ABOUT US

Bursting onto the entertainment scene in 2014, John Cooper Band performed together for the first time and wowed crowds at the 2014 World Snooker Final afterparty, sharing performances with World Champion Mark Selby and Iron Maiden’s Nicko McBrain. 6 years later here we are – John Cooper Band – still a highly acclaimed and sought after 4-piece party band based in the Northwest of England.

We are professional musicians with a huge choice of music, the skill to match, and have had the privilege of providing entertainment at most venues in the Northwest.

There are hundreds of party bands around, so talk to us about any concerns you have in picking the right band for your function.

YOUR EVENT

As a party band John Cooper Band provide entertainment at weddings, birthdays, anniversaries and corporate functions. We play the UK over, always dress to impress, and understand that you only get one chance to make your event go down in history.
Leading up to your event, we will keep in touch with you regarding your song choices and venue logistics and upon arrival are courteous, liaise with any event organisers and seamlessly integrate.
Our load-in load-out times are roughly 60 minutes either side of the gig, depending upon how easy it is to access the staging area. Our experience says it is most advisable to allow us into the space during the day (providing it is not in use, or we can also screen it off) so we are able to make the most of setup time.
We are not just any old party band, we are John Cooper Band. We are the sound engineer, the stage cleaners, the lighting technicians, the tour-grade crystal-clear sound system, you could say THE WHOLE PACKAGE! More-so we are respectful to those around us. We keep the stage free of clutter. Wires are hidden and we make sure everything feels right – the stage position, the soundcheck, the lighting. No problem to incorporate your colour palette into our lighting setup giving that extra WOW factor and a more personal feel.

SAFE PRACTICE

During these unprecedented times we are working hard not only to expand our repertoire but in taking steps to keep within the latest government guidelines for COVID-19 safe practice. Firstly we have introduced transparent vocal mic screens – these are acoustic perspex shields 18″ in diameter and sit at the base of the microphone to limit the transmission of projected particles. Secondly, all of our equipment is sanitised before and after each use. 

Penultimately, and very unfortunately, we can no longer accept song requests on the night, or share our performance with any guest wanting to sing with the band until further notice. 

Finally, and most importantly with thanks to You, our reputation speaks for itself. We always go the extra mile to help you have the best time possible because we want to have the best time possible.

Benjamin John

The John Cooper Band played at our wedding and they were AMAZING!! Their communication beforehand was excellent. Greg – accommodated my setlist requests with no problems.

They arrived on time and set up with no hassle. I was a little nervous of hiring a band over the Internet (I’d never seen them live before!) but I need not have worried – the dance floor was packed – they are fantastic musicians with a repertoire to suit all tastes. We were singing and dancing along and had the best time!

John Cooper Band played at my wedding in May and they were absolutely incredible! Very professional and easy to deal with leading up to the day. They accommodated absolutely everything I wanted for the setlist and they sounded awesome!!

WHAT PAYMENT METHODS DO YOU ACCEPT?

You can pay your balance by Card or Bank Transfer. Our standard payment terms are a £100.00 deposit with the balance due on the last working day before the event. We do also offer a payment plan which allowS you to spread the cost of the booking into 4 equal payments between the date of confirmation and up to 24 hours prior to the event. These are completely interest free and because it’s a payment plan rather than credit, doesn’t require a credit search or affect your Experian rating.

At a push we can do it in under 1 hour, depending on different circumstances (size of venue, ease of access, lighting required etc.

CAN YOU PLAY IN VENUES WITH NOISE LIMITERS?

Yes. In all truth they are not ideal but we are finding out that more and more venues are installing them so we learn to deal with them. As long as we know in advance so we can make sure the equipment that we bring is geared for a venue with a limiter.

HOW MANY MEMBERS ARE IN THE BAND?

We are a 4-piece band. drums, bass, piano, guitar. 2 singers.

CAN WE SEE YOU PLAY LIVE BEFORE WE BOOK?

Due to the nature of our work we only play a handful of public gigs each season. Please follow our facebook page to be informed of any upcoming public gigs. www.facebook.com/johncooperband

WILL YOU LEARN A SONG FOR US?

Anything's possible. We are happy to consider learning a song for you. At the time of booking us, please let your agent know if there’s a particular song you’d like us to consider learning so we have enough time to learn it well.

HOW FAR WILL YOU TRAVEL?

UK wide and internationally if required. Reasonable travel costs need to be covered if travel time is over 1.5 hours.

CAN I PICK THE BANDS PLAYLIST?

We are more than happy for you to pick which songs from our repertoire are played, but we do prefer to be left to decide the order in which they are played. It is usually best if you let us know any songs you definitely DO or DON’T want rather than a hard and fast list that we feel obliged to not deviate from should the mood require it.

HOW MUCH SPACE DO YOU NEED?

We typically need a performance area of 5m(w) x 4m(d), but we are able to squeeze into a minimum area of 4m(w) x 3m(d) if space is limited. We have performed in a variety of venues from manor houses and hotels, to barns, marquees, arenas, ball rooms and intimate clubs so we’re well versed in making the most of whatever space is available to us.

In a word, yes! Please give us a list of songs you want and also songs you do not and let us do the rest. Most clients are happy to put their own Spotify playlists through our PA from a device.

WHAT ARE THE BANDS POWER REQUIREMENTS?

We are usually fine running on one 13a ring-main in smaller venues as we do not need as much volume or lighting. Ideal if we can split between multiple ring-mains to reduce the load on single sockets. A member of the band is a qualified spark (electrician) and always carries out a recce on arrival. Larger venues we would prefer 16a outlets if possible but we can run again from multiple 13a ring-mains.
