At Warble Entertainment, you'll find everything from premium wedding bands to really make your day pop, to bands that you can hire on a budget or with limited space. Warble Entertainment features the UK best wedding bands.

 Trying to find and book a wedding band, or wedding entertainment to delight your guests is just one of the potential headaches you might face. It shouldn’t be. Okay, you’re on a deadline so let’s make the process of choosing the most appropriate wedding reception entertainment an easy one. Some couples hire a DJ, but nothing matches the experience of a live act at a wedding party. Warble Entertainment offers over 2,000 bands for hire, but you need a few pointers to help you make the right decision for you. That sounds like a massive choice, but we recommend that you confirm that booking and start your wedding band hire search as early as possible. These bands get snapped up quickly! The most respected wedding music bands are always in demand, and for good reason. They know the drill and look after the music. They are the professionals, so you get to concentrate on the other important details that make up your exciting wedding day.

Best Wedding Bands For Hire

And finally, with those vital boxes ticked, and decisions made about what style of music will appeal to your guests, you must be eager to pick the group that will forge ever-lasting memories. Warble Entertainment assesses every one of our party bands and monitors every snippet of feedback so that you can choose the right act.

Regardless of where you are based, it is easy to hire UK wedding bands from every area with us.

What Warble Entertainment guarantees is peace of mind, right up to the wedding band playing that first note. Most events run without a hitch, but to cover anything unforeseen we have a 24-hour helpline just in case you need any final reassurance.

It's our aim to help you book entertainment that will make it truly memorable for everyone concerned. Of course, it’s your day, and the bride and groom or happy couple should be in the spotlight, but you know from events that you have attended, happy guests make for a successful party! You want your closest friends singing and dancing alongside you, aunties and uncles joining in the fun, and distant relatives talking about the wedding party for years to come.

Hire Wedding Music Bands Now

You have the musical genre, you have considered some of the songs that you’d all love to hear performed, but other ingredients can really give your wedding reception the WOW factor. That could mean dressing the set to match your overall wedding theme, maybe with photos or video streaming on a big screen in the background? You might even want the wedding band and guests in fancy dress!

As for what the band offers? A professional wedding music band brings everything that you will ever need for a successful and lively party. All acts are different, but with a little communication and planning you can ensure that you piece together exactly what you have always dreamt about. From first dances being learned or provided via the PA sound system, to full DJ sets before, between and after the bands live performances, you can see what extra options are available. Some groups will even provide acoustic sets at earlier points in the day, which are perfect for wedding breakfasts, drinks receptions and even the ceremony itself. Make a plan for what you think will work and then speak to one of our coordinators who will be able to advise on the best band to suit your needs.

Professional musicians are a diverse bunch. Some play in a more subtle acoustic style to create background sounds that complement an occasion perfectly. So, consider if you want a smaller three or four-piece band performing in a more laid back style, or something much bigger that will make for a stunning visual performance? Ideally, you want something unique and exciting, so just when you think that the band has peaked, out comes the saxophone or extra guitar and they crank it up another notch. Those unexpected moments make all the difference.

Some artists sing and dance about the stage, while the ultimate entertainers go even further. They know how to work an audience. Some of those on your guest list will be shy, but with a little coaxing they too can become involved. And when they do they love it, they just need a nudge in the right direction. A wedding singer (or frontman or woman) that knows how to strike the right balance on the night is vital. Being able to make that call comes with experience. Weaving amongst the crowd, getting grandma to join in with one of the old favourites, or a niece to sing and dance to a pop classic will light up a room. Point, click, flash! Cameras will go crazy as guests scramble to get that perfect photo.

When you watch some of the many videos of Warble Entertainment’s acts you’ll get a good feel for a band. But don’t leave it there, speak with our coordinators and planners who deal with these performers each week. You really can’t absorb enough information. So ask those questions: exactly what does your preferred combo offer? And if it doesn’t tell you on a wedding band’s bio, we’ll get you the answers you need to make informed choices.

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

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.

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!
