Our guests came from a really wide range of backgrounds and had very diverse interests, so we needed music that everyone could enjoy. A special thank you to Natascha for that dance - you know the one I'm talking about! - and for doing the requests.


Excellent, Monika and the band provided the perfect atmosphere to our party and help set the evening off in style.

So, if you are losing all patience and cannot decide which band to go for, then do read on. For you convenience, here are the best ways to choose a suitable band from the many Manchester function bands or Manchester wedding bands.

Wide Repertoire

So, all you have to do is search for such a band and talk with the band or the band manager to decide on a playlist which will keep everyone on the dance floor.

Option of Acoustic Set

It is true that in a celebratory function or wedding people love to dance. But, there is one time when the music needs to turn down. As you are planning for a wedding, you are quite familiar with the father-daughter dance or the bride-groom’s first dance. During this time, Acoustic version of the appropriate song will be perfect whereas dance music will kill the mood. So, when looking into function or wedding bands for hire in Manchester, do make sure that they can provide the option of dance numbers along with appropriate acoustic set making hiring them a budget-friendly decision.

Professional Instruments and Equipments

So, it is very important that the band you want to hire has the apt and professional instruments as well as equipments needed during a performance. It won’t matter how good your hired band is, as if the right equipments are not there then they won’t be able to hold the attention of the large number of guests sitting in a big banquet hall.
