2016 – It’s Been Quite A Year!

Happy New Year to all of our clients past, present and future! What a year it’s been!

The CoverUps have traveled as near as Wethele Manor in Leamington Spa and as far as Harrogate International Centre in Harrogate this past year. Having been a live West Midlands band for over a decade now, you’d think we would be tired of the travel. But truth is, the band still love playing live music for weddings, parties and corporate events all over the UK. We are really looking forward to a new year full of weddings and events for all of our lineups!

We still have dates available for 2017 so if you haven’t yet received a quick quote for your event please get in touch through our contact form here.

Enjoy a fully live video below highlighting some of our favourite moments of 2016!

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.

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!

Corporate Event In Birmingham Wraps Up June

To wrap up The CoverUps’ June wedding season the band returned to our sister-city, Birmingham, this time, for a corporate event at Holiday Inn! Just down the road from Coventry where the band resides, Birmingham has a variety of fantastic venues we would recommend. Holiday Inn is certainly one of them especially for corporate events as the venue can easily host 100+ guests.

The band arrived at 6:00pm to quickly set up and soundcheck. Once the stage was set, the band were treated to a hot chicken dinner which gave us the energy we needed to kick off the night with real energy! The CoverUps 4-piece band with a male lead vocalist was booked for the night. It was requested the band play a range of songs from 50s-80s mostly to appeal to an age range of 30-60 years. Of course, we didn’t mind one bit!

Popular tracks by The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Queen and Aha really got guests on the dancefloor. We ended the night on a high note with Don’t Look Back In Anger by Oasis which always goes down a treat. A successful, fun night all in all!

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!

Conference Dinner At The Majestic Hotel

In the heart of Harrogate lies the 4-star victorian venue, The Majestic Hotel. North Yorkshire’s favourite hotel is not only a relaxing location providing access to the town’s many fine buildings and the Yorkshire Dales National Park, it also provides a fantastic destination for corporate gatherings- one of which the band had the pleasure of performing for this past November.

A standard start to the night that everyone loves is Moondance by Van Morrison. The band kept the party going with The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson and a few favourites by Queen which had everyone bobbing to the music.

The CoverUps enjoy the occasional change of schedule by playing at conference dinners and gatherings. There is a bit more space to perform and play while guests dance and chat. It’s always a success in our books to be reassured by the end of the night that everyone had a great time regardless of whether they had a drink in hand or their dancing shoes on!

We hope you enjoy a quick overview of the night from a few photos below…!

Shottle Hall For Another Christmas Party

This Christmas season has been bustling with staff Christmas parties, which all make a fun departure from the weddings that the band play throughout the summer months. This night in Derbyshire, it was the turn of Atkins Global, a world-renowned engineering firm, to enjoy the CoverUps’ finest party tunes!

Live Band And DJ

The company had opted for both live band and DJ as their entertainment for the evening. While not strictly necessary (we’re always happy to keep the atmosphere with recorded music between the live sets) it does make for a diverse evening of musical entertainment. The DJ started the evening with some background tunes, becoming livelier as dinner finished.

A generous tab at the bar kept the staff happy through the early parts of the evening, people taking turns as if tag teaming between the bar and dance floor!

Timing Is Everything!

We spent some time before the performance discussing the timings with the venue and DJ to make sure that we made the most of what they’d booked. While it makes sense to have the band playing at key moments, it’s also good to not chop and change too much. We decided in the end to play two longer sets, rather than the 3 shorter sets originally requested, giving the DJ a much better run at it during the band’s break.

Suffice to say, the second set really got the crowd going! Massive modern classics like Dynamite and Locked Out Of Heaven were flanked by old school classics from Bon Jovi, Journey and Bryan Adams to take the night up to the next level! The dance floor was so lively by the time we finished that the DJ couldn’t even wait for an encore, and got playing right away with some brit pop tunes.

I hope we get to play for this lot again – it was great fun. And who knows, we might even play a wedding at Shottle Hall before the year’s out!

Donington Park Farmhouse With SVA

With weddings being bread and butter for a function band like us, it’s always fun to play something a bit different. December being Christmas party season gives us plenty of opportunity to break out from the wedding band mould and stretch our musical legs! SVA has a pretty youthful workforce, meaning we could drop many of the older classics and stick with a modern set, which is always fun.

Familiar Surroundings At Donington Park

This was the band’s third live performance at Donington Park, the previous two occasions being weddings, and it’s starting to feel quite familiar. The load in is straight forward, and as you can see from the photos below, there’s a great stage for us. Playing down a long room like that is good fun, and especially when the audience are as receptive as the SVA staff were!

Set Highlights

The set had many great moments, but we particularly enjoyed bringing out the more modern. tracks. Happy, Locked Out Of Heaven, and Get Lucky were all lots of fun. It’s always fun to watch an audience’s reaction when we break out the vocoder in Get Lucky!

Looking forward to our next trip to Nottinghamshire!
