About The Warning

One of the best rock & indie covers bands in the Midlands. From Arctic Monkeys to Ziggy Stardust, rock the night with non-stop classic hits
Cover band
Public liability insurance of £5 million

Long-established on the Midlands pub and party gigging scene, The Warning line-up comprises 5 of the nicest guys you could meet and includes a vast array of musical experience and expertise. We have an ever-expanding repertoire of songs, and, if you give us enough WARNING (see what we did there?), we can even learn and perform your favourite track from scratch - then maybe even invite you on stage to play or sing with us at your event! Our setlist includes a huge range of sensational rock and indie classics from bands like Foo Fighters, Thin Lizzy, Sex Pistols, Pink Floyd, Beatles and Queen, with plenty of contemporary numbers from bands like The Pretty Reckless, Black Keys and The Offspring. We can also throw in a few rock and roll oldies from the likes of Buddy Holly, Chuck Berry or Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, and we have even been known to 'rock-up' one or two pop favourites from bands like Abba and Duran Duran! Our frontman does a great line in audience banter to keep the party going, and can often be seen lost in the crowd with his wireless microphone, duetting with surprised fans. We have full public liability insurance and provide all our own gear including lights, PA and interval soundtrack; everything you need to make your event an unforgettable music, dance and singalong party!

Booked The Warning for my 50th - they were amazing , really flexible around set list, listened to exactly what I wanted and managed to set up and dismantle with a crowd of rowdy people around them I would highly recommend

Hi guys, just to say thank you for a terrific night. Everybody had a fabulous time and laods of people were asking about you. Great song selections, great music, great interaction with our guests, and just a fabulous night all round. You really made the whole thing go smoothly from start to finish. Cheers guys!

Awesome to have you guys play, I knew you would smash it after I saw you last time. Loved your song choices and well done on getting some of the lazy buggers up on their feet and dancing, haven't seen that for years mate. Will definitely spread the word around as other clubs are always asking for recommendations for their own festivals and stuff.
