Hiring a band for that special function is tricky, with so many things to consider. Warble Entertainment offers thousands of bands to hire covering every musical genre you can imagine…
Whether you need to book a musician or an act to entertain wedding guests, business clients at a corporate event, or friends and relatives at a landmark birthday or anniversary party, we can help you find the perfect music for the occasion.
So what is the best style of band to keep guests entertained?
Well, there are so many different kinds of events to consider; from formal galas to more celebratory presentation nights, cosy country weddings to lively anniversary parties at the local civic hall. It’s worth spending the time to see what music is on offer, and what will best suit what you hope to achieve.
Here are five styles of bands to hire that could deliver the right sounds for your special celebration:
Big Band And Orchestras
Sometimes, if you’re going to book an act for a wedding or special event you might as well go all-out and fill the stage with stunning sounds and amazing visuals. That’s what a big band or orchestra brings to the party, real scale and drama that looks spectacular.
Warble Entertainment works closely with many bands, and we produce some great video clips to give you a proper feel for the bands you might want to hire. Take a look at Swingsation who bring Rat Pack swagger to the stage; a big band sound with up to twelve performers who cover Michael Bublé, Frank Sinatra, Robbie Williams and Bobby Darin.
Want even bigger? The Electrix Orchestra tops the lot, with numbers ranging from ten to a jaw-dropping thirty-seven on stage playing every instrument you can imagine. Stunning, contemporary and very slick, they give modern records an amazing make-over but keep things classy and professional.

Reggae And Ska
From upbeat and funky, to seriously chilled-out tunes, the reggae and ska scene evokes memories of Bob Marley, Madness, UB40, The Specials and Aswad. Bobbing and weaving, shuffling and skipping, happy sounds that get everyone dancing.
Check out the tunes and moves that The Ska Kings offer, infectious beats and great routines on stage. They look and sound authentic, so if you’re hoping to hire a lively band that promises a night of high-energy music and dance they could be just what you need.
Dropping down a notch is the Reggae Legends Show. No less entertaining, but a more mellow collection of beats to keep your guests moving and rocking at a slightly slower pace. Think Marley, Eddie Grant, Desmond Decker and UB40 – great music delivered by a talented solo artist.

Rock And Pop
Acts from the rock and pop genre are always in demand. It’s no surprise that people want to hire bands that boast soundtracks that have filled the charts for decades. They are easily recognised; sing-along sounds where a wide range of guests will know the lyrics.
First up, we would urge you to listen to Anthem – exclusive to Warble Entertainment. An energetic four-piece, these lads play with true passion. Vintage, classic and ultra-modern hits to suit your occasion. You can hire this band with confidence that they will please.
Another top choice of wedding or function band would be Radio Kings. Only a three-piece but they pack a musical punch. A huge sound that, without becoming too cliché, really does offer something for everyone. A cracking selection would be titles from The Mavericks, Elvis, Take That, Kings of Leon and Maroon 5. Told you; something for everyone!

Jazz And Swing
There’s something about jazz and swing bands, often resplendent in formal suits, crisp white shirts, hats and oozing style.
First, tell us that the name Blue-Heart Mitch & The Blazin’ Jacks doesn’t excite and intrigue you. Then take a listen, watch their moves and enjoy how they encourage audience participation. Infectious sounds from across the years, you pick what you’d like to hear from some stunning soundtracks.
Somewhat more old-world but nevertheless glamourous are The Gatsbys. A classy four-piece, they bring timeless style in the form of Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, and Irving Berlin. They look and sound roaring twenties and will get even the shyest guests on their feet.

Soul And Motown
Like that pair of comfy slippers, Soul bands and Motown bands get hired because they just feel great. Easy listening, great to dance to, well-known classics that have filled discos and dancehalls since the 1960s. There are hundreds of bands to hire that cover gospel, rhythm and blues, and feed the soul…
Soul Grooves are a polished six-piece combo that somehow fuse influences from multiple household names into one fabulous show. They are truly talented musicians that have toured with the best, happy to light up your night with songs from Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, The Jacksons, Wilson Pickett and Earth, Wind and Fire.
For something slightly different but still mixing soul and Motown with modern-day artists and with a vintage twist, Whiskey Wailers are a quirky and flexible option. With cool and funky instruments, a flamboyant range of outfits, these guys look fab and sound fantastic.

That’s not all; we can also supply celebrity singers, fabulous musicians and performers who have once formed part of larger bands, or been finalists on TV talent shows. They are instantly recognisable. We also offer tribute bands for hire, and unique musicians who play unusual styles found all over the world.
Whatever type of band you need, Warble Entertainment has got it covered.
