Break Cover are a Salisbury / Salisbury Plain based covers band. We play classic rock and rock and roll from the 60s to the present day.
We have a drummer who sings as well as a being fronted by a female lead vocalist. We formed in 2012 and were immediately popular in the local area owing to the experienced nature of the musicians involved.
Featuring classic favourites by The Black Keys, Bryan Adams, Blondie, David Bowie, The Bangles, Tina Turner, ZZ Top, Joan Jett, Katy Perry and many, many more, Break Cover are a lively, energetic band renowned for our quality performances and our ability to keep the dance floor moving. That is our main focus – getting the audience to dance, to sing-a-long and have a great time!
In 2016 Break Cover supported John Coghlan’s Quo at the Barrington Theatre Ferndown. John Coghlan joined Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in their newly-formed band in 1962 and the group went through a series of names, including Traffic Jam, before meeting up with Rick Parfitt and becoming Status Quo in the late 60s.
At the Salisbury Music Awards 2015 not only were we voted Best Covers Band for the second year in a row, Craig won the award for Best Drummer too! Because these awards are voted on entirely by the public this is completely down to you so we would like to thank all our supporters, fans, Facebook followers and Fandals for voting for us as Salisbury’s Best Covers Band in 2014 and 2015!
As well as music venues and clubs, we are available for and really enjoy playing birthday celebrations, weddings, functions and corporate events.
DISCLAIMER: We are a rock band with a live drummer using a real drum kit. We are not ear piercingly loud but neither are we ‘stereo in the corner’ quiet. Before booking us please check out our videos for the kind of things we play and the volumes we play at. Our volume is limited by the drum kit as we can’t turn that down.
Break Cover are supported by Burcombe Cars, Amesbury Printing and Steele Signs.
