The Risen perform some of the best rock/pop & indie hits from the last four decades. They have made a name for themselves as one of the best live cover bands in the UK, having headlined some of the largest events both in the UK and around the world, and with a reputation to always guarantee a highly charged and highly enjoyable evening that won't be forgotten. The Risen always provide a friendly and efficient service from the initial booking right through to the day of the event. They pride themselves on working to an exceptionally high standard as musicians and maintain a professional attitude at all times.

The Risen's experience is second to none having performed all over the world headlining corporate events such as The Carlsberg Festival, Tigi Awards, ITV Awards, Rugby League Millenium Magic. Performing at celebrity weddings, parties and corporate events, The Risen travel all over the world playing at many of the biggest events. They play totally live which is the only way to get that energy and excitement that only a live band can provide. With a huge amount of enthusiasm and talent, The Risen give clients a very accurate rendition of their repertoire and in a lot of cases have been said to be even better than the original.

The Risen provide professional sound and lighting equipment, as well as quality instruments and backline, all fully PAT-tested and with public liability insurance.

The band can also provide a chilled-out acoustic set which consists of the same songs performed on acoustic guitars, hotrods on drums and fantastic three-piece harmonies. The acoustic set is very popular with smaller more intimate venues or if a client is looking for quality low-key background music.

Truly not enough space in the feedback box to tell you how goods these guys are! Played at our Wedding and they were simply brilliant from start to finish. They played requests and managed the set to ensure we’re up all night dancing and bouncing about out to some banging anthems!! These guys know how to rock the party! Rich was a great guy and a true professional. I’d book them again tomorrow!!

Thank you guys for playing at our wedding! Everyone said how good you were and you had people dancing all night and cheering for more at the end! Thanks for making our day such good fun!

Absolutely fantastic! People were delighted that the band remembered some of them from our event last year. They tailored the music to suit the crowd and what music they were responding to, couldn't fault a thing. The band were very flexible and were able to change the set list at the last minute.

Thank you so much for entertaining us at our wedding. All the guys were just lovely, and Rich, you were a great sport with my guests who truly believed that they were part of the band (including me!!) I have a couple of my friends who are getting married soon and have asked for your details so you may have to trek up north again boys.... Again many thanks, you were brilliant!!

Wow! This group know how to get a party going and to keep it in full swing. The guys are polite and exceedingly helpful. So many guests asked where did we find this band during the evening and are still asking. We cannot thank them enough for making our evening such a special one. The Harringtons
