How much do Dorset Party Bands cost?
Party Bands in Dorset cost from £154 to £10195. The average price in 2021 was £1781. Prices vary depending on experience, demand, size of act, travel costs and the specs of the equipment provided. Artists travelling into Dorset from further away will usually charge more than a local act due to travel time and fuel costs.
We will always do our best to help you find Party Bands on your budget, so please give us a call if you can't find what you're looking for.
