Covers Band For Hire: London And Beyond!

The Forgers are a London based rock and indie cover band (as seen on TV!) and can be hired for all types of events. We cover the whole of the UK, not only London. We regularly perform in Surrey, Sussex, Essex, Hampshire, Berkshire, Oxfordshire, Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire and have travelled much further afield for gigs - we just love to play our music!

The Band

The Forgers covers band are three highly experienced professionals who play electric/acoustic guitar, bass, and drum kit/percussion. We are all also accomplished lead and backing vocalists. Basically we do the work of six men!

We have played at hundreds of bars, weddings, university balls, garden parties, corporate events, private functions and parties, both in the UK and internationally, and have performed to thousands at music festivals across the country.

Members of the band have entertained celebrities such as Stevie Wonder, Frank Sinatra Jnr, Denise Lewis, Ian Botham, Tim Rice, Phil Tuffnell, Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Anna Friel and David Thewlis. We can also provide a duo if required - please contact us for further details.

The Music

We specialise in rock, pop and indie covers from the 90's onwards, but can also play a 'classics' set of music from the sixties onwards or an acoustic 'chill-out' set. We tend to mix it up a bit to suit each individual client and audience. See our set list for full details, or check out our audio recordings to the right of this page.

The Show

The Forgers offer a choice between 2x45, 2x60, 3x30 or 3x40 minute sets. Please let us know what you require - if we can accomodate you, we will.

Our cover band play 100% live. Every note you will hear is played on the spot – no backing tracks! We are a party band and perform with a lot of energy - we’ll kick start your party for you and have you and your guests up and dancing in no time. The Forgers are big fans of “audience participation” and WILL have you singing along by the end of the night! If you shout loud enough we may even play an encore... Why not watch our videos for a taster?

A Band For Weddings

If you are looking at wedding bands for hire, we are only too pleased to help! Between us, we have been hired to play at hundreds of weddings so we know what works and what doesn’t! We are a wedding band based in London, so can offer you preferential rates if your wedding reception is in London. For weddings further afield you will find our wedding band quote very competitive so please do enquire – we are a three piece wedding band so can charge less than larger bands for your wedding. Unlike many other wedding bands for hire we are a not a cheesy disco act! We will NEVER play any ABBA!

In October 2011, The Forgers cover band appeared on BBC3's 'Don't Tell The Bride' show. Needless to say the bride was delighted with the surprise band and enjoyed every minute of the first dance (played by us of course)! In case you are wondering, it was ‘You & Me Song’ by The Wannadies!

A Band For Corporate and Charity Events

Need a band for your Christmas party? We have entertained many corporate clients, including Royal Bank Of Scotland and The Ministry Of Defence. The Forgers cover band are always approachable regarding charity gigs, and have performed at events which have raised many thousands of pounds for charity.

A Band For Hotels, Bars, Pubs & Clubs

Our band has a wealth of experience playing at these types of venues and we are happy to arrange things to suit you and your customers. We will get the place jumping up and down and singing along. Do you need a band for Halloween, Valentine's night or a band for new year's eve?

A Band For Private Parties And Functions

The Forgers covers band can make any event a success with our live music. Throwing a party for your birthday or wedding anniversary? Summer garden party? Make your next event memorable with the help of The Forgers. We are passionate about the music we play and put our heart and soul into every song.
