Grouper - Rock & Pop Band
GROUPER are a professional and dynamic 4 piece contemporary and classic indie rock and pop band featuring an incredible line up of international touring musicians of the highest quality. Grouper play guitar based hits from Travis to U2, Blur to Supergrass, Coldplay to Robbie Williams, The Beatles to The Stones and many more legendary artists and bands.
GROUPER have fast become the first choice for those seeking fresh and entertaining music for their wedding reception, corporate event or party.
They have a wealth of experience, having entertained clients across the UK and Europe at a wide range of venues and high profile corporate events for the last four years.
GROUPER have hand picked an extensive repertoire of rock and pop songs, putting together two ‘live-wire’ sets of music to entertain all ages. They faithfully cover songs spanning five decades, from artists such as The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Van Morrison, James Brown, Tom Petty, Oasis, Paul Weller, Travis, The Stereophonics, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers, U2, Robbie Williams and Jet to name but a few! (See below for a more complete repertoire list) During the breaks between the live sets GROUPER provide mixed party CD’s, which they play through their PA system. The vocalist and guitarist are also available to perform an acoustic set earlier in the evening or during dinner if required.
GROUPER features four fantastic musicians who take pride in capturing the spirit and energy of the original artists they are covering. This ensures that you will always hear the classic songs performed to their full effect, often described as ‘just like the real thing’! (Check out their demo songs for the evidence!)
All the musicians have played at the highest level in the music industry, having performed with artists such as: Tony Hadley (Spandau Ballet), ABC, Go West, Bruce Dickinson (Iron Maiden) and Roger Daltrey (The Who).
GROUPER carry their own high quality PA system, which is suitable for most venues up to a capacity of 150 people. Should a larger system be required the band will happily arrange this and can obtain a very competitive price from their suppliers due to the large number of gigs they play each year. This option is often attractive to corporate clients who may prefer to leave arranging some of the technical setup to the band. GROUPER also supply basic stage lighting and can arrange more elaborate systems if required.
