Some FAQs About Hiring an R&B Band for Your Wedding or Party...
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What does an R&B wedding band perform?

The R&B wedding bands on FixTheMusic play a variety of music in this style featuring a range of artists including Kanye West, Bruno Mars, R Kelly, Justin Timberlake and Ceelo Green. Most R&B cover and tribute bands will also include in their set list songs from other styles of music as well as R n B, including hip hop, garage, pop, rock, soul and Motown. You might also be looking for an urban wedding band – perfect for cool city weddings.

Can you also provide garage wedding bands?

The UK is home to many wedding bands that specialise in garage music. The Young Bucks, for example, have an incredible garage medley that features Do You Really Like It? (British garage music group DJ Pied Piper and the Masters of Ceremonies), Re-Rewind (The Crowd Say Bo Selecta) by Artful Dodger, featuring Craig David on vocals, Movin' Too Fast, Gotta Get Thru This, 21 Seconds (So Solid Crew) – all combined with their trademark rapping and reggae fusion. So if you're looking for a UK garage wedding band, get in touch!

How much does an R&B / hip hop wedding band cost to hire?

The average price of an R&B wedding band for hire on FixTheMusic is £1,685 for 2020. R&B bands tend to cost more than the average UK wedding band as they often feature more instruments and vocalists than a regular pop covers band so that they can cover the full range of R&B and soul hits.

Should I hire an R&B band for my wedding?

Yes! We've noticed a big trend in recent years for discerning clients to choose an R&B wedding band for their big day. The UK's best R&B bands are made up of some of the most in-demand session musicians and singers in the country, who have often toured with celebrity singers across Europe and the rest of the world. Booking an R&B band or hip hop band for your own wedding is guaranteed to ensure a cool edge that most other bands can't provide. At FixTheMusic we have some of the UK's best hip hop bands for hire, as well as specialist RnB groups.

Why have RnB wedding bands become so popular in recent years?

Couples these days are looking for something a bit different to the tried-and-tested wedding covers band of recent years. Couples getting married in their early 30s were children of the 90s, so they want music that reflects their personal music tastes, be that 90s kitsch pop such as Britney Spears and various boy bands, to Britpop, Garage, Hip Hop and American heavy metal such as Greenday, Metallica and Guns N' Roses, as well as RnB covers.

How long do the R&B bands perform for?

As is standard for wedding or corporate entertainment, most live RnB bands will provide around 2 hours of live music. This is often split into 2 x 60 minute sets, or 3 x 40 minute sets. The bands will provide background music (a "laptop DJ service") in between the live music. Most bands arrive at the venue at around 5pm and expect to finish by 12 midnight.

Is it possible to see the RnB bands perform live before I book?

It's often not possible to see the RnB bands perform live before you book them for your wedding or event. Most professional wedding bands rarely perform at public gigs, as most of their bookings are at private events such as weddings and corporate events. It is possible from time to time though, so feel free to ask your band and they'll let you know if they have any public gigs coming up.

Will an RnB band be suitable for my wedding?

RnB bands bring a unique flavour to wedding receptions. Their size usually means they provide a visual spectacle to the evening's entertainment. And the range of songs covered by such bands (from soul to pop, funk and maybe even some rock), means there is usually something for each of your wedding guests. Of course, couples will want guests of all ages to enjoy the wedding music, so bands that specialise in 90s genres (90s wedding bands) generally also perform some classic covers from the 50s to the 80s. Some of our RnB / hip hop wedding bands also feature rappers or singers who can rap – the perfect addition to a live band.
