We thought it was about time we did an updated post on good bands we've seen around lately. In our opinion you should look to spend between £1-2000 on a decent 5-6 piece wedding band. This will ensure you get a decent musician quality plus the sound system and lighting to support them. We had a customer spend £7000 on a band last year.....ouch!
Stone Groove are excellent - they have two keyboard players who also bust out trumpet and trombone on some tunes. They also have nice tweed waistcoat/tie ensembles which look good at country and formal weddings. Stone Groove are fronted by a female vocalist with male backing vocals.
Audio Allstars based in Bournemouth are also good and have won a few wedding industry awards of late. Excellent male lead vocals and musicianship.
29 Fingers bring the entertainment value with wigs and costumes (plus their famous tartan trousers). They cater for a lot of high-end events we're involved with. They describe themselves as 'the BEST international party band' - wow, that's some big talk!
Riptide are a quality 4-piece band if you prefer the more modern hirsute look with no brass instruments or keyboard on the horizon. They're based in Brighton but travel everywhere pretty much.
Shout out to the Leggomen who are a quality group too.
We can personally recommend all these groups. You won't be disappointed with any of them. Rock on!
