How to choose Function & Wedding Music Band in London for your event
Multi-genre London party and function bands
If you want your event entertainment to be a real stand-out, a pop or rock cover act might be just what you need. There are plenty of fantastic acts available for weddings, parties and corporate events, around the country, but you need to start your hunt for the right band early on.
Some cover bands will focus on just one artist, while others will cover a whole genre or a selection of musicians in a certain style. Decide which type of band works best for your function, and then start to narrow down the band options available to you. Ideally you want to see your shortlisted bands play live somewhere, before you commit to booking them for your event.
If you're hiring a cover band for a wedding, you might want the band to learn a specific song or songs for your first dance and specific parts of your evening, so make sure you book them well in advance and give them plenty of time to rehearse for your perfect event.
Jazz and Soul Party Bands
As vintage style has taken off over the last few years, we've seen more and more spectacular jazz, soul and swing acts emerging on the entertainment market. If you're having a Gatsby, vintage or retro theme for your wedding, you're likely to be spoilt for choice when it comes to finding a band for your wedding. The feel-good sounds of these performers are sure to get your guests on their feet, and with many acts happy to tailor their appearance to your theme, you're sure to get a show-stopping performance.
Before you hire your jazz, soul or swing wedding band, decide on the style and vibe you want to achieve, and establish how much space is available at your venue for performers. Some acts will have a very active, space-requiring show which may not be appropriate for smaller venues, where a harmonizing trio or acapella act might work better.
Tribute bands are always a hit at weddings, and with so many acts to choose from, with some careful research you're sure to find the right tribute act for your big day. Popular choices for a tribute performer or group include Elvis, The Beatles, Oasis and Adele, but there are countless other top tribute acts to suit your taste and set the tone for your evening.
Starting the search for your wedding tribute act is easiest if you already have a favourite band or artist in mind. This greatly narrows down the number of tribute bands to listen to and review before you make your final choice. Once you've watched all the gig videos and read the reviews, you should have a shortlist of two or three acts to go and see play live, and chat to about how your want your wedding reception entertainment to pan out. You can then finalise your decision and the set-list with your chosen band, including any favourite tracks that they definitely need to include for you and your guests.
String quartet for a wedding reception
One of the most beautiful accompaniments to a wedding reception is the string quartet. Typically providing stunning, classical sounds, the string quartet is a traditional choice for a sophisticated wedding, and one which will bring an extra touch of elegance and class to your reception. While many string quartets prefer to stick to the classics, there are also plenty of ensembles who will put their own spin on chart toppers and wedding hits, delivering unique performances that are sure to delight your guests and create lasting memories.
If you're looking to hire a string quartet for your wedding, there are a number of crucial things to consider. Obviously, you want the tone to be right, so decide if you want to stick to classical sounds or go for a more unique string quartet performance. Secondly, remember that the group will need sufficient space to set up and play their instruments, and may want to check out the acoustic set up of your venue ahead of the big day.
