Cover bands are music groups that focus on playing cover songs from popular mainstream musicians. Many new or unrecognized bands consider the band approach more marketable especially in minor gigs. They’re also known as variety bands and party bands. Bands whose covers include mostly chart hits are called Top 40 bands.
Cover bands usually play a varied mix of songs from different music eras like the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, and the recent decade coupled with different musical styles. Some bands focus specifically on one particular group. This type of band is a tribute band. So it is not surprising to encounter Earth, Wind and Fire cover bands, Michael Jackson band or Oasis bands.
They are a very popular choice for corporate or private events, wedding receptions, as well as in clubs and bars. Since bands play songs that people have come to know and love, bands make for a good party entertainment choice.
It’s essential to check out the band’s repertoire to make sure that they can play your favorite cover songs on your event. Whether you prefer to fill your special event with sleek Motown classics, Groovy disco sounds or current chart-topping hits, a professional cover ban can surely meet those needs.
