Wedding Band Hampshire

wedding band hampshireWe are quite different to many other Hampshire wedding acts as we perform live music as a two piece band to suit any budget. Band size, on the other hand, does not affect the quality of sound whatsoever. As much as we perform alongside our custom backing tracks, we're also extremely professional and rather experienced musicians. Our main line up consists of electric guitar, keyboard with male and female vocals. However, you may choose to see/hear more musicians on stage. Simply let us know in the form below and we'll make it happen!

Our set list's genre and style also include only the very best of pop, rock, indie, funk, disco, jazz, blues, swing, rock'n'roll and soul. So, you won't have to worry if everyone will be enjoying themselves or not. However, the only complaint you're most likely to get is the sore feet the next day!

Wedding Music Band Costs

Wedding Band Hire Cost

A wedding can be expensive and although many event organisers want a wedding band for the fantastic atmosphere they add to an event a major concern are the wedding band hire cost. These can and do fluctuate between hundreds to thousands of pounds and quite often it is not clear to see the additional value between the many different prices quoted sometimes by very similar acts.

So, how much does a band cost for a wedding?

Before you can get to the band cost for a wedding it is important to establish what it is you want from your event live music.

  1. Do you want to hire a duo or a large band?
  2. When do you want them to play, early in the day during the dinner or at the evening reception for example?
  3. Would you pay extra for a band to travel to your event?
  4. Are you happy paying 20% extra to book through an agency or band listing website?

Budget wedding band hire cost:

Once you are sure of your requirements, the task of finding your ideal wedding music band can begin! This itself can be an difficult task with many fantastic sounding bands around but not a great deal of current information.

Hiring a Wedding Music Band

It's questions time indeed:

How do you choose between any wedding music band?

Firstly, this decision should be based around the music you want at your event. While there are many specific genre bands out there, it's more about what you and your guests want.

Wedding Music | Hiring a Band or DJ for wedding music?

Wedding Music

Wedding Music

wedding musicHow do you choose the wedding music that suits your day the best? Firstly, there are a number of important factors you need to consider when hiring wedding music:

Band or DJ for wedding music?

Some wedding music organisers may want a DJ because they believe that they are cheaper than a live band. Although the average cost of a DJ has increased in recent times and there are many live bands over-charging for wedding performances, it certainly isn't the case that every live wedding music band is expensive. (For example, as a hi-tech duo we're much more affordable than some DJs, not to mention most wedding bands!) Also, a live band can provide recorded music before, during and after the live music (like the DJ service we supply!) which can save you money whilst providing an entire evening of unique wedding music. It is also common for wedding reception bookings to hire both; a live band and a DJ playing between each other's sets.

What wedding music should you have?

This will depend on your own musical tastes (as well as that of your guests!). Generally, the songs performed will be suitable for all in attendance and to the event itself. Our repertoire of 200+ songs range from 1940s to today's top hits covering pop, rock, funk, blues, rock 'n roll and soul genres.

What are the average costs for wedding music?

For us, this question is simple to answer; the cost is the same as all the other events we perform! We do not charge you extra just because you're having a special day! 🙂 Our prices for live band performances are based on the location and day of the performance while considering the type of wedding band or wedding duo you require.
