Bristol Wedding Band Booking Guide

If this is your first time hiring a wedding band, you're bound to have lots of questions. We've put together the following set of FAQs to answer any initial queries you may have. If you need further information about one of our bands, just drop us an email, and one of our team will be happy to help.

How much does a Bristol party band cost to hire?

There are a number of factors that can affect the price of a wedding band, but on average, you'll find our wedding bands range between £1200 and £2000.

Factors that affect fees can include the number of musicians in the band, travel expense, day of the week, time of the year, and time at the venue. For example, a band may charge slightly more to set up earlier in the day or stay past midnight.

What's included in my quote?

In general, a party band will provide an all-inclusive quote to cover everything you'll need on the day. This usually includes the following:

  • 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

Do your Bristol wedding bands offer a DJ package?

All of our evening function bands include free playlists between their sets as standard. This means a laptop or device will be left to play throughout the evening until midnight.

If you'd prefer a dedicated DJ service, many of our party bands do also offer DJ sets for a small additional fee. This generally involves a member of the band taking requests, making announcements and mixing tracks throughout the evening.

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 separate 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 will the band start their sets?

Your wedding band will be happy to fit in with your schedule. As a rule, we recommend that the band starts no earlier than 8:30 pm/9 pm to avoid peaking too early on in the evening.

How long does the band take to set up?

Function bands typically take around an hour to set up and sound check. If you've booked a larger party band, you may need to allow between 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Do your wedding bands offer acoustic sets?

Yes, many of our cover bands also offer the option to add acoustic sets earlier in the day during the drinks reception. Just let us know exactly what you're after, and we'll send you a quote.

What type of music do your Bristol wedding bands perform?

We represent a wide range of Bristol wedding bands covering every style of wedding music imaginable, from jazz, swing, 50s rock 'n' roll and golden oldies to soul, Motown, rock, pop and modern chart music.

Most of our wedding bands in Bristol perform a varied selection of music to appeal to guests of all ages. From Chuck Berry, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to Bruno Mars, The Killers, Mumford and Sons and Ed Sheeran, our cover bands will ensure the dance floor remains jam-packed at all times!
