Rock & Indie covers band for hire

The Forgers cover band are an English rock and indie covers band. We are based in London, but available for hire across the UK. We regularly travel as far as Devon, The Lake District and Wales.

Established in 2008, The Forgers have earned a reputation as the UK's leading three-piece covers band, with a huge repertoire of hits suitable for any event. The band consists of guitar, bass and drums. We all sing lead and harmony vocals. We also offer an acoustic set, which is popular for wedding ceremonies and garden parties.

If you're looking for wedding band music, or live music for any event, we can help. We have played at hundreds of events across the country, from small house parties, churches and pubs to huge conference centres and festival stages.

The band are masters of audience participation and will have the audience dancing and singing along with the hit songs in their setlist!

The Forgers also offer a free laptop DJ package - no need to hire a separate DJ!. You can even choose the songs!

"Thank u so much for playing at our wedding, we had such a good time. Everyone loved the church and the evening." Amie and Danny.

"Just wanted to thank you for playing at our wedding on Saturday night, you guys were brilliant!! I was torn between watching you and my circulating with our guests, if I am honest I don’t think I got to speak to as many of my guests as I should have done. I hope you don’t mind but I am going to blame the band if any mention it in the future! Very polished and well practiced, you are amazing at what you do, I cannot recommend you enough!! At one point I thought the room was literally bouncing with everyone jumping up and down on the dance floor! Thank you for learning Kasabian Underdog for us, loved it! Don’t forget to add it to your set list, I am sure it others will enjoy it too!" Rob and Clare

"Thanks for playing at the wedding on Friday and helping to make it such a cracking party and thanks for learning the song so that we could do our first dance. Everyone said what a cracking band you were to us. Thanks for adjusting the timings as well, the best laid plans and all that….. and the sound limiting wasn’t too bad in the end either as the older people didn’t complain about it being too loud!" Andy and Vanessa

"The band on the evening of a wedding make or break it in my opinion and you guys were just amazing… on behalf of Gemma and I, thank you so much. Quite a few people asked for your contact details so I passed them on, I think that is always a good sign! We will try and pop down to see you on 20th at Stage Door but if we don’t make it, we will catch your next show. Please also pass my thanks to Chris and Max, see you soon. PS. apologies for the over raucous moshing and the potential damage to equipment but quite frankly its your own fault for being so damn good!".James and Gemma

"Dear Cliff, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for a fantastic performance with your band last night at our anniversary party. We had a thoroughly brilliant evening. Everything worked so well for us, even though I know we were a little late getting cleared up after the supper! We had such a lot of good comments about the The Forgers, which was reflected in the amount of people on the dance floor! I think the music mix was brilliant – the young set were surprised and delighted that there was music they could dance to at an “olds” party, and a few youngsters in their 70s also got up for a boogie! Today some of my friends have told me that they didn’t do much chatting as they wanted to dance all night! You have a very talented group and I hope you can pass on our thanks to them also. Its been a while since I have heard so many positive comments about a band at a party, so I am very pleased to have been the one to book you! Best wishes, and thanks again". Sarah and Jonnie
