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!
