If you've never booked a Wedding Band before, it can be a stressful experience.

However, with The Pedal Tones, you can be assured you've found a party band that will keep you and your guests happy, with a full dancefloor all night long! 

We've got different band sizes for every occasion, as well as more specialist folk band lineups if you're looking for something different for your evening's entertainment. Just check out reviews from our lovely past clients!

The Pedal Tones played our wedding in September 2023, they did both an acoustic set for our drinks reception and three evening sets for all of our guests. What can we say... the acoustic set was out of this world, perfect for our venue and guests and the song selections were impeccable!

The evening sets were the most fun we've ever had at any wedding, let alone our own! Thank you lads for making the score for our wedding perfect and helping everyone have the best time imaginable! Thanks so much!

If you want a band that's not just about the music but creating an epic experience, The Pedal Tones are your go-to. Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without them – they turned it into a bash we'll be talking about for years. Huge thanks for making our day extraordinary! 🌟🎶💕

Our smallest lineup, but a big sound - our 3 piece bands are a great way to get the night started with a bang. Contains all the PA, lighting and tunes that you need to get the party started!

This lineup is flexible with sound limiters, as we can easily swap the normal drum kit for an electric one - meaning we can work at almost any East Midlands venue that has a sound limiter.

Bigger band, bigger sound, bigger sets. This really is the ultimate Pedal Tones experience. Our 4 piece bands provide up to 3 x 40 minute sets of non-stop anthems to get your guests on the dancefloor.

Expect mashups, medleys, Rock and Pop and all manner of your favourite songs for all ages!


Our folk bands offer something different if you're looking for something special for your event.

With Mumford and Sons classics mixed in with folk inspired covers of your favourite songs - plus everything else that our other lineups offer - this is a great way to stand out from the rest.

We can provide folk-style music all night long- or we can just start the early evening with the folk style covers and then transition into the classic look later on - the choice is yours! 

This lineup is also perfectly suited to sound limiters as we can adapt almost anything about it to meet the requirements of most East Midlands venues.


We understand every wedding is different, so we can help tailor our packages for whatever you've got in mind for your special day. Looking for something extra? We've also got a wide range of add-ons for both the daytime and the evening - just mention this when asking for a quote.


We bring together collective decades of Wedding Music experience. Whether you need help planning out the tunes, or suggestions for timings, we're here to help. We've also got blog articles with help and advice, too.

One of the most important things when hiring a band is making sure that they play the kind of music you and your guests will like. Check out our repetoire to make sure your favourite songs are covered. We believe good wedding bands should play a wide range and variety to suit all the different ages that will be at a wedding, including Soul and Motown, Indie, Pop, Rock and R'n'B to make sure there's something for every guest.

The Pedal Tones contain some of the best musicians in Derbyshire. We dress like your favourite indie rock band - but play tunes from all eras.


Whenever we take to the stage with any of our lineups, we have one objective in mind - a full dancefloor! 

But what happens when we're not on stage? Don't worry - we've got you covered with our free playlist servive - included with every lineup. This means we'll take care of the background music before we play, in between our sets and up till 12 midnight (later finishes are available.) We've got tried and tested playlists that we can use - or feel free to send across your own in advance of the day!

Years of experience at Weddings means we're also happy to take care of announcements throughout your evening too - if you haven't got a toastmaster or master of ceremonies sorted already!

Side note: If you've got someone to take care of these things for you - don't worry - they're more than welcome to use our microphones if needed, just let us know in advance!

You also have the option to upgrade to a manned playlist service, meaning they'll be a band member on hand to take requests from guests all night and keep an eye on the dancefloor. This really makes for a fully comprehensive package, meaning it makes one of the best wedding music experiences Derbyshire has to offer! 

We've got a wide variety of DJs to call on if you're looking for some recommendations, too. Let us know, or check out our friends page for more information (as well as some recommendations for other awesome suppliers!)

When searching for your wedding band, you want to make sure they've got the right tunes for you and your guests. You'll probably also want to know how the entertainment will run throughout the evening, and how the band will make sure you and your guests have the best time!

This is why we include our full and up to date repetoire on our website for you to browse through, making sure we've got your favourite songs covered. As an experienced band, we think function bands should be able to perform a wide variety of tunes to cater to the different ages that will be present at a wedding. 

Weddings are all about love, partying and positivity - and we want to make sure your guests are grinning from ear to ear when they hear their favourite songs - played by a live band in Derbyshire.

We bring every bit of energy and love to every performance we do and love going the extra mile for every couple! We've been lucky enough to have had some very kind words said about us from happy clients up and down the country - check them out here.

We often get requested to play a first dance, live as a band, for our couples. This is an honour and one of our favourite things to do, as it's such as special moment! 

We're happy to learn your first dance for no extra charge with any of our lineups - as long as we have enough notice to learn it and it suits a live performance. We've played literally 100s of first dances over the years, and we've got some suggestions in this article.

Totally in love with the original version of your first dance? No problem! We can get it downloaded, gather everyone round and play it through our speakers, and then kick the party off when you've had your special moment together!

You're more than welcome to have as many requests for the playlist service in advance of the night. As an added bonus, if we're not playing your first dance as a live band, we're happy to learn a special song for the occasion instead - whether it's a must have party tune, or a special song to get you and your friends and family together one last time on the dancefloor before the night finishes.
