At Entertainment Nation we’re proud of all our talented artists, but on this beautiful Wedding Wednesday, it’s the turn of our acoustic wedding bands for hire and acoustic wedding duos for hire to shine. Acoustic bands for weddings are the perfect choice to complement a summer wedding: they can play the bride down the aisle with a romantic acoustic version of the couple’s favourite ballad, chill out sweltering guests with laid-back tunes to accompany their afternoon drinks and recharge flagging revellers by adding an acoustic twist to high tempo party songs at the evening reception.
We’ve established that acoustic bands are versatile and sound great, but there are other, more practical, reasons why booking an acoustic band is a good idea: if your venue is a tight squeeze or has limits on the volume a live wedding band can play at, an acoustic wedding band is the ideal solution. Without all the wires and heavy amplification equipment, acoustic bands take up less space and naturally play at a lower volume.
We are delighted to present to you ten of our most talented acoustic wedding bands and acoustic wedding duos. Enjoy while you dream of sipping champagne in the sun!
Charismatic and cool, The Jetters duo are in high demand. Evocative male vocals and deftly played acoustic guitar are the perfect accompaniament an afternoon drinks reception in the sun.
