About One For The Road

Manchesters premier Pop, Funk, Rock, Indie covers band for Functions, Wedding, Festivals and more! You name it we've done it!!
Cover band
Public liability insurance of £2 million

One For The Road are a South Manchester covers band playing a weddings and functions scross the North West. Starting out 5 years ago in the local pub and bar scene we quickly were requested to play at multiple private funcitons and for years simply gigged through word of mouth and reccomendations! Now are focusing more on private functions and having an online presence so have been fortuante enough to be accepted by multiple online agencies. Collectively we have decades of experience in the music industry with all of us performing professionally! We strive to have a great party atmosphere and do not limit ourselves to one genre allowing us to play a huge variety of songs so that there is something for everyone. One thing that keeps us unique is that we still play at our local venues as we did when we first started as this allows us to try out new songs and see what works and on the very rare occasions, what doesnt, so that you know when you book us it is a solid set!! We are all great freinds when we are not playing meaning that we have great chemistry when performing and we are all in sync with each other and have the experience to deal with any situation or venue that we are thrown into. There are no pre-madonnas in our group! We look forward to playing for your soon!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Well, obviously the music but also that we interact with the crowd and we get them involved. I think that it's a little awkward when a band just turn up, play and then go without talking to the audience and driving the party.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have done a very broad mix of events. Festivals, community events, sports, and social clubs, castles, peoples houses etc, the list goes on.

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Being a cover band we have a massive range of influences, everything from Queen & Status Quo to The Killers, Rag n Bone man, Red Hot Chilli Peppers. The list again just goes on!

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

Well, being a wedding & function band we are usually booked for private functions as a collective but individually we have played on TV, at the Palladium in London, the radio, music awards nights, top of the pops, festivals, etc.

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

Yes. With the singer being usually the most focal point of the band we always have the same singer for events.

Do you have different line-up options?


What if my timings change after I've booked you?

We always like to be as flexible as possible. We understand that sometimes things don't always go to plan so it's just a case of communicating with us to let us know whats going on.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes, If you look in our "add-ons" we have included it as an optional extra or alternatively the band as a standard will play music in between sets to keep the atmosphere going!

How much time do you need to set up?

Usually about an hour to an hour and a half. It can sometimes depend on the venue as we always like to soundcheck to make sure it's perfect. We have played in a couple of castles in our time so it can sometimes take a little longer to get the sound right but we will accommodate for that by arriving earlier.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We usually like to pick the list as we have been doing this for MANY years now and we have a really good idea of what works, however, we are open to learning additional songs if required or perhaps sticking with a certain theme if required.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?


Can you learn song requests before the event?

We can, there is an increased premium for this as it is a lot of work that goes into getting a song right for you, especially if it's the first dance for example but yes, we are happy to learn additional songs. (Providing there is enough time!)

Saw One for the Road a couple of weeks ago and they were great! Front man had everyone up dancing from the first song, loads of energy and enthusiasm. Just a proper good vibe. The whole Band was brilliant. Loads of songs that everyone loves to get up and dance too and a proper good sing along! Will definitely go and see them again. If I ever get married this is my band 😂
