Latest reviews of our Wedding Entertainers in West Sussex

19Eighties
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Excellent communication, friendly and willing to accommodate requests as much as possible, good sound, good quality singing and music performance. Perhaps would have liked more of upbeat, faster numbers but overall happy with the band and the booking."

The Liverpool Beatles
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"The guys were excellent I was unable to be prsent at the set up and soundcheck but they were great according to our team. The perdormance was great though "George" had a dodgy guitar lead and I thought they should have had a roadie looking after them. Sadly the restrictions in the St Georges Hall meant the final set didnt quite finish as planned but that was our issue not theirs. I would definitly book them again if i need a Beatles Act they are definitely one of the best."

FAQs about hiring Wedding Entertainers in West Sussex

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What entertainment should I have at a wedding?

What entertainment you’d like for your wedding depends on your tastes as a couple, budget and overall vision for your big day. However, at Encore Musicians, we help thousands of couples every year in the UK plan entertainment for their wedding day therefore we are experts in choosing the right musicians for your big day. For ceremonies, it’s ideal to have musicians who can provide atmospheric background music, such as string quartets, harpists and singing guitarists. For the cocktail hour (or drinks reception), musicians such as jazz bands, acoustic duos or saxophonists, can provide a more upbeat ambience whilst still allowing for conversation amongst guests. Last but not least, for the evening party, you want musicians who can keep the dance floor full. Our Wedding and Party Bands give engaging, lively performances, or you can opt for a Wedding DJ who can create seamless playlists perfect for guests of all ages and tastes. For something a little bit different, consider Ceilidh Bands, a more unique, interactive form of entertainment or Soul and Motown bands, a timeless and classy option for couples who want something a bit more unique. Additionally, for a surprise element to wow your guests, consider singing waiters for unexpected wedding entertainment where the singers dress as waiters and then burst into song.
