The Best Yorkshire Wedding Bands

The Best Yorkshire Wedding Bands

Your wedding day in Yorkshire will be an occasion you will never forget and you will want to make sure that everyone enjoys the party - that’s why it’s so important to choose the best in entertainment.

For the very best wedding bands in Yorkshire, Elizabeth James Events recommends Tailored Entertainment. Whatever your musical taste, Tailored will have a band that perfectly suits the mood of your day!

If you’re looking for the at ‘Festival Feeling’ you will just love The Dials - a fresh, contemporary function band that bring the heady atmosphere of an unforgettable summer festival to your wedding. Their set list is packed to bursting with killer tunes featuring a little something for every one of your guests. From their acoustic driven opener to their blistering indie-rock finale, there’ll be something to coax even the shiest wallflowers onto the dance floor. Bandit promise a night filled with energy, big tunes and seriously good fun.

Then there’s The Daddy-O’s - one the North’s most in-demand wedding and function bands for vintage themed and festival style events. On offer is an unforgettable night of live music - from the first song to last, The Daddy O’s will beguile you with song after incredible song of the best loved classics from the last four decades of pop music. For peerless vintage entertainment, it has to be The Daddy O’s.

Indie Rock Trio, On the One, are another favourite when it comes to top class wedding bands. They are an indie rock trio with a thrilling twist. They take songs from a dizzying array of genres, spanning five decades of unforgettable pop music, and give them all a blistering, guitar-driven treatment that’s sure to prove a hit with every one of your guests.

On The One have been a pillar of the North West’s musical community for some time now; garnering a reputation for incredible live function entertainment that is unmatched by many of their contemporaries. The reason for their continued success lies in their eclectic repertoire - be it 60’s soul and Motown, 80’s pop, 90’s garage, noughties indie rock or contemporary chart hits, they tackle it all with peerless musicianship and a fun-filled live delivery.

All this makes them the perfect live music option for any wedding, party or corporate function with a mixed guest list - they have something for everyone, regardless of their age and taste. We guarantee every single one of your guests will be cramming the dance floor in equal measure, from first song to last! And with two hours of incredible live music coupled with concert-level stage production and a disco/DJ set as standard, all aspects of your evening’s entertainment will be taken care of in a single, easy booking.

If ‘something different’ is what appeals to you and you’d like to add a touch of class to your day, then have a look at The Roaming Tones - they really are special!

Their live show makes a great addition to wedding breakfasts, afternoon drinks receptions and large-scale corporate events looking for immersive entertainment with a twist!

Maybe you want to fill your occasion with soul in which case, Soul All-Nighters will exceed all your expectations!

This isn't you're run of the mill, regular function act. This isn't some sorry imitation of a Motown band. This is the real damn thing. Soul Unit are a slick, serious soul band - they bring an unforgettable party atmosphere, and mesmerising live music, that'll prove a sure fire way to light up your night.

Based in the musical powerhouse of Leeds, Soul Unit are an ensemble of eight of the city's finest young musical talents. Soul Unit are also available to play in other location in the UK including places like Manchester and London. Their collective ability is simply miraculous.

Combining a tight-knit rhythm section with stunning live horns and a beguiling lead singer, they perform a set list bursting with soulful Motown classics and modern chart hits that'll have every one of your guests jumping to their feet.

Their repertoire spans generations of the very best soulful pop favourites - from the Motown classics of Marvin Gaye and The Temptations, to 80's neo-soul icons like Prince and Chaka Khan. They even save space in their set list for huge, contemporary R&B hits from Destiny's Child, D'angelo and everything in between. All of this is delivered by a band of power, poise and infectious charisma. With a full two hours of your favourite funk, soul, R&B and Motown performed live and a disco/DJ set provides dead as standard, your whole evening's live entertainment is sorted in a single booking. Don't accept second best for your big night. Book Soul Unit, and get the real deal instead.

Once you’ve got the entertainment sorted, you will want to make sure that your venue looks the part and generates exactly the right atmosphere and ambience. Have you seen the amazing Premium White LED Dance Floor we have available to hire? It is perfect for so many venues and add a real touch of class.

You may well want to personalise your venue with large light-up letters so that those treasured photographs really capture the magic of the day - and you won’t want to compromise with the quality. That’s why we offer for hire, the finest choice in premium products.

Maybe you’ll want to spell out your new surname or initials in lights, or add the word ‘LOVE’. Perhaps you’ll have your own creative ideas and we can certainly help as we have the entire alphabet (and more) in all our collections. Numbers can be added as appropriate and our stunning white heart will really sum up what your wedding day is all about.

Our rustic, ‘Reclaimed Collection’ is perfect for barns and festival tipis, and our stunning, elegant ‘White Collection’ will enhance the most formal, grand location.

When you couple up an amazing live band from Tailored Entertainment with the classy, high-end wedding props supplied by Elizabeth James Events you can be certain that you will have the best of parties to celebrate your very special occasion.
