Find a Band

Finding a live band that plays in your area can be a time consuming and frustrating task. Our service simplifies this. We take bookings for many hundreds of bands across the UK, so we always have live bands that are local to you. Just send us an enquiry and we will quote you a selection of local bands.

Local Bands to your area

What is local to a band depends on the kind of band they are and their view on travel. We will always quote you the bands that are closest to your area that meet your requirements. There is no point in paying for a band to travel rather than perform. Often this means that they are within a few miles of you. However, if you want specific bands or they are more specialised, or if you have left your booking late so that a lot of bands are booked, we will quote you live bands from further afield.

Christmas party bands

It’s ever too early to book your band for a Christmas party. On these pages we show two of the most popular forms of Christmas party band, ceilidh bands, jazz bands and barn dance bands. Our bands play for any kind of Christmas event, be it a company corporate event, a charity fundraiser, or your own private party.

Why are these kind of bands so good for Christmas events?  It’s because they're all forms of music that are not too loud so people can still talk to each other and are sociable.  with a jazz band people can sit at tables enjoy the music, talk to each other, and even get up and to dance when they feel like it. With a Ceilidh Band it is an interactive event, where guest mingle by virtue of the dancing, and music is at a volume where those who aren't dancing can still talk to each other easily. Pop bands are also great fun, and will suit many people, but they tend not to I'll have too much talking, just doing.

Our bands get booked up well before Christmas, so if you want a good selection of bands, book early, just as you would  if booking your Christmas meal.
