Book a Tribute Band for your party, birthday or wedding! Are you getting married soon and you are still looking for the perfect band for a live performance during the party? Do you have a summer backyard party in a few weeks and would you like to provide some live entertainment? Or is your partner's birthday coming up and she is crazy about the Beatles or the Red Hot Chili Peppers? Booking the original bands is probably going to be quite difficult, both in terms of availability and budget, but have you ever considered booking a good tribute band?
You may have heard of tribute bands before, but in case you don't know exactly what we are talking about: A tribute band or tribute act is a music group, singer, or musician who specifically plays the music of a famous band or act and does their best to dress or imitate them. This type of entertainment includes individual artists who mimic an artist's songs and style, such as Elvis imitators and bands that only play the music of The Beatles or REO Speedwagon. By booking a good tribute band, you can simulate the experience of attending a concert of your favorite band at the party or event that you are going to organize.
The tribute genre has been a very popular option for all kinds of occasions for decades. Over the years there have been several tribute bands that have built up a huge number of fans for themselves, such as the Iron Maidens, a tribute band consisting of only women who play music from Iron Maiden, the Swedish pop group A*Teens who play music from ABBA, and Queen Extravaganza Tour, a Queen tribute band founded by Queen's drummer, Roger Taylor.

A little piece about the tribute band
Imitation is the best form of flattery and if we are talking specifically about tribute bands as described above, then the history probably starts in the 50's. After Elvis Presley got hold of his first number one hit in the United States, acts started popping up that started to imitate both the hit music and the recognizable style of the King of Rock 'n Roll. Both the well-known Elvis imitator and the concept of the tribute band were born with this. In general, it is the bands with a large cult following, such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, and the Rolling Stones, that also inspire a large number of tribute bands.
Nowadays you can find tribute bands all over the world, but besides the United States there is one other country where the tribute band plays a particularly large role in the music industry, namely Australia. That is because, in the past, the big and famous bands regularly ignored Australia when planning tours and therefore other promotional activities, due to the location of the country. As a result, tribute bands with large numbers of fans and even their own albums and tours have emerged in Australia over the past decades, such as The Beatnix, The Australian Pink Floyd Show, and Zeppelin Live.
There are also tribute bands in the UK that have become bands that only play music from Metallica, AC/DC, and Toto. As soon as you start looking for a tribute band for your party or event, you will see how much variation there is and how much choice you have. On our website alone you will find dozens of tribute bands that are regularly booked for various occasions.
Some points to look out for when booking a tribute band
An appropriate tribute band can be exactly what you need to create the atmosphere you are looking for at your party or event. However, there are a few factors to watch out for during the booking process and it is therefore wise to call in the help of an experienced party such as Evenses. To give you an idea of what's important, we will list a few points below.
Search for material from previous performance
When booking a tribute band, it is very useful to watch videos from previous performances before signing the contracts. On our website you can find a lot of reviews from people who have already booked the tribute bands in our portfolio or have attended a concert of them. This will help you along the way to identify which tribute band is the best option for your event or party.
Check whether you can put together the playlist with the band
The fact that you are considering booking a tribute band probably means that you have a good knowledge of the repertoire of a certain band or that the person for whom you book the band for is a big fan. It is therefore important that the tribute band in question is receptive to suggestions from your side when it comes to putting together the playlist. You certainly have certain songs that you really want to hear, so make sure the band asks if you can go over the set list with them before the show is booked.
Make sure you know what the band needs to perform
How many members does the band consist of? What kind of instruments do they bring? Do they take care of their own transport? When booking a tribute band it is important that you know what the band needs during the performance. That way you know whether the location of the party is in order for the band and whether other things need to be arranged in addition to booking the tribute band. Keep a close eye on everything that is included in the price of the booking, so that you will not be faced with unpleasant surprises at a later point.
