Mumford and Sons Style Bands
Mumford and Sons single-handedly introduced the concept of combined folk and pop music to a whole new audience. The mix of driving and dance-able rhythms and fantastically hooky choruses explains the massive popularity of this genre. In fact this is the only specifically band related category that we have on the entire Hireaband web site, all 2000 pages of it!
Because of the wide appeal of Mumford and Sons and the variety and scope of the music they produce, it can be difficult to define exactly what a Mumford and Sons style band really is. So how did we decide on which bands to list here for your consideration? Well, first of all, we looked at the songs each band has at its disposal. That may seem obvious but getting it right has as much to do with how a song is performed as it is with which songs are performed. After all, most pop covers bands will include some Mumford and Sons style songs in their set, but to get it spot on, the feel, the approach and of course the instruments all play a huge part in delivering that festival sound that is so popular.
We're fortunate at Hireaband that we get the opportunity to get to know the bands we work with so well. We're not a remote central office dealing with bookings from Lands End to John O'Groats. Instead we have offices local to you that allows us to get to know those bands on a personal level. That means that when we were considering which bands to offer in this section of our web site, we all got together and had a good old chat about it. We hope you're happy with the selection of bands we've come up with. We think that when it comes to Mumford and Sons or Festival style bands, this is a selection where you can't really go wrong.
Browse the bands, listen to the demos, watch the videos and read the reviews. Go with your gut and choose the band that appeals most to you. Above all, don't overthink it. If the vibe seems right, the band is right. That's the whole ethos of bands like this anyway; a more relaxed and laid back approach but with absolutely stunning music that will delight you and all of your guests.
