Welcome to the covers band The Robbers – playing the best music from the 1960s to the present day. The band has a great rapport with an audience and always attempt to live up to their cheesy tagline – ‘stealing the show’.
Based in Manchester and playing throughout the North of England, the Midlands and most of Wales, the band are available to book for weddings, birthdays, corporate events or any other celebration. Whatever the event your guests are bound to have a great time as they dance the night away.
The 4 piece band band features male and female lead vocals and they have worked hard to create a big sound, with great vocal harmonies and great musicianship. Instrument wise the band had guitars, drums, bass and keyboards.
The Robbers are usually asked to play 2 x 45 or 2 x 60 minute sets but can tailor the length and number of sets to your event. They can also play recorded music through their PA between sets if that’s desirable, saving you the cost of a DJ.
For performances they generally dress in black and white stripy T-shirts which makes them really stand out from the crowd although, as you can see from the images, they can dress more formally should the occasion call for it as well as dressing more casually if needed..
The Robbers are great value for money. Request a quote, tell us a bit about your event and what would work best for you.
