Wedding Band Hampshire Hire a Wedding Band in Hampshire Area

You already know that any number of musicians in wedding band Hampshire selections can provide the live music at your wedding. So, why rather hire Light and Shade?

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!

Wedding Band Hampshire Music

As a professional wedding band in Hampshire, our repertoire consists of over 200 songs. These range from 30's immortal classics to today's top dance floor filler hits. 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 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 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.
