Roaming Bands

Unlike traditional acoustic artists who set up their gear with their PA in one area of a venue, our mobile acoustic roaming bands are free to roam unamplified from one location to the next. The band can provide table-to-table entertainment and engaging your guests more interactively. This kind of band is usually known as roaming bands or sometimes strolling or wandering bands.

We can provide a great acoustic roaming band, including duos and trios, to suit any venue and any occasion and providing that great live music everyone wants to hear, and reducing the cost to hire.

A roaming band has one main difference to our conventional bands that sets it apart, and it’s right there in the name – these bands can get down off the stage and wander through the crowd! This makes them much more suited to events with small venues or venues which have no stage or performance space; they are able to roam freely and make use of any organic spaces, finding the best places to play and providing great music while they do it! 

Cover bands like soul & Motown need a stage to perform on requiring plenty of space for their instruments etc. Check out the videos of our roaming bands above, or give us a call to find out more about booking yours for the big event!

​All the Music8 professional roaming bands are experienced in playing weddings and large events, and we are happy to say that our roaming bands are particularly well-suited to the job! If you are having your drinks reception outside, for instance, with a roaming band you do not have a pa system to set up so they can perform anywhere any place.

This makes our acoustic bands perfect for wandering around outside for drinks receptions. They will bring that party atmosphere to your occasion encouraging your guests to join in the fun. If you require a function band then check out our live bands for hire covering music from every genre.

We know how important it is to have everything go perfectly on the big day – and our roaming wedding bands have played enough weddings to be familiar with the snags that can drag performance down on the day. If you cannot choose your wedding band, either through time or having too much else to do to prepare for the wedding, then we’re happy to do it for you! If you are choosing your wedding band here are a few pointers to look out for before booking a roaming band.

Where they are based: roaming bands may roam, but usually that just means around the venue or outside– make sure that the acoustic band you have chosen can make it to your venue on the day! We can provide bands all across the UK, so just let us know where you need the band!

What they can play: our roaming bands range from folk and pop bands to a jazz band, or even a mariachi band, so you are bound to find something you and your audience will love! To make this easier, we have included the standard repertoires of all of our roaming wedding bands on their pages, which you can find above, but they can also learn requests. If you have fallen in love with one of our roaming bands, but they are missing a few of your favourite tunes, just ask! When it comes to live music these bands never disappoint.

What they sound like: how does the band sound? Sometimes, whether we adore or dislike a band comes down to little things like instrument tone and vocal style, so make sure you listen to all your prospective bands before you make your booking. To make this easier, we have put videos of every band on their pages, which you can find above – you can watch them play a medley of songs across a range of styles and watch them move, interact and perform.

Can they be relied on: At Music8 Agency, the answer is always YES. Our bands are hand-picked professionals chosen for talent and flair, but also reliability and professionalism. Whichever acoustic band you choose, you can trust that we will do our utmost to make your day a fantastic one.

Of course, you can! How else would you get a feel for what they’re like? All of our roaming bands pages have a showreel on their dedicated pages, so feel free to not only listen but see them perform!

Go take a look at the showreels for any of the bands you fancy, and then feel free to send us a message on our Contact Us page or give us a ring on 07758116749 to make your booking – but don not hang around too long, these roaming bands for hire book up fast!

Your musicians and singers would appreciate some refreshments during the event or wedding reception, like tea, coffee or soft drinks. Check car parking is available close by the venue.

Prices vary according to the distance they have to travel and the number of musicians in the band. An average price for a trio would be around £900- £1250 for a wedding reception and a 4 or 5-piece band from £1500 -£2200. Mariachi bands can cost around £600 for a trio, but several musicians can be added. Feel free to contact us for a free quote at any time.

All our bands will have a deputy musician to cover any band member that is unable to make the day of the event or wedding through illness or for any over reason.

A roaming band will perform for either 2 x 45 mins or 2 x 60 mins with a break in between. Feel free to contact us if you are looking for something different. The bonus with a roaming band is if you book them for drinks receptions for example, they can exchange their acoustic guitars and swap them for electric guitars and perform at your evening reception bringing a high-energy performance to ensure the dance floor is full all night.

Booking roaming wedding bands, or even acoustic string quartets with Music8 Agency could not be simpler.
