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.

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

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.
