We're regularly booked to perform for weddings and events at Sofitel Cairo Nile El Gezirah Hotel in Egypt, Borgo Sant'Ambrogio in Italy, Sky Garden in London and La Baronía in Barcelona, Spain.

View ROAMEO

ROAMEO are one of the UK's only electric / amplified roaming wedding bands. This is made possible by the unique addition of a musically involved sound engineer, who works wizardry with wireless technology. Wow.

ROAMEO's band members are all seasoned entertainers from established backgrounds - sharp presentation and honed audience-sensitive charm set this outfit well apart from the rest. Their set is full of cool hits, often put together in a clever mashup.

Previous clients include Facebook, Google, Manchester United Football Club, Ted Baker, Coca Cola and Hampton Court Palace, amongst many other prestigious organisations and venues.

What our couples say...

"We had a fantastic time with ROAMEO at the wedding. They were a really friendly bunch and got everyone suitably hyped, which was just what we were looking for! The song list seemed perfect for our guests and there were plenty of singalongs. The roaming aspect worked brilliantly at the venue which could have been slightly cramped with a full band. It made it very interactive. We had lots of positive feedback and their performance has been one of the key talking points of the wedding since! We would definitely recommend them if asked."
— Ed Farrer, wedding at Brunswick House, London, UK

The band is highly experienced at performing outside the UK. They have recently travelled to and have upcoming events in Malta, France, Italy, Spain, Egypt, Greece and Portugal. The band also recently performed at the Singapore Grand Prix.

Their performance at a destination wedding in Barcelona was recently featured as a real wedding in Whimsical Wonderland Weddings.

Led by a singer or singer/guitarist and supported by the drummer who has all the other instruments stored in his live drum machine, triggered on the fly. All the sound, sass, mobility and interaction of the full complement - just smaller. Sax or an extra singer can be added.

We are forever gauging dance floors around the world and keeping an ear to the ground for the freshest party tunes. The sample set list provided here shows examples of places we like to go.

Please note that ROAMEO operates as a family of no-compromise musicians, who are the best in London for this show and at the very top of their game. This means that the band may not have all members from promotional footage. The set list is indicative only and will vary according to the singer.

4. The Nauticals
Average booking price: £3,000 - £5,000 (as of April 2024)
Location: London

The Nauticals are a 4 piece rock and pop covers band consisting of both male and female lead vocals.

Their female singer also plays saxophone which means she can steal the show by ripping into some of the most famous sax solos of all time without the need of backing tracks.

We love playing anything that makes sure the dancefloor is kept busy all night. Whether it’s Elvis or Ed Sheeran, we’ve got it covered.

Our standard service includes 2 x 60 minutes (or 3 x 40 minutes) of live music up until midnight (which can be extended).

We also include free DJ music in between and after our sets so there’s no need to hire a DJ.

What our couples say...

"We booked The Nauticals for our wedding, which after three covid related delays, went ahead this July and they were fantastic. They did an upbeat acoustic set for us and really made the night. Despite not being allowed dancing (again covid!), They had people dancing in their chairs and the sax addition was amazing. We had so many comments from guests loving the band and I would fully recommend for either acoustic or full band if you can. The FixTheMusic team was helpful and responsive throughout and dealt with all the date changes with ease."
— Emily Clarke, wedding at Hawksmoor Guildhall, Basinghall Street, London

"I can’t even begin to explain how grateful we are! You made the night! So amazing. Thank you SO much for learning our first dance. It sounded better than the original and Robyn’s vocals were out of this world! Haven’t stopped talking about you!"
— Layla & Steve Morgan, wedding at Crypt on the Green, Clerkenwell Close, London

We are fully equipped with our own top spec PA & lighting rig - all we need is a couple of plug sockets and we’re good to go!

As one of the UK's most loved wedding bands with male and female vocals (and sax too!), what sets us apart from most other 4 piece bands is our ability to adapt our instrumental lineup without adding additional band members.

They faithfully recreate the spirit of the 90s. Get your glow sticks ready!

What our couples say...

"Hi Thom, I would like to say thank you very much for playing for us at our wedding, and for bearing with us so much re soundcheck, break, etc. Charlotte and I have to say how brilliant you all were. Every person we spoke to thought that you were absolutely amazing, and everyone had a fabulous time dancing and watching/listening! There were a couple of amateur band members at the party (my best man Mark is a guitarist with one band up in Chester, Gary is a drummer in another band here in London) and they readily admit that they and their bands do not come not even close to your quality. I would love to get the playlist, or recording of what the band played/sang - that rapping right from the start was a-w-e-s-o-m-e, incredible, on another level! I'm guessing this might not be possible as it's a live act and you do not want others to steal/share, so if not possible, I understand. Happy to pay, but of course, not to worry if not possible. I hope your band goes on to bigger things, I cannot believe how fantastic they are. We will definitely recommend you all to EVERYONE! Thanks again, Martin."
— Martin Carey, wedding at Drapers' Hall, London

"We were really happy with you guys on the night, it was exactly what we needed to refocus people after we had some issues with the caterer. Everyone commented on the band, it was one of the highlights of the day for our guests. Thanks for being flexible with the last minute playing arrangements also, we would certainly recommend you to friends."

We hope you've enjoyed reading this list of the best wedding bands London has to offer in 2024.

FixTheMusic provides bands for thousands of weddings and private events each year. We've put together some FAQs about hiring a wedding band, a few of which are listed below:

How much does a wedding band cost in London?

Wedding bands in London tend to be more expensive than other parts of the country. There are many reasons for this, including the higher cost of living in the capital, together with the extremely high quality of musicians that gather in London from all over the world. London is a global city inhabited by some of the world's best musical talent. With this in mind, the average price for a wedding band in London in 2024 is £2,850. Some bands will be a lot more expensive than this (e.g. an 11-piece band will cost much more than a 5-piece wedding band), and some younger and smaller bands will be cheaper.

How early should I book the band?

You should aim to book your band as soon as possible. Most of our best wedding bands have bookings at least two years in advance. If your wedding is on a Saturday in May, June, July, August or September, you should really be looking to book at least a year in advance of your date. This is because most weddings fall on a Saturday during summer so our bands receive the most enquiries for these days. That said, there are more and more weddings taking place on Sundays and mid-week (especially on Thursdays and Fridays) so it’s best not to wait too long before locking down your band.

Can I see the band perform live before I book?

Usually it’s not possible to see the band live. Most professional bands perform at private events only, such as weddings and corporate events. It’s not usually possible for the bands to allow potential clients into these venues to watch them perform. It is occasionally possible so there’s no harm in asking. And sometimes wedding bands will do the odd gig at a pub or festival that’s open to the public.

How long do London wedding bands perform for?

Most wedding bands play 2 x 45 minute or 2 x 1 hour live sets at weddings. If you'd like your wedding band to perform for longer, just ask the band. It's usually possible but they might charge a bit extra.

What happens between and after the band’s live sets?

Most wedding bands provide a “laptop DJ” service. This isn’t the same as providing the service of a professional DJ who reads the room and adapts to the feel on the night. Instead, they will have a playlist (usually on something like Spotify or iTunes) that they play out of their PA system.

Can I choose the music they play in between and after their live sets?

Yes, usually you can send the band a list of requests before the wedding and the band will download them onto their laptop or device, ready to play on the night. Alternatively, you can compile a playlist and bring your own device to plug into the band’s PA system.

What songs do wedding bands play?

Most bands have a repertoire of songs that they perform regularly at weddings. This will be a tried-and-tested playlist that they know works well at weddings: it appeals to guests of all ages and keeps people on the dance floor.

Will the band learn my first dance song?

Most bands will be delighted to learn your first dance song and perform it live for you on your wedding night. If it doesn’t fit the band’s style (e.g. if your first dance song is a jazz song, but you’ve booked an indie-rock band), then they might suggest you use the recorded version of the song and the band will play this out of their PA system. Some bands might charge a bit extra (often around £150) to learn a new song to cover rehearsal time.

Can I give a list of songs to the band to play at my wedding?

Most bands will usually learn one song for your wedding that isn’t already in their setlist. Some bands will offer to learn 2 or 3 new songs, but in our experience they are rarely able to learn more than this. It can be very time consuming for the band to learn and rehearse new songs, and especially so for singers to learn all the new lyrics.

Can I indicate my song preferences to the band?

Most bands will be happy for you to indicate which songs from their set list you dislike and don’t want them to play, and songs that you like and absolutely want them to play on the night. The band will usually then build their setlist around these preferences.

What time do wedding bands normally arrive at the venue?

Most bands aim to arrive at around 5pm to be ready to play by 7pm. During this time they will set up their equipment and carry out a sound check, essential to making sure the volume of the band is appropriate to your venue and that any sound / noise limiters are taken into account.

Can the band turn up earlier than that?

Yes, most bands will be happy to turn up earlier than 5pm, but you should expect to pay them for the extra time. A lot of wedding couples worry about the band setting up while guests are at the venue. Bands with lots of experience of weddings should be able to set up discreetly and without making too much noise and mess. The noisiest part is when they have to carry out the sound check, but this should only last about 15 - 30 minutes. Rather than asking the entire band to turn up early, it’s often more cost-effective for one or two band members to arrive in advance to unload most of the equipment and get set up, which saves having to pay an extra fee for every band member.

What time do wedding bands normally finish?

Most bands expect to finish by midnight. This suits most weddings as the majority of UK venues require live music to stop by this time.

Can I ask the band to stay later than midnight?

Yes, but bands will normally charge a slightly higher fee to finish later than midnight.

Can I use the band’s PA system after midnight?

Usually, yes. Though this will also attract a slightly higher fee, as it means that at least one band member has to wait until the end of the party to pack up the PA system and head home. Some band members might be a couple of hours’ drive away from your venue, so finishing at 1am means they won’t arrive home until 3am or 4am.

Do wedding bands bring their own sound equipment and instruments?

Yes. Professional wedding bands will bring their own equipment. This includes a PA system, mixing desk, some basic lighting for the dance floor and their own instruments. If you are planning a particularly large wedding with hundreds of guests, you might consider hiring in a larger PA system and more lighting.

Do wedding bands need a stage to perform on?

No. Most bands are happy to perform without a stage, though it can look special if you can offer them a stage to perform on.

If I do provide a stage for my wedding band, how much space will the band need?

This will depend on the size of the band of course, but to give you a rough idea, a 4-piece band would usually need at least 5m x 4m. This is to provide room for not only the band members themselves, but also their instruments (keyboards and drum kits take up quite a bit of space) and other things like speakers and a mixing desk.

Can I or my guests play with the band?

If you ask the band in advance, most will be happy to allow you or one of your guests to sing or play along with them for one or two songs. We always advise checking this with your band first. Some bands’ public liability insurance doesn’t allow wedding bands to permit guests to use their instruments or equipment.

Do I need to hire a DJ as well as a wedding band?

Most bands will provide pre-recorded playlists between and after their live sets, so your entire evening will be covered. However, if you want a professional DJ who will adapt his music choices on the night and interact with guests, then it’s better to hire a DJ as well.

If I do hire a separate DJ, can the band and DJ share equipment?

Bands and DJs will often share the same PA system, as it can look cluttered to have two sets of speakers around the dance floor. However, you’ll need to discuss this with both the DJ and band before the event to check the equipment suits everyone’s requirements and that everyone is happy to share. One problem can arise when the DJ is booked to provide music into the small hours, but the band is to finish at 11pm. In this case, it would make more sense for the band to use the DJ’s equipment to save the band having to wait until the DJ had finished his set.

Do I need to provide anything for my wedding band?

Professional wedding bands will bring all their own technical equipment and instruments. However, most will expect to be provided with a hot meal each and soft drinks.The musicians will probably have left their homes around lunchtime to arrive at your venue in good time to set up and soundcheck. It can be a long day for them and they will be much more energetic on stage if they’ve had a good meal and refreshments before performing for you. The bands won’t expect to be given the same meal as you provide for your guests. Most wedding venues have an option you can purchase in advance for your suppliers or you can give the musicians access to your buffet if you’re having one.

Will the band members be the same as the ones I’ve seen in their videos?

Not always. Most professional bands will have a core group that plays at the majority of weddings they are booked for. However, they will also have a group of deputies (or “deps” as they are known in the industry) that they call upon frequently to cover for band members. This is a standard and essential practice in the music industry. Most musicians work as freelancers, meaning they might work for different function bands or tour with famous pop groups for example. Being able to draw upon a deputy musician to cover a band member who is unavailable (or ill) means the rest of the band can still work.

What do wedding bands wear?

You should get a good idea of what the band wears from their videos online. Most will opt for a smart shirt, but if you have a particular theme or any requests, let them know well in advance. For example, if you’re having an 80s style wedding, you might want to check if the band could wear appropriate clothing to match!

Will the band need parking spaces?

Most bands will arrive by car as it’s the easiest way for them to bring their equipment and instruments. Having 1 or 2 parking spaces available for them to use that are close to the venue will be appreciated by the musicians. In certain cities such as London, you might also need to cover the costs of parking. London also presents some unique issues for wedding bands. For example, all of our bands will need clear access to the wedding venue to unload their equipment. This can often be tricky at central London venues, where on-street parking is prohibited or very limited. It's worth checking with your venue if they have any unloading bays nearby or if the band can park at the venue temporarily to take out their instruments and sound system.

My venue has a sound limiter. Is that a problem?

Some wedding venues have what’s known as a sound or noise limiter installed. This is particularly the case with venues in built-up areas in cities or towns or where the owners have to be careful not to damage the building (e.g. a National Trust or English Heritage property). Most professional wedding bands are experienced at adapting their performance to the sound limit in place. You should make your band aware of this in good time before your event, as it might mean they need to bring an electric drum kit. Some bands might even refuse to play at venues with sound limiters in place. You can read more on our guide to sound limiters at wedding venues.

My wedding venue says the band needs to hold Public Liability Insurance (PLI). What is PLI?

Most wedding venues in the UK require bands performing there to hold valid Public Liability Insurance (PLI). PLI provides protection from the financial consequences of legal action and compensation claims if anyone is injured or any property is damaged during the wedding. Your wedding venue will often ask the band to provide a certificate to show they hold up-to-date public liability insurance in advance of the wedding. Membership of organisations such as the Musicians Union usually comes with PLI included. Read more on our guide to PLI.

Do wedding bands need PAT-certified equipment?

PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most wedding venues will require your band to produce evidence that their equipment has been PAT-certified. This means that it has been tested to ensure it is safe to use. If your band can’t produce valid PLI and PAT certificates, you might question whether they are a professional band, as all full-time bands will have these documents ready to send to venues. Read more on our guide to Portable Appliance Testing (PAT).

Can wedding bands play outside?

If you’re getting married in the UK, it’s a good idea to make the most of the summer months and have as much of your wedding outside if possible. That said, the British weather isn’t the most reliable – so whilst many bands will be happy to play outside in principle, they will always require access to a shelter from the elements, whether that’s strong sunlight or rain. Musicians’ instruments can be worth thousands of pounds and a small amount of water damage can have a devastating impact on the instrument.

Do I need a contract with my wedding band?

The most secure way to book a band is to do so via FixTheMusic. All bookings are governed by the agreement on our website, which is based on the UK Musicians Union standard contract and amended by the particular details that you agree with your band by email (date, venue etc.). The contract provides protection to both parties.

Do wedding bands play during dinner?

If you have your heart set on the wedding band playing during dinner (often called the wedding breakfast), then by all means ask them if they can. You could opt for your wedding band to provide some lighter, instrumental background music (for example an acoustic or jazz set) during the dinner, though they will charge extra for this. Another popular option during the wedding meal is an acoustic roaming set, with the band weaving between your guests, providing something unique and a real talking point!
