The Strangers - Rock, Pop Covers Band

Catchy rhythms always get even the most reserved dancer up on their feet while the melodic harmonies are sure to add an extra touch of romance to the occasion. They are accustomed to providing DJ sets as well as live performances and are always happy to learn that special song for the first dance.

They play 50s - 00s covers in their own style - arranged to get your party going! They've opened for some of the UK's top signed acts, including Turin Brakes, Nizlopi, Dick Valentine (Electric Six), Duke Special, Fionn Regan, Teitur, Wheatus and Great Lake Swimmers. Last year they opened for Sandi Thom on her UK tour and appeared at two Bestival festivals alongside The Klaxons, Doves and Elbow.

More recently they were voted best unsigned band on XFM and won Best North East Band in The BT Battle of the Bands. They performed events for Newcastle Falcons Rugby Club and many companies, hotels and venues across the UK.

The Strangers - Rock, Pop Covers Band Feedback

The band were great, all the guests told me how good they were. They were brilliant.

Hi ..., I just wanted to write to you to again say a massive thank you for playing the song for Ian and Jess on Saturday, I really appreciated it and I know the couple themselves loved it. It was a great set and I think at some point of the night you had every single person up dancing! We all had a great time. All the best.

The band were fantastic! Everyone commented on how good they were and a lot of people asked how we had found them. They were all really friendly and quickly set up without any disruption to us or our guests. I would recommend them for anyone who is looking for a band and we have already passed their details on to one of our guests.We had a great night.... a massive thank you to the lads!!
