Our Guide to the Best
Wedding Bands Yorkshire has to offer

Yorkshire is a massive region with a huge musical heritage – from smooth crooning legend Tony Christie to alt-rocker YUNGBLUD, and Cruel Youth front lady Teddy Sinclair, Def Leppard, The Human League, Moloko, the Arctic Monkeys, and trad brass band The Harrogate Band. Boy- and girl-band stars hail from these parts, including 1-D’s Louis Tomlinson and Kimberley Walsh from Girls Aloud. Not to mention our home-grown Halifax lad, the ever-popular Ed Sheeran, MBE.

Yorkshire hosts live music events in venues county-wide, including York’s Grand Opera House, The Lantern in Halifax and The Live Room in Saltaire – and at festivals such as Deer Shed, Leeds Festival, Grassington, Cornucopia at Kingston upon Hull and Underneath the Stars Festival, in Barnsley.

Hiring Wedding Bands in Yorkshire


How much does it cost to hire a wedding band in Yorkshire?

The cost of wedding bands varies, depending on the line-up, and the options each band offers. In the last 12 months, the average price of a 5-piece band is around £1,600.

The table below shows the range of fees for different types of wedding bands:

How much space will they need?

The table below shows approximately how much space wedding bands of different sizes require:

Size of Wedding Band Performance Space Required
   3-piece band 3 x 3 metres
    4-piece band 4 x 3 metres
     5 and 6-piece band 5 x 3 metres
       7-piece band and bigger 5/6 x 4 metres



How long will they take to set up & soundcheck?

Depending how close to the performance space a wedding band can park, unloading, setting up and performing their sound-check will take around 60 – 90 minutes.

Some busy city hotels require bands to load in via a supplier’s entrance, using a shared staff elevator, which can increase set up times.

Following their performance, it takes around 45 – 60 minutes to pack down and load out.



How long is a typical wedding band set list?

Our bands usually offer two 60-minute performances, though many can perform for longer if needed. You could spread out a two-hour performance by splitting it into three 40-minute sets. Most bands are flexible to fit in with your evening, and will usually take a break of around 15 minutes between sets, during which time they will provide background music from an MP3 player or laptop.

If providing the evening entertainment, a wedding band would typically arrive at 6pm, get set up and perform that all-important sound check by 7.30pm to 8pm, get changed and ready to start the first performance by around 9pm. The second performance would then start around 10.30pm, until a normal curfew of midnight. Many wedding bands offer longer performances or DJ sets at an additional cost, including finishing times of 1am and 2am. You can find the booking options on each wedding band’s profile page. These times serve as an example – the band will always liaise with you and will tailor what they are doing on the night to your particular needs.
