  • Step 1: Browse through the Birmingham wedding bands on this page, watch the videos and visit the band’s profile page to view more videos, photos and information about setlists and packages.
  • Step 2: Add the band to your shortlist by clicking on the star icon, once you’re happy with your shortlist, send us an email with your event details. Alternatively, you can enquire about each band separately using the contact form at the bottom of the band’s profile page.
  • Step 3. We’ll check availability with the band and send you a quote based in your event location. From here you can reply to our team to ask any questions you may have.
  • Step 4: If you’re happy to proceed with the quote, we’ll just need you to send over your full name and address along with confirmation of the full venue address.
  • Step 5: We’ll send over a contract for you to review and sign along with an invoice for a deposit, equal to approx. 20% of the total fee.
  • Step 6: Once the contract has been signed and deposit paid, we’ll send over a booking confirmation email outlining your booking. You’ll also have a dedicated member of our team assigned to your event who will be available to answer your queries right up to the event date.

How far in advance should I book a Birmingham wedding band?

We represent some of the most popular wedding bands in Birmingham which means they’re often booked up quite far in advance. If you have a favourite band that you simply have to have, then we advise booking at least 12-18 months in advance to make sure you don’t miss out.

My venue has a sound limiter, will this be ok for your Birmingham cover bands?

Sound limiters have become more and more commonplace over the past few years and are something all of our wedding bands are familiar with. If your wedding venue has a sound limiter or in-house PA system, please mention this in your enquiry and we’ll ensure your wedding band is suitable.

Do I need to hire a Birmingham wedding DJ as well as a wedding band?

All of our Birmingham bands provide free DJ playlists throughout the evening until midnight, so you won’t need to book a DJ as well.

Most of our bands in Birmingham do offer manned DJ sets as an optional add-on. This involves a member of the band DJ-ing from a laptop and usually works out cheaper than hiring a separate DJ.

What time will the band arrive to set up?

Wedding bands usually base their quote on a standard arrival time of approximately 5:30 pm/6 pm. If the band are setting up in a different room to the meal and speeches, they'll be able to set up straight away. Otherwise, the band will usually wait until the meal and speeches have finished avoiding any interruptions

What time does the band start their sets?

All of our bands and happy to work with your schedule. As a general guide, we recommend starting the band's live sets no earlier than 8:30 pm/9 pm.

How long does the band take to set up?

Function bands typically take around an hour to set up and sound check, with some larger bands requiring up to 2 hours.
