Live Wedding Band

Nestled in the idyllic rural surrounds of North Somerset, Coombe Lodge is no stranger to the sounds of Hard to Handle band. Each year we are chosen to perform there by so many brides and grooms, we may as well set up camp in its’ grounds!

For weddings, it’s a winning combination – a superb venue and a great live band . Our most recent performance at Coombe Lodge was for Neil and Emma, who were hosting a relatively small and intimate wedding reception for around 130 guests. Whereas some bands shy away from the demands of performing to small functions such as these, we love being able to get everyone on the dance floor.

We performed around two hours of live music, and in between and afterwards, guests enjoyed a broad mix of DJ-style music, provided by ourselves (free of charge, naturally). And despite the chilly weather outside, temperatures inside were soaring – that’s what happens when a professional band get all 130 people on the dance floor.

So, what did Neil and Emma (photo courtesy of have to say about hiring Hard to Handle band? We’re glad you asked:

“We just wanted to say thank you so much for playing at our wedding! Everyone thought you were amazing and kept asking where we found you. It was brilliant to have so many people up on the dance floor for the whole time and your professional service meant we didn’t have to worry about a thing and could just enjoy the celebrations! We will certainly recommend you to others.” Emma and Neil, January 2014
