The Wayfarers

Meet The Wayfarers, one of the UK's most exciting acoustic folk bands. With their triumphant renditions of the biggest tracks in folk, pop, Motown and rock, the Wayfarers will make your occasion an unforgettable festival of feel-good tunes. Composed of 2 extraordinary vocalists in addition to guitar, keys, sax, double bass and drums, The Wayfarers are easily recognisable by their full-bodied, hard-hitting sound. The talented musicians have performed for some of the world's most prestigious brands - including Amazon, Holland and Barrett and The Hut Group, as well as performing on the set of 8 out of 10 Cats.

Effortlessly polished, the energy of this charismatic band is infectious. Their folk-inspired spins on huge tracks from Justin Timberlake, Stevie Wonder and Bruno Mars set them apart; while their electrifying enthusiasm anchors the performance in an upbeat, celebratory atmosphere. Also specialising in folk classics from The Lumineers, Mumford & Sons, and Of Monsters and Men, there really is something for everyone in this band's vibrant repertoire. Stretching all the way from the 60s to contemporary chart-toppers, The Wayfarers' uplifting live show will thrill guests of all musical preferences.

The band offers a range of sets to fit your event to perfection, providing spectacular entertainment for any occasion and for any time of the day. Forming an elegant backdrop for champagne and cocktail receptions before the main event, The Wayfarers can transform into an authentic jazz band complete with a scintillating jazz set-list - featuring Ella Fitzgerald, Dave Brubeck, and Édith Piaf. Experienced jazz musicians, The Wayfarers' line-up can remain as a 5-piece or be reduced to a trio for this more intimate portion. The full outfit can then step onto the stage for the main performance, ready to stir the dance-floor into a frenzy. The band is also happy to perform a completely acoustic 60-minute roaming set as, free of cables, they'll mingle with your guests for an incredible and unique up-close performance.

And while The Wayfarers' show is flexible, it's also comprehensive. Guests will remain entertained even while the band isn't on-stage, with a complimentary playlist DJ service sounding out between sets. The band also provides full lighting and PA, and will learn and perform a first dance or special request as standard. That means a bespoke performance from The Wayfarers for your special day or occasion. The Wayfarers are a wedding band from Liverpool who are available for performances at events all over the UK.

With glowing reviews and a truly stunning sound, The Wayfarers are an easy choice for weddings, private parties, and corporate events alike. Hire this legendary festival folk band today - while you can!

Live Band Review
"My partner and I were really indecisive as to whether to hire a band or a DJ and made the final decision to go with a band. We went on to chose 'The Wayfarers' to perform at our wedding and I cannot articulate how impressed we were from the service from start to end. The guys were not only an amazing act that got everybody on the dance floor, but a truly wonderful group of guys that went out of there way to exceed our expectations. I would like to especially thank the guys for engaging and performing with my bridesmaid Mia, joining them on her saxophone - including sound checks before hand. Also, we really appreciated them spending the time to interpret our 'first dance' choice - you were an amazing experience and made our wedding, I would highly recommend and hands down a 5/5!"

Live Wedding Function Band
"I can't thank you enough for making our wedding extra special! We booked The Wayfarers for our wedding reception and they honestly had the dance floor full all night. The band were really friendly and set up with no problems, and had spoken to us about their set list before hand. We needn't have done because they knew exactly what worked, so we didn't have to worry about the music for the whole evening. It was great to have the DJ service in between sets to keep everyone dancing. Honestly couldn't have booked a better band. The only negative was that they had to finish! I'd book them again in a heartbeat. Thank you again!"
Wedding Music Band
