Marquee Wedding At Tiltridge Farm

Our final wedding of July this year saw The CoverUps 4-piece band at Tiltridge Farm for Davina and Tom’s big day! The band arrived at the farm located just outside Worcester, about an hour and twenty minutes from the band’s HQ in Coventry, to see a magnificent marquee set on the gorgeous grounds of a private home.

After a quick load in around the back of the marquee, the band set the stage in time for the bride and groom’s first dance. The original recorded track of Baby I’m Yours by Arctic Monkeys was the newlyweds first dance choice which we played through our PA. What a brilliant track to start the night!

Soon after, guests joined the happy couple on the dance floor and we turned up the notch with Stuck In The Middle With You by Stealers Wheel and Marry You by Bruno Mars. We finished our first set with the guests egging the band on for more. Luckily Davina and Tom had arranged for traditional Albanian music to be played during the interval which kept the party going- to say the very least! The CoverUps have performed as a live wedding band for over a decade and this was still a first for us!

The night carried on with high energy and a packed dance floor. Our third and final set finished with Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis as requested by the bride and groom. It proved to be the perfect tune to end the night.

Congratulations to Davina and Tom! We hope you enjoyed the night even more than The CoverUps did!

Elvetham Hotel Wedding In July

Nearing the end of our July 2016 wedding season, The CoverUps arrived at Elvetham Hotel in Hartley Wintney, Hampshire to play live music for Fiona and Andy’s wedding day. The band have played at Elvetham Hotel once before so it was a pleasure to return this year! Much more than a hotel, this wedding venue is a 16th-century mansion with converted stables and an elegant interior perfectly suitable for wedding celebrations. A very popular Hampshire wedding venue located between Basingstoke and Woking, it’s no surprise it was Fiona and Andy’s first choice for their big day.

The CoverUps 4-piece band were booked to play for 2 hours during the wedding reception. We started the night playing the recorded Ed Sheeran track, Thinking Out Loud, through our PA at the request of the bride and groom. It proved to be the perfect start to the night!

Soon enough guests were encouraged onto the dance floor and the night was off to a great start with Stuck In The Middle With You by Steelers Wheel and Crazy Little Thing Called Love by Queen. A few other favourite hits of the night included Hard Day’s Night by The Beatles and Satisfaction by The Rolling Stones. You can’t deny the classics!

What’s better than playing to a full dance floor with guests drinking, dancing and enjoying themselves? Ending the night on Rule The World by Take That! The track was requested by the newlyweds especially and we couldn’t have ended the night on a better note!

Congratulations to Fiona and Andy on this very special day and thank you for booking The CoverUps as your live wedding band!

Holly And Paul’s Summer Wedding At Hampton Manor

On this warm July day, The CoverUps were invited to play live music for Holly and Paul’s summer wedding at the renowned, Hampton Manor in Solihull. The band love playing at this fantastic wedding venue located just down the road from Coventry where the band are based. The staff of Hampton Manor are welcoming and accommodating plus, on a practical note, it is an easy load in for the band and the venue itself is stunning with historical architecture and beautiful gardens to set the scene. No wonder it is such a popular wedding venue in the Birmingham and Warwickshire area.

The CoverUps were booked to play for 2 and a half hours which is 30 minutes over the usual time, but we didn’t mind one bit! The bride and groom requested a few of their favourite tracks to be played including Marry You by Bruno Mars and Faith by George Michael which immediately followed their first dance. The CoverUps prepared Dignity by Deacon Blue as the couple’s first dance and the preparation pulled off. The newlyweds and their wedding guests loved it and the band enjoyed having a bit of a fun grooving with the track.

The dance floor was filled with guests drinking, dancing and enjoying themselves late into the night. To top it all off, we played Power Of Love by Huey Lewis and as if on cue, guests jumped to the dance floor with plastic guitars and pulled out their best dance moves and air guitar skills. We couldn’t have ended the night on a higher note!

Congratulations to Holly and Paul on your marriage and thank you for booking The CoverUps as your live wedding band. We wish you all the best!

Summer Ball At Woburn Golf Club

This particular event leads The CoverUps once again to Woburn Golf Club in Milton Keynes, just over an hours drive from the band’s base in Coventry. The band had played at this venue for parties and events in the past, and it was a pleasure to return to the golf club for a summer ball!

The band arrived earlier than usual to play live music during the dinner. Quieter, acoustic tracks were chosen for this section of the day so guests could enjoy their meal and talk easily with one another. The coordinator of the summer ball requested that the band play party music later in the evening when guests were ready to jump on the dance floor.

The CoverUps 5-piece band was booked so we kicked off the night with Price Tag by Jessie J thanks to our added female singer! Following this power tune the band played a range of music from 50s-10s including Sweet Child O’ Mine by Guns N’ Roses and California Girls by Katy Perry. We loved seeing guests drinking, dancing and having a great time. The night finished with a few favorite classics, Summer of ’69 and Don’t Look Back In Anger. Who doesn’t love a bit of Bryan Adams and Oasis?!

All in all, it was a fantastic night and the band hopes to return to Woburn Golf Club in the near future for more parties and corporate events!

Barnsley House Wedding To Kick Off July

To kick off our July wedding season The CoverUps returned to Barnsley House, this time, for Andrew and Emma’s wedding reception! The band have had the pleasure of playing at this Cotswold wedding venue numerous times before in both the main house and the marquee. Barnsley House always exceeds our expectations being a beloved historical venue with gorgeous grounds and welcoming staff who ensure the night runs smoothly.

The band arrived at Barnsley House in due time to set up their gear and sound check. As requested, we supplied I Won’t Let You Go by James Morison for the bride and groom’s first dance. Once guests were encouraged onto the dance floor the band started the night with Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran, a favourite track also requested by Emma and Andrew. The dance floor was full, the bride and groom and their guests were drinking happily and enjoying themselves- what more could we ask for!

With a 12:30am finish, ending on a high note with a live cover of Summer Of ’69 by Bryan Adams, the band packed up and headed home to Coventry. It’s safe to say the band had an incredible time playing live music for Andrew and Emma on their wedding day and it was a successful night all in all.

Congratulations to the newlyweds! Thank you for booking The CoverUps as your wedding band!
