Sheffield Acoustic Bands

Sheffield Acoustic Bands

Welcome to Bands for Hire, the home of the greatest local acoustic bands in Sheffield. We're delighted to be working with so many talented musicians, and for a very competitive fee, you can book for your guests Sheffield acoustic bands who have graced stages at the Edinburgh Fringe festival, the Glastonbury Festival and the Royal Albert Hall to play at your upcoming event. Everyone attending your event will be captivated by our Sheffield acoustic bands' bare bones approach to many of their favourite songs.

Hire a Sheffield Acoustic Duo, Trio or Solo Acoustic Singer / Guitarist

If your event is intended to be a fairly low key affair, similar to a drinks reception, garden party, wedding breakfast, private dinner function, graduation, charity or corporate event, then we'd strongly recommend hiring a Sheffield acoustic band over a full electric live band. Instead of pounding drums and rumbling bass, you'll be treated to soulful singing and delicate but purposeful guitar. Plus, you'll most likely get to hear many of the same songs the larger bands play. You may also want to check out our Sheffield harpists and Sheffield string quartets.

To give you an insight into the kind of thing our Sheffield acoustic bands are into, they certainly like to defy expectations and test the boundaries of their genres. Readymade for their style of band are songs by such classic singer-songwriters as Simon and Garfunkel, Tracy Chapman, Bob Dylan and George Ezra, but our acoustic bands in Sheffield stray into chart pop territory, transforming the works of Calvin Harris, Lady Gaga, ABBA and Madonna into heartfelt ballads, and even tame a few rock behemoths, like Queen, U2, Nickleback and Guns n' Roses into manageable servings. You may also find a few jazz standards from the Great American Songbook, plus numerous blues, Celtic and traditional folk numbers, and even a couple of carefully transcribed classical pieces, such as Edvard Grieg's Morning Mood from the Peer Gynt Suite and Bach's Bouree in E Minor.

Acoustic Cover Bands in Sheffield

Being flexible and accommodating are two of our highest concerns, and, since we hold the firm belief that every event needs some kind of live musical entertainment, many of our acoustic bands in Sheffield are prepared to alter their line ups to better suit your budget and venue requirements. If the situation calls for it, you can hire instead a solo acoustic guitarist, an acoustic duo, an acoustic trio, or, if you're wanting to go the other way and fill out the sound a little more, an full acoustic band, completed by a double bassist and some form of percussionist – more often than not a cajon, to be in keeping with the space conservation. You can book a Sheffield acoustic band from Bands for Hire for events in Barnsley, Rotherham and other parts of South Yorkshire – please feel free to get in touch with any queries.
