About Electric Idols

Your resident High-Energy Wedding Band from Yorkshire. Rock, Pop, Indie, and a little bit of everything else!
Wedding band
Doncaster
Public liability insurance of £5 million

WE’RE A DOUBLE AWARD-WINNING ACT! WINNER OF “BEST BAND” – THE NATIONAL WEDDING INDUSTRY AWARDS 2021 & 2023 So, you’ve been sifting through the best wedding bands Yorkshire has to offer for a few hours. You don’t want any of the usual cheesy stuff – maybe you’re looking for something a bit more authentic? A super energetic group that plays rock, pop, indie and a bit of everything else? We’re one of the hardest-working Yorkshire bands around and we don’t rest until the dance floor is full and the job is done! From the first note to the encore, we perform the coolest songs we can squeeze into our high-energy set which is basically designed to test the weight capacity of your dance floor. We bring our unique brand of entertainment to venues across the UK and we’re proud to say we’ve built a reputation as one of the best wedding bands in Yorkshire, but don’t take our word for it – grab a cuppa and catch our band’s live videos or find out more about what we do at weddings! ABOUT US Our style and swagger are just like the bands we cover – Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Kings of Leon, and even older groups like The Beatles and The Stones, but we put our own little twist on the songs we play – if it was just the same old stuff you’ve heard a thousand times before then you might as well hire a DJ, right?! We do our best to be unique in what we do – we started setting ourselves apart from other bands by covering a few ‘different’ songs – tunes like No Diggity by Blackstreet and Rhythm Of The Night by Corona. After a few gigs, we realised these songs go down amazingly well, and they’ve now become staples of our set list! Regardless of the songs we play, we’re here to fill the dance floor with as many bodies as humanly possible. This is why we were put on this earth, and we can assure you that you won’t find a more energetic, professional and well-rehearsed band anywhere else. WHERE ARE WE BASED? Our HQ is in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, but we’re used to travelling the length and breadth of the UK, performing at weddings and parties across the country. If your event is two hours away, that’s pretty standard stuff for us! WEDDINGS We play more big days than any other event, so we’ve got some experience when it comes to helping create an awesome, memorable day! PARTIES A party isn’t a party without music, and there’s nothing that will make a brilliant, unforgettable night like a live performance! CORPORATE EVENTS We play several large-scale corporate events each year. We’re used to bringing a big party to a big crowd with a bit of an oomph! A ROCKING LIVE SHOW It’s safe to say that Yorkshire wedding bands are some of the hardest-working, most energetic groups out there – we don’t shy away from jumping around that stage! We want every wedding and event we play to be awesome and we consider it our job to make it a fun, memorable party with some quality moves and possibly even some ties around heads! WEDDINGS ACROSS THE UK FROM YORKSHIRE Like other bands from Yorkshire, we play in our home county a lot. There are a lot of fantastic wedding venues in the region which have helped us become one of the most popular wedding bands in North Yorkshire and West Yorkshire, but for the most part, we perform across the country and a lot of our gigs are actually several hours away – usual stuff for bands for hire! Yorkshire is just our base of operations. LOVIN’ LIFE AS A WEDDING AND PARTY BAND It’s a great time to be a wedding band. Yorkshire is host to some amazing weddings and we’re lucky enough to travel the country performing at some of the coolest events around. We love playing live music and this helps us translate what we do to a brilliant gig. When the party is rocking and everyone is having a great time it really spurs us on to get down with the guests and provide the sweetest performance we’ve ever done! That’s why it’s easy for us to offer these guarantees… DANCE-FLOOR GUARANTEE A no-nonsense Yorkshire band’s guarantee – if nobody dances during our performance we’ll give you a full refund of our fee, no questions asked! NO CHEESE GUARANTEE You could say it’s a Yorkshire wedding bands’ duty to avoid cheese at all costs. That means there there won’t be any sing-alongs to Mustang Sally at any point during the night!

We had the pleasure of having the electric idols perform twice on our wedding weekend. We had the full band on the evening of our wedding and the daytime duo the following day at our wedding garden party. On both occasions they were amazing! Not only are they super talented, but they are such a lovely group of guys. We had so many guests say how much they enjoyed their performances. Thank you so much guys, we couldn’t recommend you enough!

Electric Idols' Song list

Our repertoire is made up of rock, indie, pop and lots of other stuff thrown in for good measure! We play a wide selection of songs so that we can get folks of all ages up dancing. We of course like to include a few hits by local Yorkshire bands like Arctic Monkeys and Kaiser Chiefs, but we cover stuff by The Killers, Kings of Leon and a few chart hits too. Not to mention a few quirky R&B tracks that always get people up!
You’ll be able to choose your favourite songs from our set list before your event – or just leave it to us and we’ll choose the songs that we think will work the best for you and your guests in particular. It just depends on how much input you want really!

Customer questions

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

Swinton Park, Hazlewood Castle, Oulton Hall, Rudding Park Hotel, Wood Hall Hotel and Spa, Bolton Abbey, Sandburn Hall, Goldsborough Hall, The Mansion, Rise Hall, and many more!

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band, our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows: Vocals, Guitar, Bass, and Keyboard. Electric Idols also perform an acoustic duo that is a great addition if you’d like some more chilled entertainment a little earlier in the day.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We generally aim to arrive to evening events at 6pm. We’re happy to arrive as early as 5pm if it helps with the flow of your venue’s setup, but if you require us before 5pm we would be required to charge an early arrival fee at £40 per hour.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Absolutely. This is a really popular request and we actually offer this service for free. If you'd like a DJ service via our PA after the final set, we can provide this as an add-on. Please get in touch for more info!

How much time do you need to set up?

It takes us around an hour to fully set up and sound check our equipment. It then takes us around 20 minutes to get changed and warm up our voices, and just generally prepare so that nothing goes awry!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

This is totally up to you. We write a personalised set list for all our events, usually including the songs we know go down the best everywhere we go, but you’re free to have as much input on this as you want!

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

All bookings come with a full PA and Lighting rig, suitable for 300 guests. We usually say we need 4.5m (width) x 3.5m (depth) to setup, but we can often fit into smaller spaces than this. If you think the space at your venue is smaller than our recommendation, get in touch and we’ll let you know if we can squeeze in.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We’re more than happy to learn and perform your first dance free of charge if it's your wedding you are booking for - if not we're happy to take a 'special song request' for any random track you can think of, as we can usually arrange almost anything to suit the bands' instruments and playing style.
