Live entertainment ideas, brilliant bands and superb acts to hire based in and around Manchester.

The essentials of good entertainment are reliability, flexibility, an understanding of volume, approachability, experience, energy and enthusiasm! 

If finding a band in Manchester that matches all of these criteria seems like a tall order, don't worry. There is an almost foolproof method available to you. If you want to make sure that the wedding bands you're considering tick all of the boxes, contact your local entertainment agency. Gaye Young and her team looks after our clients in this area and only works with and represents bands that know what they're doing and fit the bill.  Why not give her a call on 0161 731 0164 for a free, friendly and no obligation chat about your requirements.

Gaye and her team have done all the hard work of selecting the best bands in and around Manchester, Stockport and Oldham so that you don't have to.

The advice that Gaye provides is free and our bands have all been through a very vigorous selection process. Our acts don't pay to be here; inclusion on the hireaband web site is strictly by invitation only. 

If you're looking specifically for a band to play at your wedding, then go straight over to our Wedding Bands Manchester page.

Take your time and browse the site for the very best live entertainment in Manchester. It's free to use as often as you like. Oh! and one last thing, it won't cost you a penny more to hire a band through us than it would direct because we never mark up band prices - ever!
