Our Guide to the best
Wedding Bands Lancashire has to offer

The far-reaching county of Lancashire has a long heritage of music and entertainment, from the innocent days of Rochdale lass Dame Gracie Fields, right up to the folk-rock of Steph Fraser, the art-pop of Rae Morris and soul-pop of Charlotte OC, and tenor Alfie Boe. Lancashire is full of X’s too – music producer Richard X is from Whalley, X-factor semi-finalist Diana Vickers comes from Blackburn, and Liberty X singer, turned lead singer for Wet Wet Wet, Kevin Simm hails from Chorley.

Lancs is home to a wide range of music venues – from Blackpool’s Winter Gardens Opera House, and Blackburn’s King George’s Hall, to UCLan’s 53 Degrees in Preston, and Sanctuary Rock Bar in Burnley. The county hosts plenty of great music festivals too, including the award-winning Lancaster Music Festival, the Ribble Valley Jazz & Blues Festival, The Beat-Herder Festival – which bills itself as “an orgy of beats and barminess” – and the family-friendly Cloudspotting Music & Arts Festival at Gisburn Forest.

Hiring a Wedding Band In Lancashire


How much does it cost to hire wedding bands in Lancashire?

The cost of a wedding band 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.
