Where to find wedding bands in Manchester

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.

Things to Think About When Choosing a Wedding Band

Whether you want a lively and dynamic show band, vintage jazz, or a relaxed acoustic set, knowing the type of music you want at your wedding will help you find a band that gives the intensity and atmosphere you want.

Following your decision, consider the following additional factors:

How big is your location? Is the stage area big enough to fit a complete band with all of their gear? Instead of hiring a large 5-piece ensemble for a small wedding, you might wish to choose a duet or trio.

Where are you located? Will the performers have a long journey? Finding a wedding band that is already a Manchester-based can be beneficial.

How much are you looking to spend on your wedding entertainment? We have packages available that can be much more cost-effective if you’re looking for music throughout the entire day.

We hired The Wilde Ones for our wedding who also did the DJ and Sax package afterwards. They were unbelievable! Everyone at the wedding commented on how good the band was and the dance floor was full at all times. Having the sax with the DJ set was the icing on the cake. Thanks so much for your hard work!

Thomas - February 2019

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.

Katie - December 2018

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!

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.
