Need a little help hiring French Riviera 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 does it cost for a UK wedding band to perform in the French Riviera?

For professional UK bands hired to perform in the French Riviera, we recommend a base-level starting price of around £2500 for a 4-piece band. 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 to entertain at the most exclusive events. On top of the act's hire fee, you will need to cover the cost of flights, transfers, accommodation, food/soft drinks and all equipment hire. We can provide you with detailed tech specs to pass on to your local wedding planner and/or AV supplier to gain quotes for the equipment hire. Keep in mind that this is a starting price, and some bands (especially with large line-ups) are going to cost more than this.

When you find a band you love, the best thing to do is call our office team on +44 (0) 800 564 2240, and they can help to guide you as to the overall cost of the booking.

What extra charges can I expect on top of the standard booking price when booking a UK wedding band to perform in the French Riviera?

Our team will quote you a fee to cover the artist's time and performance in the French Riviera. On top of that you will be responsible for covering the cost of flights, transfers, accommodation, food and soft drinks, all equipment hire, as well as any visa costs. We will be able to supply you with a full tech spec that will allow you or your wedding planner to get local AV suppliers to quote for the equipment required.

What does the French Riviera wedding band fee include?

As standard, a Tailored Entertainment French Riviera wedding band booking includes...

  • 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets.
  • A special request performed.
  • A pre-mixed DJ service for before and after live sets.

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 wedding day!

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.

Do UK bands performing in the French Riviera bring all their own equipment?

Typically, the band will bring ‘breakables’ like guitars and cymbals, and all other equipment will need to be sourced from a hire company local to your French Riviera venue. We are able to provide you with a detailed tech spec that will make it easy for you or your wedding planner to get quotes from local suppliers.

How early should I book my French Riviera wedding band?

The timing has to be right for you, but we’d recommend booking your French Riviera wedding band as early as possible. We represent some of the most in-demand wedding bands in the UK, and peak summer dates will often book up around a year in advance - sometimes longer. For international bookings there are additional considerations – to allow for travel time an overseas wedding booking usually requires two days of availability from your wedding band. With this in mind, you’d need to secure your favoured band as soon as possible to make sure you definitely get them at your wedding. Ideally, we’d suggest booking as soon as you have your venue sorted.

Can the band perform during the drinks reception at my French Riviera wedding?

Absolutely! Many of our clients planning weddings in the French Riviera book ‘optional extras’ to the band’s standard booking to get the most out of their wedding entertainment. Our wedding bands offer things like live lounge acoustic sets, roaming band add-ons, and ‘Band as DJ’ options where the band members MC your party all night. You’ll find any additional booking options listed under ‘optional extras’ on our bands’ profiles.

Can someone help me pick the right band for my French Riviera wedding?

If you’re struggling to find the right live wedding entertainment for your wedding in the French Riviera, 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, location and budget.

What different styles of band can I book for my wedding in the French Riviera?

Our French Riviera 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 dancefloor. 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, its 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!
