2. Dae La Roux

This talented group of wedding musicians are once again, all graduates of Leeds Conservatoire. Based in Alwoodley, the band have dominated the Leeds Music Scene with their fresh funk and soul sound. Having met at a jam night at Northern Guitar Cafe Bar on Call Lane they all had an instant connection as musicians. From there they have grown to become one of the most sought after bands on the Leeds and Yorkshire wedding scene. 

They fill the set full of guilty pleasures, Motown hits and pop classics. The frontman Connor fills the room with energy and has one of the most soulful sounding voices in the wedding entertainment industry. Check out one of their recent covers recorded at The Nave Studios in Pudsey just outside Leeds City Centre. 

If you would like to see this band live, we regularly do Wedding Music Showcase evenings in Leeds city centre. The nights are the perfect opportunity to see a range of wedding bands live. Follow us on Instagram to find out more.

Having been on the Leeds wedding scene for over 12 years, The Marc & Abi Band is one of Yorkshire’s most popular bands. Based in Alwoodley, the band have played at loads of Yorkshire festivals, including Pride and Leeds Food Festival. Their very first gig together was at The Botanist in Leeds City centre. From there, they formed a wedding band and were an instant hit.

They work with some of Leed’s best wedding musicians. The band ranges from a four-piece to an eight-piece band and offers packages to cover the whole day. You will unlikely find a wedding band with more energy, experience and enthusiasm.

Their favourite Leeds wedding venue is Wharfedale Grange near Harewood House. They work there most weekends, and the eight-piece show band works perfectly in their 300-capacity main room.

Where to find wedding bands in Leeds

You’ve got your date set and you’ve found a beautiful venue. Perhaps you’ve even sent out your invitations. Now it’s time to think about your wedding entertainment. You know you want a live band, but where do you find them?

You could:

  • Browse social media
  • Ask friends for recommendations
  • Explore local music venues
  • Use a wedding directory

You might also want to get in touch with an entertainment or live music agency — they can put you in touch with a range of acts covering all kinds of genres and styles.

Areas to consider when looking for a wedding band

Knowing the style of music you’d like at your wedding can help you pin down a band that offers the energy and vibe you’re looking for — whether that’s vintage jazz or a chilled acoustic set.

Once you’ve decided on that, here are some other aspects to think about:

  • How large is your venue? Is the stage area large enough to accommodate a full band and all their equipment? If you’re having a small wedding, you might want to opt for a duo or trio, rather than a large 5-piece ensemble.
  • Where is your venue? Will the artists need to travel far? It can be helpful to find a wedding band already local to Leeds.
  • What’s your budget? Wedding band hire prices can vary greatly. If possible, try to find out early on how much groups charge.

We hired The Wilde Ones using Jonny Ross agency for our companies Christmas party. The whole process was so simple from start to finish. The band arrived early and got the party started with a great collection of songs to suit all ages. I highly recommend Jonny Ross Music to everyone. I will book again for next year.

Rolling Keys Duo - A quick note to thank you very much for being a huge hit at my 40th on Saturday. Everyone loved you guys – perfect cool background at the beginning and then perfect 'get them all up dancing with arms in the air by the end!' You were super easy to book, required little help on the night (luckily – as I’d had a good few Cosmo’s….) and were universally loved! thank you again. James

James - November 2018

Jonny ross music provided the music for our wedding day and we were nothing but thrilled with the professional and enetertaining experience we had. Not only were they thorough and knowledgable throughout the whole process, the wedding evening would not have been the same without their fantastic band and DJ package. Thank you Jonny and Ellie for such a wonderful wedding! Would recommend them for any event!

Ian - September 2018

We booked the Wild ones with Sax and DJ package for our wedding on 24th August and we can’t thank them enough. They were absolutely amazing. Connor absolutely smashed the vocals and what a front man he is and the saxophonist I mean wow! They are all so talented and professional from beginning to end we didn’t want them to leave! We will be recommending them to everyone that’s for sure. Our friends and family are still talking about ‘our band!’ They were so good.

All our guests loved them and didn’t want them to leave when the set was finished!!!! They really got the party going and for that I cannot thank them enough! I can’t wait to hear them again which I’m sure I will as many of our guests are planning on booking them for their own events!!!! Please please please don’t hesitate using Jonny Ross music.
