‘The Alibi’ are a rock covers band and have been together for over 17 years and consist of a male singer, lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass guitar and drummer.

Their influences range from Paul Weller, Ocean Colour Scene, The Jam, The Arctic Monkeys, The Killers, Oasis, Green Day, RazorLight, The Vaccines, The Foo Fighters, The Beatles, The Stereophonics and generally anything which sounds good, so the band is constantly adding new material to their set lists. Please see our social media channels where you can view their song lists, listen to .mp3 demos and videos from various gigs around Dorset. Why not come and see us play and see for yourself, we promise you'll be impressed as have every venue we’ve played at to date! As well as using their own top end professional instruments, they have a flexible high standard PA system with sound engineer and stage lighting and always equip themselves and their gear sensibly depending on the venue. Regular gigging around Dorset has created a popular following for the band that are looking to build on their growing fan base and always looking for extra gigs, whether they're local or further a field. The emphasis of The Alibi and their performances is always on having fun and making sure the audience they’re playing to experiences the same.
