What is a cover band exactly? That’s a pretty good question. A cover band (Or covers band – Plural) is a group of musicians that perform live music by other artists. A covers live band will NOT perform songs written by themselves. Said band will perform music of a specific genre (in our case Indie Rock) or from a specific decade. A cover band will not generally dress up to look like the bands they are aping. (‘Punch The Air‘ will perform for you in our own smart uniform though). This is different to a tribute band who will generally perform live music by one specific artist and dress up to look like the band too. Another name for our type of band is a function band, wedding band or party band.
