Leeds Wedding Band Booking Guide

As a leading live entertainment agency in the UK, we provide live wedding music for thousands of West Yorkshire events every year. If this is the first time you've hired a party band, you're bound to have lots of questions. Below you'll find answers to some of the most common queries.

How much do Leeds wedding bands cost to hire?

The price of a wedding band in Leeds typically starts from approximately £1000-£1500. Several factors can affect your quote, such as travel costs, peak season dates, the number of musicians in the band, early arrivals/late finish times, and extended set times.

What does the band's fee include?

All of our Leeds party bands come fully self-contained with a sound system and lighting, so you won't need to provide a thing. With every function band offering free playlists between live sets, you can leave the entire evening's entertainment in the band's capable hands.

The following package is typical for wedding bands in Leeds.

  • 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

From the moment of your enquiry, you'll have a dedicated member of our team on hand to answer any queries. From logistics and venue sound requirements to song choices, we have the experience to ensure your event runs according to plan.

Do I need to book a DJ as well?

All of our evening wedding bands offer free playlists between sets free of charge, so you won't need to hire a separate DJ. If you'd prefer to have someone on hand to manage the music on the night, many of our bands also offer an optional DJ service that involves a band member DJing throughout the evening.

Of course, if you have the budget and space, a professional DJ is always a fantastic addition to the evening entertainment. Head on over to our wedding DJs section to find out more.

How many musicians are in a wedding band?

We represent an extensive roster of bands to cater for a range of budgets and wedding venues.

A typical wedding band line-up will often feature three or four musicians to include a mixture of lead vocals, guitar, bass, drums and keys. For larger events, you may like to extend this to include additional vocalists, horns (sax, brass section etc.) and percussion.

Below you'll find examples of the most popular line-ups we offer.

  • 3-piece band: Lead Vocals/Guitar, Bass, Drums
  • 4-piece band: Vocals/Guitar, Keys, Bass, Drums
  • 5-piece band: Vocals/Guitar, Keys, Bass, Sax, Drums
  • 5-piece band: Male Vocals/Guitar, Female Vocals, Keys, Bass, Drums
  • 6-piece band: Male Vocals/Guitar, Female Vocals, Keys, Bass, Sax, Drums
  • 7-piece band: 2 x Vocals, Keys, Bass, Drums, 2-piece horn section

What type of music do wedding bands play?

Our popular wedding bands in Leeds typically perform an extensive mixture of songs to appeal to a wide range of guests. You can expect to hear well-known party classics from every decade, including soul, Motown, 80s, indie/rock, dance and contemporary pop/chart hits.

If you're looking for a covers band that focuses on a particular genre, we also represent a number of swing bands, 50s tribute bands, soul bands, 80s wedding bands, indie bands and 90s dance bands.

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 does 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.

Where do your Leeds wedding bands perform?

All of our cover bands are available to hire across West Yorkshire, including Bradford, Huddersfield, Wakefield and Halifax. If you're organising an event in Leeds, you may also be interested in our Leeds bands for hire, Leeds string quartets and Leeds jazz bands.

Bands For Hire Reviews

In response to your questionnaire I would give every question a 10/10. The band were fantastic, and remained in good humour throughout what was a pretty lively evening to say the least. I can't thank Version One enough for making the evening what is was and would highly recommend them as well as Bands For Hire.
