Cover band

Back | Home | Up | Next

A cover band (or covers band) is a band that plays only cover songs. Most (but not all) wedding bands can be considered cover bands. Another term for cover band is 'party band'.

Cover bands typically play a mix of songs from different decades and different styles. Some cover bands play material from particular decades (for example, a 1980s cover band); others (called tribute bands) focus exclusively on a single group. It is not uncommon to find a Led Zeppelin cover band, a Pink Floyd cover band, or a U2 cover band.

Cover bands are very popular for weddings and corporate events, as well as in bars and clubs. Because they play songs people know and love, cover bands can be a real crowd pleaser.


Some examples are:

Björn Again
The Chee-Weez
Detroit Cobras
Hell's Belles
Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
Unauthorized Rolling Stones

Some cover bands, such as Richard Cheese and Lounge Against the Machine and Gregorian perform covers that are of a different music genre to the sound of the originals.
