You may not have heard of a Mariachi band previous to the Dorritos advert which starred the awesome, fun and very lovely Mariachi Mexteca. Before the advert, these guys made their living performing for weddings, private parties and corporate events. There are lots of similar bands available and they would be a great addition to any part of your day. Imagine these guys mingling among your guests during the drinks reception and creating a real fiesta style vibe. Or, you can book them as a surprise act between courses during the wedding breakfast before ramping it up and getting the party started for the evening fun and frolics!
1940s theme bands
Many brides are taking their wedding theme inspiration from the 1940s right now, and it’s easy to see why. From charismatic and sassy lounge singers to jazz bands and big bands, the options are plentiful. Many of the acts will offer coordinated dress, too, including authentic wartime or a glamorous suit or cocktail dress of the period. One thing’s for sure – they are all guaranteed to make your guests swing, sway, swizzle and swoon!
Here’s where the fairytale of the knight coming to save the princess can really come to life. You have your stunning castle venue, a beautiful flowing medieval style gown and your knight in shining armour… Next stop is the entertainment! From court jesters, jugglers and fire breathers in the day to a whole band of minstrels at night, our performers can bring you upbeat music of the era and even direct a traditional and extremely fun ceilidh dance.
Hiring a latin or salsa band for your evening reception will give you a one-way ticket to a scorching hot dance floor! They will bring style, flare, culture, colour and sizzling hot moves to your party, guaranteed! The styles and line-ups can vary as much as your budget will allow – choose from Cuban, Brazilian or Mexican bands, a duo or a nine-piece, and add dancers, drummers and more if you wish. The possibilities are endless!
Steel drum bands
So you’ve always dreamed of a tropical beach wedding but you can’t stand the thought of leaving anyone back at home. Fear not – you can easily bring the laid-back rhythms of the Caribbean into your big day in the form of a steel band. Imagine the sun shining on the lawn during your drinks reception and your guests sipping their cocktails to the relaxing sounds of the steel pan. Switch Champagne for rum cocktails and you could feel miles away in an instant!
James Bond theme bands
‘James Bond’ is a classic and timeless wedding theme – think sharp suits for the boys, a slinky figure-flattering dress for the bride and a glamorous black and white colour scheme. And for your evening entertainment it has to be a big band belting out the theme tune and all the hits from the movies – Goldfinger, Diamonds are Forever, Skyfall and more. This is a great evening entertainment option if you’ve got lots of different ages attending your evening party, as James Bond seamlessly links the generations and everyone will have a favourite hit.
