Guide to booking wedding & function bands in West Sussex

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

Our wedding bands in West Sussex specialise in catchy, melodic pop music from all eras – from rock'n'roll to Merseybeat, soul and Motown to the chart-toppers of the 2010s.

But we have a larger variety of Sussex bands for hire in all genres – from playing jazz, ceilidh and barn dance to swing and reggae.

Lastly, if you're looking for music for your ceremony or reception, we do that too. Hire classical musicians to play you down the aisle, then book a jazz band to entertain guests during your banquet or drinks reception.

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 Sussex wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Wedding music isn’t just about the final party.

If you're looking for background music to accompany your drinks reception or meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers.

If you're after West Sussex wedding musicians for the bridal entrance, exit or the signing of the register, our harpists or string quartets are a popular choice to make those moments extra special.

Where in the West Sussex area do your wedding bands perform?

We work only with the very best wedding bands in West Sussex and beyond.

Our bands have performed in Worthing, Crawley, Bognor Regis, Littlehampton, Shoreham-by-Sea, Horsham, Haywards Heath, Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Chichester, among other towns and villages.

Our performers are reliable, professional and musically outstanding, and have played at most of the most popular venues in the region including Cottesmore Golf Club, West Stoke House, Arundel Town Hall, Bartholomew Barn, Chatsworth Hotel and Slaugham Place.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the West Sussex area, such as ceilidh, steel pan or jazz 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 West Sussex function band.

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

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

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 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.
