Tuesday 6th March 2018

If you’re looking at getting married in a barn, then hiring a festival style band is an absolute must! The band you hire for your wedding should capture the mood and vibe of your big day so what could be better than a festival band performing in a barn?! As luck would have it, The UK Wedding Band Directory looks after the best in the business! In this blog, I will give you an example of just a few of the best festival style wedding bands in the UK.

First up, it’s Smith & Sons! Covering an array of chart hits and party classics in a Mumford/folk style, this 4-piece outfit have been lighting up wedding receptions all over the UK. The London-based Smith & Sons sound as authentic as any festival style band I’ve ever heard, playing the songs you know and love, in a way you have never heard before. Their look is just as valid as their sound, making use of the double bass and banjo. This will certainly get your party going! When the evening is in full swing, they’ll grab their electric guitars and give you and your guests an exhilarating indie/rock set so you’ll never leave that dancefloor! Smith & Sons also offer the option of an afternoon acoustic set, completing the perfect musical package.

Next, we have The Daddy-O’s. Similarly to Smith & Sons, they offer a whole day of musical accompaniment, with a stunning afternoon acoustic set, a party-starting folk set, complete with banjo, acoustic guitar and the double bass, and finally a thrilling electric set to round off your big day in style. As well as performing modern day hits by the likes of Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber with a vintage twist, the 4-piece folk ensemble dig out the classics from acts like The Beatles, Johnny Cash and many more. They’ll even throw in a proper Rock N Roll medley, guaranteeing you’ll all be up dancing. The Daddy-O’s are based in Liverpool, a city with a great musical pedigree, and are available for weddings all over the UK.

Last up, its Festival nights. Their unrivalled musicianship, beautiful four-part harmonies and electrifying live performances has earned them the title of the UK’s most successful festival style wedding band and they are ready and waiting to perform for you on your big day! Like the previous two bands I’ve mentioned, they’ve got the music covered all day, kicking off with an acoustic live-lounge style set, then wowing your guest with a barnstorming folk set and rounding off your special day with fiery electric set. They are the complete band. With all of this behind them and a repertoire that spans across countless genres and 60 plus years of amazing music, they are the must have band for your wedding day.
