Festival Folk Wedding Band Hire London

Northern Quarter offer it all for your special day. From their festival-style folk set perfect for tipi and barn weddings, a thrilling live set as well as an additional option of a roaming set to mingle with your guest during the reception, Northern Lights are the ultimate band for your wedding.

“I just wanted to let you know that we were really pleased with our choice of The Northern Quarter to play at our wedding. They were so much fun and the quality of their music was brilliant. They were professional and reliable and also put up with the groom insisting he wanted to be on stage (repeatedly)! Please thank all of the lads from us for making the evening of our wedding such a success. Everything ran very smoothly and we didn't need to worry about anything. All of the guests (of all ages) have been saying how brilliant they were.”
Amy & Hari - Wedding

Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / info@northern-quarter-band.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.

BOOK THE BAND

Once you have decided that Northern Quarter are the band for you, Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.

PLANNING

In the lead up to the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.

ON THE NIGHT

Northern Quarterwill arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 40 mins if you prefer.The standard price for Northern Quarter is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.

Northern Quarter also offer a brilliant live lounge-style acoustic set, this is the perfect addition to your drinks reception and can really help set the mood for a great celebration. As the musicians are already booked to perform in the evening, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate band for your daytime entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

To discuss hiring Northern Quarter to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@northern-quarter-band.co.uk.

I had these guys come play at my bar after seeing them busking in Kingston. They did a great job of getting the crowd going, and everyone clearly felt very comfortable watching them.

Northern quarter played at our wedding in October and honestly they made the day! Everyone loved them! The oldies, the kiddies and especially the single ladies ;)!

Thank you SO much for making our wedding so bloody awesome! Everyone has told us you’re the best band they’ve seen. You MADE our wedding!! Loved the sax player coming out into the crowd and helping sing along to Teenage Dirtbag!! THANK YOU for the bottom of our hearts. Backstreets Back was an epic encore choice.

Please will you pass on our thanks for an amazing performance by the band, they were awesome. Their music was exceptionally popular and the dance floor was filled from the first dance to the last. I am sure Ted helped by getting the crowd to chant "one more song" as the room was filled with laughter and urging him on. (Ted is 7 going on 27 and a true festival fan). They obviously enjoyed our northern friendliness and hospitality and spent some time with the guests late into the night (or should that be morning!!) Thank you again for organising them. All worked perfectly.
