Hiring a Wedding Band in The Algarve – A Short Guide

The Algarve in Portugal is one of the most popular locations for destination weddings, and for good reason.

The world-famous beaches, the rugged countryside and several luxury wedding venues are just some of the factors that make the Algarve such a hotspot for tying the knot.

When it comes to hiring a live wedding band in the Algarve, it can be difficult to find exactly what you want for your special day.

In general, couples who head to Algarve for a destination wedding want a band that plays covers of British and American pop, rock and indie music (as well as some funk and soul thrown in for good measure).

Of course, there is also the option to hire covers bands from further afield to make the journey to Portugal to perform at your wedding.

Several of FixTheMusic’s UK-based wedding bands are proving popular for destination weddings in the region. Of course, travel expenses mean that it can cost roughly double the price of hiring these bands to perform in the UK.
