I must have seen well over 1000 live shows . More if you count the showcases we have held over the years where up to fifteen bands battle it out for an opportunity to secure live gigs at walkabout, holiday centres, universities, weddings or events.
Amongst the legendary live acts I have been lucky enough to see lots of cover band live gigs stand out as brilliant memories.
The Hi Fidels Australia day 2009 Temple Walkabout.
Somewhere in the region of 1000 Aussies were already in the party mood when we entered the venue at 7.30 as the hi fidels played sex is on fire by the kings of leon.the audience sang along with every line and when I eventually got a view of the stage the band were draped in aussie flags.for the next 60 mins they ran through every crowd pleasing anthem in the book and the audience lapped it up.
Becasue it was australia day the hifidels dropped in some aussie classic rock anthems including a note perfect never tear us apart by Inxs. Afterwards I asked the band how often they had played this song and they confessed that they had played it once before as the first dance for a wedding twelve months previously.genius.
The Hifidels never fail to deliver but in front of the Walkabout Temple Australia day crowd they excelled. The Hi Fidels are one of the most exciting live cover bands in the UK and perfect for any event or wedding.
Freak Out Playing in front of 30 people
I have seen Freak Out deliver several outstanding shows. Amongst the stand outs would be the opening night of Leicester Walkabout where they had a packed house eating out of their hands and the First Choice holidays reunion weekend at Skegness Butlins where the party crowd went wild for Freak Outs mix of party , indie and rnb.
However the Freak Out show which stands out above all others is the night they played a low key showcase gig to an audience of 30 people.
Freak Out took to the stage with a confidence which only comes from being at the top of their game. They played a mash up musical mix of great covers tracks encompassing rnb favourites by Michael Jackson and Justin Timberlake and rock anthems such as “Livin On a Prayer” with tracks like “mr Brightside”by the Killers.
Within three songs they had encouraged ten girls onto the dancefloor (remember this is in front of an audience of thirty) and they were away, impressing everyone with their Prince like slickness and funky cool vibe.
To play in front of a crowd of thirty and still get a great atmosphere is some feat but one Freak Out achieved with cool, verve and ease. If you are looking for a band for your party or wedding call 08454 900515 and speak to one of our team about Freak Out.

Lucas at Shepherds Bush Walkabout
Lucas are a band with an outstanding pedigree. Seasoned young musicians who are can turn their hand to almost any style of music what sets them apart from other three piece live party wedding bands is their energy and personality. Coming on stage fifth at a cse showcase competing for a place playing shows overseas for the military Lucas just blew the place apart. Opening with their backs to the audience and guitars held aloft they turned around to deliver a thirty minute medley of the highlights of their live show which they perform at weddings ,parties and events throughout the UK.At the end of the show they had won over the cse crew who have since regularly booked them to perform for the military. In fact if you check out the main LMM website you will see a video of Lucas performing in Cyprus for the military They also do a superb job playing at weddings throughout the UK and we get endless positive feedback from clients who have booked this great live band for a wedding.
