Sussex Wedding Band Booking Guide

We understand that planning a wedding can be a complex and lengthy process and so it's important to have all the information you need in advance. That's why our team at Bands For Hire have put together the following list of FAQs to help you get started.

How much does a West Sussex wedding band cost to hire?

We only represent musicians that meet our very high standards, ensuring that you receive a highly professional service and an incredible live performance on the day.

Our wedding bands typically start in the region of £1000-£1200 for a 3-piece or 4-piece band in their local region. Factors that can affect the price of your wedding band include travel costs, early set-up / late finish times, seasonal increases and the number of musicians in the band.

What do your West Sussex wedding bands include in the price?

To make things simple for you, our bands offer an all-inclusive quote to cover everything you'll need on the day. This usually includes a sound system, lighting rig, two or three sets of live music and music throughout the evening to keep your guests on the dance floor.

Below is an example of a typical wedding band package:

  • 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets to finish by midnight
  • Professional PA system (Speakers, mixing desk, amps etc)
  • High-quality lighting for performance area and dance floor
  • DJ Playlists before, between and after live sets until midnight
  • Travel expenses

Many of our live wedding bands also offer a full wedding package to include ceremony music, background music during the day and party band sets in the evening.

When hiring a function band through us, you'll be assigned a dedicated member of our team with extensive experience in the industry. We'll be happy to assist with any queries you may have to ensure a stress-free booking process from the moment of your enquiry to the big day itself.

Do your Sussex wedding bands provide a DJ service?

Every one of our wedding bands in West Sussex offers playlists throughout the evening at no extra cost. This is usually supplied on a phone/tablet or laptop and played through the band's PA system. You're also welcome to supply your own playlist if you'd prefer to have your own selection of songs between sets.

In addition to this, many of our wedding music bands also offer a professional DJ service for a small additional fee. This usually entails a member of the band mixing tracks and taking requests beforehand and on the night itself.

What type of music do your West Sussex Wedding Bands perform?

When choosing a live wedding band, it's essential to ensure the style of music played appeals to a wide range of guests. That's why our wedding bands in West Sussex have carefully selected a repertoire that covers an extensive selection of music to get your guests firmly in the party mood.

From 50s and 60s rock 'n' roll, Motown and soul to 80s pop/rock, 90s Britpop and contemporary pop favourites, you'll find the perfect mix of music to suit every age group.

Along with our all-round pop/rock cover bands, we also represent a number of bands that focus on one particular genre such as swing, rock 'n' roll, soul, 70s disco, 80s, 90s or indie.

How many musicians are there in a professional wedding band?

What time will the band arrive to set up?

Our 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 Sussex 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.

How long does a wedding band take to set up?

Function bands typically take about an hour to set up and sound check. If you've booked a large party band, you may need to allow between 90 minutes to 2 hours.

Will our wedding band learn the first dance song?

Absolutely! Our wedding bands will be more than happy to learn a first dance song that suits their line-up and sound. If you have something g particular in mind, please feel free to let us know during the enquiry process and we'll confirm that the song is suitable.

Most bands will learn and perform your song request free of charge, although please be aware that some bands may charge a small fee to cover their rehearsal and studio time.
