West Midlands Wedding Band Guide

It's not every day you plan a wedding and so you're bound to have lots of questions. From wedding music packages to on-the-day logistics, we've put together the following list of FAQs to get you started.

What wedding band packages do you offer?

To keep things simple, we ensure all our quotes are comprehensive. For evening wedding reception bands, your quote will usually cover everything such as travel costs, lighting gear, full sound system and playlists throughout the evening.

The quotes we offer are normally based on the assumption that the night will come to a close at midnight, but if you would like your band for longer and your wedding venue allows it, please let us know beforehand so we can amend the quote accordingly.

Below is an example of a typical package we offer:

  • 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
    • As an additional service, our bands customise a playlist for your wedding, so similar music can be played during breaks. If, however, you have your own music you would like to have played, please ask the band so they can hook up your device to their PA.

How much does it cost to hire a covers band in the Midlands?

We represent a wide roster of cover bands to suit your budget. Our 3-piece bands typically start in the region of £1000, with 4-piece and 5-piece bands ranging between £1200 and £1500.

There are numerous factors that can affect your final quote such as travel expense/time, extended time at your wedding venue and accommodation if required. You'll also find prices can vary depending on the date of your wedding: for example, a quote for a Thursday in October will often work out cheaper than a Saturday in August.

Do your West Midlands wedding bands provide a DJ service?

All of our live wedding bands offer pre-mixed DJ playlists between sets as part of their quote. However, if you're after something a little more hands-on, many of our cover bands also offer a professional DJ service between and after sets for a small additional fee.

A DJ service involves a member of the band selecting and mixing tracks on the night, taking requests and generally being on hand to make announcements as and when required. Always a fantastic addition to the evening's entertainment.

How many musicians are there in a wedding band?

Our most popular bands usually feature at least three musicians. Below are some of the most common line-ups we work with:

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

Of course, there are no limits if your venue has the space! We represent wedding bands that can offer an incredible line-up of 12 or more members to include multiple vocalists, percussion and choreographed dancers for an explosive live performance.

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 live 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?

Cover bands typically take around 60 minutes 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 in the West Midlands do your wedding bands perform?

Our wedding bands in the West Midlands regularly perform at wedding venues across the region including Birmingham, Coventry, Stoke-on-Trent, Wolverhampton, Dudley, Walsall, Telford, West Bromwich, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Nuneaton, Redditch, Shrewsbury, Solihull, Tamworth, Worcester, Burton-upon-Trent, Cannock, Halesowen, Hereford, Kidderminster, Rugby, Stafford, Stourbridge, Leamington Spa, Leek, Lichfield, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Bedworth and more - just let us know where you are.

What type of music do your wedding bands perform?

The majority of our West Midlands wedding bands perform songs in a variety of styles to cater for a variety of tastes. You can expect to hear everything from 50s, 60s, soul, funk and 80s to indie, Britpop, rock, pop and contemporary chart hits.

Many of our wedding music bands do specialise in particular genres or eras, for example, we offer a number of indie wedding bands, soul wedding bands and 80s tribute acts - always a fantastic way to work your entertainment into your wedding theme.

If you wish to revisit the past, we have Ronnettes and Supremes-style girl groups and Beatles and Rolling Stones-style rock ’n’ roll bands. If jazz is your passion, we have a whole section covering everything from Rat Pack to Great Gatsby style bands, or if you want to relive the hits of the 80s and 90s, we have larger than life party bands with a penchant for Madonna and Britney Spears and acts that specialise in indie and Britpop, in the vein of Oasis and Kasabian.

Bands For Hire Reviews
★★★★★

James at Bands for Hire was very quick at responding and very helpful. The Bands For Hire website is very easy to use so you can easily find what you're looking for. Floral Moustache were amazing! The dance floor was packed from start to finish. They were professional and friendly from start to finish and any communication we had with them was always prompt, polite and helpful. They were one of the best parts of our wedding and an unforgettable experience which we wish we could do all over again.
