Need advice on hiring a world music band? Read our guide below and please get in touch if there are any questions you have.

What is a world music band?

A world music band specialises in performing traditional and contemporary music from various cultures and regions around the world. Some of the styles we represent include New Orleans, Salsa/Latin, Bavarian & Country.

What types of events are suitable for world music bands?

World music bands are versatile performers suitable for a wide range of events, including international-themed parties, weddings & corporate events. Their diverse repertoire appeals to audiences of all backgrounds and ages.

Where are your world music bands based?

Our bands are based throughout the UK, many are concentrated in the major cities such as London, Manchester, Bristol, Birmingham and Leeds. We can suggest bands that are near to you to cut down on travelling costs if you wish. However, most of our bands travel throughout the country on a regular basis.

Are your world music bands experienced?

We only represent bands and musicians who can deliver amazing performances. We represent highly gifted musicians with extensive experience performing at events throughout the UK.

How much does it cost to hire a world music band?

The cost to hire one of our world music bands can vary considerably but as a rough guide, the average price to hire a band is £2,000 – £4,000. This can increase if you are looking to hire larger, more experienced acts.

We always encourage clients to let us know a rough idea of their budget. This really helps us to focus on finding the right band for your event.

Do the bands come with their own equipment?

Our bands are fully self-contained with their own PA systems and often lighting. They usually have the capacity for average sized events (150-200 guests).

Please let us know if you are looking to hire a band for larger events. We have strong links with sound and lighting engineers to provide the equipment necessary.

How long do the world music bands play for?

Typically world music bands base their prices on 2 hours of live music. Clients can split this into 2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute sets, according to their preference.

Can I choose every song the band plays on the night?

Each band has their own (often extensive) repertoire. It is not recommended to choose every song a band plays – there really is a knack to creating a band playlist that encourages audience participation.

However, input into what the bands play is encouraged. We ask you to highlight your favourite songs and let us know any particular songs they should avoid. They can then cater their performance to your individual music preferences.

What sets you apart from other music agencies?

We stay with you from the initial booking right through to the event. We communicate with the band on your behalf, liaise with the venue and provide documentation required as well as assisting you with an itinerary for the band. Our music agency is with you every step of the way.

I am unsure which world music band to choose. Can you help?

It is natural to feel overwhelmed looking for a band to hire, especially if you have never done this before. We can help.

Please get in touch with us and let us know just a few details such as event date, type of event, expected amount of guests, budget and we can go from there.
