“Let’s all meet up in the year 2000.
Won’t it be strange when we’re all fully grown?
Be there 2 o’clock by the fountain down the road.
I never knew that you’d get married.
I would be living down here on my own.
On that damp and lonely Thursday years ago.”
Common People lyrics:
“Sing along with the common people,
Sing along and it might just get you through,
Laugh along with the common people,
Laugh along even though they’re laughing at you,
And the stupid things that you do,
Because you think that poor is cool.”

Do you REALLY want to book an actual full on proper Oasis tribute band for your wedding reception though? One that only plays songs by Creation Records label saviours Oasis?

Thinking it though it’s probably not going to be all that suitable for most of your guests is it. No, exactly.

Happy birthday to us. Today Britpop Reunion is/are (I never know which one it is) 5 years old. Today is five years to the day that 90’s and Britpop tribute band ‘Britpop Reunion’ performed live in a venue together for the very first time. We formed in 2014 and it sure has been wild ride for all involved.
We’d like to thank everyone who has booked and supported us over the years as their 90s birthday party band, 90’s wedding band , 90’s party band or live event band.
What our 90s Birthday Party Band set out to achieve.
As with any business thats been around as long as ours people come and people go. You live, you learn, you love, you win some, you lose some but most of all you have to evolve. We weren’t the first Britpop tribute 90’s birthday party band out there by any means, but we did instantly take it to the next level. We felt that it could all be done a lot better than what was around at the time. It could sound better and it could look better with much higher quality promotional videos and web content.
Our tribute band is run like a very tight ship…..like a a high-end wedding & party band. We created a professional sound and stage show, something which was sorely missing in our chosen genre of music. Wearing a union jack t-shirt on stage (Or union jack shoes…ugggg) performing 15 Oasis songs and claiming to be “Authentic 90’s” just wasn’t going to be good enough for us.
We combined period guitars with original 90’s clothing and utilised the latest in sound and lighting technology available. We jumped around on stage enjoying ourselves rather than standing still glued to the spot. It gave us a huge edge over any other Britpop 90’s tribute band out there.
How our promotional material is miles ahead of anyone else’s.
With promotional material we thought long and hard about how we wanted to convey what the band were all about before ever hitting record on a video camera. We spent many hours working out where to take decade appropriate promotional photos before pressing the shutter button. We didn’t just stand in front of the mens toilets at a local pub and have our mate take a picture with his camera phone and call that “Promo”.
Our live promotional videos speak for themselves. 100% live audio with multiple camera angles. Showing not only the amount of fun the band have while on stage but also guests honest and open reactions too….We’re smiling with you, not scowling at you. No other 90’s tribute band were producing videos of this quality and they still aren’t to this very day. Why? Because its a LOT of hard work to set up, edit and get right. We thoroughly embrace the written Blog and video Vlogs. They are a great insight as to what happens when clients book us for their events. Again this all takes a LOT of effort.
What we have achieved in the last five years.
We have achieved absolutely everything we set out to achieve over the last five years and so much more. We’ve headlined festivals to over 4000 punters and played at countless private parties, weddings and birthday parties. Also we’ve performed for 500+ guests at corporate events, sold out 750 tickets at our 90’s events and sent students crazy at university parties. Its never bothered us if we perform to 50 people or 5000 people. We always put on the same amazing show. Being a professional band we charge a premium for our services. Unlike most other 90’s tributes we won’t accept low paid work, nor will we work for “Exposure pounds”. We are worth more than this and most importantly our time is worth more than this to us.
Over the years we’ve been copied and ripped off left right and centre by wannabes. Its actually been fun to watch. Most of the “Competition” have no idea how to successfully run a professional band. They simply do not realise the hours a day/week/month/year that need to be put in to be a successful band. We’ve watched similar acts come along – mouth off about how they are “The Best” (In that none humbling Noel Gallagher esque manner) – not manage to get any decent paid work as they dont have the chops or promotional material to back up their claims (Dodgy mobile phone footage with distorted audio is not quality promotional material). Most then discover it really is too much effort to compete with us and we watch the bands collapse in on themselves.
The future of 90s Birthday Party Band ‘Britpop Reunion’.
The future for ‘Britpop Reunion’ holds much more of the same that we’ve achieved over the last 5 years. We will continue to charge a premium to perform at weddings, parties, corporate events and festivals. As the saying goes “You get what you pay for“. We will continue to perfect and evolve and strive to keep on pushing forward with what you should expect to see and receive from a high end tribute band. We are at the top of our game and up there with the best professional tribute acts in the country. As much as we hate the term, we really are the UK’s only “Premium” Britpop & 90s tribute band out there. Claims we really can back up through our videos, images, reviews and the flow of high end work we are consistently booked for.
So here’s to 2020, 2021 etc and another five years of being a successful 90’s tribute band helping clients relive the best decade of music ever. If you’ve booked us before, thanks for trusting a professional party band. If you’re reading this because you’re considering booking our 90’s live band then you’ll be in good hands.
You probably didn’t even know that ‘Britpop Reunion‘ also perform as a Harry Potter band did you? We perform all three songs featured in The Goblet Of Fire film including Do The Hippogriff, Magic Works and This Is The Night as well as handling your live entertainment throughout the whole event. So thats Harry Potter music plus amazing pop tunes sorted for the whole of your Harry Potter event. We even perform live at Harry Potter themed weddings too. Contact to check on price and availability.
The only Harry Potter band to appear on stage with actual cast members.
Here we are with actual cast members live on stage with us performing “Do The Hippogriff” featuring Chris Rankin (Percy Weasley, brother of Ron Weasley), Jon Campling (Death Eater) & Chris Rithin (Dudley Dursley’s gang member) at a Harry Potter convention. There’s no other band on the planet with these kinds of Harry Potter credentials. Go on, check out the video below, it will make you smile.
Re-enact the Yule Ball Dance at Hogwarts

Hermione Granger dances with Viktor Krum and Ron Weasley dances with…well no one because he doesn’t like his dress robes? Imagine recreating something like that and book our Harry Potter tribute band to perform at your Harry Potter themed event. Speaking of that dance, do you know the EXACT date of the dance? Its 25th December 1994. Do you know who was at number one in the UK charts on that exact date? It was East 17 with ‘Stay Another Day’. Have a look at the rest of the top 10 on that date.

Being a Supergrass Fan
Andy Starkey, lead singer and bass player from Britpop Reunion has been a huge fan of Supergrass his whole life. He even remembers the first time he heard ‘Richard III’ on the radio
“It was about February 1997 and I was driving to my rehearsal studio that I had in Wolverhampton at the time. I was driving around the Cannock McDonalds islands towards Wedges Mills. I had BBC Radio One ‘The Evening Session’ on (presented by Steve Lamacq and Jo Whiley) in my little Mini. The crummy Sony cassette car radio was doing its best to stay tuned into the song Richard III. I didn’t even know it was a Supergrass I was listening to”.
“I said to myself “Wow, this new Smashing Pumpkins song is amazing”. Then Steve says after the song finishes “And that was the new single from Supergrass”…..My mind was blown. This was a huge departure in sound for Supergrass from their debut album I Should Coco. I knew ‘In It For The Money’ was going to be something very special and different that I just had to own.”
Andy first saw Supergrass with The Bluetones supporting on Saturday 18th February 1995. As you will see below he still has the original poster that he “Borrowed” from off the wall in Rugeley Red Rose Theatre.
Throughout the years Andy saw Supergrass on many, many more occasions. He picked up lots of great memorabilia including this very limited edition Chinese design tea towel.
Supergrass Tribute studio recording of Alright
Have a listen to our very own studio recording of Alright by Supergrass below. You’ll find its a very close match to the original performed with all the fun and charm of Gaz Coombes, Danny Goffey, Mick Quinn and Rob Coombes.
Maybe one day ‘Britpop Reunion’ might add in some of Supergrass’s other greatest hit songs too like:
Sun Hits the Sky
Pumping on Your Stereo
Caught by the Fuzz
‘Britpop Reunion’ also perform tonnes of other massive Britpop repertoire hits like Don’t Look Back In Anger, Parklife, Day We Caught The Train, Rocks, Wonderwall, Country House and more. You really will be back in the 90’s when you book our 90’s tribute band.
