Wedding Music the Duo Band Plays

The live wedding music generally falls into two categories, during the drinks or dinner section and as the main entertainment at the evening reception. Both types of music have different requirements from the music. Light and Shade can supply either type or both on the same day!

We are able to provide live music for the entire day and evening. You can also have the wedding duo to play during the day and then with additional band members, turn into a bigger wedding band for the reception!

Additionally, since marriages are all unique, so are the people involved, so let us help customise a day or night of music that is as subtle or as loud as you need it to be.

How Much Does the Wedding Duo Band Cost?

We also do not charge extra to learn and perform a special song during the booking and our wedding duo or band rates are much cheaper than many others! Send your enquiry below, and let us add the extra sprinkle of magic to your special day!

Wedding Band for Hire | Considerations when choosing a wedding band for hire

Wedding Band for Hire

Wedding Band for Hire

Considering a wedding band for hire? It can be hard to choose the perfect act for your special day. You should consider what you want and need firstly, it's your moment after-all! It's better to pick a wedding band that performs the type of music you and your family and friends enjoy. Also, does your wedding have a theme?
A wedding band for hire (like us for example!) should be able to deliver music in a theme to suit your special occasion if required too. Request a quote

Other considerations when you're choosing a wedding band for hire:

  • Hire Cost - How much to hire a band for a wedding? Will they charge extra for travel? Are they good value for money? We don't charge extra for any event of any type in Hampshire and we charge much less than other wedding bands for hire in Hampshire
  • Flexibility - Will they arrive when I want for setting up and soundcheck? Even mid-week? We are professional musicians and as such we can easily arrive and play at the time or any day that suits you
  • Special services - Can they include recorded music before and after their live set if requested? Can they learn and play a special song? Light and Shade can and are a great choice as your Wedding Band for hire!

Hire a Wedding Band

As you know, when you're considering to hire a wedding band it is important to pick the right performers for the event you are planning.

hire a wedding bandHire a Wedding Band: What to consider

Keeping this in mind, you need to consider what type of band you want to attend your event. Not to mention where they are based (unlike Light & Shade they may charge travel costs), how long you would want them to play for and most importantly, the type of music you and your guests require.

Hire a wedding band: duo

hire a wedding band hampshirehire a wedding band musicA duo is a great choice whether you are planning to have live music immediately after your ceremony, at the drinks celebration, while guests dine or at the wedding breakfast. The perfect alternative in terms of budget and space. A duo at a dinner can play at multiple occasions. For example, while your guests are arriving, during service or between speeches. Also, even after the meal while they transfer to the next part of your day to party. Coverage for all the sore feet the next day is not available! (Average prices from £200)

Hire a wedding band: trio

Trios are a great choice if you are looking for plenty volume at your event but perhaps you are limited on space. For example a reception held in your favourite public house. A trio is also another alternative if you are limited on budget too. (Average prices from £280)

Hire wedding band: large

If you have plenty space and more budget then a larger band might be a better option to choose. Again, you may need to consider what you want to hear from the band. For example, do you want them to have a double bass player, a complete brass section, or a rapper/beat-boxer combined with dancers and light shows? (Average prices from £350-£1000)

In all cases, Light and Shade can provide live wedding bands to hire in duo, trio or larger band format.
