EPIC is a four-piece show band comprising of highly acclaimed, experienced, professional, full-time musicians with one main aim – playing the songs that other covers bands won’t! Alongside this vision, EPIC ensure all songs in the repertoire have been hits on a grand scale and/or have featured large scale production. All songs are played with accurate respect to the original, are performed professionally with class and flair and finally, all critical parts are represented along with strong vocal harmonies, whilst still allowing the members personalities to shine through.
This is all delivered through state-of-the-art sound and lighting production at every venue.
EPIC was first assembled as a concept act in late 2014 by…
