Welcome to the home of the best wedding bands Yorkshire and surrounding areas have to offer. Every day we speak with couples who are hiring their wedding music for the very first time!

wedding bands yorkshire

What areas do wedding bands in Yorkshire cover? 

With Warble Entertainment you can hire the best wedding music to cover all of Yorkshire, the North West, North Yorkshire, East Yorkshire, South Yorkshire and of course wedding bands in West Yorkshire.

We also have bands in Barnsley, Leeds, York, Huddersfield, Middlesbrough, Doncaster, Harrogate, Batley, Dewsbury, Keighley, Castleford, Brighouse, Pudsey, Morley and Halifax.

Wherever you are in the UK or England, you can book high energy professional musicians for your big day!

Can we choose the set list for the band to perform?

The best wedding bands Yorkshire has to offer will have a lengthy repertoire to suit guests of all ages. Some guests may want contemporary hits to keep them dancing all night and others may want songs from the 60’s up to present day.

Keeping this in mind is important when looking to have control over the set list. Most Yorkshire bands for hire will be experienced enough to know exactly what songs work best at a wedding and how they can tailor this to create an unforgettable night for your wedding. It is wise to give your band an idea of the songs you do and don’t like but leave the rest to them! 

Will the band provide music in between sets?

When booking a live band performing for your wedding, you will want everyone up on the dance floor all night long. Our top Yorkshire wedding bands know this, which is why they are able to keep the party going, even when they are not performing on stage!

With state-of-the-art DJ software and use of their own PA, a covers band is able to look after background music in between and after their sets. They can also take song requests this way including your first dance song.

How have you chosen the recommended wedding bands in Yorkshire?

Whilst the following is true for all of our wedding musicians and party bands, the live wedding bands in Yorkshire have been stringently vetted through a strict and vigorous sign up process in order to be considered for weddings, parties and corporate events.

We understand that booking wedding bands isn’t something people do every day. We do the leg work beforehand to ensure that the bands are of the highest quality and are able to fulfil every requirement that a professional band for a wedding must have.

How long will the wedding band play for?

The majority of bands will perform either 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets as standard for weddings and parties.

Depending on the flow of your night and what you have planned at your wedding in Yorkshire, different set times may work better! Our advice is that minimising breaks for the band will keep your dance floor full for longer and allow the musicians to keep the energy up as long as possible.

Having your function band perform 3 sets instead of 2 means that have they drag everyone up to the dance floor an extra time. Even though our indie rock bands are highly energetic, this breaks up your unnecessarily.

What if I want Yorkshire wedding music bands for my drink’s reception or ceremony?

One of the best things about wedding bands in Yorkshire is their versatility. Bands can be scaled up and down and are able to prepare themselves for different parts of the day.

Want to walk down the aisle to an acoustic singer or solo guitarist? You can absolutely ask your band to arrive earlier and perform a low-key set during your wedding ceremony. Another option is to ask your wedding band to hang on a little longer and keep your guests suitably entertained during the drink’s reception with some live music!

There are a plethora of wedding entertainment and music options for hire in Yorkshire with Warble Entertainment!

FAQs

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

Let’s get something straight; all our 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 wedding 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 live wedding bands we have to offer!

How Long Does A Live Wedding Band Perform For?

Live bands will always work with you to provide a seamless entertainment package to keep your evening reception lively all night!

When you hire a wedding band for the first time, you might be wondering how long their sets are and what's involved. Whether it's a soul band, a standard party band with male and female vocals, or incredible soul bands, most professional acts will structure their sets with live music split into 2 or 3 different sets.

These will be either 3 x 40 minutes or 2 x 60 minutes.

This is great but you might also be thinking, what's the difference and which is better for a function band? Three shorter sets or two longer indie rock n roll sets? Our advice is almost always to go for 2 longer sets if that works with your schedule.

A wedding band playing live will have an easier time keeping the atmosphere electric and getting guests involved if they are able to keep the momentum up. Having three shorter sets might feel like more value, but it is often a bit scattered. However, roaming bands and other function band styles can work better in shorter bursts of entertainment, but this is often best left to the daytime or early evening to warm things up.

What Are The Most Popular Styles Of Professional Wedding 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.

Modern rock, a classic soul band, hip hop, swing bands, motown bands, indie rock, rock n roll, pop classics and so much more from our function 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.

With a choice of male and female vocals, the best live wedding bands for hire will have something for everyone. As professional musicians, with sound and lighting equipment included (as well as a DJ package to keep the atmosphere going), they know exactly how to keep guests dancing all night long at your evening reception!

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

We also have wedding entertainment for your daytime including, String Quartets, Wedding Harpists, Saxophonists, Wedding Pianists, Wedding Guitarists, Acoustic Wedding Bands and more. Check out your desired band's profile to see what they offer!

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

The prices of wedding band hire or wedding band music 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 the best wedding band or local band for hire in the UK averages between £1200 - £2000.

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!

At Warble Entertainment, it's easy to see how much your wedding music will cost depending on your location by searching within your area. Make an enquiry today and speak to our wedding bands UK experts!

How Far Will Wedding Bands Travel For Events?

Our hand picked 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 music near you.

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

You can also hire acoustic musicians and other live wedding entertainment for background music during your wedding celebrations. Our bands play throughout the entire day and your function band can provide musicians as part of a roaming band during the drinks reception, or a lively party band for your evening entertainment.

Will Wedding Bands Perform At Corporate Events?

Hiring a party band or a wedding band music 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 A Function Band Learn Our First Dance Song?

Of course! Nothing sets the tone for a magical wedding quite like a special first dance. Whether it's a classic ballad or a modern chart-topper, you want it to be perfect. So, you might be wondering, can your chosen band or musical act learn your first dance? The answer is a resounding "yes!"

Many talented musicians have the ability to learn and perform virtually any song you desire. They understand the importance of this moment and will work with you to ensure that the music is everything you've dreamed of. You can provide them with the song's title and artist, and they'll do the rest.

In fact, some bands even specialize in wedding performances and have an extensive repertoire of love songs and first dance favorites. So, whether you want a classic like "At Last" or a contemporary hit like "Thinking Out Loud," they've got you covered.

So, rest assured that your chosen musical act will be more than happy to learn your first dance. All you need to do is communicate your desires with them, and they'll take care of the rest. Get ready to dance the night away!
