Why Hire a Showband for Your Wedding or Event?

Our selection of UK show bands are the ultimate form of live musical entertainment. They are the first choice for luxury, destination weddings across the world, high-end corporate parties and other VIP events. Luxury event planners and wedding planners turn to these bands when they need a reliable band to pull out all the stops for their client.

The showbands we have selected on FixTheMusic include some of the UK's finest musical talent: singers who tour the world with celebrities and session musicians at the very top of their game.

Each show band also has vast experience of performing at luxury Jewish weddings, both in the UK and across Europe.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Showband in the UK?

The starting price to hire a wedding showband for an event in the UK is usually around £3,000. The exact price will vary depending on the number of musicians and singers you book.

At the upper end, the cost can be between £10,000 - £20,000.

One of the most popular size of showband is a 12-piece wedding band. This size of band usually allows for multiple singers, a horn section, as well as the usual guitars, drums and bass. Pretty much any other combination is possible: from 10-piece, 11-piece, 13-piece, 14-piece wedding bands – the options are endless.

What Instruments Are Included in a Showband?

Each show band will offer different options and line-ups depending on what you require. Our showbands are more than happy to create bespoke arrangements for your event.

The usual line-up will be one or two singers (usually a mix of male and female singers), guitar, bass guitar, drums and keyboard. The next addition is often a horn section made up of sax, trumpet and possibly trombones.

The bands can add more singers, a string section (violins and cellos) and some even offer the option to add a full gospel choir.

These larger options are truly spectacular – both in look and sound. If you're really looking to wow your guests, then a 14-piece showband is guaranteed to blow them away. Our Gatsby showbands also feature dancers and other elements to put on the best show for you and your guests.

Where Will the Showband Perform?

Our showbands are available to perform anywhere in the world.

As the UK's capital city with numerous types of showband, London is the most popular area for showbands to perform – most frequently at large private events and 200+ person weddings.

In London, our showbands are regular performers at some of the cities top wedding venues, including the Rosewood Hotel , The Goring, The Beaumont, Corinthia, Claridge's in Mayfair and The Wellesley.

Outside of London, our showbands travel the length of the country frequently. They have performed in other parts of south-east England (in Kent and Berkshire for example), as well as further north, in Manchester and Leeds, as well as in Scotland.

Beyond the UK, the bands have vast experience entertaining at international conventions and destination weddings in countries such as Portugal, France, Spain, Italy, Greece, Dubai, Bahrain, Oman and Turkey.
