How To Choose The Perfect Wedding Band in Manchester 

Choosing a live wedding band is easy. Finding the perfect one for your day is a little trickier! 

When looking for Manchester wedding bands, you’ll likely come across so many different musical options that your head will be spinning. So, how do you choose between them?

Here are some the top things you’ll definitely want to check before you book any Manchester musician or band for your special day! 

Watch Videos of Your Band

We live in the age of video and media.

We hate to break it to you, but most couples don’t get to see their wedding band before they book. Unless you are lucky enough to see them at a friend’s wedding (or are in the business of crashing weddings!), then you are going to have some difficulty in seeing these acts live.

As professionals, wedding function bands are restricted to private events 99% of the time. This is why videos are so important.

Live clips are awesome if you can get hold of them. Scout the band out on social media and see what they are like! How do they interact with each other and the crowd? This will give you a good idea of what they are like on stage.

Consider Your Wedding Venue 

Of course, you will want to find a band that fits your personality as a couple. But have you considered your venue and how they will fit in there too?

If having a killer live wedding band is important to you, then you need to make sure they are right for your venue. 

Firstly, find out if your venue has a sound limiter or any noise restrictions. If they do, it’s not always a problem - but it can affect what style of band you have! The sooner you know this, the easier your wedding entertainment search will be.

You should also ask to see the space where the band will set up (and the dance floor). Getting a good idea of the room you have to work with will assist you in finding the perfect wedding band in Manchester.

Go Through The Setlist

A band is nothing without their arsenal of songs.

Scour their setlist and see what they have in their repertoire. Make sure you are thinking about your guests when you do this!

It’s great if a band knows all your favourite songs, but do they have enough to cater for all your guests? 

The best wedding bands in Manchester will be able to lean towards a certain genre like rock, pop, R&B or folk, whilst still having the high energy classics in there for everyone to enjoy.

Read Wedding Band Reviews 

Consistent reviews are important for any wedding vendor.

Reading reviews from real couples who have had the same band at their wedding is extremely useful. Doing your research is more than just reading reviews though! 

Check how many reviews the band have to see how often they are going out. Are they busy and in demand as performers?

Pay close attention to what couples are saying as well. Are the band friendly, easy to work with and hard working? Look for all this, and more to make sure you can trust your wedding musicians.

Real wedding blogs are another great resource to learn more about your wedding suppliers. If you are looking for Manchester wedding bands for hire then it is a good idea to find real wedding blogs from other Manchester based weddings, and see what band they chose!

Pay Attention to Their Look

Not enough people talk about this, but it’s really important. Your band has to look the part, as well as sound the part.

A band’s appearance can tell you a lot about them. Every band has a distinct style and personality that sets them apart.

If a band takes pride in the way the dress and present themselves, it is usually a good indication that they take themselves seriously as a professional wedding band and professional musicians. Even better if the band matches your venue and theme with the way they look, it makes a huge difference overall!

FAQs

Hire A Wedding Band

At Warble Entertainment Agency, we have literally hundreds of professional bands for  wedding entertainment available to hire – and local to you! We have live bands for hire and musicians performing everything from Rock and Pop, Jazz and Swing, to Motown, Soul, Rock & Roll, and Jive… plus much more. In fact, every other genre you can imagine. Right across the UK, we can help you find the perfect Wedding band for any event. Our musicians are professional, reliable, and experienced.

Do I Get To Choose The Songs My Wedding Band Performs?

Let’s get something straight; Wedding bands are exactly what you want them to be! The bands need to be flexible, because unlike specific concerts where an audience expects a certain sound and style, at Weddings – such as weddings, birthdays, and other special celebrations – the guests could be from several generations. You need to make sure that they all have a great time. So, Wedding bands need to get the balance right, to be able to adapt and read how a party is progressing.

Wedding bands primarily play the favourite tracks from a musical genre. So, if you have booked a Rock & Roll band, for example, perhaps specialising in 1970s and 80s sounds, you could rightly expect to hear cover songs from Bruce Springsteen, Queen, Dire Straits, Elton John and maybe Rod Stewart. When you book through Warble Entertainment we make sure that you are happy with the playlist and are confident that the band you choose can offer the variety that your guests will love. The very best bands will read the room and our advice is to trust their experience in getting the party started!

How Long Before My Event Should I Book A Wedding Band?

There is nothing worse than seeing people miss out on the perfect party band because they left things just that bit too late.

Most bands that do this professionally are booked up a year or two in advance of the event date. Our exclusive Wedding bands are among the most popular in the UK and are extremely busy.

If your Wedding falls on a busy peak summer date, we recommend booking your Wedding band as soon as possible. Ideally, the second you have your venue booked, you should be aiming to book one of the many professional Wedding bands we have to offer!

What Are The Most Popular Styles Of Professional Bands For Hire?

Whether you are hiring wedding bands, a party band, or a corporate Wedding band, you can rest assured that you will have a plethora of choice when it comes to live music styles and genres.

Almost every single genre you can imagine is on offer with our incredible cover bands.

Rock & pop is without a doubt the most popular Wedding band style, and is always guaranteed to get guests on the dance floor! A typical Wedding band's repertoire will of course include a mix of songs to keep everyone entertained.

You can also hire acoustic singers, soul bands, saxophonists, folk bands, jazz bands, roaming bands, wedding bands, and even sound limiter-friendly bands that are set up to deal with noise restrictions and any noise limiter you may encounter at a Wedding venue.

How Much Does It Cost To Hire A Live Band For A Wedding In The UK?

The prices of hiring wedding bands or Wedding bands in the UK can vary depending on these specific factors.

  • How many musicians are in the band
  • How far the Wedding band has to travel to your event location
  • Their experience
  • Your Wedding date

Typically, the cost of a wedding band or local band for hire in the UK averages between £1200 - £1700.

This fee includes the Wedding band providing their own PA system, all equipment, performing live sets, and in most cases, providing backing tracks or DJ sets in between their live entertainment.

And of course, providing infectious energy and filling the dance floor!

How Far Will Wedding Bands Travel For Events?

Our Wedding bands for hire will travel across the UK and regularly perform live music UK-wide for private events, weddings and parties.

If you're looking for a high-energy local band to take your event to the next level, you are sure to find Wedding bands near you.

To keep costs manageable, we recommend shortlisting Wedding bands that are near to your location. This will keep travel costs, and any potential accommodation costs down to a minimum.

Will Wedding Bands Perform At Corporate Events?

Hiring a party band or a Wedding band doesn't have to be for a wedding or birthday party. We have some of the best Wedding bands in the UK that are experienced in providing show-stopping live music for corporate events, awards ceremonies, and Weddings.

No matter your special occasion, we can help you decide on the right live entertainment for your event.

Can your venue accommodate Wedding bands and their equipment? Are there any power or lighting considerations? Would you like the party band to get involved with any other aspects of your Wedding?
