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.

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 different 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

We represent some of the most popular wedding bands in Yorkshire which means they’re often booked up quite far in advance. If you have a favourite band that you simply have to have, then we advise booking at least 12-18 months in advance to make sure you don’t miss out.

My venue has a sound limiter, will this be ok for your Yorkshire cover bands?

Sound limiters have become more and more commonplace over the past few years and are something all of our wedding bands are familiar with. If your wedding venue has a sound limiter or in-house PA system, please mention this in your enquiry and we’ll ensure your wedding band is suitable.

Do I need to hire a Yorkshire wedding DJ as well as a wedding band?

All of our Yorkshire bands provide free DJ playlists throughout the evening until midnight, so you won’t need to book a DJ as well.

Most of our bands in Yorkshire do offer manned DJ sets as an optional add-on. This involves a member of the band DJ-ing from a laptop and usually works out cheaper than hiring a separate DJ.
