THERE is one Newcastle five-piece cover band that is bringing something new to the table with its diverse range of instruments and unique style.
The Capulets feature the unparalleled sounds of the saxophone, harmonica and didgeridoo and it sets the band apart from many other cover artists.
Drummer and backup vocalist Matthew Smith said the instruments they used were not the only thing that made them different to other bands.
"One thing that does set us apart in the Newcastle cover band scene is that we're young and we bring something new to the table," Smith said.
Guitarist Peter Enks said the band aimed to create a fun atmosphere on stage with easy-listening tunes.
"We enjoy each other's company, and we don't take ourselves too seriously," Enks said.
The Capulets have established themselves at weddings, engagement parties and university gigs by performing songs other cover bands would not do.
Their audience can expect to hear covers of songs aired on Triple J, as well as a few mainstream crowd pleasers.
The band is also working on songs by Macklemore.
■ The Capulets are performing this Friday, February 8 at Music in the Podium, Warners Bay, 6pm.
