Desperately Seeking Talented Function Bands as Alive Network Becomes a Victim of its Own Success

STOKE-ON-TRENT, England, February 27, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- The UK's largest online live music booking service is desperately seeking professional function bands having nearly sold out of their own rock and pop party bands.

Despite the doom and gloom forecasts, UK brides, party organisers and corporate event teams are booking live music for events in 2013 more than ever before, resulting in a boom in requests for rock and pop wedding bands at Alive Network.

As the summer wedding season approaches, the UK's leading live entertainment booking service Alive Network has found itself rapidly running out of its most popular function bands for hire. Demand has been so great this year that Alive are now urgently seeking new 4 and 5 piece rock and pop party bands to sign up to its exclusive roster, with gigs available on weekends throughout the spring and summer months.

Rich Hearn, head of Artist Management and Development at Alive Network, is keen to help bands take on the challenge of a full work diary! "At Alive Network, we really are the victim of our own success. The function bands we represent are in constant demand for parties and events across the UK.

"It's no surprise to us that so many clients want these bands to provide fun, energy and great entertainment at their events. What has been a surprise is just how many clients have booked already for summer 2013, and talented though our bands are, even they can't be in two places at once! "Wanted! Alive are looking for 4 to 5 piece guitar based rock and pop function bands to join their agency, with gigs available all summer at weddings, parties, summer balls and black tie dinners. Bands will need their own PA system, lighting and transportation, and be available to work UK wide. Bands interested in joining the UK's most successful online live entertainment agency should submit their details to, or are welcome to call the agency on 0845 094 9761 and talk to any of the team.

"So, come on function bands of Britain, there are people waiting to book you today!" Managing Director of Alive Network, Dave Bevan, says it's an opportunity not to be missed for young British bands.

"I'd encourage all up and coming bands to send us their details and who knows, they could be entertaining hundreds of happy partygoers during the summer with Alive Network! This is a fantastic opportunity for good bands to earn decent money. Our top performing bands are earning over £120K a year playing at functions." In 2011, Alive Network refitted its own recording studio at the company's offices in Staffordshire, a state of the art studio where bands and musicians can record their demo tracks and videos using the best mics, pre-amps and a collection of boutique guitars and amps. The company also uses a local photography studio for professional photos.

This comprehensive package of care for UK artists is unique amongst UK online live entertainment booking agencies. It supports many talented function bands and cover bands in their professional development from local bands to major UK event bands invited to play at weddings, private events and corporate functions all over the UK and further afield.

Alive Network is the UK's largest live music and live entertainment service, with over 4000 experienced musicians, bands and groups on its books. Specialising in wedding function bands, party bands and corporate entertainment, Alive Network also offers a diverse range of musical styles, from classical to mariachi bands, Bollywood to big band, opera singers to bagpipers.
