Guide to booking wedding & function bands in the West Midlands

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

The region that produced Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin is an excellent resource for bands (though ours are a little easier on the ears).

Our line-ups start with 3-piece bands playing rock’n’roll, pop and a touch of soul music, and continue through to 10-piece extravaganzas complete with keyboards and brass section.

All our bands include a male or female vocalist, and specialise in getting guests onto the dancefloor, and keeping them there.

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 West Midlands wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

The bands listed above are intended for after-dinner entertainment where dancing is a must.

If you’re after musicians to accompany you down the aisle, entertain guests during photos, or play whilst you cut the cake, we have a range of West Midlands wedding musicians including guitarists and string quartets.

Where in the West Midlands do your wedding bands perform?

Spanning across Herefordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire, Warwickshire and Worcestershire, the picturesque towns and soaring countryside of the West Midlands offer a beautiful setting for any wedding celebration.

With a musical heritage boasting the likes of UB40, Duran Duran, ELO, The Moody Blues and The Streets, music belongs at the heart of the occasion.

Our bands have performed in all the best-known venues, towns and villages in the region, including: Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton, Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Dudley, West Bromwich, Walsall, Stourbridge, Halesowen, Willenhall, Kingswinford, Smethwick, Bloxwich and Tipton.

Across venues such as New Hall Hotel, Hampton Court Castle, Warwick House, The West Mill, The Mill Barns, Pendrell Hall, The Westmead Hotel, Brinsop Court Manor House and Barn, Curradine Barns, Windmill Village Hotel and The Moat House Hotel, we have already created unforgettable evenings across the region and we look forward to many more!

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

Most of the bands listed here will play two sets of rock, pop and soul music from all eras, which is ideal if you’re expecting guests of varying ages.

But you’re after a more specific genre, check out our West Midlands function bands, which includes a broader variety of genres such as steel pan, ceilidh and jazz.

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 wedding 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.
