The CoverUps as a band are very familiar with Coombe Abbey. As one of Coventry’s, nay the West Midlands’ busiest venues wedding venues, it’s understandable that the band make regular visits to the wonderful medieval grounds.
On The Record
It’s not uncommon for the band to be asked to play the recording of a song that they’d be happy playing live. While a band’s live performance of a first dance is for many a real highlight of the day, the original recordings of songs can evoke memories in a way that only the original singer’s voice does. We never take offence either way – and it’s always nice to hear John Legend singing his work in the way that only he does!
Up All Night
It was straight from the first dance the band struck into the first live set. With a variety of classics requested by the couple, and a heavy 80s influence the set was packed with dance floor filling songs. Songs by Soft Cell and the Human league hadn’t made appearances in recent months, so it was lovely to break them out for such an appreciative audience!
On Top Of The World
Playing as a live wedding band is awesome – we get to see people at their very best! The happiest day of their lives, with all their friends and family around them: playing a euphoric set finisher they’ll remember in years to come is just a wonderful feeling.
We’re really excited for Caroling and Tom, and really hoping they have a wonderful first year of married life!
