The Ideal

The Ideal are a 4-piece, Surrey-based wedding band who play all your favourite rock, pop, dance and funk, as well as nostalgic classics to get kids of the 80s and 90s into the party mood!

These talented and passionate musicians put everything into every performance, delivering the energy you need to fill up the dance floor! Every song they perform is laced with The Ideal's signature funky style - just try resisting the urge to sing along when they belt out their renditions of legendary songs like "Take on Me" by A-ha!

Experienced and highly trained, the band members are living their vocation: they've been performing as a unit since 2016 and are all alumni of The Academy of Contemporary Music in Guildford.

The Ideal are totally self contained and bring PA and lighting to set up at your venue. They'll provide a playlist DJ service while they're not on stage to keep you entertained, and are here to make your night extra special by learning your first dance and a special request as standard in their booking fee. Looking for a bigger sound to fill out the night? The band also come as a sumptuous 6-piece, with trumpet and sax for some brassy bliss. There are also lots of acoustic sets on offer, perfect for your afternoon drinks - get in touch to find out more!

The Ideal are available to perform up and down the UK and further afield, so if you're looking for a wedding band to get everyone dancing, look no further.

Everything you need for an amazing night is right here - book The Ideal now!

"A personal thank you for the band's amazing flexibility on Saturday. Not only did we get a mic long enough to stretch for the speeches, they were wonderfully flexible with an amended timetable and put on one hell of a show!! The rendition of 'Shut Up' with the Groom rapping was one of my wedding highlights, it could not have gone off any better. Please pass my thanks onto the band - I've got a few friends getting married and will get as many recommendations out there as I can. Thanks so much, have an amazing week and best of luck with the rest of wedding season. All the best."
Wedding Band Review
"Just wanted to say a huge THANK YOU to The Ideal for coming and performing at our event on Saturday. They turned up when they were supposed to, got themselves sound-checked and sorted with Barney from the other band and their sets were brilliant!!! Everyone was impressed at how such a young group of people could produce such a good, and whole sound. I hope they enjoyed it too! Thank you to the two of you as well for being so easy to deal with throughout the whole booking process - it really does make a difference when you're dealing with professionals! I'll certainly be using the band again in the future, and would recommend without hesitation!"
