September Recap!

This September The CoverUps played live music for several weddings, a 21-st birthday party and a corporate event. It was definitely a busy month for this Coventry based function band!

Beautiful Barn Wedding In Worcestershire

Our first event of the month saw the band at Curradine Barns for Laura and Sarah’s wedding reception. The CoverUps enjoyed returning to this beautiful barn wedding venue located in the small village of Shrawley in Worcestershire. With 3 x 45 minute sets and plenty of requests by the brides we had a set list full of fun favourites that kept the dance floor full all night long! The band even changed the words to Moves Like Jagger to ‘Moves Like Hannah’ at the request of the brides. Everyone loved it!

5-Piece Wedding Band In Worcester

It was a double header weekend for the band as the next day we arrived at Orchard Manor in Worcester for Claire and Kush’s wedding day. This was a special one as the band played for Claire’s 21st birthday party and now it was her wedding day! I suppose having been a band for over a decade it was only a matter of time before this would happen! With our 5-piece lineup, Claire and Kush had a set list full of both male and female lead tracks including Only Girl In The World by Rihanna and Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. It was a brilliant night all in all.

A Happy Wedding Day In Surrey

Our next wedding brought the band to Nonsuch Mansion in Sutton, Surrey as a 5-piece lineup. The bride and groom picked Happy by Pharrell Williams for their first dance and the cover went down a treat. Soon after, guests joined the happy couple (pun intended!) on the dance floor for a night of Queen, Michael Jackson, The White Stripes, Spin Doctors and other classic rock covers! Christen and Mike on lead vocals did a wicked job covering these mega records.

21st Birthday Party Black Tie Style

The band was then booked to play live music for Tom and Harry’s joint 21st birthday party in Sheepwash, Melton Mowbray– a black tie event to say the least! With our 5-piece band, the birthday boys had a set list containing all their favourite songs. A youthful crowd kept the dance floor packed well into the night. Great energy, great party. We will never forget it!

Corporate Event In Harrogate

The CoverUps also visited Harrogate International Centre for Infection Prevention Society’s corporate event. Harrogate International Centre is a conference and exhibition building with a 2,000 seat auditorium and plenty of meeting spaces for events such as this one. With over a 2.5-hour drive, the venue wasn’t necessarily local for our West Midlands based musicians, but the travel was straightforward and the night went without a hitch.

Marquee Wedding In Swindon

To tie our September wedding season to a close we performed at the Evans’ marquee wedding at Manor Farm in Swindon. The bride and groom sent the band a list of their favourite songs before the big day. Teenage Dirtbag by Wheatus and Johnny B Goode were amongst other chosen tracks. We had a great time playing these song requests to a packed dance floor and everyone enjoying themselves. The CoverUps wrapped it up with Wonderwall by Oasis, also requested by the bride and groom, and we couldn’t have imagined a better tune to end the night on a real high.

Burford Bridge Hotel Christmas Party

This Christmas, the band traveled eastward towards Surrey for a Christmas Party held at Burford Bridge Hotel in Dorking. Associated with Mercure Hotels, Burford Bridge Hotel is an excellent venue with a wide range of accompanying options for weddings, corporate functions and parties such as this one!

The band started the night with the famous hit, Valerie by Amy Winehouse which never fails to get people on the dance floor. Immediately following was Stuck In The Middle With You and the old time favourite, Sweet Home Alabama to really get things going! The CoverUps do love performing at weddings, however, equally love a good ol’ festive bash in the holidays!

Big thanks to Crescendo for booking the band for your Christmas Party. Merry Christmas! We hope to see you again next year!

Memorable Wedding At The Manor House Hotel

A few minutes drive from Guildford town centre in Surrey sits The Manor House Hotel and Spa where the band had the pleasure of playing live music for Michelle and Ian’s evening wedding reception. The CoverUps have visited the London area to play for several weddings before, however it was the band’s first time visiting The Manor House and we hope it won’t be our last!

The wedding venue went above and beyond for this bride and groom’s special day. The rooms were beautifully decorated, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was relaxed and comfortable making for an excellent start to the night’s festivities!

The party started with the happy couple’s first dance choice, You Are The First, My Last, My Everything by Barry White and the band followed the dance with Marry You by Bruno Mars as guests were encouraged to join the bride and groom on the dance floor.

With a set list packed with all time classics and some of today’s latest hits, everyone took to the dance floor and kept the energy going late into the night! It sure was a special celebration to be remembered!

Congratulations Michelle and Ian on your very special day! The CoverUps are honoured to have been a part of it!

Summer, Country House Wedding in Surrey

To kick off the month of August we skirted round London to the Great Fosters Hotel in Surrey for AJ and Harriet’s wedding. Great Fosters was originally built as a royal hunting lodge in 1550, though today stands as a luxurious country house perfect for hosting weddings like this one!

The road to Surrey was a straight forward 2-hour journey for the band. We loaded our gear into our vehicles and left plenty of time to get to the hotel to set up. It was the band’s first visit to Great Fosters Hotel and from what we were told about the venue, it certainly was all we expected and more. The grounds were gorgeous, no doubt about that! We couldn’t find any reason not to label the hotel as a fantastic wedding venue. We would recommend Great Fosters to any bride and groom looking for an all-in-one wedding package and a location close to London yet in the countryside seemingly miles away from the big city.

A Marvellous Night For A Moondance

The evening reception began with the bride and groom’s first dance which the band performed live- Moondance by Van Morrison. Following the happy couple’s first dance, the bride had an intimate dance with her father and the groom had a special dance with his mother. This is an American tradition come to find out that was a lovely touch to the evening!

After the first dances we carried on straight through our first set list full of 60s-70s classics. We changed things up a bit in our second set with some modern hits that kept the dance floor full. Arctic Monkeys, Bruno Mars and and Maroon 5 being some of the guests favourite artists, of course!

Wrapping It Up With A Favourite Finale 

The night went by like a flash. It’s true that time flies when you’re having fun! To wrap up the night we rocked out to Summer of ’69 by Bryan Adams. It’s a classic favourite often requested and it never disappoints. The dance floor was packed, everyone was having a blast and the bride and groom couldn’t have been more pleased. What more could we ask for?

A big congratulations goes out to the bride and groom, Harriet and AJ! The CoverUps wish you the absolute best in your married life together and we hope that one day our paths might cross again.

Congrats!
