That tradition of creating famous names in the UK music business has led to a specific new talent seen in many bands in the capital who provide excellent cover versions of songs and acts at weddings, parties, corporate events and the good old-fashioned company knees-up at the end of the year. So what about if you want to hire a covers band for a private function? Where do you start and what do London bands have to offer? Read on..
Huge range of London function bands
For special events there are a huge range of London function bands available. Of course the quality and performance of these bands varies greatly but because the UK capital feeds the popular music scene there tends to be more bands that are professional acts of a high calibre than not. Many bands are drawn to London to further their musical careers and there’s no doubt they’re serious about music. Many set up as London bands creating cover versions of songs which have been hits for the top names in the business and in their efforts to perfect their acts they also find it a great way to develop as musicians.
All this of course is great for news for those looking to hire a band as the choice and variety of bands in the capital today is massive. London bands performing cover songs tend to start in local pubs and clubs, often playing for free or next to nothing. It’s all a case of trying to build up a following but, once established, these London bands can demand higher fees for private function gigs or when live bands appear on the public performance circuit.
