Lancashire Wedding Band Booking Guide

When booking a band through Bands For Hire, you'll be assigned a member of our team to guide you through every step of the planning process, from the initial booking right through to logistics on the day. In the meantime, we've put together the following section of FAQs to get you started.

How much do Lancashire wedding bands cost to hire?

On average, a live wedding band in Lancashire costs between £1000 and £1500. There are a number of factors that may affect your quote including travel expenses, early arrivals, late finish times, the length of time required to play and the time of the year.

As well as our popular wedding music bands, we also represent a wide range of soul bands and party bands suitable for larger weddings and events. Featuring multiple vocalists, sax and brass section, a party band can cost anywhere between £2000 and £5000.

What's included in the band's fee?

We've designed our wedding entertainment packages to include everything you could possibly need music wise: a full sound system, a lighting rig and DJ playlists through the band's PA system until midnight.

The quotes we offer cover all the band's travel expenses, and are calculated on the assumption that the band finish at midnight; if your venue allows you to finish later than this, and you'd like to hang on to your Lancashire wedding band a little longer, please mention this to us beforehand so we can factor the extra time into your quote.

Do your Lancashire wedding bands provide a DJ service?

All of our function bands in Lancashire provide free playlists between sets as standard. This can either be the band's playlist or something created by you.

If you'd prefer something a little more hands-on, many of our live wedding bands also offer a dedicated DJ service for a small additional fee. A manned DJ service involves a member of the band DJ-ing throughout the evening, allowing them to take song requests, make announcements and mix tracks on the fly.

What type of music do wedding bands in Lancashire play?

Our recommended wedding bands in Lancashire generally perform a repertoire of crowd-pleasers that spans across several genres and decades to include golden oldies, indie, rock, pop, R&B and modern pop songs. Designed to cater for guests of all ages, you can expect to hear a setlist jam-packed full of floor-fillers to keep your guests dancing through the evening.

Along with our all-around wedding bands for hire, we also represent a number of genre-specific bands including Chuck Berry and Jerry Lee Lewis style 50s rock 'n' roll bands, retro 80s pop bands and more.

Where in Lancashire do your wedding bands perform?

We have live wedding bands available to hire at wedding venues throughout the North West including Blackpool, Preston, Blackburn, Burnley, Lancaster, Clitheroe and surrounding towns in Lancashire.

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?

Our wedding bands in Lancashire are always 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.
