Welcome to the XL5 website


XL5 are an experienced, professional and affordable five piece covers band from Greater Manchester.

First a question: have you been to a lot of events and functions over the years? Now be really honest: how many do you remember as being truly special and memorable?

A DJ and a buffet are fine, but if you want your event to be extra special, then book a band who will ensure it is a little different and completely memorable.

We pride ourselves on performing ‘close-to-the-original’ covers ranging from 60’s classics by The Beatles and The Kinks via the "Madchester" sound of The Smiths, James, Oasis and the Stone Roses; right up to the ‘noughties’ with rock/pop/indie dance-floor fillers such as The Killers, Stereophonics & Pulp. We sometimes even throw in the odd surprise!

We think it is important to provide an entertaining and varied set that all ages present will feel part of, thus ensuring that your special event becomes one that everyone remembers and enjoys.

If you have any special requests, such as an "our song" favourite, we will do our best to keep you happy.

It’s your event – you’re in charge!

Contact us today using the contact form or by telephone to discuss your requirements - we will do our best to tailor an event just for you.

Testimonials

 

"Just a quick note to say thank you so much for Saturday night!! Everything was brilliant, from the music at the start to your sets and the disco music at the end.
We had so many great comments about you and everyone enjoyed it. Thanks for getting everyone up dancing and playing my favourite (slightly obscure) songs on the playlist.
You really made my party - thanks again!!"

Sue B - January 2018

 

"I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for the gig you played on Saturday, for my husband’s 50th birthday party.  It was absolutely brilliant, and loads of my family and friends have commented on how great you were - you certainly got us all up dancing!! Thank you too, for allowing our Emma to play keyboards at the beginning, it was really special and both Stewart and I had a tear in our eyes.

I really just wanted to say you made the night and we really appreciate all you did.  I would definitely recommend your band to anyone."
