Guide to booking wedding & function bands in Southampton

Why book a wedding band in Southampton?

The vibrant port city of Southampton boasts a significant creative arts culture and a diverse music scene that is rightly the envy of many other UK destinations.

With such a range of musical talent on offer, it's a fantastic place to source your wedding entertainment and dream up the perfect soundtrack for your special day.

Have a browse of our varied roster and create your own bespoke celebration with our huge spectrum of Southampton wedding bands and performers.

Where in Southampton do your wedding bands perform?

It's always a great celebration in Southampton - from Rownhams House, Chilworth Manor, Romsey Golf Club, Royal Southern Yacht Club, Macdonald Botley Park Hotel and The Cromwell Arms to The Montagu Arms Hotel, Beaulieu Hotel, The Potters Heron, East Horton Golf Club, The Solent Hotel and Spa, Bartley Lodge Hotel, Marwell Hotel, Forest Lodge Hotel, Three Choirs Vineyard and Minstead Lodge.

What styles of music do your Southampton wedding bands play?

We know that couples love to make their weddings individual and customised and we pride ourselves on being able to provide Southampton wedding bands as varied as the couples' celebrations themselves.

Whether you want a soulful 6-piece band, a sophisticated classical quartet, a throwback rock 'n' roll extravaganza or anything in between, we've got you covered.

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.

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 background wedding musicians in Southampton?

Absolutely! Our Southampton wedding musicians include classical arrangements, jazz bands, acoustic trios and duos, solo wedding singers and instrumentalists to fit any occasion.

If you’re looking for anything from a classical harpist to some light folk entertainment, we can help you customize the perfect entertainment for your day.

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

Our Southampton function bands include a range of other genres including jazz bands, soul bands, string quartets, soloists and even quirkier, alternative options that mean your big day won’t lack entertainment - whatever your vision for it!

From a ceilidh and a caller to a shimmying salsa, lively Latin or balshy brass, we love to plan as unique a day as possible with each couple deciding to celebrate their big day with our acts.

How can we save money on our band?

Before you look further afield, you can save on travel and accommodation costs by hiring a local Southampton band.

You can save a chunk of your budget by using musicians from the same band at every step of your celebrations - lots of our bands are able to put on a great party in the evening but also play you down the aisle at your ceremony or entertain your guests with some background acoustic music during the afternoon.

If you haven’t already chosen a date for your wedding, lots of our Southampton bands offer competitive rates on winter or midweek dates that will save you having to dig in to the budget too.
