V12 is a premier covers band from the North East. Frontman Carl Pemberton achieved international success alongside his brother in Journey South after reaching the finals of hit TV show The X Factor in 2005. Since then, Carl has performed throughout the world, including for HRH The Prince of Wales on his 60th Birthday. Journey South's acclaimed debut album hit Number 1 in the Official Albums Chart, resulting in two hugely successful tours. In 2015, Carl formed V12 Premier Events Band, aiming to provide live music of the highest standard to prospective clients. Although V12 is a covers band, the songs that they play have their own style stamped all over them. The band is always expanding their repertoire of material from the 60s to the present day.

"We had the pleasure of hosting V12 Premier Events Band who performed in our clubhouse on what must have been the hottest day of the year. The band were absolutely fantastic, two rip roaring sets full of absolute classics. They were a very tight outfit with stunning vocals from Carl. They were an absolute pleasure to work with both on the day and during the lead up to the event." - Gateshead Rugby Club (Corporate Event)
"Fantastic band, great guys and perfect events band. Played at our daughter's wedding and had the place rocking all night. Best band to have with us to help end our special day on a high with lots of laughs and great fun. I would highly recommend these to anyone and would definitely hire them again for any event." - Abbey & Murray (Wedding)
"V12 saved our wedding. We got let down by another band weeks before our big day and V12 came highly recommended by another highly successful band. V12 re-jigged a date and bailed us out. They turned up in good time and were absolutely fantastic from start to finish. We had an acoustic version of 'Wonderwall' which was a 10/10 for our first dance. I can’t recommend these guys enough and I know they will be going on to bigger and better things. I wish them every success!!! 'Get them booked'." - Ian & Lesley (Wedding)
