Only the hippest and coolest of cats know what exactly an “indie” band is... and that’s the point. Indie bands are those “undiscovered” groups that record for independent labels and play music that doesn’t fit in with the mainstream radio airwaves. GigSalad has many indie bands anxiously waiting to rock your event, whether it be a public concert, private party, or wedding reception. Some indie bands may play original music, covers from your favorite indie bands, or pay tribute to one particular indie band. Either way, an indie band is bound to make your event cooler than the rest!

About Booking Indie Bands
Indie music (or Indie Rock or Indie Alternative) is a subgenre of alternative rock music and emerged in the 1980s. Current groups that are widely known but still considered to be "indie" include Modest Mouse, Vampire Weekend, Death Cab for Cutie and MGMT. Original indie bands, tribute bands and cover bands are a great choice to hire for your club, private party, or public event.
Some things to consider when hiring an Indie 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 indie 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.
