Light up your wedding day with the fantastic The Lion Men who bring the rustic, agrarian pastoral Mumford sound to your wedding that is perfect for tipi and barn weddings. Immensely fun with some of the most promising musicians in the country, The Lion Men delve into a set list featuring the likes of Mumford & Sons, Blink 182, James Bay, Blur and much more, The Lion Men will get the dance floor packed all night long!

“A band can make or break a wedding reception, The Lion Men definitely made ours!! The dance floor was full all night and we had so many compliments after the day about how good the band were. Friends have even asked about them for their weddings too. Chris was also great and came up earlier on the day to set up so we could have music playing during the wedding breakfast. Helpful as well as entertaining. Can’t fault them, brilliant!”

From the start your enquiry will be dealt with by leading entertainment agency Tailored Entertainment. Tailored Entertainment specialise in exclusive representation of the best professional function bands in the UK and have a very select roster of top bands. So you can be reassured from the off that the band have met the high standards Tailored Entertainment demands of its acts and that you'll also have an expert team on hand to help with all of the planning and any questions you may have. The guys at Tailored Entertainment are available on 0800 564 2240 / info@lion-men-band.co.uk and will be very happy to hear from you.


Once you have decided that The Lion Men are the band for you, Tailored Entertainment will send a booking contract to you to confirm the booking. The contract features all the important details for the day and once you have signed, the band will sign a copy and confirm the booking in their diary. We ask for a deposit to secure the booking, with the balance payable by bank transfer seven days ahead of the day.


In the lead up to the wedding you are very welcome to contact us any time to discuss the plan for the day. Around four weeks before the day the experienced team at Tailored Entertainment will contact you to go over the final details - timings, first dance, song requests for the disco or DJ, final payment details etc. All of the details will be recorded and sent to the band in one simple final confirmation email, so you can be sure nothing will get missed and everything discussed will happen as planned on the night.


The Lion Men will arrive fully self-contained with PA, lighting and pre-mixed disco (or a band member can DJ if you add this to your booking) and will perform 2 hours of live music (2 x 60 or 3 x 40 minute live sets). The band will cover your whole evening of entertainment so you don't need to hire a separate DJ or any additional equipment.

If your evening reception is in the same room as the meal/speeches, the band would usually arrive to set up in the turnaround time between day and evening. If the room or area for your evening is separate (or curtained off) the band could arrive while you are eating to get set up (they would sound check when suitable and wouldn't interrupt the meal or speeches!) - it takes a minimum of 90 minutes for the band to get fully set up and sound checked.

A guide to a standard evening reception would be:

  • 17:30 - Band Arrive
  • 19:00 - Background Music On
  • 20:00 - First Dance/First Set (60 mins)
  • 21:00 - Disco/DJ (ideal time for evening buffet)
  • 22:00 - Second Set (60 mins)
  • 23:00 - Disco/DJ Until Close

Timings are flexible to suit your needs and live sets can be split 3 x 40 mins if you prefer.The standard price for The Lion Men is based on them arriving at 17:00 earliest and finishing as late as 00:00. For an early arrival or late finish outside of these times, there is an additional charge.

The band are very happy to perform your choice of first dance for you as long as they have at least three weeks notice of the song choice.

The Lion Men also offer a brilliant live lounge-style acoustic set, this is the perfect addition to your drinks reception and can really help set the mood for a great celebration. As the musicians are already booked to perform in the evening, the price of this set represents excellent value when compared to hiring a separate band for your daytime entertainment - it can be as much as 50% cheaper than hiring an equivalent act.

To discuss hiring The Lion Men to perform at your wedding please call Tailored Entertainment for a friendly chat on 0800 564 2240 or email info@lion-men-band.co.uk.

The Lion Men are based in London and available to hire in the South East area including Sussex, Kent, Essex, Hampshire, Berkshire as well as the South West such as Bristol, Southampton, Gloucestershire, Cotswolds plus the Midlands, CambridgeshireEast Anglia, Suffolk as well as further afield in the UK and internationally.

Wedding, The Clock Barn, Whitchurch
We were incredibly satisfied with the band performing at our wedding on Saturday, our guests approached us many times to comment on the fantastic performance they put on and we thought their choice of songs, mixes and transitions were all outstanding. The band were also brilliant to work with approaching the wedding, particularly with our first dance request which had some specific features, these were executed perfectly and the band helped us to feel at ease throughout. We even had a few last minute timing changes on the day and the guys adapted brilliantly which ensured we felt comfortable as the music portion of the day approached!

Wedding, Private Address, Somerset
A top quality band, the Lion Men produced an engaging and popular set for our wedding guests, who demanded encores. So many people commented at the event and afterwards on how good the band were. From set up to leaving the site, these guys were professional and focused on everyone enjoying the show. Before the wedding, Chris provided lots of useful information and produced playlists from a wide range of guest requests. Highly recommend.
