Frequently asked questions

What is a cover band?

A cover band is a musical group that performs songs originally recorded by other artists. Instead of creating original music, they specialise in replicating popular hits from various genres, imitating the original songs' melodies, lyrics, and arrangements. Cover bands play at a wide range of events, (weddings, corporate events, private events) offering audiences familiar tunes to dance and sing along to. Their ability to perform well-known songs appeals to diverse crowds, making them a popular choice for entertainment. Cover bands often infuse their unique style into these songs, ensuring a lively and enjoyable musical experience for listeners.

What is the difference between a cover band and a tribute band?

A cover band sings songs from various artists and genres, whereas a tribute band is dedicated to imitating the music, style, and, in some cases, appearance of a certain artist or band.

Can a cover band play any song?

In the UK, as in many other countries, cover bands are subject to copyright laws and regulations. Cover bands can perform songs that are protected by copyright, but they typically need to obtain licenses to do so legally. Performance licenses are usually obtained through organizations like PRS for Music (Performing Right Society), which represent songwriters, composers, and music publishers. When a cover band obtains a license from organisations like PRS for Music, they are granted the legal right to perform and publicly perform copyrighted songs during their live performances. These licenses ensure that the original creators and copyright holders are compensated for the use of their music. Bands with these licenses can perform your favourite songs and keep the dance floor packed all night long.

Do bands have to pay to cover songs live?

In the United Kingdom, cover bands often do not need to pay royalties for performing live cover versions of songs. The venues where these bands perform, on the other hand, may hold licences with performance rights organisations (PROs) such as PRS for Music, allowing them to stage live music events. These licences frequently cover the performance of copyrighted songs, guaranteeing that songwriters and original artists get compensated. These venue licences help tribute artists by allowing them to play without individual royalty commitments. It is critical that venues have the necessary licences.

How long should a cover band play?

Cover bands typically play two one-hour sets or three forty-minute sets, with a 15 to 30-minute break in between. Setup and soundcheck for your band will take about an hour and a half.

What makes a good cover band?

A good cover band excels in capturing the essence of the original songs while adding their unique flair. They prioritise musical skill, tight instrumentation, and vocal talent to recreate songs authentically. Versatility is key, allowing them to perform a wide range of genres and eras, where its pop hits, rock pop, or classic ballads, catering to diverse audiences. All professional musicians should also have great stage presence and audience engagement to enhance the live experience and foster a connection with listeners. Additionally, they respect copyright laws, securing necessary licenses, and always acknowledge the original artists. Ultimately, a great cover band strikes a balance between faithful renditions and creative reinterpretations, delivering memorable performances that resonate with audiences.
