Verified profile

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

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!

We hired Uprising for our wedding and could not have been happier. Andy and his guys brought the energy and atmosphere to our evening and without a doubt made the party an absolute hit with all our guests. We could say many great things about them but want to point out 2 things in particular that we think really encapsulates the professionalism these guys demonstrated. 20 miles into their journey the boys in true Rock & Roll fashion, broke down on the side of the motorway. Despite this incredibly frustrating and stressful situation, they delivered an unbelievable performance and you wouldn’t even have known the difficulties that they faced before arriving at our wedding. We believe that a true skill at any event that has many different guests with varying ages, is the ability to read the room and perform songs that keep people invested and involved. Andy and the boys were able to keep within musical theme for us whilst performing just the right songs to ensure everyone from friends to parents to grandparents got on the dancefloor. If you want a rock/indie-esque band but are slightly worried on how that could go down, you have nothing to fear as these guys know how to handle a varied crowd. For us Uprising are now part of our history and we can’t wait to see them perform again. Rock on.

My husband and I have differing music tastes so trying to find a wedding band was a tough decision. I came across Uprising and saw that they were relatively local, they played songs my husband likes and they appealed to me as they had really good voices! The band were very friendly and approachable when they arrived, we knew straight away we had made the right decision. The band were amazing, us and the guests loved them! They played great songs and added so much atmosphere to the day! The singer Andys voice is really great and they all played their instruments incredibly well! Do not hesitate to book them! We would book them again in a heartbeat. We have also already had guests ask for their details so they can book them in the future! Thank you so much Uprising, you made our wedding day!
