2018’s 5 Hottest Wedding Band Trends

Friday 3rd November 2017

Happy November wedding planners!

As you’re starting to feel the nights draw in and the temperature drop, many of you are almost certainly going to have one eye on 2018 wedding plans. If you think about it long enough, you can almost taste the gin and tonics in the sunshine, right?

Well we here at Tailored Entertainment, suppliers of the most popular wedding bands in the UK, we thought we’d help you get ahead of the curve a little. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at five of next year’s hottest wedding band trends. These are the sounds that are going to be filling the receptions of the coolest weddings in the country next summer, so get in there quick and get these guys booked!

DJ & Saxophone/Drums Combo

This is a really hip way of bringing a little live music flavour to your wedding, without totally breaking the bank! Take for example, DJ Ellis; one of our coolest options for live wedding entertainment in Sussex. Her live show is truly unique, she weaves together your perfect playlist from behind her turntables, and then accompanies herself live on saxophone! You can also add a percussion player to bring the tunes to life even more.

Roaming Bands

Roaming bands started seeing an upswing in popularity this year, but next year they’re set to take off into the stratosphere. Check out our most popular roaming band, and one of the most exciting London wedding bands out there; The Wanderland Band. They make the stage a thing of the past, getting stuck straight in to the party and inviting all your guests to join in. It’s an incredibly immersive way to experience a live band – and these guys are blooming in popularity. They’ve played venues this summer including Wembley Stadium and The Singapore Formula One Grand Prix.

Hipster Swing

Here’s one we’re really, really excited about. Hipster Swing is about to take ahold of the UK wedding scene, and it’s an awesome concept. Cool as hell musicians playing old school jazz and swing and blues with a whole heap of style and dripping with authenticity. Wedding bands for hire have got to be the coolest wedding band London Bootleg Boogie Band has to offer. Their unmistakeable sound will have all your guests rushing to the dance floor – we assure you, you’ve never seen anything quite like this.

90’s Retro Acts

Here’s another fun one. Vintage bands have been a big thing for a while now, but 90’s Retro acts take a step right into the recent past for a night dedicated to all things pre-2000. Try Sega & The Boombox on for size – the hippest London wedding band out there. If the Spice Girls were the soundtrack to your childhood, and you knew every word to the Fresh Prince of Bel Air, these guys will be perfect for you.

Festival Wedding Bands

Festival bands have been a big deal for some time now, but their popularity shows no sign of slowing. Festival Nights are one the country’s best festival bands, and one of our most popular wedding bands in London. They’re just coming to the end of another jam-packed wedding season, playing shows all across the continent. Get in and get them booked before all the dates disappear!

So there you go. Five new on trend bands for you to choose from. If this, or any of our UK wedding bands pique your interest, give us a call on 0800 564 2240, to chat to our expert team. We can’t wait to hear from you!
