Yorkshire Wedding Bands booking guide

What styles of music do your Yorkshire wedding bands play?

Before you hire a 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 wedding bands 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 bands covering more niche genres such as wedding swing bands, wedding 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 for weddings 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 band’s system is large enough. Most bands will also bring lighting for both the stage and dancefloor. Check the band'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 band’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 background music to accompany your drinks reception or wedding meal, try our jazz bands, acoustic musicians or singers. If you're after wedding ceremony 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 Yorkshire area do your wedding bands perform?

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

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.

We've sent our Yorkshire bands to local venues as Cedar Court Hotel, East Riddlesden Hall, Hazlewood Castle, Wentbridge House, Oakwell Hall, Kings Croft Hotel and Holdsworth House, as well as venues throughout the UK and internationally.

Can you offer other styles of music in the Yorkshire 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 function band. It's also worth browsing our wedding soul bands, ceilidh bands and latin & world music bands. For even more offbeat wedding music ideas, see our alternative wedding 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 wedding band can provide this – it'll save you additional costs, such as travel.
  • If you haven't yet set your wedding date, consider booking a midweek or winter wedding 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 wedding music bands based in most major towns and cities across the UK.
