If you are looking for a band for hire then look no further for you can book bands with us for any type of function or event. You can hire a live party band for a wedding, corporate function, Christmas party, family fun day, company fun day, office party, university ball, and any other. We have big name acts on our books as well as music from all the genres. Whether you are looking for a swing band for a wedding, or a Steel Drum Band for a themed party, we have the right musical acts to get your guests into the perfect mood.

Live Party Band

You just can’t beat live music at an event and when you select a live party band with us you can feel rest assured they will be the best in the business. We have been in the entertainment industry a long time and therefore we can be quite select on who we allow on our books. Only the very best musical acts feature on our lists so when you hire a live party band they will be of the highest quality, and very professional. You can book bands with us for any event in the country, and this nationwide service is available all year round. We have a band for hire to suit all tastes, with just some of the categories and genres including Jazz/Swing, Classical, String Quartets, Pianists, Choirs, Carol Singers, Tribute Acts, Big Name Stars, Music from Around the World, Big Brass Bands, Full Orchestras, Solo Artists, DJs, and more. For big events you can hire multiple acts and receive greater discounts; perhaps a pianist to play during dinner, followed by a Swing band to get your guests up on their feet, before ending the night with a DJ playing classic tunes into the early hours. The multiple combinations are almost endless but you can book bands to suit you and your unique event. 

Band for Hire

As mentioned above we have such a wide selection of musical acts available that we are guaranteed to find a band for hire to suit your demands. Our Tribute Acts are top of the range and feature artists including Elvis Presley, Frank Sinatra and Aretha Franklin, through to Amy Winehouse, Michael Buble and Take That.

We book bands across the country and for all types of venues and occasions so no event has to miss out on our extensive collection of artists. So whatever the occasion, give us a call and invite one of our great musical acts to entertain guests at your next event.
