This May, The CoverUps had the pleasure of visiting an elegant wedding venue, The Old Rectory Hotel, based in Llangattock near the Crickhowell river. Dating back to the 16th century, the hotel was the perfect historical location for Tom and Cassie’s marquee wedding with a view of the Black Mountains in the distance- definitely a first for our Coventry based band!
The bride and groom had booked our 5-piece lineup to play at their wedding reception, specifically requesting one of our female lead singers, Rachel, as they heard her singing at a previous wedding! The band arrived at 6pm to set up and sound check in the marquee set up in the garden. As requested by the newlyweds, we came prepared with an upbeat set list ready to get people on the dance floor!
The band performed a fully live cover of Drift Away by Dobie Gray as the bride and groom’s first dance choice and it kicked off the night brilliantly. Soon after, guests joined the happy couple on the dance floor and we got the party started with Stuck In The Middle With You by Stealers Wheel followed by a favourite, Sweet Home Alabama by Lynrd Skynyrd. The night went down a storm with Tom and Cassie and their guests partying late into the night.
Congratulations to Tom and Cassie! Thanks for having The CoverUps as your wedding band! Enjoy a fully live highlight video of the night below…
