“We had a great experience with Wonderfolk, they were prompt and professional. Everyone loved the music and the dance floor was full all night! I would happily recommend them to anyone else who was considering booking them.
If you can pass on my thanks we were really happy with how things went and they really made the evening special.”Sarah Hearn - Wedding, Normans Farm, Bilbrough, York
“Only a couple of days have passed since our wedding day but the amount of comments on how amazing Wonderfolk were is amazing. what a friendly and Wilco group of guys! They blended right in to the party as though they were our guests (which we encouraged). They arrived and set up with no hassle at all, and were totally flexible on the night to what we wanted. Musically and vocally they are fantastic. They know how to get a party going and keep people dancing all night.
Honestly words can’t describe how pleased we are with these guys. I would 100% recommend them to anyone, and in fact a friend at the wedding tried to book them there and then for his wedding in June!
If I can help out with any reviews or anything like that then do let me know because these guys were brilliant.
Thank you so much for representing such a top group of guys!”James - Wedding, The Coppermines Mountain Cottages

“Wonderfolk played at our wedding on the 3rd of March, they were beyond fantastic and everyone was up dancing all night. Great playlist of music and they sang our first dance song brilliantly. Cannot recommend this group enough and had we known how awesome they were before, we wouldn’t hesitate to pay double for them!!”Sarah Miller - Wedding, The Inn at Whitewell

“We booked this band extremely last minute, I cannot fault them, we are already looking at booking them for other events. Everyone loved them and we had the best night at our party all due to the band (and well maybe a few drinks). I would recommend booking this band if you would like a night full of fun, laughter and dancing!”Alaina Bull (Caterham Cars) - Corporate Event (Company's 60th Anniversary), Donington Park Circuit
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that? Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests? We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up? 60-90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for? We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception? Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute live lounge-style acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.
Do you have your own PA and lighting? Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on? The published guide price is based on our 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Liverpool. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
Will you perform our first dance? Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require? We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require? 2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
Can we see you play live before booking? As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
