An Overview Of Angel Up Front
Angel Up Front have been gigging regularly since 2002 as a female fronted four piece band, playing pop, indie, disco and classic rock covers. We have lots of experience of playing live, making friends with audiences and making sure they have as much fun as we can every time we play.
What We Play
We play Pop, Rock, Indie, a little Disco and a few other genres to add a little spice here and there.
Every song we play is a tried and road-tested crowd pleaser for audiences of all ages, from the Dandy Warhols to the Darkness, from Michael Jackson to Maroon 5, from Blondie to Bryan Adams and even from Gloria Gaynor to Guns’n’Roses.
Our line-up is:
Female lead vocalist
Bass & backing vocals
When appropriate we go out of our way to make a connection with audiences and get them involved in singing along, dancing, and sometimes even playing along with the band; sometimes we like to escape from the stage and join in the fun on the dance floor. Although we’re not a comedy act, our performances emphasis having fun as well as playing quality music.
We use some props so members of the audience can get involved whether it’s a tambourine or an inflatable guitar to play air guitar with.
We’re good with birthdays usually getting the whole audience to root for anyone who has one.
There is chat between some songs and some songs go straight from one to another to maintain continuity.
We will adapt our set list to suit our expected audience before the gig, but we are also flexible on the night as appropriate.
We play up to two and a half hours in any format a client wants but normally require at least one break. Usually, the longest single set we will play will be one and a half hours.
If a client has a special request we will accommodate it if we can. For example, we will learn requested songs if time permits, make special announcements, and we’re also happy to invite any clients who are also musicians to join the band for a few numbers; in general, if there’s something a client would like, we’ll do what we can.
Reliability & Ease Of Working Relationship
We pride ourselves on our reliability; since 2002 we have never been stopped by the weather and very seldom by illness.
We are well organised, and always aim to get in and out of venues with the minimum of fuss. We are proud of our reputation for being easy to work with, friendly and flexible; we love what we do, and we like to think that this comes across and makes the entire experience more enjoyable for everybody involved.
We have our own PA and lights suitable to play up to a medium sized venue of around 500+ people. If a larger PA is required then we can provide one for an additional fee or use one provided for us by the venue as appropriate.
We can play music between sets from our music player or from a client’s music player.

"On behalf of all the staff who came to the party on Saturday evening, thank you for making the evening such a roaring success. You were absolutely brilliant! Everyone enjoyed themselves thoroughly and you created the atmosphere we were hoping for. (I think there were a few sore heads on Sunday!) I’ve had so many comments about how great you were. We couldn’t have been happier with how everything went so a really big THANK YOU!
I hope that you can play for us again sometime.
Have a very happy Christmas and New Year.
