Bands in Cornwall like Animal I are different to regular covers bands or party bands you might find elsewhere.

Featuring original compositions drawing influences from diverse sources rock, jazz, world music and punk just to name a few.

Animal I don’t expect any pop hits any time soon but their song Snake Oil is certainly a contender. There are certainly one of the most original live bands in cornwall and at events create a real party band atmosphere.

Featuring drums, bass, guitar, sax and male lead vocals the cornish band has been writing and performing since 2009. The band is a regular at outdoor live events such as LETS Camp near Portreath, Cornwall and also often plays in the best independent live music venues in Cornwall including The Vault, Penzance, The Studio Bar in Penzance,  Charlie’s Bar, Redruth and Jacob’s Ladder, Falmouth.

Cornwall Bands

Live bands are in demand in Cornwall, every venue will have one or two live bands every weekend, sometimes a party band or a pop covers band.

The venues or promoters can find bands for hire to play at private parties or at a wedding ceremony easily by using one of the many directories or searching for cornwall bands in a search engine.

The kinds of music they are looking for is usually classic party anthems, hip hop or even contemporary pop with male and female vocals. A function band can work well for situations such as a wedding reception, at corporate events. Function bands tend to play well paid gigs where on the event date they will have a professional lighting and sound set up perhaps with a sound and lighting engineer specifically for the live event.

Party Band

If we payed classic rock we would not be a party band. No way.

A party band build up the excitement throughout the evening leading the audience through an emotional journey climaxing towards the end.

There are many live bands in cornwall that could be classified as a party bands that can play the night long without a break but the essential ingredients for the best cornwall bands are a killer repertoire and to be breathtaking live.

ANIMAL I GIG IN THE VAULT PENZANCE WITH DIET SPANGLE

 Playing live music events is what we love the most, never the same twice.

Animal I focus is on live music performance rather than studio work, and hence the  live band’s releases to date are recordings of live gigs. Most recently 4 tracks from a special evening at The Melting Pot Cafe in Redruth were mixed to form the new EP release ‘A Natural Selection’.

Just what you might hear depends on the environment and atmosphere, extended improvisations, ambient sounds effects as well as a stream of funny moments throughout the gig.

Animal I is one of the bands in cornwall that build up energy through the night taking the audience on a path  in the most dance crazed tunes and the legendary tune ‘Snake Oil’  just demands audience participation.
