What event planners say about our suppliers


We had an amazing evening at our October wedding - thanks so much for being there! You made it an even more special party on our big day, and our family and friends appreciate your effort so very much. We've had lots and lots of positive feedback about your energy and how good you made everyone feel. 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.


First class very nice lady






How to choose a wedding / function music band



If you're looking to hire a Function & Wedding Music Band for your wedding, corporate or private celebration in Manchester, take a look at our extensive catalogue to find the best option for your event. You can filter Function & Wedding Music 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:

Importance of the right kind of music cannot be overlooked in any function, especially in a wedding. This is because; in such celebrations, guests look forward to enjoy and dance. 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

When choosing a band, you have to make sure to see if the band has a varied and extensive repertoire. This is because; a wide repertoire means that the band will be able to connect with everyone from the youngest generation to the oldest generation present in the party. There are many function or wedding bands in Manchester providing a playlist which will be a mixture of songs from the 50’s to the 00’s ranging from classic to indie to rock. 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

As wedding and function means a large number of invited guests and big venues. 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.

So, now you can see that choosing a qualified band from the many function or wedding bands for hire on Manchester is actually quite easy. So, while searching for one, keep these three vital points in mind and you will definitely be able to select a suitable one.
