So, you need entertainment for your wedding reception, but you don’t want a cheesy wedding band or DJ? Check out some of the options below.
If you’re tired of hearing cheesey songs at weddings and would rather hear some up to date music such as The Kings of Leon or The Foo Fighters, why not consider an indie/rock band. There are loads of great options to suit all budgets here. New Skin and Mister Kanish would both fit the bill particularly well
Vintage wedding receptions are very popular at the moment, partially because they are so versatile! But which era do you go for? Whatever era you decide on The Band Boutique have got a fab act to fit with your theme. Check them out at The Band Boutiques website.

If you really want to avoid cheeseyness hiring a classical band or performer could be the way to go. There’s lots of options though, pianists, harpists, string quartets, classic guitar. Even a classical opera singer. You can have a browse here.
If there’s a particular band you like this can be a great way to get everyone singing along to your favourite songs. Have a look here to see some great tribute acts. We particularly like the Blues Brothers Tribute who come with a 14 piece band and not only play music, but strive to entertain with a capital E!
Something to surprise your guests
Drop Dead Freddy are a band which perform all the classics, dressed as dead rock and pop stars! Ever wondered what Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Holly, Freddy Mercury, Paul Gray (Slipknot) and Eric Carr (Kiss) have been doing with their time? Apparentely they’ve started one of the South of the UKs best function bands. These five talented individuals play a fantastic range of rock and pop from the 50’s to today including some of the greatest sing-a-long and dance songs of modern times.
