Large Portion [Rock Covers, 4 piece]
I've grown up around bands and have a big love for live music, and as an amateur musician myself I'm rather fussy! So trying to find a band for my 40th birthday party wasn't easy. I discovered The Large Portion on a band search website, and hadn't heard them live before. I certainly wasn't disappointed! Communication before my event was great. They arrived on time, had finished setting up when they'd promised to with a very professional looking kit! The dancefloor was rarely empty, every guest (aged 19 to 81) commented on their talent and great choice and range of songs. Brilliant covers, some nifty drum and guitar work and the singing was top notch. I couldn't have wished for a better band! I thoroughly recommend them and look forward to another event I can call on them to play. Thank you guys!

The Large Portion
This event was our Silver Wedding anniversary party and we booked Large Portion after seeing a gig at one of our local pubs. They made our party even more special than it already was, we choose some songs from their playlist and they chose the rest, all were preformed to the highest level and our guests aged from 21yrs to 60 did not stop dancing for the whole evening. Four days after the party I'm still getting messages saying thanks for a great night and what a fab band. Thanks Large Portion see you at the Lion Brewery soon.

Thank you so much for your comments Jo. We also enjoyed playing at your party and are pleased that it was such a success. Look forward to seeing you both again soon.
I have just seen the best covers band I have ever seen at the Belle Vue last night, The Large Portion. Not only are they fantastic musicians but have three amazing vocalists who could front any band. I initially went in for a pint but ended up staying all night. Absolutely loved the Tom Petty song. If you only see one band this year go see these guys!

Thanks Mick, We really appreciate your comments.Glad you enjoyed the evening and hope to see you again soon. We are in the process of sorting some more dates in the Belle Vue.
Great night at the Unicorn! Large Portion were excellent, playing so many of my old favourites and sounding very much like the original versions. Not only can they play really well, but they have three members that can sing pretty good too. Bass player reminds me of McCartney, but he can sing better than he can these days. Amazing lead guitar, especially on Freebird! I'm learning to play guitar, watching these guys has made me realise how much I need to learn! Thanks guys for a great evening, see you next time.

Quality playing and chararcter - look forward to seeing you again soon, I would highly recommend the band as a great night out. Thank you
