Yorkshire Wedding Bands booking guide

What styles of music do your Yorkshire wedding bands play?

Before you hire a Yorkshire wedding band, you need to work out what exactly you would like your band to do. Would you like an upbeat and energetic pop covers band to get even your shyest guests on to the dancefloor, or a sophisticated swing band for a more formal occasion?

Function Central specialises in acts suitable for any venue, and at a price that won’t dent your drinks budget!

Most of our bands will play uptempo, melodic rock, pop and soul music that everyone loves, from the Beatles to Bruno Mars.

Smaller line-ups tend to focus on rock and indie, whilst large line-ups play soul, funk and Motown for a stomping, dance floor-filling party soundtrack!

But if pop isn’t your thing, we also have acts covering more niche genres such as swing bands, ceilidh bands, ska bands and New Orleans jazz bands.

For more options, also see our Yorkshire bands for hire page.

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.

But 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 Yorkshire wedding musicians for our ceremony or drinks reception?

Wedding music isn’t just about the final party.

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

If you're after music for your ceremony, choose from our range of acts to play you down the aisle and back again.

Our harpists or string quartets are a popular choice to make those moments extra special.

Where in the Yorkshire area do your wedding bands perform?

From romantic moors to a stunning coastline, Yorkshire is an incredible setting for a wedding.

Our bands have played throughout the county including Hull, Leeds, Bradford, Huddersfield, Wakefield, Halifax, Batley, Dewsbury, Keighley, Castleford, Brighouse, Pudsey, Morley, Pontefract, Shipley, Bingley, Holmfirth, Normanton, Ossett, Yeadon, Rothwell.

There's no finer place for a craggy castle occasion fit for Jane Eyre and our bands have played them all, from Allerton and Ripley to Hazlewood or Danby.

Other favourite venues of our bands include Cedar Court Hotel, East Riddlesden Hall, Wentbridge House, Oakwell Hall, Kings Croft Hotel and Holdsworth House.

Can you provide other genres of function bands in the Yorkshire area?

When it comes to genres, we offer more than just rock and pop.

For something more unusual, check out our brass and drums bands. It's an on-trend and refreshing alternative to the classic Yorkshire function band format.

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

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

How can we save money on our Yorkshire 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.

Consider hiring a band based in Yorkshire, to save on travel and accommodation costs. We have acts based in most major towns and cities.
