Need a little help hiring Chester wedding bands?

If you’re not quite sure where to start with finding the perfect live wedding entertainment for your big day, then we’re here to help. Here’s answers to some of our most frequently asked questions...

How much should I pay for my Chester wedding band?

For professional bands for weddings in Chester, we recommend a base-level starting price of around £1000. At this price, you’re ensuring that your wedding band is made up of the UK’s very best professional musicians with the requisite skill set, equipment, and production to perform at any wedding venue in the country. Keep in mind that this is a starting price, and lots of bands you’ll like are going to cost more than this.

For loads more information on how much bands cost and what you get for your money, check out our in-depth Tailored Guide on how much you should pay for your wedding band.

What does the Chester wedding band fee include?

As standard, a Tailored Entertainment booking includes...

  • Two hours of live music split into sets to suit you.
  • Professional sound and lighting production.
  • A pre-mixed DJ playlist for before and after live sets (so your whole evening of entertainment is covered).
  • PAT Testing and PLI Insurance (required by all UK venues).

You also get our 5-star Tailored Entertainment customer service. From your first enquiry right through to the big day itself, you'll have a dedicated booking agent on hand to answer any questions or arrange any last-minute changes. This kind of peace of mind can make all the difference in the lead-up to your big event!

Lots of our bands also offer 'optional extras' for an additional fee. These include services such as afternoon drinks reception add-ons, roaming acoustic sets, 'band as DJ' sets, early load-in and late finishes. You’ll find all these options listed in the band's profile.

I love a band that isn't local to my wedding venue, will they travel to Chester?

Yes! Our bands regularly travel to perform at weddings right across the UK and abroad. If your Chester wedding is taking place outside of their local area travel costs will be added and if your venue is around two hours or more in travel time, an additional fee to cover Travelodge-style accommodation will also be accounted for in your quote.

How do I book a Chester wedding band?

First off, take a look through our Chester wedding band roster and shortlist any bands that you are keen on. Once you've made your shortlist you can submit that to us – you’ll be asked to provide your contact details, and then one of our booking team will get in touch with you to chat through options and how to progress. If you’d prefer, you can just give us a call on 0800 564 2240 to get the ball rolling with finding your perfect wedding band!

Can I pick the songs my Chester wedding band performs?

On every wedding band’s profile, you’ll find their specific repertoire of wedding band music. We suggest that you take their repertoire into consideration when booking your wedding band, and make sure that you like plenty of the songs on their list (the repertoire for party bands will be refined around packing a dance floor - it's good to have that in mind when reviewing repertoire). When you book your act, we’ll ask you to go through this list and highlight your favourites, so the band can keep those in mind when putting the sets together for your big night. You can also use this time to identify any songs you wouldn’t like to hear, too.

All our wedding bands also offer to learn one special request (a song not listed on their repertoire) as standard with your booking. Lots of people use this for their first dance, but you can also just choose a song you love to go into the evening sets!

Can someone help me pick the right Chester wedding band?

If you’re struggling to find the right live wedding entertainment in Chester, we’d be more than happy to help! It’s helpful to think about the kind of music you like to listen to, or the kind of music that gets you and your friends and family dancing at a party, and choose an act that fits with that style. If you’re still not sure, give our expert team a call and we can suggest a few acts you might like based on your preferences and budget.

What different styles of wedding band can I book in Chester?

Our Chester wedding bands cover all the most popular styles in contemporary wedding entertainment. We have festival-style wedding bands for rustic barn and tipi weddings, soul & Motown showbands for big, glitzy events, Gatsby-style bands for vintage weddings and indie-rock wedding bands that guarantee a packed dance floor. For those looking for something a bit different from their wedding band, we’ve got incredible dance anthem bands, retro 90s college rock acts, brilliant RnB bands and much more besides!

If you don’t know where to start, it's useful to think about the kind of music you love and find a band that fits. You can use our search function to fine-tune your choices a bit!

Can my Chester wedding band perform at the afternoon drinks reception too?

Absolutely! Many of our Chester wedding bands offer afternoon drinks reception add-ons to their standard booking. You’ll find these listed under ‘optional extras’ on the band’s profile.

Alternatively, you could book one of our dedicated drinks reception entertainment options like a stunning soloist or string quartet.

How early should I book my Chester wedding band?

The timing has to be right for you, but we’d recommend booking your Chester wedding band as early as possible. We represent some of the most in-demand wedding bands in the country, and peak summer dates will often book up around a year in advance - sometimes longer. To ensure you get the band you really want, we’d suggest booking as soon as you have your venue confirmed and have found the band for you.

My wedding venue has a noise limiter. Can I still book one of your Chester wedding bands?

The short answer is yes, you absolutely can book a great Chester wedding band if your venue has a noise limiter. Most of our professional wedding bands are able to perform within the restrictions of a sound limiter and your experience will be the same as at a venue without one. We have a few bands - mainly the club anthems style, whose music may not be suitable depending on the individual venue restrictions. Please contact us to chat further if your venue has a sound limiter as we'll likely have experience of working at your chosen venue. You can read all about what sound limiters are and how they might affect your wedding entertainment in our Tailored Guide on wedding venues with sound limiters.

Where can I hire a Chester wedding band?

Chester wedding bands can be hired from a professional live music agency, such as Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment exclusively represents a host of the best Chester wedding bands and on this website you'll find videos, photos, repertoire and links to band websites so you can find all the information you need to hire the perfect live music for you. When hiring a Chester wedding band with Tailored Entertainment your booking will be secured by a booking contract between you and the act. Standard payment terms are a deposit to secure the booking (usually around 20% of the total fee) with the balance payable 7 days in advance of the event.
