About Uprising

Rock band
Norwich
Public liability insurance of £10 million
An energetic indie/rock/pop 4 piece band hailing from Norwich. We’ve been together since 09’ and putting on a great show is what we do!

An energetic indie/rock 4 piece band hailing from Norwich, England. We’ve been together since 2009 and have a wealth of experience gigging up and down this wonderful country of ours. Putting on a brilliant show is what we do! We cover those indie classics such as, The Killers and Mr Brightside, Naive by the Kooks, whilst touching on those Britpop bangers by Blur and Oasis and we also bring a healthy dose of rock! With the classics from The Rolling Stones, AC/DC and even Metallica! Not quite hit the spot!? How about a bit of punk angst with Greenday, Bowling for Soup and Fallout boy... or maybe just some classic pop from Bon Jovi, Bryan Adams, Backstreet Boys or Ed Sheeran

Absolutely! We get asked this on a regular basis and this is so common we decided to include it free of charge!

Uprising was pure perfection. The guys kept in contact through the entire time before our wedding and really listened to our needs for the day. We wanted certain songs to be played that meant something to us and they were more than happy to play them. There performance was outstanding, every member of the band were extremely talented, the sound quality was amazing and they played with great enthusiasm and persision. I have been to many gigs in my life and only a few have delivered to uprising level. Everyone on our wedding day commented on how great the band was, even people who don't listen to that kind of music we're blown away and joined in. The guys termed up to the venue in plenty of time and set up with zero disturbance to the rest of the event and packed up in the same manner. Uprising were the perfect band for the day, we could not recommend them enough to others to use on their special day, if we have any excuse to use these guys again we definitely will. If you want a band that rock hard tasty abs washer board style then book uprising!

This band cancelled late on the day. So not at all happy after taking the trouble to find them. Then only to be given a £25 refund even though the new band did not have much travelling to do.

FANTASTIC! We booked the guys for our wedding last week. From start to end they were professional and did 3 amazing sets! My guests haven’t stopped talking about how great the band were! A HUGE thank you to Andy (Lead singer) who did all the bits behind the scene and was fabulous throughout the entire process from booking to choosing in between music etc etc. 100% recommend these guys to anyone!!!
