"A fantastic night crammed with entertainment"

"We booked our wedding band in January 2016 with LiveBand Entertainment and we’re so glad we did. True to their word they found us the most amazing band ‘Sound’. The process was so stress free, exciting and we really felt like we knew the band before they arrived at our venue. Thank-you so much LBE. You were brilliant as were our band.”

Megan and Andrew 2016

“LiveBand Entertainment thank-you so much for helping us book our wedding band. We had no idea what we were doing or what we wanted. You helped us every step of the way. Highly recommended.”

Mr & Mrs Stewart 2016

“Where do I start, from the minute I contacted LBE they were so friendly, down to earth and approachable. I couldn’t believe the standard of talent we had to choose from. Our original band let us down so we got in touch with LBE last minute. We were doubtful we’d get anything but LBE sorted everything within days we’d booked our band, planned our first dance and were free to get on with our last minute wedding plans without having to worry about the band. This was all taken care of thanks to LBE. We ended up with a band 100 times better than our original booking. (Must have been fate.) I can’t thank you enough. You made our wedding day the best it could ever have been. Thank-you”

Mrs Daisy Richardson 2016

"We came across LBE after searching local live bands. Absolutely loved their website. We struggled to choose from all their amazing bands at first but eventually decided on Functown. The whole process was faultless. The team were extremely friendly and approachable throughout. We were so incredibly pleased with our band choice. Everyone had a fantastic evening. Thank-you"

Mr and Mrs Eastick 2016

"I booked my band through LBE to play live music for my wedding ceremony, drinks reception and evening entertainment. I expected this to take weeks to organize but in days I had everything booked, songs chosen, timings arranged, leaving me with amble time to take care of everything else. Brilliant service. Highly recommended."

Angie and Neil 2016

Frequently Asked Questions

Is it customary for a band to be fed at a function?

At a function where a meal is being served it is general practice for the band to be provided with a meal. This is standard practice at wedding receptions and parties where the band will be there for several hours. The quote given for the price of the band takes into account that the band will be fed so please speak with your caterers as soon as possible about this as it is possible to negotiate quite a reasonable rate for just mains as long as you mention it early in the booking process. The band generally eat during speeches which is usually just after the guests have eaten their main course.

What styles of music do your bands play?

Our versatile musicians specialise in styles including: jazz (traditional, swing, modern, funky), latin, cocktail swing, funk, and lounge grooves, soul, Motown and ska. Essentially, we’re likely to have what you’re looking for unless you’re after a hard rock or Death Metal band.

Do you have a cancellation policy?

All our bands are in high demand therefore if you want to cancel your booking you may lose your deposit depending on the circumstances.

Some of our guests are very shy. How do your band propose to get them up on their feet?
