The Lightmen, one of the hundreds of bands to see UK couples: if you're thinking that DJs are the only option for your wedding soundtrack, then I need to let you in on a little secret. Wedding bands are totally a thing, can fit within your budget, and you don't have to do any work at all to find a band who fits your wedding theme. How the heck can this be? It's time you met Entertainment Nation. Entertainment Nation is a UK-based entertainment agency specializing in matching couples with their perfect wedding entertainment. Whether you're after live musicians for your wedding ceremony or a band to rock your reception, they've got a band who will fit the bill and rock your literal world. Plus, who doesn't want to feel like they're at a live concert at their wedding?! The Sipsmiths What kind of bands? The biggest misconception about wedding bands is that you'll be stuck with a genre that doesn't match your taste. It does NOT have to be Jon Lovitz from The Wedding Singer, I swear. Our partners at Entertainment Nation are musicians themselves so they have the knowledge and connections to know all of the hottest bands in your area. You can choose from hundreds of super talented acts in a huge range of genres. From traditional pop, rock, and soul wedding bands to Mumford and Sons-style folk bands to vintage-themed bands to rock'n'roll bands straight from the fifties, contemporary orchestras, psychedelic rock bands, gypsy jazz bands, medieval minstrels, and many more. Since offbeat weddings are often themed, it's HUGE that you can have stellar live music to match your whole aesthetic. Sing It Back Can we hear some examples? Heck yes! Head to this page to see profiles of bands where you can filter genres, budgets, and see videos of their performances to see if they fit what you're dreaming up. And trust, there are loads of affordable options. I think I spent 30 minutes just browsing around watching videos, so it's clear that they're entertaining as hell. And if you're already set on music, don't forget to check out their other entertainment options like DJs, magicians, comedians, caricaturists, and singing waiters(!). Valentina Jazz Band Ace! Any proof that it works? Oh yes! Here are just a few of the testimonials from happy clients who booked winning entertainment from Entertainment Nation… "We had an absolute blast at our wedding, the band exceeded our our expectations and were AMAZING! Everyone we spoke on to the night and since our wedding talks so highly of the band. The lead singer was so incredible — her voice is insane, the whole band are incredibly talented and their repertoire was exactly what we were looking for; real floor fillers! Our dance floor was a busy, sweaty mess for hours and everyone loved it!" "We couldn’t have been happier with the service from The Jetters. They were friendly and approachable right from setting up to pack up! They played some amazing music that all age groups could enjoy, without the heavy drumming beat which some guests said they do not like. Our friends and family commented on their wonderful singing voices and the talented way they played their instruments! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for adding something special to our perfect day!” "We booked our band through Entertainment Nation for our wedding and we couldn’t have been more pleased! They made our day extra special. Their sound was funky and fresh and they had everyone tearing up the dance floor. The band communicated with us well and provided a very professional service. They were willing to meet individual requirements and learn our first dance song. The booking process with Entertainment Nation was simple and smooth with questions answered quickly. To be honest, this wasn’t the cheapest option and my partner and I were a little dubious about parting with the cash at first, but we feel the service we have received and quality of the entertainment we feel it has been worth every penny." Cosmic Balloon If you want something a bit more exciting than the usual at your ceremony (harpist? solo singer?), reception (folk rock band? Motown tribute?), or cocktail hour (magician? rock violin?!), then you should definitely go see some of the entertainers ready to make your dance floor bangin' at Entertainment Nation.
