Spring Wedding at Curradine Barns

On Wednesday, 23rd March the band made their way to The Curradine Barns in Shrawley for Adrianna and Todd’s wedding reception. It was a nice surprise to have a wedding mid-week as well as visit a venue new to the band! Curradine Barns is a truly picturesque wedding venue in the heart of the Worcestershire countryside. Just over an hours drive from Coventry where The CoverUps are based, it was an easy and enjoyable journey.

The band arrived at 6:00pm to set up our gear and grab a bite to eat. We jumped in on the hog roast which was suburb and gave us the energy we needed to put on a great show. Our stomachs were thankful!

To kickoff the night, the band played Wings by Birdy as requested by the bride and groom. Wings was a lovely track we enjoyed preparing for Adrianna and Todd and we could tell their family and friends loved it too! Immediately after, guests were encouraged onto the dance floor to join the newlyweds and we were on to a great evening!

A real favourite of the night had to be Uptown Funk lead by Christen and Adam on vocals. Everyone was on their feet bringing high energy into the room and pulling out their best dance moves. All in all it was a smashing night at a great venue we hope to return to soon!

We can’t finish this post without thanking our amazing sound technician, Zac. With his help, our set up, sound check, performance and pack down are made 10x easier. It is great to have him on board!

Ettington Park Wedding In March

Ettington Park, one of the best wedding venues in Warwickshire, was The CoverUps’ location for yet another fantastic wedding. This venue is not only a favourite of the band because it’s close to home, but because it has proven to be welcoming, accommodating and fitting for every wedding we have had the pleasure of playing at! Safe to say, The CoverUps were over the moon to be invited back for Elizabeth and Adam’s special day.

The band arrived at 6:00pm to set up and sound check. After a hearty meal provided by the hotel, the band were ready to play the bride and groom’s first dance choices, Time In A Bottle by Jim Croce and Stuck In The Middle Of You by Stealers Wheel. It wasn’t long before eager guests were encouraged to the dance floor and we jumped into our first set with Come Up And See Me by Steve Harley & Cockney Rebel.

With a mix of old time classics and current top chart tracks, the night went down a storm and we couldn’t be more pleased to see a dance floor full until the very end.

The band finished the night on a real high with Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis. And with that, we congratulated the bride and groom and called it a very successful night!

Congratulations once again Elizabeth and Adam. Thank you for inviting the CoverUps to play a part in your special day!

5-Piece Wedding At MoxHull Hall

On this special occasion, The CoverUps returned to Moxhull Hall for Joanne and Mark’s big day! Being one of the West Midland‘s most popular wedding venues, it was no surprise that Moxhull Hall was also the ideal location for this particular wedding celebration!

The band arrived at 6:00pm to set up and soundcheck. With a quick load in, we set the stage in ready time to eat our fill on chicken and chips- courtesy of the bride and groom! As speeches came to a close, we readied ourselves for the newlyweds first dance.

The couple chose Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran and I Loved Her First by Heartland as recorded tracks played by the venue’s DJ. The CoverUps came in immediately after with the first live song of the night and all guests were encouraged onto the dance floor. With Christen on female vocals we were able to add in a few favourite tracks by Taylor Swift and Meghan Trainer which really kept high energy in the room!

The band couldn’t have asked for a more lively night! It was great to see the bride and groom and their closest family and friends enjoying themselves and packing out the dance floor until the very end. Congratulations to this fantastic couple and we hope you enjoyed the night even more than The CoverUps did!

Enjoy a fully live highlight video of the night below…

Corporate Event In Nottingham Trent University

A nice change of plans for the band was playing live for a private corporate function held at Nottingham Trent University in the heart of Nottingham. Only an hours drive from the band’s home in Coventry, West Midlands, The CoverUps enjoyed the short travel!

The band arrived at the university at 5:30pm to set up their instruments in The Old Museum room. Loading our gear 100 metres through the library and down a flight of stairs was a feat The CoverUps are no stranger to! Thanks to our experience in playing in a variety of venues, we were able to set up and sound check in due time. Once the stage was set, we were pleasantly surprised with a 3-course meal each- what a treat! And with that, we kicked the night off with the classic Moondance by Van Morrison.

The night went on without a hitch and we couldn’t be happier to see guests enjoying themselves on the dance floor. A great night was had all in all!

5-Piece Wonderland Wedding at Calcot Manor

The CoverUps kicked off 2016 with Susie and Paul’s wedding at the luxurious Cotswolds wedding venue, Calcot Manor! Just under two hours drive from the band’s HQ in Coventry, Calcot Manor stands as a 14th century renovated country house hotel. The interior was pristine yet welcoming and warm- the perfect location for this bride and groom’s winter wedding reception!

The ballroom was decorated with hanging baubles and snowflakes which gave a whimsical wonderland feel to the room. Crazy In Love by Van Morrison began to play as the newlyweds danced their first dance. Soon enough, all guests were invited onto the dance floor and the band got everyone up and dancing to Bruno Mars, The Beatles and Queen just to name a few!

The bride and groom had specifically requested The CoverUps’ 5-piece lineup so we didn’t hesitate to get Christen on the mic! With an added female vocal we were able to include tracks such as California Gurls by Katy Perry, Mercy by Duffy and Shake It Off by Taylor Swift for all the ladies in the room. Fellas, don’t be ashamed. We saw you dancing too!

The saying is true, “Time flies when you’re having fun.” Because even though the band had an extended set list at two and a half hours, it seemed too soon to be playing our last track, Time Of Your Life by Green Day, regardless of the fact it was almost midnight. It’s safe to say the band had an incredible time playing live music for Susie and Paul on their wedding day and we look back on the night with fond memories. Please enjoy a few photos from the night below!

New Year’s Eve At Lainston House Hotel

The CoverUps were very excited when Sarah from Exclusive Events asked to book the band for the second time for their New Year’s party at Lainston House Hotel. We had such a fun time playing live music at this stunning 5 star hotel last year, we couldn’t wait to return for another epic night!

At the very start of our first set, the guests were already filling the dance floor and raising their glasses to a memorable night. No warm up needed for this lot! The band continued to play through classics such as Signed, Sealed, Delivered by Stevie Wonder and Jonny B Goode by Chuck Berry which kept the high energy going right up until the break.

As the clock started ticking to the end of 2015, we played through the last couple songs The CoverUps will ever play that year which included Don’t Stop Believing by Journey and a favourite record, Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis. With a roaring countdown to the new year, and a coordinated playing of Big Ben’s chimes by the DJ, 2016 was welcomed with an eruption of cheers and applause, drinks in the air and hugs all around. To top it all off, the band played the traditional tune Auld Lang Syne to bring the night to a perfect end.

Here’s to another great year of celebration! Happy New Year!!

Christmas Celebration at Wroxall Abbey

On this particular winter day, The CoverUps returned yet again to Wroxall Abbey, located just down the road from the band’s home base in Coventry. Though the band have performed for numerous weddings at Wroxall Abbey before, it was great to perform live music for a Christmas party this time!

Festive joy was in the air from the moment we arrived. Bubbly was poured, the welcoming scent of holiday treats met our hungry stomachs and we were greeted warmly by smiling faces. We were certainly in for a good time!

We arrived at the venue at 6:00pm sharp to set up and played recorded music in the background for the bride and groom’s evening meal. With instruments ready, we played our first set at 9:30pm when everyone was ready to put their dancing shoes on. Having a cosy number of around 70 guests attending, it was a relaxed atmosphere while guests enjoyed swaying to the music, chatting with their friends and keeping their glasses full to the brim!

As requested, we added a couple Christmas classics into our set list which ended the night on a real high. As we packed down for the night, we provided recorded music until 1:00am while guests said their goodbyes and wished one another Merry Christmas.

Overall, it was a fantastic night that we all thoroughly enjoyed! Until next time, Wroxall Abbey!

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!

Thomas And Andy’s Wedding at Antsy Hall

Just down the road from the band’s home town, Coventry, we arrived at The Orangery at Antsy Hall for Thomas and Andy’s wedding. The CoverUps came well prepared having rehearsed the grooms’ first dance request, Gold Forever by The Wanted. Thomas and Andy encouraged all of their guests onto the dance floor for their first dance which made for a perfect start to the evening!

Ansty Hall did a fantastic job of decorating the ballroom for Thomas and Andy. Balloons were everywhere! The night was full of energy yet laid back at the same time. This allowed the newlyweds to chat to their guests while also enjoy the disco between the band’s sets and rock it out on the dance floor as soon as we started playing again!

Queen Of Pop

Tracks such as Domino by Jessie J and Poker Face by Lady Gaga were added thanks to an additional female vocalist, Christen, as part of our 5-piece band. We always love having an extra vocalist with us. It means we can add female-lead tracks and dive into the favourited pop tracks on our repertoire. We would definitely recommend booking our 5-piece band if you’re keen on pop!

The night went down like a storm. We couldn’t ask for anything more than a full dance floor and everyone enjoying themselves- and that is exactly what we had. We also managed to grab a few photos from the night which you can browse below. We hope you enjoy and think of us if you’re getting married at Antsy Hall anytime soon!

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!
