding musicians to perform throughout your day.

Consider booking a soprano for your ceremony bridal entrance, a string quartet to keep guests entertained whilst you sign the register, a cocktail pianist for your drinks reception or even an acoustic band for your banquet.

Where in the South West do your wedding bands perform?

The South West is full of breathtaking locations for a wedding, but we understand that some of these areas can be difficult to reach from the rest of the country.

Booking a local band enables you to save budget on travel costs and also reduces complications on the day for both you and your band.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the South West, such as ceilidh, steel pan or jazz bands?

If you’re looking for something with a touch of sophistication, we also have the very best jazz bands in the South West.

Hiring a jazz band is perfect for an outdoor reception in the summer – they are generally more compact than a party band making them quicker and easier to set-up, as well as having more control over noise levels.

They can also be adaptable for performing throughout the entire day, why not have them play smooth background jazz at your drinks reception and then turn up the volume for an all-out swinging party in the evening.

We also have a fine range of South West function bands including ceilidh bands if you’re looking for something fun for all the family.

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.

We have acts based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
