Best bands to book up North


The North of England is not only the home to the Lake District, Manchester United and gravy. The North is home to some of the biggest bands in history. The likes of Oasis, The Beatles, The Smiths, and Joy Division were born and raised up North. My point being the North is the best place to find high-energy bands that are sure to make any event one to remember for a lifetime.

Warble Entertainment provide their customers with some of the best entertainment available to book in and around the North. Our musicians can perform in all the major Northern counties, including Cheshire, Durham, Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and Yorkshire. So without further ado, let me introduce you to the bands!

If you’re planning an event that needs the WOW factor adding to it, Live on Stage are the band to know. The musicians specialise in providing a wide range of bespoke live music to events throughout the UK. They deliver amazingly high-quality entertainment perfect for weddings, corporate or festival events.

Live on Stage: just simply great. Loved their music style; played our requests and were so easy to get on with. Highly recommendable. Would book for another occasion without hesitation.

The Kickstarts are one of those bands that put on a performance of a lifetime. The band are fast approaching 10 years together and in result have accrued over 300+ 5-star reviews, playing ballrooms, stately homes, festivals, stadiums, and everything in between. The trio, having performed together for so many years are as close-knit as could be. So, you know you’re guaranteed to be working with three guys who are as dedicated and hands-on as one another. 

The band are so dedicated to providing guests with the best atmosphere possible, so much so that when the band themselves aren’t playing, they include a DJ set for free. Furthermore, the bands one desire is to deliver performances that feel completely unlike a typical party band and more like a live show you will talk about for years to come.

The band are unsurprisingly one of the North West’s most energetic and lively bands to hire. Most of their bookings come from word of mouth and from guests at events who loved their shows. In other words, with the band being so in demand, The Kickstarts are one busy band to book!

Absolutely fantastic. Couldn't have asked for a better band. Great set, engaged with the guests so well. DJ'd between sets. Just brilliant. Everyone was asking where we found them and raving about how good they were, including the managers of the venue. Would definitely recommend. Thank you so much for a great night!

If you’re looking for a function band that guarantees a great night of entertainment, then look no further than the Stereo Soldiers!

Providing great music is in their nature. In other words, these guys live to entertain. The cover band perform hit after hit of classic rock and pop tunes. Having performed for packed dance floors up and down the country, this band are well experienced. But what makes this band even better is the fact they are happy to learn your first dance song, whilst also offering the option of a late finish. This means you and your guests are fine to continue the celebrations until 1 or 2 am!
