When you think of rock music and a live rock band, you probably soon think of leather jacks, rock-hard guitar solos, and noisy concert. However, the rock music genre is much more than that. Variations from hard rock, punk rock, country rock, and pop rock are all different movements within the genre that also have many regional variations. In short, when we talk about booking a rock band, we are actually talking about a very broad concept.

Even modern day bands such as Coldplay and Arctic Monkeys have made a name for themselves as rock bands with a unique aesthetic. Thanks to the success of such bands, the local rock scene has been very buzzy for decades, which is also good news for you as an organizer of an event.

A piece of history about rock music
Compared to many other music genres, such as classical music and various Latin-American genres, rock music is a relatively young genre. This music, generally based on (electric) guitars, bass and drums, originated in the United States in the late 1940s, thanks to the convergence of various musical trends and elements from that period. Country and blues were very popular at the time, while the electric guitar was also introduced. Many of the first rock stars, such as Chuck Berry, were heavily inspired by blues music when making the first rock music.
In the early sixties, rock music already looked a lot more like the image of the genre that we associate with it today. Among other things, the Rolling Stones had given rock a more rebellious and controversial image, and by the time the seventies came, various subgenres of rock music had become global trends. The punk genre also grew large during that period, led by popular bands such as the Sex Pistols and The Clash.
When the 1980s came, rock music was losing a bit of popularity, mainly due to the lack of innovation and creativity within the genre. This made room for the growth of subgenres, including new wave rock from bands such as Depeche Mode and the R.E.M. Rock music started to move again towards the more rebellious and deviant image that music had in the sixties, and thanks to that trend it became one of the most popular types of music among younger people and students.
Hard rock, from bands like Puddle of Mud and Staind, alternative rock, from bands like Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters, and bands like Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit mixed different genres with rock music, growing into world-famous ensembles afterwards.
Over the past two decades, rock music has continued to evolve through alternative rock bands such as Coldplay and The White Stripes, while bands such as The Red Hot Chili Peppers still fill entire stages for their concerts. Despite the fact that the history of rock music is still fairly recent, the genre has been through a lot since the 1940s. In a short time it has become one of the most popular and most listened to genres in the world, and that has also ensured that there are a lot of rock bands to book in the UK for private parties and corporate events. This only suits you better as an organizer, since it means that there is guaranteed to be a rock band that is perfect for the occasion you are going to organize. At Evenses, we are happy to help you find that choice for you.
Why it can be a nice idea to book a rock band
Booking a rock band can be a great idea for a wide variety of parties and events ranging from birthdays, festivals, and corporate events. However, if you still have some doubts, we will list a few reasons for booking a rock band below.
It brings life to the party
As we have written before, there are many different types of rock music. Whatever genre you choose, you can count on the rock band to bring some life to the party. Rock music generally includes guitars, drums, and bass, and the rhythm is often very energetic. Booking a rock band is the perfect way to get your guests singing along and on the dance floor.
Rock music can be adjusted to the audience
One of the most important factors to take into account as the organizer of a party or event is the audience that you invite. The great thing about rock music is that you can fine tune the band to the guests that will be present. If, for example, there are mainly people around the age of fifty, then a rock band in the trend of David Bowie and The Police might be suitable. Are there more people who grew up in the nineties? Then a rock band that plays music from bands like the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Linkin Park, for example, might be a good idea. In other words, by booking a rock band you can adapt the party to very different types of guests.
