What event planners say about our suppliers


A really, really late THANK YOU to everyone in Bad Girls Groove for playing at our wedding and making it a day none of us will ever, ever want to forget! If there was ever a band who knows the meaning of "let's get this party started!" then it's you guys. Our guests were absolutely bowled over by you, telling us that they'd never heard such an amazing band at a wedding. If anyone asks us to recommend a great wedding band, we know just what we're going to say! Thank you all again!


I was really impressed by Jess! I invited her to sing for my birthday party and Wow! Everyone did really enjoyed her performance! There is something in Jess' voice that really touches your soul. She is more than what you might expect from a function singer. She pours emotion into her songs, and you can't help but be captured. Jess' voice ranges from dark and sultry blues to frenzied hard rock and back to smooth, polished jazz as well as swing. She's just unique as well as being a lovely young woman. I will definitely book this superb singer again in the future! Don't miss her!


Choosing a band for any event can be quite daunting and this is something I know from my previous experiences. However, the promotional video Chartz released will erase any doubts one may have. It is simply superb and Ellie and Alex sounded exactly the same way, if not better than, how I have heard them in real life.






How to choose a wedding / function band



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

To hire a cover or a wedding music band in West Sussex, you should always start by ensuring that your venue have the relevant license and also ensure that they have decibel or noise limiters. If they have set their noise limiters too low, then a party band will be not possible. This is due to the high risk of equipment damage. At such situation, you should consider a quieter style act like swing and jazz.

Also ensure that the venue has power and enough space. If it happens that the venue has a small performance space, a 10 piece band will not work. As a typical rule, a space of 14x14 feet is enough for a 3-4 piece band. If a band has many members, then it will need a larger space. Most the live music bands are flexible and will try to fit in any performance space. Moreover, for a band to perform efficiently, it will require a safe power supply. In case you are holding the event in a Marquee; ensure that the Marquee suppliers supply adequate power generator.

Also think about the best time that the band should set up. In case the band will perform in the same room where the days proceedings will be taking place, then it will be appropriate if the band sets up earlier in the day. This may increase the cost although there will be no interruptions.
