“Hannah and I just wanted to thank you (and the rest of the band) again for ROCKING IT at our wedding. We can’t even begin to count the positive comments we’ve had about your performance! Thanks for being so accommodating with regards to our choice of first dance song and learning ‘You do something to me’ at such short notice. On tidying up the hall the following morning we found a copy of your setlist. With me being a fully fledged ‘gig geek’, this was a pleasant surprise as I have countless playlists on my ipod of concert setlists that I’ve had the fortune of attending. So you’ll be pleased to know that I’ve created one of your show so Hannah and I can re-live the experience time and again.”

Adam Hollins – Wedding, Surrey

“Booked Goodfellas having heard them at other events. Knew the performance was going to be excellent – but this was a more formal occasion with an older group. Needn’t have worried – the band brushed up on more 60’s music and read and performed to the audience in the amazing and intuitive way we had seen them deliver before. They got everyone, young and old onto the floor. Even pulled in some girls from a wedding in the hotel because our music was much better then theirs!”

Simon Durwent – Wedding, Datchet

“Thank you for your lovely email, we had an amazing day and a big part of that was you guys playing fantastic live music! We are soo glad that we booked you, looking back at videos you all really set the atmosphere. Thank you also for playing our first dance song, you sounded amazing. We will definitely be recommending you for friends events.”

Louise Chivvers –  Wedding, London

“Ridiculously simple, affordable and user-friendly I wasn’t sure about live music with the potential of pandemic related reschedules (we’re on attempt number 3) and I had also left it late for the reason above. By the time I started I was on a couple of pages that said something like “Starting at £1,600…” and when the price came in it was closer to £4,000 with booking fees, transport, expenses etc. I was starting to lose hope. Then, I stumbled across Seventh Second and everything changed. Firstly, the website actually gave me a great sense of the bands I was reviewing. Most had videos of them performing. Others had the audio. I was able to quickly make a “shortlist” by clicking a button on the ones I was interested in. Rocket science, it was not. Then came crunch time, Jon reached out with the news that many of my selections were available. In addition to re-watching/re-listening the clips, I was also able to review the song lists and numerous reviews from previous clients. I had an extremely good idea of what to expect from the bands I was choosing between. Jon – a musician himself and founding member of the team – was at my side throughout the process. A phone call was instrumental (haha) at answering some of my questions as I’d never booked anything like this before. Even the quotes were in a unified manner e.g. same set time, start/finish, everything included. It makes it so much easier that I was simply choosing between the band and then price vs also having to compare mitigating factors that would have caused unnecessary confusion. I don’t intend on getting married again so won’t need them for this specific purpose but I will find a way to use Seventh Second again. Seventh Second are a shining example of what a vendor should be. Great job Jon and team. “

Dave Waterbridge – Wedding, Bristol

David Austero – Wedding, London

“We wanted a wedding band who entertained our friends and family all night and they did. They learnt the song for our first dance even though it was not in their usual repertoire and played it perfectly. They had the best setlists that included music that entertained all the different guests and were great at chatting to us before the wedding to see what tracks would best suit our guests. Somehow, they were able to judge what song everybody wanted to hear next and kept people who would never normally dance up on their feet.

Thanks again, and please pass our thanks to the rest of the band!”

Carlo and Lizzie Hunt – Wedding, Surrey, August 2022

“Rockaoke live performed at our wedding in July 2022 and, oh, they were fantastic! They learned two songs for us, our first dance song “Sail Away” by David Grey, and one of our favourite songs “Blackbird” by Fat Freddy Drop, which was performed so amazingly well! They were professional and fun all at the same time. The booking process with Seventh Second was straightforward, and the ongoing communication with the band on the lead up to the wedding was quick and efficient. There were many changes on the lead up to our wedding day, including postponing a full year and reducing the band from a 7 piece band to a 4 piece band, but nothing was too much trouble for them and they accommodated all changes and restrictions no questions asked. Thank you so much Seventh Second and Rockaoke Live 5 ⭐️ service from start to finish. Highly recommend!! “

“We booked November Soul to play at our wedding and they were absolutely incredible. Guests have passed on many compliments to us – they had us all up and dancing until we were all-but dragged away kicking and screaming for more. We basically told them and Seventh Second what sort of things we liked and put our faith in them to put together a set list that would get everyone of all ages on the dancefloor. They absolutely nailed it! From funk, soul, pop, to a bit of cheeky indie, there was something for everyone. Jess and Tino performed for us as a duo after the service while everyone was having pictures taken and once again they set the mood perfectly with an expertly chosen and beautifully performed set. They were super efficient setting up and packing down and worked around the timings for the day so as to cause no interruptions.”

We’ve already told our friends they need to hire them next year for their wedding 😀 Thanks for making our wedding day the best day ever!”

Everything you need to know about our best wedding bands

Velvet-Sapphire-Best-Wedding-Band-Poses

Below I’ve answered some of the regular and key questions we get asked by couples but if you want to know more or have any other questions, check out our other helpful guides where we cover all these questions in much more detail, head over to our FAQ or T&Cs pages, or get in touch. We are always here and happy to help with expert advice obligation-free.

Can you watch the best wedding bands before hiring them?

The best wedding bands are typically exclusively private events bands meaning watching them live can usually only happen if they can invite you to a private event or if they’re running special showcases for prospective clients to experience their live show. However, most of our best wedding bands have live gig footage on their unique profile pages amongst their other great promotional material so you get a really good idea of how they will perform live at your wedding. If you would like to try and see any of our live wedding bands please contact us and we will help as much as possible.

How far in advance should I hire a popular or best wedding band?

We would always suggest hiring your favoured wedding band 12 months in advance especially if you are looking to hire a band on a peak Saturday (between May and September). However, in some cases, you can hire some of the best wedding bands 8 to 4 months in advance if you are hiring during off-peak season or the band happens to be available. Please bear in mind that the most popular and best wedding bands often get booked years in advance so if you see one that you love and they’re popular it’s best to hire them as soon as you can.

 

How much do the best UK wedding bands cost?

Prices for the best wedding bands in the UK vary depending on the size and style of the band and also if booking for an off or on-peak date. Read our guide on the real cost of wedding bands for all the detail but 3-piece bands generally cost between £750-£1200, 4-piece bands, £850-£2000, 5-piece bands £1200-£2600, and 6-piece bands £1800-3000. A premium, 12-piece showband generally starts from £8000. Our best wedding bands are generally £100-£200 cheaper to hire than anywhere else because we don’t charge commission.

 

Do you have to feed the band at your wedding?

Because a live wedding band will usually be with you for at least 8 hours it’s always a really good idea to supply some food and soft drinks for the duration of their stay with you. This is covered in most booking contracts (including ours) but you can always check with the band as they may not need anything or they may have certain dietary requirements. We always suggest looking after your band because the better you look after them the better they will perform!

 

What are the most popular styles of live wedding bands?

Southside-Sparkle-Best-Wedding-Band-For-Hire

Couples love to hire all sorts of different styles of wedding band but some of the most popular styles performed by the best wedding bands are multi-genre live sets that cover all types of styles and eras for all tastes or pop, rock, funk, or Mumford & Sons style festival folk music.

 

What time do live wedding bands arrive?

Our live wedding bands can arrive at your wedding at any time you need but typical arrival times are between 5pm and 8pm. This works nicely for performance times which usually begin around 6pm to 9pm.

 

What time will the band finish?

Again all our live bands can finish at any time you wish but typical finish times are between 11pm and 12am. If you never want the wedding party to end then our best wedding bands can perform past 12am right up to 3am or 4am. Please ask us for more information.

 

How much space do the best wedding bands need to perform?

All wedding bands including the best wedding bands are very adept at fitting into all sorts of venues but as a general rule, a 3×3 metre space will be sufficient for most 3 and 4-piece wedding bands. As a rule, you usually need to add an extra metre to the space required as you add extra band members but have a look at our full spacing guide here for all the info you need.

 

Can wedding bands perform outside?

All of our live wedding bands love to perform outside and have done so on many occasions at many lovely weddings. If you are looking to have either the whole wedding band or a wedding duo perform for you outside on your special day, our guide on wedding bands performing outdoors is a must-read if you want some top tips and excellent outdoor live music at your wedding.

 

Can the best wedding bands perform during dinner or the drinks reception?

Again, our best wedding bands are more than happy to perform during your wedding breakfast or drinks reception and have done so on many occasions. All our live bands have the capacity, skill and experience to perform during any part of your special day.

 

Do the best wedding bands need stages to perform?

Our live wedding bands do not specifically need stages to perform for you however we would always recommend that if you have access to a stage you take advantage of it as a live wedding band performing on a stage is quite special. If your live wedding band is performing outside or in a marquee, they don’t specifically need a stage but will need solid waterproof flooring and cover from the elements.

 

How long does it take for a band to set up, sound check, and pack down?

Best-Live-Wedding-Band-Equipment-Amp

All live wedding bands generally need 60 to 90 minutes to load in, set up, and soundcheck for your wedding. If you have a tight schedule on your wedding day and there are no delays and the band can unload close to the performance area, bands can set up in 30 to 40 minutes if needed. Pack down and loading generally takes between 40 to 60 minutes but please bear in mind that with larger bands like Flair Twelve set up and pack down can take significantly longer.

 

Can your live bands set up and sound check while my guests are in the same room?

All of our live bands can set up discreetly and silently if needed so they do not disturb you while you are in the same room. They can also always sound check at a later time which is more suitable and often, when venues host everything in the same room, having an experienced live wedding band like ours that can sound check and set up quietly and carefully is essential.

What do the best live wedding bands provide at our wedding?

The best wedding bands provide everything you could need for a fantastic wedding. This includes, (free of charge) at any wedding, party, or event:

  • Top-of-the-range PA system
  • Top-of-the-range stage lighting
  • Top-of-the-range musical and backline equipment
  • DJ/background music and equipment
  • Suitable stage outfits
  • Transport
  • PLI and PAT certificates
  • A friendly and professional attitude!

 

Do I need to provide anything for the live band?

Our wedding bands don’t need too much for them to be able to perform to their max. What they do need includes:

  • A safe space to park their vehicles
  • Ample performance space with enough power supply
  • If performing outdoors, a waterproof, flat, solid stage area with protection from the elements
  • Some food and drink for the duration of their time with you
  • A safe spot to get ready for performing and to relax between sets
  • Access to toilets

Can we use the band’s PA for speeches?

All our live wedding bands are more than happy for you to use their PA for speeches or any other important part of your day. Many of our live bands have multiple microphones and wireless microphones so you can enjoy your speeches or other important moments of your day however you wish.

 

Can we perform with the band?

Bride-Singing-With-Best-Live-Wedding-Band-On-Stage-At-Wedding

Most of our best wedding bands offer a fantastic bandeoke/rockaoke booking option where you, your friends, and your family can join them on stage and become a true rock or pop star! If you want to join one of our bands for a one-off special performance or if any of your guests or relatives want to perform a one-off song (for example your first dance) you are always welcome.

 

What types of music do the best live wedding bands perform?

Our live wedding bands perform every type of music from rock, pop, blues, indie, folk, Motown, soul, funk, hip-hop, RnB, metal, DnB, and punk to name a few. There is so much amazing choice out there with the best wedding bands but you do have specialist bands that sometimes for example only play soul, Motown or ratpack or have specially curated setlists perfect for weddings. However, at the end of the day, the choice is completely yours!

 

Can I choose which songs my wedding band plays?

You can always have complete input and design the ultimate wedding set list with your live wedding band. Combining what you want on your special day with your live wedding bands expertise will mean you design the perfect soundtrack to your wedding.

 

Can a wedding band perform my first dance?

All of our best live wedding bands are more than happy to perform a first dance for you. They can also DJ your first dance or combine live and recorded music so you have the first dance you have always dreamed of. We also have a popular guide on choosing a first dance here.

 

How long do live bands usually perform for?

All our wedding bands usually perform 2×60 or 3×40-minute sets. However, our best wedding bands are also more than happy to edit their set times to match perfectly with your wedding schedule. Although the standard amount of time for live music is around two hours all of our wedding bands are more than happy to shorten or extend their live performance times for you.

 

What happens between the band’s live sets?

Wedding-DJ-Band-Decks-Live

All of our live bands will always supply DJ/background music when not performing so your wedding party never has to stop! Our bands are very experienced at DJ’ing at weddings and other events and can DJ at any point during your wedding day no matter how early or how late.

 

Can I choose the music the band performs between live sets?

You can choose whatever music you wish between live sets with our bands performing playlists you approve of, playlists you provide, or playlists you create with them. All our bands are happy to take requests, make announcements and DJ authentically or leave playlists to run for a more subtle service. The choice is always yours but you can always leave the music in their expert hands and enjoy your wedding party to the max!

 

How loud are the best wedding bands?

From the best, fully acoustic live wedding bands to massive, 12-piece mega-bands the volume range can vary from 85db to 140db. The typical volume for a standard wedding band is 110db and is equivalent to a large truck passing you by or a baby crying. Our best wedding bands are made up of professional musicians who only perform at volume levels that are enjoyable for all and that are acceptable for your venue.

 

Can wedding bands perform with sound limiters?

Sound-Limiters-At-Wedding-Venues-Infographic

All of our live bands are very experienced with sound limiters of all shapes and sizes in venues of all shapes and sizes. They have the experience and knowledge to work within the limitations of a sound limiter and make sure that you all have the absolute best night possible despite the volume restrictions. Be warned: any venue that has a sound limiter below 85db is not live music friendly and should be avoided if you want live music at your wedding. You learn more from our popular guide on wedding sound limiters here.

 

Do the best wedding bands have PLI and PAT certificates?

So they can perform safely at any venue in the UK all our live wedding bands have up-to-date PLI and PAT certificates.

 

Do your live wedding bands offer covid cover?

Night-And-Day-Wedding-Keybordist

All our live wedding bands offer comprehensive covid cover with any booking. You can find all the details here or contact us for help.

 

Do you offer any support or security when we book a wedding band?

We also have a 24-hour emergency phone line available with any booking and are available 10am-10pm via phone, email, live chat, social channels, and text 7 days a week to help in any way, obligation-free.

 

Will I get the band members I see in the videos?

It is not always the case but in the rare case of a band member becoming ill or having a family (or other) emergency, our live bands have a select group of expert musicians they trust and perform with regularly who can step in and cover. These are full-time, professional musicians and are like-for-like replacements and it means your wedding band doesn’t have to cancel their booking with you and can still deliver a fantastic night’s entertainment for all. Please ask us for more details.

 

What will the band wear?

Our live wedding bands typically wear suits or more smart casual outfits. Our folk bands can also wear Mumford & Sons or folk-inspired outfits too. However, all our bands are happy to cater (where possible) to your wedding theme or ideas and it’s always a great idea to look at each band’s promotional page to see the kind of outfits they typically wear.
