Capitalising on the hugely in-demand and super-cool trend for 100% live, honest, folk, pop and rock music, Glastonbury Festival regulars Arcadia 5 are the original and very best band to take this highly popular scene by storm. There have been imitators, but nothing else has been so successful and stood the test of time like this band. As well as ticking all boxes for fans of Mumford & Sons, vintage acoustic folk and traditional Irish music they have an electric rock and pop repertoire to die for, make sure you check it out on the set-list tab above, they'll have every single person in the room on the dance-floor!
Arcadia 5 is a storming 5-piece, multi-instrumentalist line up of male vocals & guitar, violin & female vocals, bass, keyboards, mandolin and drums. This definitely isn't your average pub band, but instead an extremely highly-polished professional group of musicians with incredible experience whose passion is in delighting their audiences time after time after time.
Specialising in weddings, private functions and corporate events, Arcadia 5 demonstrate unrivalled attention to detail at each and every booking they take. State of the art sound and lighting equipment comes complete with the band as standard, as do 2 hrs of the most amazing live music entertainment you'll find anywhere UK-wide, plus a disco playlist service when they're not performing.

We absolutely loved Arcadia 5, we just sent them an email, pasted below FYI.
Hi everyone in Arcadia 5,
Thank you so, so much for making our wedding so incredible on Saturday. Absolutely everyone has told us how phenomenal you were, we’re so happy we chose you guys and even happier that you agreed to come all the way down to Bucks for us. Some people have commented they’ve never danced so much at a wedding, and that’s all down to you. Thank you.
Thanks also for your patience with the endless emails over set lists and surprises etc, we hope you didn’t mind too much.
We’ve had a sneak peek at our wedding photos, nothing of you guys just yet but as soon as we have the rest, we’ll share them with you in case you’d like to nab any.
Thanks a million and we hope we get to dance to your tunes again!

Simply brilliant. Great set list. Talented musicians and great style. Learnt our chosen songs at short notice which meant a lot. Even more so that they let me sing with them and even set up an iPad with my lyrics. So flexible and accommodating...I know for a fact that they went above and beyond compared to other wedding bands.
Also really laid back and flexible in terms of performance times.
They were absolutely amazing they made our night so special and a lot of our guest said they were really good.
Arcadia 5 played our wedding and they made the night! Their sound is fabulous and their range of music is just amazing. They are such a lovely, friendly group too. I would really recommend them!
Thank you so much x
Excellent band - Dance floor was full the whole time and received many positive comments about all the band. Would highly recommend them to anyone who wants a fun, party band for any occasion.
Arcadia 5 were incredible from start to finish! They truly helped to make the evening amazing and all our guests commented on how fantastic they were.
They were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them.
To everyone at Hireaband thank you for helping us choose and organise a brilliant band.
This band is AMAZING!!!!!! Arcadia 5 are Well worth the money, guests said it was the best band they had heard in years.Wish we could have carried the party on into the night, the dance floor was packed from start to finish :)
The Arcadia 5 set was absolutely superb, we loved every minute of it!!! We've had so many fantastic comments about you all saying that you are the best band they have ever heard!! Superb in every way :)
Wow, you guys are incredible, was great talking to you. We've been to so many weddings on both sides of the pond and Arcadia 5 are hands down the best wedding band EVER! I love my live music but I have never seen any band play such a wide variety of styles so convincingly. You were so authentic with the Irish stuff we actually thought you'd travelled over from Ireland especially to play the wedding. We're now heading back to Dublin with a handful of Arcadia 5 business cards to recommend them to everyone we know getting married back home. Really, THAT GOOD.
The best band I have ever seen, bar none. I booked them for my 50th. What a fiddle player. Awesome.
Just back from our honeymoon and wanted to thank you for the wedding music. Arcadia 5 were absolutely amazing and everyone has been raving about you since. A few people have asked whether you sell CD's and how they can go about getting one? Thanks again.
It was very easy to book the Arcadia 5 through Hireaband, and throughout the whole booking process Hireaband were very helpful, professional and quick to respond to any concerns. The band themselves were excellent, we had a lot of positive feedback on how good they were from our guests! I would definitely recommend Hireaband and Arcadia 5. It was the most stress free aspect of the wedding planning! Thank you!
Hi, we would just like to say a huge thank you for the superb entertainment on our Wedding Night. The feedback has been excellent from all the guests and you definitely made the night. No doubt I will be coming to see you again soon. Thanks again!
We watched Arcadia 5 on a few occasions before finally approaching them and were delighted when they agreed to play at our wedding. We shopped around quite a bit beforehand (as you do) and while some bands offered cheaper quotes, many were a lot more expensive but for us none were able to offer us anything close to the show supplied by Arcadia 5. It was like having two completely different bands for the price of one. The Irish music got everyone right in the party mood and the rock and pop songs had the dance-floor crammed. A pleasure to deal with. Thank you for helping make our big day so special.
I booked Arcadia 5 for a St Patrick's Day show plus meal at the hotel this year expecting around 120 guests to attend. We ended up having to add extra tables when 270 people turned up! It was a fabulous night. Delighted.
I cannot recommend Arcadia 5 highly enough. I booked the band for a charity fundraising event that I was organising and asked them to put together a couple of sets – one Celtic and one rock and pop. For events like that, having top quality entertainment on the bill both helps sells tickets in advance and makes a big difference on the night, putting people in a party mood and loosening their purse-strings when they’re being asked to donate a little bit more to the good cause. Arcadia 5 were fantastic. Musically, they were outstanding; more than that, they really got the room jumping and interacted brilliantly with my guests. The event was a bigger success than I expected and the band played a major role in making that happen. Book them now!
Fantastic band, dance floor was always full. Professional, patient and polite. Have already recommended to others!
The band was amazing. There is nothing else that needs to be said. Simply amazing. A fantastic day that was made ten times better by such a fantastic band. Every single person up dancing, singing and clapping. The band was incredibly understanding to our needs and pulled out all the stops at a very busy period for them and with only 2 weeks notice. We can not recommend this band highly enough. Booking this band is a sure fire way to guarantee an incredible night that no one will forget in a hurry. Thank you all so much. We had the best night of our lives.
