Wedding Band in Exeter

Professional Live Band & Free DJ!

Exeter wedding venue live entertainment band

Wow! For a population of less than 130,000, Exeter is definitely punching above its’ weight – Exeter Castle. Pynes House. Buckerell Lodge Hotel. Reed Hall. Hotel du Vin Exeter. The Devon Hotel. How many top quality amazing wedding and function band does this city need, anyway? You lucky people. While brides and grooms in some cities have to host their wedding receptions outside their area, if you’re holding your wedding reception (or birthday party / business function), you’re spoilt for choice.

The same cannot be necessarily said for live wedding and party entertainment however. Yes, Exeter does have a thriving live music scene, but for your big day, you should really be thinking of entrusting the live entertainment component to a professional band, not pub-style amateur bands. Each year HARD TO HANDLE BAND receives last minute phone calls from wedding couples who hired their friends’ band or an outfit they saw at a local pub for their wedding reception, only to discover that they’ve taken another booking elsewhere or have split up. And you really don’t want to be in that situation, do you?

Professional Wedding Band in Exeter

Hiring a professional band such as HARD TO HANDLE is a much better option. Professional bands liaise with yourself and the venue well in advance to confirm logistical aspects such as timings, where to set up and song requests. On the day, a professional band will arrive in plenty of time, set up quickly, and it goes without saying that the style of music played by professional bands who perform regularly at wedding receptions will be appropriate for all of your guests. However, do a little online research and you’ll probably find out that there is a serious cash outlay for these bands.

The good news is that HARD TO HANDLE are a little different to other professional bands! We formed because we knew that there are lots of wedding couples and others planning a party or function who would love to create a truly memorable nights’ entertainment for their guests but don’t necessarily have the budget (or available space) to hire a large events band.  So, we’re a three piece band, which means that we are a lot more cost effective. Our sound is just as full as a large band, and we have a massive playlist music from the 1960s to the modern charts – but because we encourage your guests to submit songs requests, we just play the music you want to hear. It’s a great way to ensure a full dance floor, all night.  

Oh, and there’s no need to hire a DJ to play during the bands’ breaks – we provide a DJ FREE OF CHARGE with every booking! HARD TO HANDLE BAND take care of it all:

  • Professional, versatile, affordable band
  • 350+ song playlist
  • Rock, indie, pop, soul and more
  • Choose your favourite songs
  • Sound system and lights provided
  • 2 hours of band music + free DJ
  • Full dancefloor!
