FAQs about hiring Tribute Bands in Tyne And Wear

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

What is a tribute band?

A tribute band is a musical group that exclusively performs the songs of a specific well-known artist or band, imitating their style, appearance, and often, their stage presence. These bands are dedicated to recreating the music and sometimes even the costumes and mannerisms of the original artists, offering audiences a nostalgic or celebratory experience. Tribute acts can play anywhere from weddings to private events to corporate events, where guests can enjoy a live performance reminiscent of their favourite artists, even if the original band is no longer active or available for shows.

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

A cover band performs a wide range of songs from different artists and genres, while a tribute band is dedicated to emulating the music, style, and often the appearance of a specific artist or band.

How long should a tribute band play?

Tribute bands normally perform two 1-hour sets or three 40-minute sets, with a 15- to 30-minute break in between. Your band's setup and soundcheck will take about an hour and a half.

What makes a good tribute band?

A standout tribute band meticulously replicates the original artist's music, stage presence, and mannerisms. Attention to detail in everything from sound to appearance, is paramount. Professionalism in punctuality and performance is crucial. Hire a tribute act that balances popular hits and fan favourites to keep the audience engaged. A great band strikes the perfect balance between authenticity and adaptability, creating an unforgettable homage to the original artist. Explore Encore's collection of some of the best best tribute bands in the UK.

Do tribute bands pay royalties?

Tribute bands in the UK typically do not pay royalties for performing live cover versions of songs. However, the venues where these bands perform might have licenses with performance rights organisations (PROs) like PRS for Music, which allows them to host live music events. These licenses often cover the performance of copyrighted songs, ensuring that songwriters and original artists receive royalties for their work. Tribute artists benefit from these venue licenses, allowing them to perform without individual royalty obligations. It's important for venues to have the appropriate licenses to ensure compliance with copyright laws and fair compensation for songwriters.
