The Fanatics At Your Wedding

“You should book this band for your wedding. They rock. They are Hot. They get the party started."

“Even a couple of months on, our guests and ourselves are still raving about you guys!"

"We'd been looking for ages for a band to play at our wedding but as a young couple, found the usual 'wedding bands' so cheesy... We were close to giving up, then we found The Fanatics…”

Carving a reputation as one of the best party acts around, The Fanatics are the band of choice for around 40 weddings every year. We understand that creating an unforgettable experience is a crucial part of your big day. Our aim is to make planning your entertainment as easy and stress free as possible.

Questions or concerns

From the moment you decide we’re the right band for you, your entertainment is in good hands. We’ll be in touch around 3 weeks before the big day to finalise the details, timings, song choices and any other queries you may have. In the run up to your wedding, you’ll also have a dedicated event coordinator from our agency, Alive Network. They will be more than happy to liaise with you on any additional issues, questions or concerns.

At Your Wedding

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

After we’ve set up and sound checked, we will arrange background music to warm up your guests before our first set. All we need is a secure changing room (not the toilets!), which should be arranged between you and the venue. Our 'rider' is simple and the standard for any band – just a hot/cold meal and soft drinks.

1st live set

Our first live set usually lasts around 60 minutes. Afterwards, we'll take a break – this is the ideal opportunity to serve any food. During this time, we'll play carefully chosen background music to keep the party flowing. If you choose our DJ upgrade option, a member of the band will run the DJ rig and be on hand to take requests and make announcements.

First Dance

We will liaise with you or the event manager at your venue to confirm the timing of your first dance, and will be ready to DJ your chosen track or perform it (if arranged in advance). We also appreciate that schedules often slip on the day. Our experience means we can take any adjustments in our stride.

2nd live set & end of the night

After our second live performance, we will provide background music or pre-arranged DJ service to bring the evening to the perfect close. After the agreed finish time, we will we pack down our equipment as quickly and discretely as possible. This usually takes under an hour.


For ten years we've been providing live music for countless satisfied couples. We are proud of the service we offer, but don’t just take our word for it. Take a look at our recent testimonials below.
