"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

What to expect from your wedding band – Only the best. 110% Professionalism. Our bands will turn up on time, smartly dressed and equipped. They will have pre-learned any requested songs/first dances.

Your band will need ample time to set up and sound check in order to produce the best quality of sound.

Frequently Asked Questions

What time will the band need to arrive to set up?

Usual arrival time for your band is 6pm. The band will set up, ensure they have  a thorough sound check making sure they have the best sound possible, quick change and be ready to perform from 7:30-8pm (depending on your preference).

** In addition to this, your band can arrive earlier on to set up, sound check and come back later.

Do they need to be fed and watered?

Yes please. Our band may have travelled quite far, therefore they will be hungry thirsty and need refreshing.  We think of our bands as our babies and we’d never want to leave our babies to go hungry and dehydrated.

Do you need a dressing room?

Ideally our band will want somewhere to change. Especially the ladies. A dressing room is not essential however a clean available bathroom would suffice.

Can the band play our first dance?

Most definitely. Our bands will learn and play absolutely any requests for your first dance. They love it. Take a look at this song by Brenda Fassie ‘Sound’ performed as a first dance last year: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L-foBbt4Vvk

Not the most conventional of choices but the band absolutely loved it and still do to this day.
