About Booking Alternative Bands

Alternative rock (or alternative music) began in the 1980s and became popular in the 1990s. Alternative icons include Nirvana, The Feelies, Violent Femmes and R.E.M., to name just a few. Alternative bands, including popular tribute bands and alternative music cover bands, are a perfect choice to hire for your club, private party, or wedding reception.

Some things to consider when hiring an Alternative Band are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to read reviews and get references. Talk to people in the area about the band and get feedback. Finally, get a contract. Many professional alternative bands require a deposit to secure them at your next event. Make sure to read through the contract carefully before contracting the band for your party.
