Surrey Wedding Band Booking Guide

As a leading live entertainment company in the UK, we book thousands of bands for weddings every year. If you're looking to hire a wedding band for the first time, you're bound to have lots of questions, which is why our team of wedding experts have put together the following FAQs to get you started.

What time will my wedding band arrive to set up?

Our Surrey 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.

How long does a wedding 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.

What time does the band start their sets?

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

Do your Surrey wedding bands also offer DJ sets?

All of our Surrey bands include free DJ playlists in their package to ensure the dance floor is never empty. If you're looking for something a little more interactive, many of the party bands we work with also offer the option to add a DJ service for a small fee. A DJ service involves a band member DJ-ing throughout the evening, allowing them to take song requests, make announcements and adjust the playlist to suit the audience.

What areas do your Surrey wedding bands cover?

All of the bands featured are based in the South of England, regularly performing at wedding venues across Surrey, including Banstead, Epsom, Esher, Great Bookham, Guildford, Horsley, Leatherhead, Merstham, Runnymede, Staines, Sunbury, Surrey Heath, Walton on Thames, Weybridge and Woking.

What type of music do your wedding bands in Surrey perform?

At Bands For Hire, you'll find an extensive selection of function bands covering every style of wedding music imaginable. From swing, soul and 60s classics to indie, rock, pop and dance music, we have the perfect party band to suit your requirements.

Most of the wedding music bands we work with have put together a set list to cover all bases, ensuring all of your guests are thoroughly entertained throughout the evening.

Hire a themed/specialist Surrey wedding band

You may be looking to hire a wedding band that focuses on a particular era or style of music. As well as our popular pop/rock function bands, we also look after a selection of fantastic bands that specialise in one particular genre, from Motown bands, Great Gatsby bands, Vintage tribute bands, Mariachi bands, Rat Pack, Swing and 80s tribute bands.

50s Wedding Bands in Surrey

For that truly authentic 50s style wedding, you'll need the music to match. Take a listen to our favourite Surrey rock 'n' roll wedding bands for a show that'll take you right back to the 50s as they dress up to the nines in their 50s style suits and perform rock 'n' roll favourites from Jerry Lee Lewis, Chuck Berry, Buddy Hollie and more.

80s Tribute Bands

If you're looking to add a little bit of 80' glamour to your wedding, why not consider an 80s wedding band for the evening reception. Covering everything from the Power of Love and Livin' on a Prayer to the Baywatch theme tune, they'll be sure to have you and your guests re-living your younger days.

Motown Wedding Bands in Surrey

For that ultimate Motown sound, we recommend Motown Sensation, an 8-piece soul wedding band based in Surrey. With three lead vocalists, their harmonies are just about the closest you'll get to the real thing. The band cover everything from Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Aretha Franklin to the Four Tops and The Jackson 5.
