Tonight was Richard and Julie’s wedding day at Harbury Village Hall. The CoverUps enjoyed returning to the small town of Harbury, located in Stratford-on-Avon, Warwickshire, and it was nice to play at a wedding venue just down the road from the band’s HQ in Coventry. The bride and groom booked The CoverUps 5-piece band to perform live music at their evening wedding reception. With both a male and female lead vocalist, the band played a wide range of songs from 50s-10s. There was definitely a favourite feel for everyone!
Soulful First Dance Song
The bride and groom requested The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face by Roberta Flack to be played live for their first dance. What a gorgeous 1960s classic soul song! The CoverUps female lead vocalist, Christen, executed a wonderful cover on the night and really did the song justice.
A Set List Chock-Full Of Favourites
The band kicked off the night with Price Tag by Jessie J and Marry You by Bruno Mars immediately following their first dance. Guests joined the bride and groom on the dance floor and the night was surely off to a great start!
To follow Bruno Mars, the band threw in a few old time bests- You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon and Take On Me by Aha. Not to forget modern female-lead pop songs including California Gurls by Katy Perry and Call Me Maybe Carly Rae Jepsen. Our set list was chock-full of favourite classics and latest hot hits and it was great to see Richard, Julie and their guests really enjoying the mix on the dance floor and dancing well into the night!
