If this is the first time you've hired a function band in Bedfordshire you're bound to have a number of questions. That's why our team of wedding entertainment specialists have put together the following guide so you can hit the ground running.

How much do Bedfordshire wedding bands cost to hire?

We represent over 100 wedding bands in Bedfordshire at various price points. You'll find typical fees for a 3-piece or 4-piece wedding bands range between £1000 and £1500. A number of factors can affect your end quote such as travel expense, additional hours on the road, set-up and finish times and the time of the year.

What's included in the wedding band's fee?

All of our Bedfordshire cover bands offer a full wedding entertainment package tailored specifically to wedding receptions. These typically include a sound system (speakers, amplifiers etc), a lighting rig for the stage area and dance floor, and free iPod music/DJ playlists between sets as standard. This means you'll have your whole evening covered without the need to hire a separate DJ after your band have finished.

Below is a brief outline of what you can expect from most wedding music bands in Bedfordshire:

  • Set up and soundcheck from 5:30 pm/6 pm
  • 2 x 60 minute or 3 x 40 minute live sets
  • DJ Playlists throughout the evening
  • Professional sound system (PA system, speakers etc.)
  • Lighting rig
  • Public Liability Insurance
  • PAT tested equipment

Most wedding bands in Beds base their quote on a midnight finish, however, if your venue offers a 1am finish time, please just let us know and we can quote accordingly for the extra time.

Do your Bedfordshire function bands provide a DJ service?

Whilst all of our live wedding bands include free playlists in their quote, a number of our bands also offer the option to add a professional DJ service for a small additional fee. This entails one of the band members taking requests on the night, interacting with your guests and mixing tracks on the night.

What type of music do wedding bands in Bedfordshire play?

At Bands For Hire, you'll find wedding bands that cover a diverse range of music that includes old school classics from every decade as well as contemporary pop and chart music.

With such a varied range of ages to cater for, it's vital to ensure there's a little something for everyone. That's why our live wedding music bands have spent years fine-tuning their setlists to create a high energy evening of music that's sure to get your guests dancing.

With over a thousand talented musicians on our books, we offer a diverse and select range of wedding bands to suit every occasion. From a lively and dynamic 3-piece indie rock band, to a pop covers band with additional keys, right through to a soul wedding band featuring male and female vocals, horn section, percussionist and choreographed dance routines.

Whatever budget you're working with, you'll find a covers band in Bedfordshire that meets your requirements.

What time will the band arrive to set up?

For evening wedding receptions, our bands typically quote to arrive from 5:30pm/6pm.

If the band are performing in the same room as your wedding breakfast and speeches, it's often a good idea to wait until the meal has finished before the band load-in and set up.
