FAQs

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

Let’s get something straight; function 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 functions – 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, function bands need to get the balance right, to be able to adapt and read how a party is progressing.

Function 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 Function 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 function bands are among the most popular in the UK and are extremely busy.

If your function falls on a busy peak summer date, we recommend booking your function band as soon as possible. Ideally, the second you have your venue booked, you should be aiming to book one of the many professional function 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 function 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 function band style, and is always guaranteed to get guests on the dance floor! A typical function 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 function venue. Unique act types such as DJ and Saxophone wedding groups are also becoming increasingly popular!

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

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

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

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

This fee includes the function 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 alongside a DJ service!

How Far Will Function Bands Travel For Events?

Our function 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 function bands near you.

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

Will Function Bands Perform At Corporate Events?

Hiring a party band or a function band doesn't have to be for a wedding or birthday party.

We have some of the best function bands in the UK that are experienced in providing show-stopping live music for corporate events, awards ceremonies, and functions.

Can Someone Help Me With Hiring Function Bands?

Picking the best band is only part of the process, as you must also consider a few other things if your event is going to be the swinging success you have always dreamt about. That’s where we can help. We’ll talk you through the process, from start to finish. Can your venue accommodate function bands and their equipment? Are there any power or lighting considerations?
