Some FAQs About Hiring an R&B Band for Your Wedding or Party...

What does an R&B wedding band perform?

The R&B wedding bands on FixTheMusic play a variety of music in this style featuring a range of artists including Kanye West, Bruno Mars, R Kelly, Justin Timberlake and Ceelo Green. Most R&B cover and tribute bands will also include in their set list songs from other styles of music as well as R n B, including hip hop, UK garage, reggae, pop, rock, soul and Motown. You might also be looking for an urban wedding band – perfect for cool city weddings.

Can you also provide UK garage wedding bands?

The UK is home to many wedding bands that specialise in UK garage music. The Young Bucks, for example, have an incredible garage medley that features Do You Really Like It? (British garage music group DJ Pied Piper and the Masters of Ceremonies), Re-Rewind (The Crowd Say Bo Selecta) by Artful Dodger, featuring Craig David on vocals, Movin' Too Fast, Gotta Get Thru This, 21 Seconds (So Solid Crew) – all combined with their trademark rapping and reggae fusion. So if you're looking for a UK garage wedding band, get in touch!

How much does an R&B / hip hop wedding band cost to hire?

The average price of an R&B wedding band for hire on FixTheMusic is £1,685. R&B bands tend to cost more than the average UK wedding band as they often feature more instruments and vocalists than a regular pop covers band so that they can cover the full range of R&B and soul hits.

Should I hire an R&B band for my wedding?

Yes! We've noticed a big trend in recent years for discerning clients to choose an R&B wedding band for their big day. The UK's best R&B bands are made up of some of the most in-demand session musicians and singers in the country, who have often toured with celebrity singers across Europe and the rest of the world. Booking an R&B band or hip hop band for your own wedding is guaranteed to ensure a cool edge that most other bands can't provide. At FixTheMusic we have some of the UK's best hip hop bands for hire, as well as specialist RnB groups.

Why have RnB wedding bands become so popular in recent years?

Couples these days are looking for something a bit different to the tried-and-tested wedding covers band of recent years. Couples getting married in their early 30s were children of the 90s, so they want music that reflects their personal music tastes, be that 90s kitsch pop such as Britney Spears and various boy bands, to Britpop, Garage, Hip Hop and American heavy metal such as Greenday, Metallica and Guns N' Roses, as well as RnB covers.

How long do the R&B bands perform for?

As is standard for wedding or corporate entertainment, most live RnB bands will provide around 2 hours of live music. This is often split into 2 x 60 minute sets, or 3 x 40 minute sets. The bands will provide background music (a "laptop DJ service") in between the live music. Most bands arrive at the venue at around 5pm and expect to finish by 12 midnight.

Is it possible to see the RnB bands perform live before I book?

It's often not possible to see the RnB bands perform live before you book them for your wedding or event. Most professional wedding bands rarely perform at public gigs, as most of their bookings are at private events such as weddings and corporate events. It is possible from time to time though, so feel free to ask your band and they'll let you know if they have any public gigs coming up.

Will an RnB band be suitable for my wedding?

RnB bands bring a unique flavour to wedding receptions. Their size usually means they provide a visual spectacle to the evening's entertainment. And the range of songs covered by such bands (from soul to pop, funk and maybe even some rock), means there is usually something for each of your wedding guests. Of course, couples will want guests of all ages to enjoy the wedding music, so bands that specialise in 90s genres (90s wedding bands) generally also perform some classic covers from the 50s to the 80s. Some of our RnB / hip hop wedding bands also feature rappers or singers who can rap – the perfect addition to a live band.

Where do your R&B wedding bands perform in the UK?

Our R&B wedding bands perform throughout the UK and internationally. FixTheMusic specialises in providing bands and singers for destination weddings across Europe, especially in France, Spain and Italy. Closer to home, although the majority of our R&B bands are based in London, they are also available across the UK – including in Manchester, Liverpool, Leeds, Birmingham, Bristol, Cornwall, Devon, Brighton, Sheffield, York, Wales and Scotland.

Some Selected Reviews of Our R&B Wedding Bands for Hire in the UK...

Review of Mashup Kings (professional 5-8 piece R&B cover band based in Bristol) by Isabelle Andresen

"Mashup Kings played at our wedding and they were absolutely INCREDIBLE! To give you a sense of our wedding, we’re in our early 30s .. we had tipis in a campsite.. and loads of people there were really into music. We therefore spent ages looking for a band which would get all generations on the dance floor, who wouldn’t be cheesy and who would play a variety of styles of music. And we definitely made the right choice. Everyone danced all night long and had the best time ever! What we loved most about them (which made them unique) is their incredible mash ups… from a garage mash up to Stevie Wonder to pop and rock… just such a mix of amazing tunes and having them as mash ups means you get to hear about 3 times as many amazing tunes as normal! The band were all so lovely and super high energy. Benji was also extremely helpful in the run up and set up, as we borrowed some of his gear for the music after the band and during a song my husband did during the speeches. Thank you so much for everything Benji and the rest of the Mashup Kings crew!"


Review of Big Soul Beats (R&B, soul, garage & hop hop wedding band based in London, UK) by Lydia Furse

"Big Soul Beats were an incredible band for our wedding in Sussex on 2nd September 2023. The band arrived on time, had great communication beforehand, and had really thought about their playlist to suit our tastes. It was amazing how responsive they were to the audience, the lead guitarist was great at chatting to everyone dancing and they adapted songs based on kids being around which was so sweet of them. The way they remixed songs together was incredible, I wish we could buy an album of their sets from our wedding it was so perfect. The vocals were amazing and the sound quality was really great. The dance floor was full all night and loads of friends and family asked for their details, including one of the brides’ mums - I don’t know when she might be throwing a party but if so she’ll definitely be booking Big Soul Beats! They played our first dance live and it’s a moment I’ll never forget, so amazing. Thank you Big Soul Beats! Seriously book this band for your wedding or party - they were awesome!"


Review of Luna Showband (wedding & party band based in London, UK) by John Benjamin

"Luna Showband played at our wedding party and did an amazing job helping to make it a night to remember. They got everyone on to the dance floor with a great selection of classic and modern songs with something in there for everyone. They are all incredible musicians and great personalities on stage. Everybody was buzzing; a great band. Thank you so much!"


Review of Urban Dynamite (RnB & soul wedding band based in London) by Rhia Daniels

"Thank you so much for all you did in helping to organise Urban Dynamite for our wedding. They were everything we had hoped they would be and more! The set list was perfection - the most amazing mix of classics and modern stuff. I've been singing September on repeat since and I honestly thought I'd burst when they did their Crazy In Love / Thrift Shop mix and then Love Like This / Be Faithful. Just brilliant! We danced ALL night - and everyone agreed they were the best band anyone has ever heard at any party or wedding. We're torn between not wanting to share them and not wanting to miss out on the chance to hear them again... so we've landed on the latter and have recommended them to at least 3 couples who are getting married this year and next. Please pass on our ENORMOUS thanks to the band for bringing the ultimate party to our wedding. We had so much fun and loved every second of it."
