Recommended Indie Bands To Transform Your Events

It's indie rock 'n' roll for me: recommended indie bands to transform your events

Indie music is undoubtedly one of the most diverse genres - and it’s also one of the most popular. For those who want a little more edginess to their tunes without losing that universal toe-tapping catchiness that will get everybody on the dance floor, it’s got to be indie rock n’ roll.

While indie music has its roots in the 1980s, it’s been a mainstay in both the charts and public consciousness ever since - from The Smiths to Oasis and The Strokes to Arctic Monkeys, indie guitar anthems are enjoyed by all generations - but with millennials and Gen X’ers in particular having a soft spot for those raw, passionate guitar pop anthems. Whether you’re looking to book a wedding band or want to bring that catchy, edgy guitar jangle to a corporate event, these indie rock bands are certain to get the crowd going:

Brightside - Recommended Indie Rock Wedding, Party and Corporate Function Band


Brightside is a Hampshire-based indie trio that puts on a seriously energetic live show. Mixing noughties indie bangers from the likes of The Coral, Arctic Monkeys and The Kooks with contemporary classics from Rag N’ Bone Man and Elvis Presley (albeit with an indie-rock twist), Brightside are the perfect wedding band for those who want to bring some serious energy to the dancefloor.

Smith & Sons - Recommended Indie Rock Wedding, Party and Corporate Function Band

Smith & Sons

Who could ever forget when Mumford & Sons created an indie-folk explosion in the charts and hearts of the UK? At a time when pop, R&B and more angular indie rock music was du jour, Mumford & Sons brought something different to the table - and now you can do the same at your wedding or corporate event.

Smith & Sons take the Mumford aesthetic to deliver an honest, earnest and heartfelt indie-folk vibe. They’re the perfect band for outdoor summer celebrations, and deliver contemporary covers in that inimitable Mumford folk style - so why not get the hay bales out and enjoy your own mini-festival with one of the UK's finest indie acts?

High School Reunion - Recommended Indie Rock Wedding, Party and Corporate Function Band

High School Reunion

If you prefer the harder edge of pop-punk and college rock, High School Reunion will provide you with the time of your life. With fuzzy guitars, catchy emo harmonies and classics from the likes of Green Day, Blink 182, Avril Lavigne and Fall Out Boy among more contemporary pop hits, HSR are certain to turn the dancefloor into a mosh pit - truly a great choice for all those skater boys and girls out there.

Complete entertainment packages tailored to you

If you’re looking for wedding bands or planning a corporate event, the good news is that with each of these acts you’ll get the full package, including professional lighting, PA setup and a bespoke DJ service before and after live sets, to ensure your celebrations really go with a bang.
