Real questions from clients

Do we need a stage? (asked by Harriet on 31 August 2020)

Response from Kester: No you don't need to hire a stage; we're happy to perform on the floor.

In terms of the two sets you do, do we pick from a list from your repertoire or do you chose that? (asked by Harriet on 31 August 2020)

Response from Kester: You are more than welcome to choose songs from the setlist on the website. If you want to choose songs that aren't on our set list, we can certainly learn them for you but please give as much notice as possible, or at least two months. In 2 hours of live music there will be approximately 34 songs, but feel free to choose as many or as few as you like.

Do you bring lights? (asked by Harriet on 31 August 2020)

Response from Kester: We provide a PA and lights which cover both the dance floor and stage.



The type of music bands for weddings play can depend on the age of your guests, and of course, the type of music you want to hear!

The Score band have performed at literally hundreds of weddings across the UK. One of the reasons we are so popular as a wedding band for hire is the mix of music we play.

Classic soul, rock and pop all feature in our sets, from the 1960s through to the modern day.

The music is all instantly recognisable – we only play hits! The Score band really is live wedding music at its best.


The best wedding music bands have very extensive repertoires and The Score can certainly play requests. If there are specific songs or styles of music you would like to hear, please let us know.


As a professional, hard-working wedding reception band, you can be assured that The Score band use only top of the range equipment. This includes instruments, amplifiers, a sound system and lights – all the equipment a top wedding music band needs to perform.


The Score is a fully self-contained wedding reception band. When you book us you will not need to hire any additional equipment or instruments.


The Score will liaise with you to ensure that we will be ready to perform at the most appropriate time – usually once your guests have finished their meals.


The Score can perform for approximately two hours, and this is usually broken into two sets. The music bands for weddings play should be designed to get your guests up on the dance floor and keep them there – and The Score’s high-energy music will create a great party atmosphere!


Once you have decided on your special song, please let The Score know. If it isn’t already in our repertoire, we can learn it especially!


The Score will liaise with both yourselves and the reception venue well in advance, will arrive in plenty of time and be ready to perform at the required time.


The Score is a live wedding band. Unlike many wedding reception bands who rely just on pre-recorded music and a wedding vocalist, our music features live guitar, bass, drums and vocals.

This means that when you book The Score as your wedding music band, you will hear that great sound that only live wedding bands can provide.


The function room you have hired should hopefully have adequate room for both diners, dancers and your live wedding band. If you have hired a large function room, there should be plenty of space for everyone.

The Score band can set up their equipment in a compact space that will allow you and your guests plenty of space to dance in. We will work with the space available and will set up in a convenient and unobtrusive way.


About 1 hour to set up and soundcheck. All equipment will be checked and the band will be ready to perform within this time.


The Score band are wedding specialists – our musicians will play at an acceptable level and our wedding vocalist won’t sing too loudly.


We can provide a professionally-produced, DJ-style music service at no extra cost.

"Myself and my new wife Becky hired The Score to play at our wedding in July 2021. Ed & the band were absolutely fantastic! Every song we asked for was performed perfectly, and the comments from our wedding guests were all beyond positive. They even played a few impromptu songs to fit the feel of the night, which went down a storm! Kester was great at keeping in touch, which really helped with ensuring everything went to plan on the night. Would highly recommend these guys for any event, they're a brilliant band.
