In our many years playing at weddings across the UK we haven’t often found ourselves as a wedding band in Staffordshire. While only a short distance as the crow flies from the band’s base in Coventry, the journey uses 2 motorways, and a significant stretch of 2 major A roads – whichever route you take!
A Classy Venue Without the Pricetag
Checking out the Dovecliff Hall Hotel website reveals prices as low as £5000 for a complete wedding package. Despite this pricing, you’re treated to some excellent facilities, and really beautiful rooms.
We played in the Orangery, which wasn’t as glassy as it might sound! The acoustics in the room were fine, and we managed to get a great live sound for the band.
Christmas Wedding Band?!
For the last 3 years, The CoverUps have played a wedding every 28th December! It’s a date met with mixed feeling by couples – being as it is directly between Christmas and New Year. This year’s happy couple wholly embraced the spirit of the season, asking specifically for some Christmas songs – which the audience loved!
Next Stop – New Year’s Eve
The next gig is New Year’s Eve at Cheltenham’s Hotel du Vin. We’ve learnt Moves Like Jagger – so it’ll be great to see how that goes!
