Guide to booking wedding & function bands in West Yorkshire

Why book a wedding band in West Yorkshire?

West Yorkshire is undoubtably a musical powerhouse – Def Leppard, The Human League, The Beautiful South and Arctic Monkeys are just a few of its musical alumni.

This tradition continues in some of the best rock, pop and soul wedding bands we've seen in the country. We've gathered the best of this talent into one convenient place for you to browse.

Whether you want to rock out with your mates or belt out soul classics with friends and family, our catalogue of West Yorkshire wedding bands are ready to soundtrack your celebration!

Where in West Yorkshire do your wedding bands perform?

Our bands love heading to West Yorkshire for its picture postcard appeal and wonderful people.

From the City of Bradford, Calderdale and Kirklees to the City of Leeds and the City of Wakefield, our bands have played in just about every square inch of this beautiful region.

A few of the venues our bands have played recently include: Wood Hall Hotel, The Woodman Inn, Wentbridge House Hotel, Oulton Hall, The Mansion, The Arches, King's Croft Hotel, Bagden Hall, Great Victoria, New Craven Hall and Woodlands Hotel.

Wherever you're tying the knot, our bands will give you a performance your guests will remember for years to come.

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

Whether you’re looking for music to dance wild moves to, or sip champagne to, we have a wide range of West Yorkshire wedding bands to choose from.

Keep your guests on the dancefloor through to the week hours with one of our pop and rock, or Motown or soul bands.

Or enjoy an outdoor afternoon drinks reception with a string or jazz quartet.

Do all your 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 background wedding musicians in West Yorkshire?

Of course! We can offer West Yorkshire wedding musicians playing background songs at a volume you can talk over. These are ideal for ceremonies, drinks reception and wedding meals.

Check out our jazz bands, string quartets or acoustic trios and duos. We can also offer a range of soloists - from harpists to wedding singers.

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

Whilst the acts on this page lean towards mainstream music, our West Yorkshire function bands come in all genres, shapes and sizes.

Perhaps you've always wanted to dance a reel to a ceilidh band?Or you'd like to celebrate family connections with Latin or World music bands?

Fancy stomping and singing along with a brass band? Or showing off your moves with a soul or jazz soundtrack? We can sort it!

However weird and wonderful, we have musicians ready to put on an unforgettable celebration.

How can we save money on our band?

To save on extra costs like travel, its a great idea to use the same musicians throughout your day.

Our bands are all incredibly talented and many offer background music for the afternoon as well as party sets to see you in to an evening celebration.

The same musicians could gently perform as you walk into your ceremony and then put on a dancefloor filling party later in the day!

It's also good idea to book a local West Yorkshire band if you're getting married in the area - that will save on any travel or accommodation costs you might otherwise incur.

Lastly, if you haven't already set a date, consider booking your wedding during the week or in the winter months. A lot of our bands are happy to offer competitive rates at these times. This will help you squeeze every available penny out of your entertainment budget!
