Friends In The Industry

Being in the wedding industry for over 10 years now, sometimes the band get lucky enough work with friends on a wedding day!

Last week the band visited one of the West Midland’s best wedding venues, Compton Verney, in Warwick, for Kate and Westley’s Christmas wedding. Our friend and wedding photographer, Hannah K. Photography, was working hard documenting the bride and groom’s big day and our 4-piece male lead lineup got to play live music in the evening. The dance floor was packed for both the band’s sets which always makes for a great night. The bride and groom and their wedding guests even carried on after the band had left! What a fantastic wedding!

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.

The CoverUps 5-Piece Wedding Band In Harbury

Tonight was Richard and Julie’s wedding day at Harbury Village Hall. The CoverUps enjoyed returning to the small town of Harbury, located in Stratford-on-Avon, Warwickshire, and it was nice to play at a wedding venue just down the road from the band’s HQ in Coventry. The bride and groom booked The CoverUps 5-piece band to perform live music at their evening wedding reception. With both a male and female lead vocalist, the band played a wide range of songs from 50s-10s. There was definitely a favourite feel for everyone!

Soulful First Dance Song

The bride and groom requested The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face by Roberta Flack to be played live for their first dance. What a gorgeous 1960s classic soul song! The CoverUps female lead vocalist, Christen, executed a wonderful cover on the night and really did the song justice.

A Set List Chock-Full Of Favourites

The band kicked off the night with Price Tag by Jessie J and Marry You by Bruno Mars immediately following their first dance. Guests joined the bride and groom on the dance floor and the night was surely off to a great start!

To follow Bruno Mars, the band threw in a few old time bests- You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon and Take On Me by Aha. Not to forget modern female-lead pop songs including California Gurls by Katy Perry and Call Me Maybe Carly Rae Jepsen. Our set list was chock-full of favourite classics and latest hot hits and it was great to see Richard, Julie and their guests really enjoying the mix on the dance floor and dancing well into the night!

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!
