Since 2015, we've been helping clients from all over the world to hire the finest local wedding bands Italy has to offer.
This could range from an outstanding pop covers band performing pop and rock from the 50s to current chart music, to an amazing jazz band performing classic Italian jazz as well as American jazz standards for a laid-back cocktail reception in Italy.

The average cost to hire a wedding band in Italy is 1,950 EUR. This is for a pop and rock covers band made up of 4 or 5 band members, e.g. The Somethings.
Our most popular Italy wedding band is Trio Toscano, whose average price for weddings and private parties in Italy is 1532.97 EUR.
Larger groups (e.g. soul, funk and Motown bands in Italy) will cost more as there are more musicians and singers in the band. They can cost up to 3,000 - 4,000 EUR.
Other factors that will affect the cost of hiring a wedding band will be travel expenses – e.g. if the band has to travel from the south of Italy to a venue in the north, then the cost will be increased significantly.
We also have some outstanding larger bands, which feature full horn section (usually saxophone, trumpet and sometimes trombone). These line-ups deliver the wow factor for weddings and corporate events, and there are several of these bands located in Italy.
There is an incredible amount of musical talent in Italy and a thriving cover band scene. FixTheMusic is proud to have curated a comprehensive selection of Italian wedding bands – young, dynamic and cool bands who know how to delight crowds, large and small.
Which are the most popular locations for destination weddings in Italy?

Should I hire a wedding planner for a destination wedding in Italy?
Most couples looking to marry in Italy will hire a wedding planner to smooth the process for them. We work with the most experienced and reliable wedding planners in the country, so please get in touch if you need advice about this.
What is the SIAE tax for hiring live music in Italy?
It's a licence fee that couples must pay if they wish to have a live band perform cover songs at their wedding. The fee is distributed to copyright holders of the songs performed. Italian authorities can be notoriously strict about this, and it is the event booker's responsibility to obtain the licence. There's more information in this blog post.
Do you also offer other wedding entertainment?
Yes, at FixTheMusic we have a full range of entertainment options for live music. This includes acoustic duos, DJs, saxophonists, string quartets and other musicians. There are also several non-music acts like fire dancers, wedding photographers and caricaturists!

"My husband and I booked The Puppets for our wedding on the 3rd September 2019. We would like to write a review for you to add to their profile. The Puppets were outstanding. Their performance was professional and flawless. We had such an amazing time and all of our guests enjoyed their performance so much. We would highly recommend this band, the were professional and efficient from start to end. Many thanks and best regards, Eleonora and Alexander."
"Hi Marco, Thanks so much for playing for us on Sunday. You guys were great and all of the guests really enjoyed it. So sorry that we didn’t really introduce ourselves properly. It was all a bit chaotic because the dinner had overrun. Also, apologies that you weren’t able to play the full set as planned but we really appreciate you keeping the music on while you were packing up. Many thanks again and let us know if you’d like us to leave a review anywhere. Best Regards."
As one client recently said in a review of FixTheMusic...
"Absolutely outstanding. When you are organizing the biggest day of your life with the added constraints of having a wedding abroad, what you need around you is contacts that are understanding, great at communicating and strive to help you create the most perfect day of your lives. Ed and his team are all of the above and then some. Exceptional communication, even when a small concern popped into my head late at night, my enquiry was dealt with instantly and I was put at ease.
FixTheMusic's website is simple to use and gives you so many options. Such a great experience. Being a covers band fan, I truly wanted a covers band at my recent wedding. Traveling from England to be married in the beautiful Tuscan hills, I initially thought finding a band was going to be difficult, especially with the language barrier. However, with my first google search for a Tuscan band, FixTheMusic popped up.
The website was so easy to use, my partner and myself instantly found bands of our desired area. We could then watch YouTube clips of the artists. This is where we feel in love with The Florentine covers band “The Somethings”. Wow now here is an exceptional band that were rehearsed to perfection and gave us the best show we have ever seen. Fabio, the lead guitarist and spokes person for the band bent head over backwards to provide us with the most perfect day. We asked if the band would mind if they learned a new song, our song to be played as our first dance. They were happy to do this and completely smashed it. What a performance.
Also, we asked if Fabio and his fabulous lead singer Chiara, would do a small acoustic set for our wedding ceremony. Also this was not a problem. Their performance here was so emotional that there was not a dry eye. They created the most intense magical moments for that will live with us and our guests for the rest of our lives. We can not thank them enough and we fully recommend them over and over as the best covers band we have ever seen.
So all in all from Ed, his team and The Somethings, we had the most exceptional service ever and made our wedding planning journey a dream. Thank you to each and every one of you. Jodi & Dee xx"
"The Florence Jazz Band made our special occasion the best night of our whole trip to Italy. They provided the perfect ambiance for a beautiful afternoon cocktail party and then dinner. We felt very lucky to have word-class jazz musicians playing live at our event. Camilla was my contact with the band (the singer) and she was very easy to communicate with and simply a lovely person. She even had one of the kids up on stage with her for a song! If ever back in Italy and planning something like this again, I would certainly contact them for another show."
"Contattiamo la band per il nostro matrimonio, subito siamo colpiti dalla professionalità, dalla cortesia e dalla disponibilità che Pino mette a nostra disposizione. Al nostro evento abbiamo ricevuto solo complimenti dai nostri invitati per la scelta della band. La musica che propongono varia dagli anni 70 ai tempi d'oggi con una varia scelta di brani per i singoli momenti della cerimonia. Per una band di cinque persone con questo livello di professionalità, quello che si paga è stato il giusto prezzo per rendere indimenticabile l'evento. Grazie Sonics. Manuel e Ilenia."
"THE best band I have ever seen with the most amazing, fabulous musicians! From the 1st song till the last, we were dancing. AMAZING!!!"
"These guys were amazing, like other reviews, all our guests were raving about them afterwards, about how they could go from Bruce Springsteen to Frank Sinatra with such ease and sound so good! Their rendition of Sweet Home Alabama was superb, especially as we had six people from Alabama in our wedding party. Even though I booked them for our wedding, my now wife had arranged with them in secret to sing a song with them for me and they made her feel relaxed and able to give a great surprise performance. Unfortunately we were running late with the wedding schedule so we weren't able to give them as much time as we would have liked (and probably them too) to play, but I would not hesitate to book these guys again. The only thing I would say thing to improve upon is replying quicker to email communication as this was the first time I had used FixTheMusic, but after having them play, everything truly was great. Thank you so much! Rob & Susanna."
"They were absolutely delightful! They were professional and lovely and played amazing songs. They played the tunes we picked for our ceremony beautifully and then they stayed for the cocktail hour and played some more. We just left it for them to play whatever they wanted but made sure they were known tunes and they played a great mix of movies, classical and pop songs that everyone knew. Would definitely recommend them! Very easy to deal with, good price and from what I can gather they have several options. We could only afford a violinist and a cellist but they were very accommodating. I said what my budget was and asked what I could get and they sent through a couple of options! Would defo book them again!"
