Get In Touch


Northern Quarter are a pop and folk style cover band composed of five fantastic musicians. The line-up includes male vocals, drums, guitar, bass/double bass and sax/flute. The band are incredibly versatile and offer a very unique sound, with their electric and festival folk styles and the addition of brass! If you’re looking for a mix of classic pop/rock covers, Mumford and sons Style Folk, 90’s garage and some super sweet sax solos then this is the only band for you!

Electric and Folk Style Sets

One of the benefits of hiring Northern Quarter over many other bands is their ability to show off two different styles. It's like having two different bands perform for the price of one! We know it is always great to add variety to your event, so as standard for a wedding or party Northern Quarter offer both styles. Firstly electric, where they play pop and rock songs very similar to the record, and then their Folk style, where they put down their electric instruments and swap them for double bass and acoustic guitars. They channel their inner Mumford and sons to add a folky twist to popular hits, which always goes down a storm!

Their set list has been expertly crafted over years of trial and error. It always has a great reception with the bands audiences. All ages will be excited by the music they play, from the very very young to the very very old! There's something in there for everybody.

Wedding Service

Northern quarter offer 3 x 45 min sets as standard. This is more than the majority of bands offer. Let us know if you want even more live music than this though, and we can send you an additional quote. We usually suggest the time is split into 1 x 45 min folk set, and 2 x 45 min electric sets, but it can be the other way round if you prefer.

A standard quote from the band will include the following;

  • 3 x 45 minute sets between 8pm and 12am.
  • Arrival at 5pm.
  • Pre-set playlist between sets.
  • First dance learnt.
  • Fully PAT tested equipment, PA and lighting.
  • All travel costs.
  • All necessary insurances to perform at wedding venues across the UK.

Earlier Entertainment

In addition to their standard evening performance, the band are able to offer earlier sets for your ceremony, photo hour, wedding breakfast or drinks reception. So do let us know if this is something you would be interested in, as generally having one band play throughout the day is much cheaper than hiring in separate ones.

London Based

Northern Quarter are based in Fulham, London so are ideally located for weddings in Oxfordshire, Surrey and Hampshire. They are willing to travel across the UK so if you would like to enquire please let us know the location.

Please pass on our sincere thanks to the band for Saturday. They were great, and people are still telling us how much fun they had in the evening because of the music. Aaron - Married Sept 2018These guys were the band providing great music and entertainment at my son's wedding. The mix of tunes catered for all ages and the final song of Chasing Cars was the best I've ever heard. True chemistry between the group with fantastic lead vocals and a band that can really bring an event of any kind to life. Father of the groom - 8th Sept 2018Hi Andy, Just want to say a massive belated thanks to the band! Better than we ever could’ve imagined; entertained from first to last, making the day truly memorable. All the best for the future, will be sure to recommend to friends etc. James & Dilly - Wedding 4th August 2018Apologies this is somewhat belated but I just wanted to thank you for contributing in making Angus and Georgina’s wedding such an amazing and memorable event.You were truly amazing. - Jane - Mother of the Bride - 30th June 2018I just wanted to let you know that we were really pleased with our choice of The Northern Quarter to play at our wedding. They were so much fun and the quality of their music was brilliant. They were professional and reliable and also put up with the groom insisting he wanted to be on stage (repeatedly)! Please thank all of the lads from us for making the evening of our wedding such a success. Everything ran very smoothly and we didn't need to worry about anything. All of the guests (of all ages) have been saying how brilliant they were. Thanks for all of your helping leading up to the day too. Amy and Hari - 1st June 2018 - WeddingHi Andy, Could you please pass on my whole-hearted thanks to the band for their amazing performance at our wedding. We were running behind schedule but that didn't stop them from giving us the full set and then some! People haven't stopped talking about them and as the bride, I personally couldn't have been happier. Thanks so much and will recommend them to future wedding planners for sure! Kind regards, Christine Married 22nd July 2017Hi Andy, I trust the band all made it home safely. Please will you pass on our thanks for an amazing performance by the band, they were awesome. Their music was exceptionally popular and the dance floor was filled from the first dance to the last. I am sure Ted helped by getting the crowd to chant "one more song" as the room was filled with laughter and urging him on. (Ted is 7 going on 27 and a true festival fan). They obviously enjoyed our Northern friendliness and hospitality and spent some time with the guests late into the night (or should that be morning!!) Thank you again for organising them. All worked perfectly. Our kind regards, Sue & Eric LarmettThank you SO much for making our wedding so bloody awesome! Everyone has told us you’re the best band they’ve seen. You MADE our wedding!! Loved the sax player coming out into the crowd and helping sing along to Teenage Dirtbag!! THANK YOU for the bottom of our hearts. Backstreets Back was an epic encore choice � Emily and Cameron - Married 17.11.17Northern quarter played at our wedding in October and honestly they made the day! Everyone loved them! The oldies, the kiddies and especially the single ladies ;)! They are not your typical wedding band- they are fresh and modern and unusual! I've lost track of the number of people who have called to tell us how great they were! Thanks so much guys! Laoise Mary Married October 2017I had these guys come play at my bar after seeing them busking in Kingston. They did a great job of getting the crowd going, and everyone clearly felt very comfortable watching them. - Huseyin, The Library Club, Kingston.You guys were absolutely awesome - we've had lots of comments from guests saying how great you were and we loved you too! Thanks for filling the dance floor! Sam Married 2017
