Top 10 Wedding Bands in London

Number 7 are one of the most experienced functions bands playing in and around Hertfordshire and are the perfect choice if you are looking for a contemporary band for your wedding, corporate event or party who can seamlessly blend different genres of music into a funky set that all of your guests can enjoy.


Whether you are aiming for a chilled and relaxed vibe or want everyone up dancing and chanting the words, we have lots of great material to help everything go perfectly for you on the night. We don’t bring tons of complicated equipment and we don’t wear spangly outfits (not a sequin in sight!) but we have all been playing since we were very little, love real music and care massively about what we do . . . so if you are looking for quality musicianship and like mixing up the ultra-modern with the timeless classics please take a closer look!




Indie | Rock | Pop | Funk | Soul

Whether you are booking for a wedding, a party or a corporate event,

we want to work with you to make sure that everything goes smoothly

and turns out exactly the way you want it.


Our professionalism and our love of what we do means that once you

have secured your booking, you can relax knowing that you can rely on

us and that we will be friendly, flexible and easy to work with in the

lead up to your special evening and on the night itself.


In the first instance, please call us to make sure that we are available

and talk to us about any special requirements that you, or your chosen

venue, might have.  If you need an early set up time, for example,

or if the venue is not used to hosting live music or has constraints

around volume levels or timings then please let us know so that we

can plan around this and use our experience to advise you whether

your ideas will work and suggest alternatives wherever possible.


Your booking is confirmed as soon as you have paid a 30% deposit to

secure that date and time.  Please note that this deposit guarantees

our commitment that we will be there and is a non-refundable.

The balancing 70% can either be paid by cheque (up to 10 days before your event), by bank transfer (up to 2 days before your event) or in cash on the evening itself (whichever suits you best).


A month before your event, please let us know if there are any of

the songs in the Playlist section of this website that you would particularly like us to include and, if it is your wedding, what the arrangements are for your first dance. Please see the further information section of this site for more details.

Come and see us

Most of the bands performances are at private events however if you

would like to see the band perform here are a few public dates. We look forward to seeing you there.




If you love good, live music we promise you a great evening for your guests....!







If you have any questions please call us

How much do we cost?


Prices for a 3-piece in Hertfordshire start at £900 for an evening function, for 2 x 1 hour sets and an hour of set up time before hand.  Special days and peak season events are a little bit more and depending on our diary,  a discount may be available Monday to Thursday and for afternoon garden parties and barbeques.  If you need us to go further afield, or to set up early, this is available for a small additional charge.  For a precise quote, please call Bob Halford on 0800 328 7199.


Planning a large event?


Our 4-piece option includes an extra guitarist to fill out the sound for

a bigger crowd.  Prices for a 4-piece start at £1,200.


The Line-up


•    Bob Halford - Lead Vocals & Guitar (Electric & Acoustic)

•    Toby Newcombe - Bass

•    Gareth Grover - Drums


Plus if you choose our 4 piece option

•    Drew Lowe (Electric Guitar)


The Format


Our standard show is 2 x 1 hour sets with a break in between.

However, if a longer play time of 3 x 45 minutes would suit you better,

lets us know and we can happily do this for a small additional cost.


FREE Music when the band is not playing!


We can supply music in between our performances at no extra cost or

(and this may work better as it will be personal to you) are happy to play a mix that you have compiled on our equipment.  This will save you the expense of a DJ if you don’t feel that you need an interactive, separate service for this aspect of your event. Equally, if you would like one of us to stay after we have finished so that you can continue to enjoy recorded music on our equipment for a while longer, we are happy to do this for a small additional charge per hour.

Your First Dance song


If your chosen song is something that we believe that we can do well,

we would love to perform your first dance for you.  We know many of the

classics and are happy to consider learning a new piece if we think it will

translate well to a live performance – please just let us know at time of

booking what you are planning.  Equally, if you don’t have a special tune,

we would be happy to suggest some of our favourites for you to consider.




Being 3-piece we can fit into almost any space you can reasonably imagine! A stage is ideal but by no means a ‘must have’.  If your event is in a marquee, large garden or other outside space please talk to us about the power supply we need and remember we need to have cover available in case of rain as our equipment doesn’t mix well with water!


As you would expect, we have Public Liability Insurance and all of our

equipment is PAT tested and so if your venue requires details of this,

please just let us know.


How reliable are we?


Once you have booked us, you can rely on us.  In the extremely unlikely

event that one of us is too ill to play, we have backup musicians available.

If it is Bob who is ill – and this has only happened once in the last 5 years - we will let you know in advance that a different singer will be performing.


What if I have to cancel?


We understand that things don’t always go to plan and sometimes events need to be rearranged or cancelled.  Whilst your deposit is

non-refundable, we will happily put the deposit that you have paid towards another booking if your event goes ahead on a different date provided that we are available on that new date.
