Live Wedding Bands in London & South East

Dance the night away to a London wedding band performing rock, pop and soul music from across the decades.

Our London wedding bands typically play well-known covers from fifties rock’n’roll to last week’s number one. All bands feature a lead vocalist and perform a broad range of rock, pop and soul music.

Smaller line-ups such as a 3-piece or 4-piece tend to lean towards guitar-based rock, pop and indie, with larger line-ups featuring keyboards and brass performing funk, soul, Motown, R&B and modern dance music. See our soul wedding bands in London for a dedicated list of these.

If you’re not down with modern music, you may prefer a London-based wedding ceilidh band– it’s great way of getting guests of all ages dancing and some can also provide a caller to teach you the steps.

If swing’s your thing, we have wedding jazz bands in London for all parts of your day. Add a touch of glamour to your reception with a jazz trio or hire a swing band for dancing in the evening.

Our wedding bands are available to perform in Camden, Greenwich, Hackney, Kensington, Hammersmith, Islington, Lambeth, Lewisham, Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Wandsworth, Westminster. We also have bands in outer London boroughs such as Barking, Barnet, Croydon, Ealing, Kingston-upon-Thames, Richmond, Harrow, Havering, Merton and Newham.

All our London wedding bands listed here are intended for after-dinner dancing. We also have wedding musicians in London to cover all the other parts of your day, including London wedding singers, or string quartets, to accompany you down the aisle or sign the register, and London steel bands.

Our London wedding bands have played in all the most prestigious venues in the city, including Somerset House, Eltham Palace, Pembroke Lodge, London Dungeon, Chandos House, Haberdashers' Hall, Kenwood House, Syon House & Gardens, Holborn Bars, Shepperton Studios and London Zoo.

Booking a London wedding band?

Our London wedding bands are experts at entertaining guests of all ages, and only the most professional, reliable and musically outstanding bands and musicians are accepted onto our books. If you're after live wedding entertainment in London, you won't find a better range of acts than ours!

Our wedding bands would usually arrive at your venue from 5pm or 6pm and take 60 - 90 minutes to unload, set up and sound-check their equipment. It’s ideal if a room can be cleared whilst they do this, but it’s not essential – they can perform a “line-check” to test their levels if not. 

They would then get dressed, eat and return at approximately 9pm to perform your first dance, and being their sets. Most bands will perform for two hours – divided into two one-hour sets with interval music in between – though some bands can perform three 40-minute sets if preferred.

All our London wedding bands can provide recorded interval music free of charge between their sets so the dancing never needs to stop. It also means if your favourite song isn’t in the band’s repertoire you can still hear it!

Most of wedding bands in London offer various booking options, including acoustic options for your wedding ceremony or breakfast and a DJ service soundtrack for your evening reception.
