Greece is one of the most popular locations in Europe for destination weddings, and for good reason. The historic and vibrant cities of Athens and Thessaloniki, the beautiful Mediterranean islands and world-famous cuisine, are just some of the factors that make Greece such a hotspot for tying the knot, especially with British and American couples.

When it comes to hiring a live wedding band in Greece, it can be difficult to find exactly what you want for your special day.

In general, couples who head to Greece for a destination wedding want a band that plays covers of British and American pop, rock and indie music (as well as some funk and soul thrown in for good measure). As such, British wedding bands are increasingly in demand to make the journey to entertain at destination weddings in Greece.

Due to the demand for British cover bands to entertain at Greece weddings, some have relocated to the country permanently – for example, one of our bands who plays a mix of pop, rock and indie covers, consists of British musicians from London but they are now based in Greece where they entertain at weddings and parties throughout continental Europe.

Several of FixTheMusic’s UK-based wedding bands are proving popular for destination weddings in the region. Of course, travel expenses mean that it can cost roughly double the price of hiring these bands to perform in the UK.

We also have an increasing number of local Greece-based bands that are generally much cheaper than hiring an English wedding band.

Kudos is our most popular Greek band. Based in Athens, they play a wide range of musical genres (including pop, rock, hip hop, RnB) that is highly popular at international weddings in Greece.
