Questions people ask cover bands
- Can a band cover any song?
We pride ourselves on putting on a high-quality performance, but with enough notice - anything is possible. We have put together a varied and upbeat playlist that's guaranteed to get the party going, but if there's a particular song you'd like us to play then we'll do our best to accommodate it into our set.
- How did you choose your name?
It's hard to come up with cover band name ideas. Some bands turn to a cover band name generator, but we chose our name as it was the first suggestion that everyone agreed on. The suggestion was based on one of our favourite acoustic duos, The Civil Wars.
- What is a function band?
A function band is a group of musicians that play music for weddings, parties or events.
- Cover band vs tribute band - what's the difference?
Where tribute bands focus on one artist, cover bands will put together a playlist of music from various artists. We pride ourselves on finding incredible songs and performing our own versions of them.
