Extreme Rendition is contemporary covers trio offering a truly versatile performance. Tackling a unique and appealing selection of indie-rock, pop & hip-hop hits from the early 90s to today, they can strip down to the bare basics for a laid-back acoustic session, or plug-in and amp-up to bring your party to a rousing climax.
Simply put, this band will blow your socks off. They specialise in the best tunes of the last 30 years. Stripped down, funked up and brought to life by two fantastic frontmen, hot guitars and bass, tasty rhythms and tight harmonies.
Taken as an unplugged Acoustic Trio, or an amped-up three-piece Rock Band, they deliver extraordinary renditions from the genres of Indie-Rock, Pop, Rap & Hip-hop, plus a few golden oldies thrown in to boot. All killer and no filler. From the cool and eclectic, to the downright epic. And always tasteful… they like to leave the cheese course to the caterers.

The Musicians – Extreme Rendition
But when three musicians spend over a decade on the road together – performing for audiences from 20 to 20,000, honing their act, exploring every nuance of their show night after night and developing their parts instinctively so they breathe as one unit – what happens is something else: Intuition. Symbiosis. Power.
Matt – Lead Vocals, Electric Guitar/Acoustic Guitar
