Indie band
Public liability insurance of £5 million

The Vinyls are now firmly established as one of the best live covers bands in the North West and anywhere in the country. Playing versions of classic rock and pop songs from the 60s through to the present day, the Vinyls go from strength to strength, building a loyal and passionate fanbase across the region. The band plays more than 60 shows a year at some of the top pubs and clubs on the circuit, as well as playing high profile events and functions, including weddings and birthday parties. They performed at the Fan Zone at Goodison Park before the Merseyside derby match and have entertained spectators at both The Big Colour Run at Neston CC and the Liverpool Rock 'n' Roll Marathon. They were recently proud to play at the Chester Legion 00 scooter rally and the Big 7 National Scooter rally in Kent in June 2022 supporting The Beat. The backbone of the set are covers of indie/Mod classics, including songs from The Jam, The Kinks, Arctic Monkeys, Oasis, Kings of Leon, the Beatles and the Stones - plus much more. This is our style, our strength and our strongpoint. We are friendly, professional and reliable and if you book us you will not be disappointed!

From Amy & Graham Wedding at Plas Hafod, 2nd Sept 2017 Thank you again, I'm so glad you could be there to help make our night the brilliant night it was. I've heard nothing but great feedback about you, you were absolutely amazing and such a great variety of songs which everyone enjoyed. The DJ said he thought you were all a great bunch and thought the whole process of sorting out times for you both to play was so easy. I've been asked by a few people what your band name was so they can keep you in mind for future events, and we've even spoke of throwing a birthday bash for our next big birthday - you'll definitely be first on our list, it would be a pleasure to have you play again. I will certainly recommend you whenever I'm asked for a band as you were absolutely brilliant and i can't thank you enough for making the night so enjoyable, the atmosphere was so lively and nice to see so many having a good old dance! Thanks again to you all, You're a great bunch of guys & we wish you the very best in your future gigs, and hopefully will see you again in a couple of years.

From Anna, 40th birthday party at St Joseph's club, Birkenhead, January 2016 Thanks for helping make my big birthday party so special. All my family and friends were so impressed that I'd managed to book such a great band and everyone said how entertaining you are - and how hard you work! The poor DJ hardly got a look in, which was fine by me... You were so professional and organised, you arrived early in order to get set-up and ready to play before the guests started to arrive. I would definitely recommend you to anyone who is looking for a party band, with a bit of an edge. Special thanks for learning 'Mr Brightside' just for me!
