The Covered are a London-based function band specialising in exciting floor-filling pop/rock and soul music hits from the 1950s to modern day.

We understand that you want to hear the classics exactly how you remember them. that’s why we work hard to make our set sound just like the original recording!

We may be in London but we can travel throughout the UK and abroad.

So if you’re looking for an exciting band for your wedding, party or corporate function, we have you covered!

  • We are a 7 piece band, playing exciting floor filling Motown/pop/rock/funk and soul classics– one or two guitarists, saxophonist, bass guitarist, keys, drums, male and female lead vocals.
  • All our band members are highly skilled and have years of experience. (Please see what our previous clients have said below)
  • We can also add an additional quality brass section (trombone and trumpet) for extra quality if required.
  • We usually play a 2 1/2 hour set without a break to keep the floor full and at no extra charge but can do two or three sets to suit your requirements.
  • Background music can be supplied where relevant (eg during dinner).
  • Playlists of dance music when we’re not playing.
  • State of the art PA sound and lighting system, experienced sound engineers within band.
  • £2m public liability insurance (can be increased if venue requires)
  • Get a flavour by viewing our short video!

We look forward to making your night go off with a bang! Ask about our early booking discount.

“Thank you for a truly amazing night, Saturday 9th April. The floor was full from the time you started and you would have been there all night doing “just one more” by popular demand. Truly a great band – cool, funky and a perfect accompaniment to our very lively night!”

We booked The Covered for the Saturday night of the Thames Traditional Boat Festival.
They had great energy and musicianship from start to finish and the set list was a work of art – something for everyone! I have no hesitation in recommending the The Covered to liven up any event and deliver a cracking set of songs with professionalism and enthusiasm.
Lucie Henwood, Thames Traditional Boat Festival – Entertainment
We searched high and low for our wedding entertainment as we only had a small party: 30 guests, many of whom we knew would leave not long after our wedding breakfast, and in our experience, the smaller parties are harder to cater for with less room for error. Eventually, after months of web searches, recommendations and arguments, we found The Covered’ website and after viewing a sample playlist and speaking with John, we were certain that this was the band that would deliver us a knock out night.
The package was totally flexible and accommodated our every wish, right down to the finest detail, and we gave John a fairly free rein with regards to genres of music we had asked to be played; to use his intuition as the night progressed. It was perfect. There was only about 2 tracks played before everyone was up on their feet dancing away- particularly hard to do with such a small party, and everyone had a wonderful time.
The talent from this band far supersedes our expectations and although helpful to watch their videos on their website, actually seeing them live does them far more justice. They are incomparable to any other local bands we have seen over the years and if we ever had any other event, they would be at the top of our list, without hesitation. First class entertainment, first class talent and they delivered a first class service. I wish you all well and seriously hope to cross paths with you again.

Terry and Tanya Chamberlain (London wedding)
“The Covered” absolutely got it right. They played fabulous music both creating and responding to the atmosphere as a well as playing some special very meaningful requests. The more than 230 people all had a ball and the success of the function owes a great deal to professionalism and quality of their performance. Top notch! I would use them again without hesitation.
Peter Butler (Black tie fund raiser, Southampton)
We were thrilled with the band. Great musicians, fantastically talented singers! Your choice of music was perfect and we will clearly need a bigger dance floor next year! We do hope you will come and play again in 2017 as you were simply the best band we could have chosen and people were still talking about that evening weeks later.
