Booking a party band for a wedding is not something that couples will do every day. When planning the different parts of your day, whether this is the drinks reception or evening party, awesome wedding entertainment is key.
A full dance floor is only moments away with our incredible wedding music bands in the North West. Here are some of the most common questions that we get asked about wedding band hire to help you through your music journey!
The North West of England is a hotbed for musical talent. The wedding bands and live musicians available to choose from in this area is incredible and you are definitely in for a treat when you start looking through the function bands we have!
Whether you are looking for a 3-piece rock band or even an acoustic wedding band to suit your venue, you are in the home of premium acts, singers and performers. Our acts are listed in order of popularity so simply see our roster below to find out which bands are the best and most in demand in the area!
Whilst the majority of brides and grooms will be searching for a rock pop style of wedding band to really kick things off, there is so much choice when it comes to live music at your wedding.
The truth is, you really can have anything you want. From indie rock bands to singers with saxophonists and rowdy ceilidh bands for a real party, the selection of different wedding bands in the North West of England is amazing.
Whatever your style, you can guarantee there is a band to suit it. When searching for different bands and wedding music, consider your venue and your theme. If you are planning a barn or rustic celebration, a folk or Mumford style band can be the perfect accompaniment to your big day.
The best thing about wedding band hire in the North West is that all of the acts will provide their own musical instruments, amps, lighting and PA system to fit your venue. Basically, the musicians will bring absolutely everything they need to get the party started.
Another thing to bear in mind is insurance certification such as PLI and electrical equipment testing and PAT certificates. When booking a wedding band through an agency such as Warble Entertainment, you can rest assured that 100% of our performers are vetted to ensure they carry the right certificates to be able to perform at your wedding venue. All you have to do is ask your booking agent and we can send them over to you, or your venue in an instant.
When looking to book bands for weddings, parties or corporate events, you are usually dealing with acts who are specifically set up to perform at private events only.
Because of this, it is a good idea to get used to the idea that you most likely won’t be able to see your North West wedding band live before you book them for your special day! You might get lucky and catch a band at a friend’s wedding (or even go wedding crashing!), but beyond this it can be difficult to see the act live beforehand.
We understand that hiring a band for a wedding before you’ve seen them live can sound a little odd, so make sure you watch as many videos as you can of them performing and read reviews from previous gigs!
Couples will often have the debate about whether they should book a band or a DJ for their wedding, or if they are able to afford having both on their big day.
Most wedding bands North West has to offer will be able to provide DJ sets in between performances to keep the dance floor pumping late into the night! This is really useful for couples who want an all in one package from their band.
This also means that certain song requests outside of the bands set list can be added into the DJ set, as well as the ability to have your first dance song played through the software!
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.
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!
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!
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.
The prices of hiring wedding bands or Wedding bands in the UK can vary depending on these specific factors.
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!

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.
