If you’re looking for a rock band London, you’ve come to the right place. Sensation Band know all too well that while some like to swing, others like to sing. Some love pitch perfect pop, others just want to get down at the disco. And some… well some just need to ROCK!
Rock is a genre of music that to some is little short of a religion. If it doesn’t have at least a couple of guitars, some very loud drums and wailing vocals, what is actually the point? If you’re looking for the perfect rock band for your event, party or festival, Sensation Band bring you the UK’s hottest musicians, ready to get your party rocking all night long.
What is rock?
Rock has its roots in the 1950’s rock and roll. Although some Metallica fans would probably prefer it wasn’t mentioned, it was actually the rockin’ and rollin’ of the likes of Elvis, Buddy Holly and Fats Domino that gave rise to this entire genre of music.
As time moved on and faces changed, we saw the likes of Cliff Richard and Carole King putting a spot of polish on the early rock and roll scene, inserting close harmonies and more complex instrumentals into the mix. Around this time we also saw the rise of ‘surf rock’, with bands like the Beach Boys and The Dakotas leading the hit parade.
But it was the Brits who really turned this genre into what we know it to be today. The legendary Beatles, along with The Searchers, Gerry and the Pacemakers and Herman’s Hermits led the British Invasion and set the tone for modern rock music with a plethora of timelessly popular songs.
Today rock has diversified into such an eclectic mix of styles it is hard to pick out the old influences from the incredible new sounds, and those who purport to be ‘into rock music’ could be fans of anything from Slipknot to Owl City. So much music can be lumped into the ‘rock’ category, it’s impossible to define it clearly any more.
One thing is for sure; whether you love pop rock from the 90’s, glam rock from the 80’s, electronic rock from the noughties or pure hard rock, Sensation Band have a winning formula to create the perfect sound for you.
