5-Piece Performance In 16th Century London

The CoverUps have traveled to London for numerous weddings before but rarely have the band had the privilege to play in venues so steeped in history as Skinners Hall located directly in the heart of the city. This historical 16th century building is rich in tradition and styled with paintings, coats of armour and period furniture. If you’re a bride or groom of English tradition and rich, elegant style, Skinners Hall would be a great venue for you. As if it were destined to be, Sophie and James Hewitt were the perfect bride and groom to suit a venue so elaborate as this one.

A Groovy Kind Of Love

Sophie and James did great ground work for us before their wedding day by sending us a list of their favourite songs from our repertoire. We pulled their set list together paying close attention to their preferred tracks and were confident it would go down a storm on the wedding day. We started the night with a live performance of the bride and groom’s first dance request, A Groovy Kind of Love by Phil Collins. The happy couple swayed to the music while their loved ones looked on endearingly.

Every Excuse To Celebrate

Soon after the party kicked off with a jam-packed dance floor and everyone singing along to Signed, Sealed Delivered I’m Yours- one of the most popular Stevie Wonder tracks known to wedding-goers. With an added female vocalist to make our 5-piece lineup we were able to bring out tracks such as Rehab, All About That Bass and Firework, just to name a few favourites from the girls side!

The night as a whole was one to be remembered. Not only were we in a historical building, we were celebrating a fantastic couple and having a blast performing some of our favourite tracks. We couldn’t ask for anything more!

The biggest Woot! Woot! and congratulations goes out to Sophie and James on this memorable day. We are privileged to have performed for your wedding reception and we hope you look back on the night with fond memories. Enjoy a few photos below!

A Rockin’ Barn Wedding In Coleshill, Birmingham

One of The CoverUps favourite West Midlands wedding venues has to be Shustoke Farm Barns. This fantastic venue just so happened to be the destination of Kirsty and Matthew’s wedding this past October. Only a short drive from the band’s HQ in Coventry, Shustoke Farm Barns sits in a rural part of Coleshill, Birmingham and is a popular venue among several near the area. The barn is distinct in itself with bold brick architecture, flagstone floors and a copper top bar. A stylish, rustic and chic venue to suit practically any wedding party. Check out some of the band’s previous weddings at Shustoke Farm Barns here!

Drink, Dance, Celebrate!

The recorded track, Kodaline by The One started the bride and groom’s first dance. Immediately after the band took the stage with the classic Moondance by Van Morrison followed by Stuck in the Middle with You by Steelers Wheel! Kirsty, Matthew and their guests kept the dance floor full the entire night which we always love to see! An abundance of drink, dance offs and the perfect excuse to celebrate lead us to describe the night in one word- FUN!

A break of pulled pork batches and cake at 9:00pm gave us the chance to rest our voices and the guests a chance to put their feet up before heading straight back to the dance floor for the band’s second set. We danced and sang until our voices were sore straight to the end with Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams bringing the night to a close.

Thank you so much, Kirsty and Matthew for giving The CoverUps the pleasure of performing on your memorable wedding day. Congratulations to you both! We hope you enjoy a few memories from the night…
