Yorkshire wedding bands

Handpicked wedding bands in Yorkshire to suit all tastes, budgets and venue spaces

Before you hire wedding band in Yorkshire, 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 North, South, West and East Yorkshire wedding bands for any venue, and at a price that won’t dent your drinks budget! We have provided wedding bands at such notable Yorkshire venues as Cedar Court Hotel, East Riddlesden Hall, Hazlewood Castle, Wentbridge House, Oakwell Hall, Kings Croft Hotel and Holdsworth House. Most of our Yorkshire wedding 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 bands covering more niche genres such as wedding swing bands, wedding ceilidh bands, ska bands and New Orleans jazz bands. For a more complete list of these, see our Yorkshire bands for hire page.

Our acts can adapt to fit any party, from a wedding reception in a small room to a function in a large ballroom, and our wedding bands 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.

The bands listed here are all suitable for dancing, but if you’re looking for something more sedate for your ceremony or reception, why not hire a string quartet or harpist to perform earlier on in the evening, or an acoustic guitarist to sing your favourite song whilst you walk down the aisle.
