What event planners say about our suppliers


I don't think I've ever heard a better band than S.H.E! Every single one of our guests thought they were brill, and my mum already knows which band she'll be choosing next year to play her wedding!


Thank You for the great Friday night! You guys were absolutely AMAZING!!! Each and everyone present were floored. In fact, I have shared your details with some friends who plan to get married in the next few months. Thank You for making the night so perfect. Hope to witness another performance soon!


The Plough, Farnham, 2nd June 2017 This is the first review I have ever written but I was so impressed by the atmosphere this talented band created, I feel compelled to write. The whole clientele of the Plough in Farnham were brought to their feet either to watch or to dance and the place simply buzzed with excitement. Sissy, the lead vocalist, was absolutely on form and rocked the place to its foundations. Brilliant night, fab musicians and above all great entertainment, more like a concert than a pub band. Well done to all and thanks to The Plough for bringing this fantastic live act to Farnham. I love the way this amazing band keep close to their fans by continuing to play the pub circuit as well as the larger venues, keep it up! A.N.






How to choose a wedding / function band

You can filter Function & Wedding Bands by price and location, and compare reviews, images and videos to help you make the right choice. When choosing a Live music band it's important to consider:

If you are looking for a function or a wedding band to hire in Bedfordshire, there are certain things that you should keep in mind if you want to find the right one for your special event. Finding a band is not the problem. Finding the right one will be the problem. You have to be careful not to hire a band that will not provide you with the entertainment you need. There are a few simple things that you can do that will help you find the right band. The things that you should do when hiring cover and party bands in Norfolk include;

Watch the band’s videos

If you want to know what to expect from a given band, you should watch the videos that show the band’s performances. This will not only help you to determine whether the band plays quality music but it will also give you an opportunity to see how the crowd that it was performing for reacted to the performance. Stay away from bands that do not want to provide you with videos of their previous performances.

Check the prices

Only hire a band whose entertainment services fall within your budget. You don’t have to part with a fortune to find a good band that will provide a great performance during a special event. However, this does not mean that you should a choose band that provides the lowest quote. Check the quality of the entertainment services provided before making your choice.

Check reviews and ratings of Bedfordshire bands

How are other people who have seen the performance of the band before rate it? Good ratings and reviews show that a given band provides quality entertainment services. Bad ratings and reviews on the other hand show that most people who have seen the band perform were not pleased. Only choose a band that has many positive ratings and reviews.
