The Wild Ponies

"The Wild Ponies really made our evening. The band were flawless and the set list was awesome! My guests loved it and so did we!"

The Wild Ponies have been performing at weddings, parties and events all over the UK and Europe for years, and it's this experience and talent that means you're in safe hands when you book the band for your event.


Their three-piece set up means The Wild Ponies are well suited to a smaller space; but they manage to have a full sound which won’t disappoint or get lost in a larger venue. With male vocals, guitar, bass and drums – they are a compact version of a standard 4-piece band – all the punch and energy, at a reduced price! You can’t go wrong. 

Each of the three members of The Wild Ponies is a professional musician with a fantastic knowledge of music throughout the decades and great understanding of what really gets the dance-floor full at a variety of events.

The band perform 2 x 45-minute sets as standard, complete with complimentary unmanned iPod DJ when not playing live - this is reflected in the automatic quote you receive when you enquire through our website. However, they also offer add-ons, including a manned DJ service and a sax player who plays one set with the live band and one with the DJ - perfect for that Ibiza summer vibe! They can also add on female vocals to expand their sound.

The band offer a daytime acoustic duo add-on option for drinks receptions or wedding breakfast or your ceremony - this is an acoustic guitar with male vocals, and a Cajon drum. With this option you have your full day's music sorted all in one package!

If you have specific requirements, feel free to add them in the comments section when you enquire, and we will get back to you with a bespoke quote.

Always friendly, professional and reliable, The Wild Ponies will be put in contact with you in advance of your day to discuss requests and logistics. They are also used to liaising with wedding planners, venue contacts and managers, so you can focus on enjoying your day without worrying!

The Wild Ponies treat every event as if it was their own party and you'll find them easy to deal with, flexible and friendly. All you need to provide is the venue and the guests, and they will take care of the rest for you, providing a comprehensive evening of entertainment.

Enquire now or add this band to your shortlist, and make sure your event is memorable for all the right reasons!

The Wild Ponies

We loved our wedding band, The Wild Ponies, found through Hireaband. They sounded great, with a brilliant setlist that had everyone dancing, with lots of great comments from guests. The comms leading up to the event was fantastic, asking for any particular songs to play or avoid. Thanks also for DJ'ing until the end of the night, was a great way to finish a great day. Thank you.

The Wild Ponies performed at our wedding in Bordeaux, France recently. Mike, Brad and Neil were fantastic – their performances were great and a real highlight of the weekend. With the wedding being abroad, we were concerned about logistics but their planning and professionalism gave us confidence from day one. Our guests were very impressed with them and they had everyone up dancing. They were really friendly and happy to discuss facilitate our requirements for the weekend. Thanks guys!
