Sometimes it is essential that you find a band that has the exclusive ability to expertly play some
of the 'classics'. For no matter how good a band's original music is, it's still an amateur one and
won't really match up to the greats. This is the role and point of a covers band.

A good covers band is like a jack of all trades and a master of one. Their inventory might list a vast
genre of music but they more often or better play songs of one or of one particular time.

The thing they do best is play music that other bands have already done.

So if you are interested in getting a cover band for your occasion, then there are a couple of things
you need to know and keep in mind.

Probably the best way to find a covers band that plays the style and sound you want is on the

For instance, you may discover a band nearby. You may find the right band in your own town or
just few towns over.

Since most bands charge for the distance they travel to get to your event, finding a good band
nearby is mighty helpful as this reduces traveling expenses considerably. In this case of course
lesser is always better!
You can find them in online directories, which are closest to you. This will help you to avoid the
extra fees for the travel expenses.

The second advantage of using the internet is that one gets to hear the band's sound even before
contacting the same.

You may listen to clips uploaded by the bands on their personal MySpace pages. Most covers
bands are going to have one.

Listening to their music will allow you to estimate their ability and their skill as a covers band.

It's absolutely essential that you spend time in listening to their music. If the bands don't provide
electronic examples on their site, you can very well email them asking to be given a sample CD or
a DVD video displaying their capabilities.

Also make sure you have it in mind what songs or style you want the band to play. It is also very
important before hiring them that you inform them about your party rules and regulations.

The more you communicate with your chosen band and the more questions you ask, the better
would be the output on the D Day.

Think hard about the money you have set aside for the band. There should be harmony or some
semblance between what you are paying and what other bands will charge for a similar event.
This is where a research of other bands will be helpful.

One thing you should not do is rush your choice. Start your planning early and give generous
amounts of your time to selecting the right band. You will not be harried because there are a lot of
talented young people waiting to rock!
