New Year’s Eve At Lainston House Hotel

The CoverUps were very excited when Sarah from Exclusive Events asked to book the band for the second time for their New Year’s party at Lainston House Hotel. We had such a fun time playing live music at this stunning 5 star hotel last year, we couldn’t wait to return for another epic night!

At the very start of our first set, the guests were already filling the dance floor and raising their glasses to a memorable night. No warm up needed for this lot! The band continued to play through classics such as Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder and Jonny B Goode by Chuck Berry which kept the high energy going right up until the break.

As the clock started ticking to the end of 2015, we played through the last couple songs The CoverUps will ever play that year which included Don’t Stop Believing by Journey and a favourite record, Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis. With a roaring countdown to the new year, and a coordinated playing of Big Ben’s chimes by the DJ, 2016 was welcomed with an eruption of cheers and applause, drinks in the air and hugs all around. To top it all off, the band played the traditional tune Auld Lang Syne to bring the night to a perfect end.

Here’s to another great year of celebration! Happy New Year!!

Christmas Celebration at Wroxall Abbey

On this particular winter day, The CoverUps returned yet again to Wroxall Abbey, located just down the road from the band’s home base in Coventry. Though the band have performed for numerous weddings at Wroxall Abbey before, it was great to perform live music for a Christmas party this time!

Festive joy was in the air from the moment we arrived. Bubbly was poured, the welcoming scent of holiday treats met our hungry stomachs and we were greeted warmly by smiling faces. We were certainly in for a good time!

We arrived at the venue at 6:00pm sharp to set up and played recorded music in the background for the bride and groom’s evening meal. With instruments ready, we played our first set at 9:30pm when everyone was ready to put their dancing shoes on. Having a cosy number of around 70 guests attending, it was a relaxed atmosphere while guests enjoyed swaying to the music, chatting with their friends and keeping their glasses full to the brim!

As requested, we added a couple Christmas classics into our set list which ended the night on a real high. As we packed down for the night, we provided recorded music until 1:00am while guests said their goodbyes and wished one another Merry Christmas.

Overall, it was a fantastic night that we all thoroughly enjoyed! Until next time, Wroxall Abbey!

Burford Bridge Hotel Christmas Party

This Christmas, the band traveled eastward towards Surrey for a Christmas Party held at Burford Bridge Hotel in Dorking. Associated with Mercure Hotels, Burford Bridge Hotel is an excellent venue with a wide range of accompanying options for weddings, corporate functions and parties such as this one!

The band started the night with the famous hit, Valerie by Amy Winehouse which never fails to get people on the dance floor. Immediately following was Stuck In The Middle With You and the old time favourite, Sweet Home Alabama to really get things going! The CoverUps do love performing at weddings, however, equally love a good ol’ festive bash in the holidays!

Big thanks to Crescendo for booking the band for your Christmas Party. Merry Christmas! We hope to see you again next year!

Thomas And Andy’s Wedding at Antsy Hall

Just down the road from the band’s home town, Coventry, we arrived at The Orangery at Antsy Hall for Thomas and Andy’s wedding. The CoverUps came well prepared having rehearsed the grooms’ first dance request, Gold Forever by The Wanted. Thomas and Andy encouraged all of their guests onto the dance floor for their first dance which made for a perfect start to the evening!

Ansty Hall did a fantastic job of decorating the ballroom for Thomas and Andy. Balloons were everywhere! The night was full of energy yet laid back at the same time. This allowed the newlyweds to chat to their guests while also enjoy the disco between the band’s sets and rock it out on the dance floor as soon as we started playing again!

Queen Of Pop

Tracks such as Domino by Jessie J and Poker Face by Lady Gaga were added thanks to an additional female vocalist, Christen, as part of our 5-piece band. We always love having an extra vocalist with us. It means we can add female-lead tracks and dive into the favourited pop tracks on our repertoire. We would definitely recommend booking our 5-piece band if you’re keen on pop!

The night went down like a storm. We couldn’t ask for anything more than a full dance floor and everyone enjoying themselves- and that is exactly what we had. We also managed to grab a few photos from the night which you can browse below. We hope you enjoy and think of us if you’re getting married at Antsy Hall anytime soon!

Memorable Wedding At The Manor House Hotel

A few minutes drive from Guildford town centre in Surrey sits The Manor House Hotel and Spa where the band had the pleasure of playing live music for Michelle and Ian’s evening wedding reception. The CoverUps have visited the London area to play for several weddings before, however it was the band’s first time visiting The Manor House and we hope it won’t be our last!

The wedding venue went above and beyond for this bride and groom’s special day. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable making for an excellent start to the night’s festivities!

The party started with the happy couple’s first dance choice, You Are The First, My Last, My Everything by Barry White and the band followed the dance with Marry You by Bruno Mars as guests were encouraged to join the bride and groom on the dance floor.

With a set list packed with all time classics and some of today’s latest hits, everyone took to the dance floor and kept the energy going late into the night! It sure was a special celebration to be remembered!

Congratulations Michelle and Ian on your very special day! The CoverUps are honoured to have been a part of it!
