The Rise are one of Cardiff premium Cover Bands for people looking for something a bit different.
Started out as a band called Pulse. We played all over Wales and the UK and beyond, including many high-profile gigs at venues such as the Cafe Royal.
The band quit for a few years around the time that our guitarist, Andy Cosslett, tragically died young. However we re-formed in 2010, changed the name to 'The Rise', with updated material and a very talented new guitarist, Ian.
Since then the band took another break during 2013 with the retirement of Kempton the lead singer and Tony the Drummer but Rob and Kris has joined bringing their own unique musicianship to the the band and 'The Rise' has risen again.
The Rise play a broad mix of modern covers, from Welsh bands such as Stereophonics to world-wide popular bands such as Muse, The Cult, Kings of Leon, The Killers, Green Day and even Pink Floyd -you name it. We are very versatile, but try to keep the mood rocky but upbeat.
We have our own PA so come fully equipped and cover in and around the South Wales area.
