Wyck Hill House Wedding

The CoverUps were very excited to visit and perform at Wyck Hill House Hotel & Spa for Peter and Gina’s wedding reception. Wyck Hill House is located in the heart of The Cotswolds, only an hour from the band’s HQ in Coventry. When we arrived to see this 4-star country house towering over a view of rolling hills, we could see why it is a popular venue amongst others in Gloucestershire. We definitely added another favourite wedding venue to our list!

The bride and groom requested The CoverUps play a variety of tracks from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s so we prepared our set list beforehand accordingly. The night kicked off with the couple’s unique first dance choice, Play A Dude by Thomas Grey which the band provided on an iPod to play through the PA. As the newlyweds swayed to the music, guests looked on lovingly and with cameras recording the special moment. The night was off to a great start!

As guests were encouraged onto the dance floor, the band took the stage with the classic Moondance by Van Morrison followed by Stuck in the Middle with You by Steelers Wheel. Peter, Gina and their guests kept the dance floor full late into the night and we couldn’t be more pleased to see that everyone enjoyed themselves.

Thank you so much, Peter and Gina for giving The CoverUps the pleasure of playing live music for your memorable wedding day. Congratulations to you both!!

Spring Wedding at Curradine Barns

On Wednesday, 23rd March the band made their way to The Curradine Barns in Shrawley for Adrianna and Todd’s wedding reception. It was a nice surprise to have a wedding mid-week as well as visit a venue new to the band! Curradine Barns is a truly picturesque wedding venue in the heart of the Worcestershire countryside. Just over an hours drive from Coventry where The CoverUps are based, it was an easy and enjoyable journey.

The band arrived at 6:00pm to set up our gear and grab a bite to eat. We jumped in on the hog roast which was suburb and gave us the energy we needed to put on a great show. Our stomachs were thankful!

To kickoff the night, the band played Wings by Birdy as requested by the bride and groom. Wings was a lovely track we enjoyed preparing for Adrianna and Todd and we could tell their family and friends loved it too! Immediately after, guests were encouraged onto the dance floor to join the newlyweds and we were on to a great evening!

A real favourite of the night had to be Uptown Funk lead by Christen and Adam on vocals. Everyone was on their feet bringing high energy into the room and pulling out their best dance moves. All in all it was a smashing night at a great venue we hope to return to soon!

We can’t finish this post without thanking our amazing sound technician, Zac. With his help, our set up, sound check, performance and pack down are made 10x easier. It is great to have him on board!

Ettington Park Wedding In March

Ettington Park, one of the best wedding venues in Warwickshire, was The CoverUps’ location for yet another fantastic wedding. This venue is not only a favourite of the band because it’s close to home, but because it has proven to be welcoming, accommodating and fitting for every wedding we have had the pleasure of playing at! Safe to say, The CoverUps were over the moon to be invited back for Elizabeth and Adam’s special day.

The band arrived at 6:00pm to set up and sound check. After a hearty meal provided by the hotel, the band were ready to play the bride and groom’s first dance choices, Time In A Bottle by Jim Croce and Stuck In The Middle Of You by Stealers Wheel. It wasn’t long before eager guests were encouraged to the dance floor and we jumped into our first set with Come Up And See Me by Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel.

With a mix of old time classics and current top chart tracks, the night went down a storm and we couldn’t be more pleased to see a dance floor full until the very end.

The band finished the night on a real high with Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis. And with that, we congratulated the bride and groom and called it a very successful night!

Congratulations once again Elizabeth and Adam. Thank you for inviting the CoverUps to play a part in your special day!

5-Piece Wedding At MoxHull Hall

On this special occasion, The CoverUps returned to Moxhull Hall for Joanne and Mark’s big day! Being one of the West Midland‘s most popular wedding venues, it was no surprise that Moxhull Hall was also the ideal location for this particular wedding celebration!

The band arrived at 6:00pm to set up and soundcheck. With a quick load in, we set the stage in ready time to eat our fill on chicken and chips- courtesy of the bride and groom! As speeches came to a close, we readied ourselves for the newlyweds first dance.

The couple chose Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran and I Loved Her First by Heartland as recorded tracks played by the venue’s DJ. The CoverUps came in immediately after with the first live song of the night and all guests were encouraged onto the dance floor. With Christen on female vocals we were able to add in a few favourite tracks by Taylor Swift and Meghan Trainer which really kept high energy in the room!

The band couldn’t have asked for a more lively night! It was great to see the bride and groom and their closest family and friends enjoying themselves and packing out the dance floor until the very end. Congratulations to this fantastic couple and we hope you enjoyed the night even more than The CoverUps did!

Enjoy a fully live highlight video of the night below…

Corporate Event In Nottingham Trent University

A nice change of plans for the band was playing live for a private corporate function held at Nottingham Trent University in the heart of Nottingham. Only an hours drive from the band’s home in Coventry, West Midlands, The CoverUps enjoyed the short travel!

The band arrived at the university at 5:30pm to set up their instruments in The Old Museum room. Loading our gear 100 metres through the library and down a flight of stairs was a feat The CoverUps are no stranger to! Thanks to our experience in playing in a variety of venues, we were able to set up and sound check in due time. Once the stage was set, we were pleasantly surprised with a 3-course meal each- what a treat! And with that, we kicked the night off with the classic Moondance by Van Morrison.

The night went on without a hitch and we couldn’t be happier to see guests enjoying themselves on the dance floor. A great night was had all in all!
