Dear the Fest band, I would like to express our sincere thanks to you all for the music played last week at our corporate event. It's a pleasure to work with wonderful artists! You provided exactly the backdrop we were hoping for. Absolutely incredible night thanks to your talent & experience! More than I had expected and desired! Regards, your new fans!

We hired The Fest 4 piece Wedding Band for our wedding in East Sussex in August. They were absolutely great and made our wedding extra special. Their choice of songs was pitched perfectly to get everyone dancing regardless of age and the dance floor was packed all night. They were completely professional in all respects from handling drunken requests for songs from guests and even when we ended up running horrifically late the band were completely understanding and did everything they could to make things work out. I can recommend The Fest without hesitation as the perfect hassle free Wedding Band.


What is a cover band?

A cover band is a music group that plays well-known songs originally recorded by other artists. Unlike original bands, which create and perform their own music, a cover band focuses on playing well-known music from different genres and eras. The goal of a cover band is to entertain the audience and let them enjoy well-known music by accurately playing these songs and sometimes also enhancing them with their own interpretations.

Cover bands can be hired for various types of events, including parties, festivals, corporate functions, weddings and other special occasions.

What songs do live bands play at weddings?

The bands have a repertoire of songs from which they play. They are often open to suggestions and request numbers. It is a good idea to indicate this well in advance of booking. On the evening itself, requested songs can be detrimental to the construction of the set and therefore the enjoyment of the guests. If a requested song is not in the repertoire, several bands are willing to rehearse 1 or 2 songs.

How long does a live band play?

A standard performance consists of 3 sets of 45 minutes. This is spread over a period of 3 – 3.5 hours. Shorter performances are also possible. The maximum playing time of most live bands is 4 sets of 40 minutes. This can be spread over a period of 4 to 5 hours.

How long does it take to build the cover band?

The formation of bands takes approximately 45 minutes for 3 to 4 piece bands. For larger bands this takes 1 to 1.5 hours. We always adjust the amount of equipment to the group size. If the group is very large (more than 175 people), the setup time will also be longer.
