Corporate Event In Birmingham Wraps Up June

To wrap up The CoverUps’ June wedding season the band returned to our sister-city, Birmingham, this time, for a corporate event at Holiday Inn! Just down the road from Coventry where the band resides, Birmingham has a variety of fantastic venues we would recommend. Holiday Inn is certainly one of them especially for corporate events as the venue can easily host 100+ guests.

The band arrived at 6:00pm to quickly set up and soundcheck. Once the stage was set, the band were treated to a hot chicken dinner which gave us the energy we needed to kick off the night with real energy! The CoverUps 4-piece band with a male lead vocalist was booked for the night. It was requested the band play a range of songs from 50s-80s mostly to appeal to an age range of 30-60 years. Of course, we didn’t mind one bit!

Popular tracks by The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Queen and Aha really got guests on the dancefloor. We ended the night on a high note with Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis which always goes down a treat. A successful, fun night all in all!

Summer Wedding At The Lynches In Shrewsbury

This wedding was a particularly special occasion for The CoverUps as the bride booked the band after hearing them perform at her sister’s wedding in 2014! Katie and James were married this June and celebrated with their friends and family at The Lynches in Shrewsbury, just an hour and a half from the band’s base in Coventry, West Midlands.

The band had an earlier start than usual- arriving at 4:00pm to set up and soundcheck before the wedding guests finished their meal. Typically the band play a total of two hours of live music unless otherwise requested. For their wedding reception, Katie and James asked the band to play for two and half hours which ended the night at 12:30am. The CoverUps were ready to party until the lights went out!

The bride and groom emailed the band before the wedding day and asked for a few of their favourite tracks to be included in the set lists. Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen was amongst a few of their favourites and The Boys Are Back In Town by Thin Lizzy was especially requested for the bride’s mum. A few other classics were also added including Summer Of ’69 by Bryan Adams and Shine by Take That. The bride had also requested Shake It Off by Taylor Swift for all the ladies in the room. We don’t normally add this song unless our 5-piece band is booked, however, we wanted to make this night a night to remember for the bride and groom so we threw it in our set list and everyone loved it!

After the band performed a live cover of the bride and groom’s first dance choice, You Belong To Me by Bryan Adams, guests joined the happy couple on the dance floor and we kicked off the night with Moondance by Van Morrison.

The newlyweds and their guests kept the dance floor full late into the night and we couldn’t ask for anything better! To top it all off, there was an amazing firework show that had everyone in awe. What a great way to end the night! Congratulations to James and Katie! Please enjoy a fully live highlight video from the night below… make sure to keep watching for footage of the fireworks!

Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa For A June Wedding

To kick off our June wedding season The CoverUps returned to Daventry, this time to Fawsley Hall Hotel & Spa for Samantha and James’ big day! Being one of the most popular wedding venues in Northamptonshire, it was no surprise that Fawsley Hall proved to be the perfect location for Samantha and James’ wedding celebration. The hall’s 17th century architecture and acres of garden and parkland were especially spectacular.

The band arrived at 6:00pm to set up and soundcheck. After a quick load in, we set the stage in due time for the music to start. The bride and groom booked a DJ to start the night so we had a bit of break before starting our first set. After the DJ’s set the band took to the stage with live covers of Marry You by Bruno Mars and Faith by George Michael as requested by the bride and groom.

Samantha and James had sent us their song requests before the wedding day so the band arranged sets based on the couple’s absolute favourite tracks. Daydream Believer by The Monkees, Don’t Stop Me Now by Queen and Take On Me by Aha were amongst other favourites.

The band couldn’t have asked for a more enjoyable night with a dance floor packed until the very end. Congratulations to this fantastic couple. We hope you enjoyed the night even more than The CoverUps did!
