Rock & pop function bands

Exceptional rock & pop cover bands to keep your guests on the dancefloor with upbeat rock, pop & indie anthems

Book a rock & pop function band to play everything from time-tested classics by The Beatles and The Rolling Stones to catchy modern anthems by Bruno Mars, Ed Sheeran and Adele – enough to get all ages on their feet.

Our function bands vary in size – smaller, guitar-based line-ups of three or four members, usually performing rock, Britpop and indie, while larger bands with keys and brass section can recreate a wider range of genres through the decades.

Our rock and pop function bands have experience playing at a broad range of events and celebrations, from weddings to birthday parties, christenings to bar mitzvahs, pubs to festivals. They also provide live music for a variety of corporate functions from small office parties to blue-chip company balls.

All the function bands listed below are intended for after-dinner dancing. If you’re after a band to provide music during a drinks reception or meal, check out our background musicians instead. We also have a range of wedding ceremony musicians.

Please add your event date and location to check availability.

Booking a rock & pop function band?

Booking one of our rock and pop function bands is easy – they are self-contained, professional and bring their own PA, instruments and backline. They are quick and efficient at setting up and sound checking. All you need to do on the day is provide a flat and sheltered area big enough for them to perform. They will also need access to a power source.

Our function bands know how to get the party started, and they’ll play for up to 2 hours in sets of either 2 x 1 hour or 3 x 40 minutes. During their intervals they will play music via mp3 to keep your dancefloor full, but most offer an upgrade to a full DJ service if you want someone to mix songs and take requests. If you need the band to play for longer or later than midnight, extra fees can apply.

You may want your function band to perform your first dance, they will be happy to do this if you let them know your song choice in advance. Occasionally a band will be unable to perform your request as their line-up may not be able to do the song justice, in which case they can play it via mp3 through their PA system.

Have a look at the individual profiles to see what extra services a band can offer you throughout your day. Add-ons such as cocktail piano, smooth background jazz or acoustic sets are all great ways to make the most of your function band booking. This way, you eliminate the extra fees and travel costs of booking separate musicians. Other ways to keep costs down are by planning an off-peak wedding (winter or weekday) or booking a band local to your event.

Our rock and pop function bands will need time before the venue is filled with guests to set up and soundcheck, we recommend scheduling at least an hour for this. In order to keep energy levels high, most of our bands ask for a hot meal on the day, this will be detailed in your booking contract.
