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).
