Why Hire a Live Band For Your Wedding?

Great and memorable weddings have incredible receptions that go on into the late hours. When you hire a great wedding band your guests won't be able to leave the dance floor. You need the energy and electricity of a live wedding band to wow the crowd and get the party started.

Our bands have played hundreds of weddings and really our absolute professionals. They cover everything including learning your first dance song, bringing fully PAT certified PA and equipment, and also providing a playlist for between their live sets so you don't need to hire a DJ. You can't beat the spontaneity and intimate nature of live music at a wedding. 

Compared to recorded music, a live band on your big day truly sets the tone and is hugely impactful and impressive. Our performers have the experience to sense the mood of the room and change the tempo or tunes to make sure the dance floor is full and all your guests are having a great time. 

If you have a wedding or event and aren't quite sure what sort of entertainment you're looking for, please don't hesitate to give us a call or email with your venue postcode and event date and we'll find something perfect for you.

How to Make Your Party or Corporate Event a Success

People attend corporate events for all sorts of reasons, and one of the most important is to mix, socialise, and make new contacts. Live music can help everyone to relax at a networking event and help break the ice at company parties. So why not hire a band? 

Booking a band takes the pressure off you and allows you and your guests to really let your hair down and have a good time. It also says a lot about the host, that they went to the trouble of hiring a live band to entertain everyone. This is something your valuable clients will surely remember.
