Acoustic Bands for Hire

Here at Music8, we have a quality selection of the best acoustic bands for weddings, corporate events, and parties across the UK. If you are looking for an acoustic wedding band, then you are in the right place. Acoustic bands come in different formats, and the most common is an acoustic duo, trio and 4-piece bands. Acoustic wedding bands can cover all phases of your wedding day, from the wedding ceremony, drink receptions, and the evening wedding entertainment.

Wedding Ceremonies

Popular choices for wedding ceremonies are solo acoustic artists and acoustic duos, which is usually acoustic guitar and vocalist. These artists are very adaptable and can set up quickly at a venue or a church where the acoustics are often exceptional. Acoustic artists can perform unplugged and perform a song for the walk down the aisle and the signing of the register. Also, a song as you leave the ceremony behind to a favourite song you both love. Other popular choices for a ceremony would be an acoustic string quartet performing background music while your guests are taking their seats.

Afternoon Drinks Receptions
An acoustic band for a drinks reception can cover all styles of music, including laid back background music to popular pop and chart songs. If you have booked an artist for the actual ceremony, they can easily move on to the drinks reception and set up quickly and ready to perform for your guests. Other options are to hire acoustic roaming bands especially suitable for outside festival weddings. With acoustic guitar and other acoustic instruments, these bands will roam around performing their live music, encouraging your guests to join in the fun.

​Evening Entertainment
We have lively acoustic bands to cover your evening wedding party with the likes of Mumford style acoustic bands. If acoustic guitar, double bass, drums and engaging singers are your fancy, these folk style bands will not disappoint. You and your guests will be enthralled listening to songs by Ed Sheeran, George Ezra, Mumford and Sons, plus many, many more. We have the best acoustic folk-rock bands consisting of talented musicians that will get your party bouncing. Are you looking for your favourite song for the first dance?

Sound Limiters at Venues

More and more venues are now having sound limiters fitted at their venue. This is a device that measures the level of noise in decibels. When the pre-set level is reached the sound limiter will cut off the supply to the bands instruments which might trigger damage to their equipment.

There is a visual sign on the limiter that services a “traffic light” system:

Green indicates there is no problem.

Amber indicates sound levels are approaching the optimum limit.

Red indicates it has actually been breached.

If the light stays on red for just a few secs, after that the sound limiter is going to cut off the power.

Many limiters are set between 85-95 decibels but differ from one venue to another. Factors for a limiter having to be fitted are mainly the locality or from neighbours complaining regarding the noise.

The benefit of hiring an acoustic band is that they should not be affected by a limiter as they perform unplugged or with low amplification.

Acoustic Bands FAQs

All our live acoustic bands and acoustic duos will have Public Liability Insurance (PLI) certificates and a portable appliance tested (PAT). All our acoustic wedding bands can provide these for your venue if required.

The average set-up and sound check for an acoustic band is around 60-90 minutes, depending on how far it is from the car park to the stage. A solo acoustic artist or an acoustic duo will take less time. The standard set times for an acoustic band will either be 2 x 60 minutes or 3 x 40 minutes with around 20-minute breaks in between. Most acoustic wedding bands will also provide a free DJ service in between sets. Prices will include a 6 pm arrival to a midnight finish if you hire an acoustic wedding band for the evening entertainment.

A professional acoustic band will come self-contained with sound equipment and some additional lighting for the performance area if it is required.

Depending on the line-up, a 3-piece party band will need approx. 3m x 3m. It will increase by an additional meter for any extra band members. So, for example, a 4-piece band would need 4m x 3m and so on. This space is required, for PA equipment, drums, amps, and any lighting, etc. Check the venue has enough space before booking any acoustic band, and 13 amp plug sockets are available to plug in the equipment.

A supply of refreshments, like soft drinks, coffee, tea, and water, plus a buffet-style meal, would be much appreciated by the musicians especially, if it is for a wedding as it will likely be a long day for them. Check that they can park vehicles as close to the church or venue as possible to save time unloading their equipment. If you are having an event outside, your acoustic band will need some cover like a gazebo, and electrical supply. Always check the venue for a sound limiter as it may dictate the wedding band for hire. An acoustic Duo and solo acoustic act will not be affected by a sound limiter.

All our acoustic bands for weddings will take time to learn your favorite song, whether it is for the first dance at your wedding or a special song for a birthday party or any other special occasion.

All our acoustic bands for hire will have deputies to cover any band member that cannot make the day of the event through illness or for any reason.

Solo acoustic artists for £300. An acoustic duo from £500, Trios and 4-piece from £700-£1500.

To hire wedding bands through our live entertainment agency is simple. Once you have picked your acoustic band, we will take a deposit to secure your band or artist. A contract will be produced for you and the band, for peace of mind. Final payment of the outstanding balance will be required the week of your wedding or event.
