About The Joe Keegan Function Band

Bespoke, premium live music for any occasion.
Wedding band
Public liability insurance of £1 million

Over the last three years our band have played over 300 shows together. We've developed unparalleled live shows that are bound to get people involved and dancing throughout our performance. I pride myself in the fact that all the music we make is 100% live; without the use of prerecorded tracks. This is sadly not the industry standard for function and events bands. All our musicians are incredible, highly trained industry professionals stemming from the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester. We're keen to make your event as special as possible. With an already extensive repertoire of music, in numerous genres, it's guaranteed that we can work to create a set list that's perfectly bespoke to your event. (For weddings: We're more than happy to learn and play your first dance.)

Customer questions

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

Yes, the lead singer will be Joe! We also have a fantastic Female lead singer, Jodie. We strive to make sure the band you see is what you get on the night. All our musicians are incredible, highly trained industry professionals stemming from the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester

Do you have different line-up options?

We do have multiple line ups ranging from 3-12 pice bands. Our Pop & Party band is 5 piece standard, 6 with female vocals. Our Irish band is 5 piece standard 6 including a fiddle player. Our Motown Soul & Funk Band is from 6 - 9 depending on the size of the hot section. Our Special Events Band is up to 12 musicians with a string and horn section.

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

This is not an issue unless timing changes mean we are required to perform after 12am. Then in most cases additional fees will apply following the musicians union guidelines.

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

Absolutely. This is a popular request and we we provide this for an additional £100.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually need around an hour to set up, this varies with the size of band you've booked. We're happy to set up and soundcheck in the room turn around at weddings and prior to guest arrival at corporate events. However, if the band and crew are required to be at the venue for more than 5 hours then food should be provided.

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

Our set lists are crafted from countless performances and learning what works best to ensure guests dance and have an amazing time. However, we're definitely happy to chat through and make sure we find what works for your event.

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

Absolutely, our full PA and lighting system is included in your quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Happily, if you have requests we're happy to take up to 5 new song suggestions and always aim to get at least 3 of them into our set.

Amazing. I liased with Joe via messaging through encore, due to covid restrictions my wife and I had to change our wedding date multiple times over nearly two years. Joe was always quick to reply and professional. We had a fiddle as an extra as we wanted the 'Irish kind of twist which worked brilliant, Joe worked with us in regards to his playlist. The dance floor was busy and people noted rhe band during and after the wedding. Some of our guests even had humour with the band on the night as they were playing, Joe handled the crowd well. Would defiantly recommend Joe Keegan and his band to others Thank you Matthew and Cheryl
