Because of the sheer number of Wedding Bands, it can be really stressful trying to find the right fit for your big day.

Weddings involve a huge range of different ages and music tastes. That's why it's important to find a band that understands this - and can keep your dancefloor full! 

Here at The Pedal Tones, we know what music to play to keep you and your guests happy, whether it's our 3 piece bands, 4 piece bands or folk bands.

Rest easy with us knowing you've found a wedding band that will aim to keep your dancefloor full all night long!

We LOVED having The Pedal Tones play at our wedding - live music is so important to us so we knew a live band was a must have when we were planning our wedding and the guys absolutely smashed it!
From accommodating our request for the first dance (we’ll always remember that moment of quiet before the drop into not nineteen forever!) to sorting out all requests we wanted for in-between sets you absolutely smashed it!
Our guests have all said how amazing you were - thank you so so much again!

The Pedal Tones absolutely rocked the reception at our wedding at the end of September- the dance floor was never empty and filled with people of all ages and with different music tastes! Everything was so smooth from the first day I contacted them and they really know what they are doing. They are such lovely guys and agreed to a very last minute change of finishing time and even let my sister use their sound system to DJ between sets. I can't recommend them enough.

The Pedal Tones were absolutely amazing at our wedding. They kept the energy going all night and the dance floor was always filled! A great range of music and would recommend them to anyone looking for an event band!

Manchester Wedding Music


Looking for an awesome way to kick off your Wedding reception with some live music? You've come to the right place!

With collective decades of experience since founding in 2018, The Pedal Tones were formed with one simple goal - playing great music for happy couples at Weddings. Since then, we've literally played 100s of weddings all across Manchester and the rest of the UK. 

We count ourselves lucky as well as honoured to play some incredible venues across Manchester and it's surrounding areas, such as Whitworth Locke, Manchester Hall, Victoria Warehouse, Manchester Science and Industry Musuem, The Stanneylands and Styal Lodge.

Create a night you and your guests won't forget with one of the best Manchester Wedding Bands!

Wedding Entertainment and Bands in Manchester


Fully self contained, our 3 piece wedding bands are the ideal way to get your reception started. They include all of the PA, lighting and energy you need to get the party started! 

This lineup can also swap out the normal drumkit to make it a sound limiter friendly lineup with an electric drumkit. This means we can comply with most noise restrictions at any Manchester venues.


Combining mashups, medleys, indie favourites as well as Soul and Motown Classics, our 4 piece bands are the ultimate party option. And with the longer set options of 3 x 40 minutes, the party is spread even longer throughout the night.

This is our most commonly booked lineup.


Our folk bands offer a slightly different kind of entertainment for your evening's reception. Your favourite Mumford and Sons anthems are mixed in with folk inspired covers of your most loved party hits.

This lineup can also provide one set of the folk lineup and then provide the more electric lineup later on in the evening - the choice is yours.

Designed to be sound limiter friendly if needed, this lineup can accomodate almost any Manchester venue.


The Pedal Tones were formed with the mission of keeping your dancefloor full all night, with you and your guests singing along to their favourite party hits.

And to save you hiring a DJ separately (knowing how important wedding budgets are!) all of our lineups include a free playlist service, meaning we'll provide background music before we play, in between our sets and finishing up the night at 12 midnight (Later finishes are available, too)

We're experienced hosts, too. We can take care of any annoucements throughout the evening such as the cutting of the cake or annoucing you into your first dance, if you don't have a dedicated Toastmaster or Master of Ceremonies.

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 the playlist service to a manned service, meaning there's a band member around to take requests from guests all night, as well as keep an eye on the dancefloor. This makes for the ultimate evening package, making it one of the best wedding band packages Manchester 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!)

We know every Wedding is different, so we can tailor or adapt any of our packages to suit your special day. Just let us know and we'll sort this out when quoting. We've got a wide range of add-ons as mentioned previously, meaning we can expand what we offer into the daytime, too.


Our experience in the industry means we're happy to help and advise with any part of the entertainment booking process. Just ask, and we can provide suggestions, help and advise for the different parts of your day - we've played a lot of venues across Manchester and are happy to give advice! Have a look through our handy articles if you need some more advice, too!


When hiring a Wedding Band, it's important to feel confident that they'll play songs that you and your guests will want to dance to. We do our best to keep our repetoire up to date - check it out and make sure we've got your favourite songs covered. There's a huge range of ages to keep happy at a wedding, so we include a mix of pop, indie, soul and motown and rock classics to keep you and your guests happy! 

Whilst we dress like an indie rock band - our sets are varied and include songs that all ages will love.

We get a lot of requests to play couples' first dances live. This is something we consider an honour, and we love providing the soundtrack for this special moment! We will happily learn your first dance to perform live, as long as it will work with our various lineups for no extra cost.

Side note - if you're looking for some inspiration, why not check out this blog post with some first dance ideas?

Really set on the original version of your first dance? Don't worry! We'll get this downloaded and play it through our speakers instead. We can get everyone gathered round you for this special moment, and we commonly kick into a set right after your first dance!

You can send across as many songs as you'd like in advance for the free playlist service in between sets, too. As an added bonus, if we're not playing your first dance live, we're more than happy to learn a special request instead - whether it's a song for you and your family and friends to sing along to one last time at the end of the night, or a must have party song that everyone loves!

Acoustic Duos

Looking to add some live music to the daytime of your wedding, too? We'd love to get involved with our acoustic duos. We love setting the perfect background for your drinks reception or wedding breakfast - and we can provide up to 90 minutes of tunes to serenade you and your guests.

Also included for this part of the day is our free playlist service - meaning we'll take care of the music whenever we're not on stage. Again, you can send us your own pre-selected playlists, or we can use our own tried and tested playlists.

If your venue doesn't have an in-built sound system, we're also happy to lend you microphones for the speeches if you choose to book the acoustic duo too. Just let us know and we can get you setup and ready to go after we've finished our sets!
