Meet Bands For Hire, a nationwide music agency offering some of the biggest and best wedding bands and musicians across the country.
Music is an essential addition to any wedding, and whilst an experienced wedding DJ is certain to get the party started, nothing quite compares to the thrill of watching a group of live musicians rockin’ out on stage.
Whether it’s a live band for your evening celebration, or perhaps something more subtle earlier on in the day, there are literally hundreds of options to consider.
Daytime Wedding Music
If you’re opting for a traditional English wedding with all the trimmings, then a string ensemble to start the proceedings should certainly be on the cards. Looking through the Bands For Hire site, you’ll come across a range of string duos, trios and quartets, all offering various options to cater for your budget. With what seems to be a never-ending repertoire of music from every era imaginable, you won’t find yourself stumped when it comes to picking those all important ceremony songs.
If a string quartet isn’t quite your thing, then a talented solo harpist or guitarist is equally qualified to get those hairs standing on end. From classical to contemporary, the choice is yours!
Jazz and Swing Band Hire
If you’re thinking about live music for your drinks reception but are struggling for ideas, jazz and swing is a great choice, both musically and visually.
With the roaring twenties at its roots, jazz is a genre of music that simply screams ‘cool’, and when it comes to live wedding music, it’s more popular than ever – especially for those brides and grooms aiming for a vintage themed, Gatsby style extravaganza!
Whether you’re new to jazz or a veteran of The Great American Songbook, you’ll know just how vast the options are when it comes to hiring a band. From New Orleans trad jazz to Parisian gypsy swing; instrumental dinner jazz to a 1940s style big band, ala Frank Sinatra.
The tone of your wedding will most likely dictate the style of band you opt for. For background music, a solo jazz pianist will certainly do the trick, but for something more attention grabbing, a full band with lead vocals and brass are the perfect combination to get those toes tapping.
Live Evening Bands
The formalities are over and it’s now time to get the evening party underway. If it’s a full-on dance off you’re after, a live wedding band could be right up your street.
On the Bands For Hire website you’ll find an extensive roster of wedding bands that cover a broad range of genres. With such a diverse mixture of age groups, this often proves to be the most popular choice for weddings, ensuring there’s something for the grandparents as well as the younger generation. So whether it’s pop, rock, soul or indie that takes your fancy, an all round function band will have the goods to get the party moving!
