CHOOSING LIVE WEDDING ENTERTAINMENT
Planning your wedding should be a process that you enjoy and have fun with. And that mentality should certainly apply when you’re choosing your wedding band. This is where the fun really starts, but that’s not to say hiring a band is always easy. Many people take the wrong approach and find that it all becomes stressful and frustrating. Here at Music HQ, we make it easy for you to hire some of the very best bands on the wedding circuit, no matter what kind of band you’re interested in hiring.
Your live band will be handed the task of getting the party started and getting your guests up on their feet. That’s why only the best will do. Music HQ can help you whether you’re in need of an 80s wedding band to kickstart those nostalgia vibes, an acoustic wedding act to start things slowly and get everyone in the right mood or a 4-piece rock band to really fill the dance floor from the first minute until the last.
Here are some things you should know and some things to think about when the time comes for you to choose your wedding band. This wedding is the biggest day of your life, so we want to help you get it right.
Local Wedding Bands with Plenty of Experience
We have some of the best British wedding bands for you to choose from, and these bands have plenty of experience on the wedding circuit. We offer South West bands and experience wedding bands in South Wales too. So, if you want local acts who know what it means to really bring what’s required for a wedding performance, we’ve got what you’re looking for.
It’s important to know that you’re in safe hands when choosing a wedding band. No bride or groom wants to find that they’ve got a band that’s never played a wedding before because it rarely turns out well. Performers with experience tend to know when to play the hits, when to pull out the cover songs that get people dancing and when to slow things down.
The Ultimate Party
What it all comes down to is your desire to create a party that you, your partner and your guests will remember for a long time to come. Everyone wants their wedding to be remembered for the right reasons, and finding the right wedding band is a big part of that. Hiring a wedding band will be the thing that decides whether your party truly rocks or not.
The bands for hire we offer have proven themselves in this regard. You can book entertainment with us in confidence and safe in the knowledge that they can deliver on your big day. It doesn’t matter whether you choose a live act or a DJ set, you want those party vibes and this is what you should be thinking about when choosing the act.
Romantic Wedding Music & Your First Dance
For many people, choosing a wedding band is about getting the right music for their wedding from respected wedding bands. Whether that means hiring soul bands, tribute bands or rock and pop bands is irrelevant. If they can make your day feel more romantic and more special, they’ll have succeeded. And a big part of this is your first dance.
UK weddings tend to place a huge importance on the first dance, and learning that first dance will most likely involve the music being played by your band for hire. They’ll ensure that the music is sorted and on point so the only thing that you’ll have to worry about is not falling over during the most difficult part of your routine.

The Right Fit for Your Big Day
What really matters is finding the wedding band that’s the right fit for you. If you’re still in love with 90s music, you can hire a 90s pop covers band. Simply having all of your favourite songs playing on your big day can make it feel even more personal and specific to you. You can choose a DJ package, 80s wedding bands or acoustic sets; whatever’s right for you.
You might want to balance this with what you think will fit best for your guests at your wedding reception. That’s something you should definitely think about but if you choose an experienced band that knows how to mix things up and give everyone a bit of what they want, this shouldn’t be much of a problem for you at all.
Staying on Budget
Another thing you’ll need to give some thought to when hiring a wedding band for your reception is the cost involved. The cost of a wedding band will vary depending on a variety of factors, but be sure to factor this into your overall financial plans for your wedding. You don’t want to get to the end of the process and then realise you have no money left for a band or DJ.
Staying on budget really is important because a great live show will be tainted if you feel like you’ve put your finances at risk! However, you shouldn’t worry too much because there’s a UK wedding band out there to align with just about every budget. Don’t feel you have to spend more than your budget allows for either.
Real Peace of Mind
When you finally find the right wedding band for your wedding reception, the sense of relief you feel is immense. Knowing that you have a live act that you can really rely on takes one worry off your mind, and when you’re in the middle of planning a wedding, that’s something that is massively beneficial for you. There’s already enough for you to worry about.
When the time comes to hire a wedding band, we’ve got you covered. We fully understand the needs you have and we have a wide range of bands to suit those needs, there’s everything from rock to Motown tribute bands, as well as just about everything in between.
A Reliable Service
We offer reliability that can’t be matched by any of our rivals. When you choose one of our function bands, you will be able to have confidence in them delivering when the big day comes around. They will show up on time, know when to play which songs and how to interact with the audience.
