Welcome to the official Waiting for Katherine website

High energy, sing-along tunes with rampant riffs and a mouthy frontman. Previous winners of Battle of the Bands at The Horn, St. Albans and twice in the three winning bands in Hertfordshire's Music City Unsigned.


Waiting for Katherine took the local scene by storm in an amazingly short period of time. They had won Battle of the Bands 17 at The Horn within a few months of getting together, and since then have built on their reputation as one of the best and certainly most enjoyable live bands in the area, with regular headlining slots at local venues. WFK combine heavy pop-punk riffage with sing-along choruses, a quirky sense of humour, the occasional darker moment and an absolute focus on not taking themselves too seriously. With the most enthusiastic frontman for miles around, no Katherine gig can ever be described as dull - just ask any one of their many loyal followers.

The sun shone! The crowds were happy. The drink and ice cream flowed, as did the riffs! What was not to like about Croxfest on Saturday September 2nd? We had a great time playing our short but energetic set and were really grateful to have been a part of such a great afternoon.  Thanks to all involved.

June 2017

On a blazing hot, humid Monday (19th June) we graced the stage once again at The Horns in Watford. Following a brilliant set by James Chapman and the Blue Moon, we delivered a fast paced (note: faster than usual) set, consisting of mainly our lighter tunes. Technical issues abounded, but I guess that's all part of the live experience, and we had a blast. Thanks, as always, to Pete Curtis and Oxygen at the Horns for having us. We'll be back on stage in October, if not before!
