About Neverwas

1980s era tribute band

NeverWas is a lively and entertaining six-piece rock, pop and soul covers band based in Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire. Our good-time set ranges from Aretha Franklin to ZZ Top, via Fleetwood Mac, Tina Turner, Muse, Scissor Sisters and many others. We play material from the 60s to the 00s and we have a large enough repertoire to tailor our set to your needs. We’ll even do requests if you let us know in advance. One thing is sure – whatever we play, our brand of high-energy rock, pop and soul will have the crowd up and dancing in no time ! Have a look at our attached song list, or listen to the attached samples of our set, to get an idea of what we do. NeverWas was formed in 2018 by musicians with many years of varied professional and semi-professional experience between them. The band includes musicians with a wide range of ages, from a millenial to our drummer who started playing professionally in the house band at a German brothel in 1967 ! NeverWas is : Nina and Will (vocals), Chris (guitar) Baz (keyboards), Mick (bass) and Jess (drums). We have all our own equipment including PA and lights, all of it is PAT tested, and we carry full Public Liability insurance. We’re happy to play pubs, clubs, parties, events and functions of all kinds. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
