    Why Hire a Big Band or Rat Pack Wedding Band?

    If you're looking to soak your big day in glamour and give all your guests an experience they'll never forget, there's nothing quite like a big band in full swing on your wedding day! The mere sight of the instruments glistening under the lights is enough to add the wow factor to your function, but once the excitement and anticipation of the live big band experience has all your guests at the edge of your seats, nothing will compare to the moment the musicians start the evening and play you into your first dance! In perfect harmony, big bands bring the past to life and put a new spin on the present, giving you a spellbinding performance few people get to experience up close.

    How Much is it to Book Big Bands?

    The size, popularity, and the distance they have to travel will all affect the price of hiring your chosen wedding big band or rat pack band. Smaller swing and Rat Pack line ups generally start from £700 to £1000, while 5 piece bands and larger orchestras might cost anywhere from £1100 - £2000 or more.

    We'll work with any budget, and thanks to our eclectic variety you're sure to find the perfect band for your requirements. Our industry experts vet all the artists on our books, so you can rest assured knowing every big band we represent comprises the country's finest musicians!

    What is a Wedding Big Band or Rat Pack Band Going to Play?

    You could book a strictly 1940s big band for hire, or a Postmodern Jukebox style band to reinvent your favourite contemporary songs - the best wedding big bands are those who can cater their show to your exact needs!

    With hugely varied repertoires, our Rat Pack bands and big bands don't just cover the classics from Duke Ellington, Glen Miller, Frank Sinatra and Sammy Davis Jr. - they also delve into pop, rock, soul and Motown from the ages, covering artists like Pharrell Williams, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Beyoncé to name a few. If you've got guests of all ages on the dance floor, a big band who can do justice to both the old and the new is the perfect way to keep every guest happy!

    All our bands have crafted their set-lists using years of experience playing at past events, and know exactly which songs work to give you and your audience the best night of live music. They'll likely consult with you on which songs you're eager to hear and try to work them into the night!

    What's Included When You Hire a Rat Pack or Big Band?

    All our bands offer something unique, but you can often expect a band to supply their own high-quality and PAT tested PA system and lighting, recorded music between sets, and your first dance song or a special request if they don't already know it!

    Always check what your chosen band supplies in their optional extras. The large line ups of our big bands and swing orchestras means you'll probably have the option to add extra musicians to fill out the sound, or request additional sets (acoustic sets for your cocktail drinks, for example) before or after the main performance.

    Entertainment Nation

    Excellent company from start to finish. When we initially enquired for a wedding singer we had very specific requirements for our wedding day. Having looked through the large portfolio of singers we found just the performer. We had everything lined up until a last minute change meant we had to change our singer. Entertainment nation were very responsive in their communication and extremely helpful. We owe a lot of thanks to these guys as they helped arrange a performer whom of which gave the performance of a lifetime, and truly made our wedding day a special occasion. Superb service and a company that massively cares about their customer's needs. Thanks again!!
