Portofino is one of the most popular locations for destination weddings, and for good reason. Its impressive pastel-coloured houses and high-end boutiques, the world-class cuisine and art scene, and many luxury wedding venues are just some of the factors that make Portofino such a hotspot for tying the knot.

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

In general, couples who head to Portofino 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).
