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!
