Curradine Barns

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.

Spring Wedding at Curradine Barns

On Wednesday, 23rd March the band made their way to The Curradine Barns in Shrawley for Adrianna and Todd’s wedding reception. It was a nice surprise to have a wedding mid-week as well as visit a venue new to the band! Curradine Barns is a truly picturesque wedding venue in the heart of the Worcestershire countryside. Just over an hours drive from Coventry where The CoverUps are based, it was an easy and enjoyable journey.

The band arrived at 6:00pm to set up our gear and grab a bite to eat. We jumped in on the hog roast which was suburb and gave us the energy we needed to put on a great show. Our stomachs were thankful!

To kickoff the night, the band played Wings by Birdy as requested by the bride and groom. Wings was a lovely track we enjoyed preparing for Adrianna and Todd and we could tell their family and friends loved it too! Immediately after, guests were encouraged onto the dance floor to join the newlyweds and we were on to a great evening!

A real favourite of the night had to be Uptown Funk lead by Christen and Adam on vocals. Everyone was on their feet bringing high energy into the room and pulling out their best dance moves. All in all it was a smashing night at a great venue we hope to return to soon!

We can’t finish this post without thanking our amazing sound technician, Zac. With his help, our set up, sound check, performance and pack down are made 10x easier. It is great to have him on board!
