Congratulations! You're having a party, wedding or event and you want the finest live entertainment to help you celebrate.  Here are some useful things you need to know.


Probably by now you've flicked through the wedding journals and been to a few wedding fairs or you may have surfed the net and noticed the vast number of band and agency web sites that exist today. Maybe you've talked to a few bands and entertainers and it's likely that every one of them has told you they're the best, top, most in demand, favourite band/entertainer in the known Universe! It's human nature and entirely understandable, but who to believe, who to book? Wouldn't it be great to have an expert in the field who has knowledge of the entire industry, that can give you an independent, unbiased opinion based on previous performance and volumes of customer feedback? Well now you can.

Since 1999 we've been working with the hospitality industry, private clients, large corporations and thousands of engaged couples, helping them find and book the best possible entertainers.

Hireaband are unique in that we have our very own team of wedding specialists; Gaye Young, Karen Cunningham, Rachel Cotton and Libbi Mattick . They spend every day helping future brides, grooms (and "in laws" for that matter!) find the best entertainers available for their big day. From the ceremony itself, pre-reception entertainment and the evening reception our staff have unsurpassed access to the cream of wedding entertainers to suit any budget.

We also have an experienced team of corporate entertainment experts in Del Cotton, Irving Walker and Lisa Cotton. With offices in London and near Glasgow in Scotland, you're never too far away form the free expert advice that we've become famous for.

At hireaband we specialise in entertainment only. We don't know a thing about flowers, decor, cars, photo-booths, chocolate fountains etc. All we know is entertainment. We spend all of our time in this fascinating field and we like to think we're rather good at it. Fortunately so do our clients.

So what do you need to know to make selecting the best possible entertainment for your wedding or event easier? Above is a list of frequently asked questions which will hopefully ease the process.

Finally, Hireaband are full members of the Agents Association of Great Britain and as such are bound by a code of conduct governing our relationship with both clients and entertainers. For your own peace of mind only deal with members of the association. Membership requirements are very strict and not everyone can meet the high standards demanded.

We sincerely hope these points are useful to you. We would be delighted to chat with you on a one to one basis about any aspect of entertainment for your wedding. Please feel free to call our team on 0141 413 40 60 or start browsing our site and building a shortlist of acts you're interested in.
