Typical wedding party


A wedding band can really make or break your wedding reception. You want your guests to have a great time, and the band is a big part of that. Here are a few tips for choosing the right wedding band:

Firstly, the band should be set up and ready to go before the guests arrive. This will give them a wow factor and set the tone for a great evening.

Secondly, the party can start with the traditional first dance, perhaps followed by a father-daughter dance or other special dances. The best time to start the informal part of the evening is after all the guests have arrived and settled in, around 7.45pm to 8.15pm. In summer, the evenings are generally warm and still light, so starting a little later is no problem.

Thirdly, make sure the band has a good mix of music to keep everyone entertained. They should have a repertoire of both fast and slow songs, as well as some classic wedding tunes that everyone knows and loves.

Fourthly, it is important that the wedding band has experience performing at weddings. They should know how to keep the party going and get everyone on their feet. Ask around for recommendations or read online reviews to find a reputable band.

Finally, don’t forget to factor in the cost of hiring a wedding band when you’re budgeting for your big day. It’s worth it to splurge on a good band that will make your wedding reception one to remember!


“Looking the part” is very important for wedding bands. At a wedding, the band members always dress smart in black tie to respect the significance of the occasion. The stage will be laid out with a back drop, carpet and extensive and effective lighting which sets the mood and atmosphere for what will undoubtedly be a great night. Having a wedding band that looks the part is essential to make sure that your wedding is a success.

First dances

A wedding band will always enjoy playing the first and father-daughter dance because it is a great way to start the evening and give the bride and groom lasting memories of their special songs. After the start of the first dances, guests will want to join the happy couple on the dance floor, signalling that the formal part of the day is behind them and that the party is about to start in earnest. After all, what’s a wedding reception without a little dancing? The wedding band knows how to get guests out on the dance floor and keep them there all night long, ensuring that your wedding reception is a truly memorable occasion that you and your guests will treasure forever.

(please ask about special requests)

First set

A wedding band can really set the tone for your wedding reception. If you want your guests to be up and dancing from the start of the night, then a high-energy set is the way to go. On the other hand, if you want to create a more relaxed atmosphere, we can play all the classics that will get everyone in the party mood. We don’t want to compete with your guests when they’re enjoying the evening buffet, so we typically end our live set and start the DJ set when food is served.

Second set

A wedding band is a must-have for any wedding reception. Not only do they provide entertainment for your guests, but they also help to create an atmosphere of fun and excitement. And what better way to get your guests into the party spirit than by introducing our famous party hats, masks and props? It might seem a bit cheesy at first, but it certainly is an ice breaker with the children and sometimes the bride who are often the first to let their hair down. It is always great fun. Meanwhile, people will have gone to get their smart phones because they will want to take selfies and catch the moment. This is when our photographer comes into his own. During this time, he knows what’s in the box and consequently will be able to capture all the best shots, when you and your guests are least likely to know you are being photographed. So please enquire about adding this as an option – it’s sure to make your wedding reception one to remember!

Last set

As the wedding band moves into their third and final set, everyone is ready to really let loose and dance the night away. This is the time for all the classic singalong and shoutalong tracks that will bring everyone together on the dance floor. The bride and groom will be the focus of attention as we approach the end of the night, and the night will end with a big crescendo giving guests a final chance to wish them all the best for the future. Our photographer will be on hand to capture all the special moments, ensuring that this magical night is remembered forever.
