Live wedding bands and acts for hire in the North East.


The North East is a great place for live acts and we’ve noticed an increased booking level for the live wedding bands and acts for hire in the North East.

The Gotcha Band (above) are a fantastic five-piece band with extensive experience in entertaining and a wide repertoire of music to suit most musical tastes. More than just a party band, they provide superb male and female vocals backed up by excellent musicians. They play completely live without the use of backing tapes or sequencers enabling them to tailor the event to your particular requirements. To complement the live band they are able to supply a free disco, background music and announcements as required to provide a complete package of entertainment.

Mark Hodgson comes from the small historic market town of Barnard Castle in County Durham in the North East of England and has been performing professionally since June 2007 and has entertained all over the UK, from the North East of England, North Yorkshire & Cumbria, down to the Midlands, Southampton and South Wales, having entertained in Pubs, Clubs, Hotels, Casinos, Holiday Camps and Residential Homes, receiving rave reviews wherever he goes,with his audience friendly banter and participation. He is regularly booked for Presentation Nights,Charity Events, Weddings, Anniversaries and Birthdays and now with the added addition of a fantastic lightshow he can also provide a disco as well to cover your whole nights entertainment.


Unplugged (right) are an acoustic pop/rock duo that perform a wide range of popular covers from 60’s classics to current chart hits. With a wealth of experience ranging from pubs/bars through to Corporate Events, Private Parties and Weddings they can always tailor their performance to the needs of the event. Their acoustic ‘live lounge’ sound is perfect for wedding ceremonies, pre reception drinks and early evening as a precursor to a disco/DJ.

The Dean Solomon Band are one of the top North East Wedding and Function Bands providing live entertainment for events across North East England, Co. Durham, and North Yorkshire. They’ll keep the dance floor packed all night and entertain ALL your guests with their huge repertoire of swing, rockabilly, pop and rock music from the 1950s to the present day. Because of the wide age range of guests at most weddings, you need a live band who can perform an equally wide range of material. The Dean Solomon Band does just that, moving seamlessly through music to entertain 3 or 4 generations, ensuring no one is left out.
