If you need to hire a party band in Dorset then you can’t go far wrong by choosing a professional group that performs rock and pop covers from the 1950s to the present day. The reason for this is that most parties, such as Birthday celebrations, Weddings or Anniversary bashes have a wide-range of age groups in attendance – it can quite literally be 8 to 80 year olds who are looking to tear up the dance floor! So, picking a party band with a wide-ranging choice of songs will ensure that there is something for everyone to enjoy.

All of the bands for parties that we have available to book in Dorset have been vetted for quality, reliability and professionalism, which means that you can sit back and enjoy looking through the profiles with the peace of mind that whoever you hire will be more than capable of doing a fantastic job at your event.

If you need any further help or assistance please do not hesitate to contact us... but until then, enjoy listening to the musicians and bands below >>

FAQs

What Songs Do Cover Bands Play?

A cover band performing rock and pop songs is the perfect musical event entertainment for private events, such as weddings or corporate functions where you want to get your guests on the dance floor. Most cover bands perform chart hits and well-known songs from across all decades of popular music ranging from modern-day floor fillers, for example, music by Kings of Leon, The Killers, and Ed Sheeran, to timeless music by the likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, and Buddy Holly.

Cover band line-ups come in all shapes and sizes but the most popular are 3-5 piece acts, which include instrumentation such as male vocals, female vocals, both male and female vocals, guitar, bass, drums, and keyboards. Whilst there are larger line-ups available that include brass instruments the more traditional 3-5 pieces are the most frequently booked.

How Does A Cover Band Take To Set Up?

A rock and pop band for hire will almost always be hired to perform in the evening, arrive between 5pm and 6pm, and will normally take between 1 – 2 hours to unload, set-up their equipment and have a soundcheck to ensure that the levels are correct. In the case of parties or corporate events this is often done before your guests arrive, or, in the case of weddings, as the room is turned around for the evening reception. If there is no turnaround time available for the performance room then alternate arrangements, such as an earlier arrival and set-up, should be made. Your Warble coordinator will be able to help with these details. If you have a list of questions to ask a wedding venue, ensure you ask about space and room turnover for the band.

Whilst a stage is always great for a combo to perform on it is not a necessity as long as there is a solid, level space where they can set-up.

How Long Does A Covers Band Perform For?

Cover acts tend to perform 2 hours of live music and split this as either 2 x 60-minute or 3 x 40-minute sets. Whilst some function bands will offer longer or shorter performance options, these are the most popular and well-received formats.

The first set will normally start at approximately 8.30pm-9pm and they will look to wind up the live music at roughly 11.30pm. Then, with a couple of encores or some perfectly timed classic anthems through the PA sound system, the very best cover bands and wedding bands will guide you and your guests to a midnight finish. Later finishes are available but should be discussed with your Warble coordinator at the time of enquiry.

Many acts are happy to be flexible with regards to the requirements of your event so please just let us know and we can make suitable arrangements to ensure everything is perfect! Of course, you might hire local cover bands or a party band for a plethora of different events, all of which have different requirements. We are here to help no matter your needs!
