At Your Event

How we rock…

[/fusion_text][fusion_text]

Arrival, set up and soundcheck

It all begins with our prompt arrival at your venue at the booked time. Our set up and sound check are performed swiftly and discreetly, usually taking around an hour, sometimes a little more, although if a production company or AV crew are present this time can be greatly reduced.

1st live set

Schedules often deviate a little depending on the function, so we’ll liaise with you or the event manager at the venue to confirm timing of the first set.

After our first live set, we’ll take a break (usually around 45 minutes). Our PA system will continue to play carefully-chosen background music throughout the break (as long as you want it to!). If you choose to go with our DJ upgrade, a member of the band will run the DJ rig and will be on hand to take requests and make announcements.

After set up

After we’ve set up and sound checked we will put background music on through our PA system and go to change into our stage clothes. You will need to arrange for the venue to provide us with a secure changing room, and your catering to provide us with a hot meal and soft drinks/tea/coffee. This is standard for all bookings for any band. If we can’t eat before the first set (EG: the event is behind schedule and we need to perform right away) – then we’ll eat during our first break.

2nd live set & end of the night

If we finish before the clock strikes 12, we’ll provide background music until midnight (unless we’ve agreed to a later finish beforehand). We’ll only pack up after our contracted finish time, and this normally takes about an hour. As with set up, we’ll be as efficient and discreet as possible.[/fusion_text][/one_full][one_full last=”yes” spacing=”yes” center_content=”no” hide_on_mobile=”no” background_color=”” background_image=”” background_repeat=”no-repeat” background_position=”left top” hover_type=”none” link=”” border_position=”all” border_size=”0px” border_color=”” border_style=”” padding=”” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=”” animation_type=”” animation_direction=”” animation_speed=”0.1″ animation_offset=”” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]

Thank you for a truly amazing night Sat 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 Thank you[/testimonial][testimonial name=”Lucie Henwood” avatar=”none” image=”” image_border_radius=”” company=”Thames Traditional Boat Festival – Entertainment” link=”” target=”_self”]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. [/testimonial][testimonial name=”Terry and Tanya Chamberlain” avatar=”male” image=”” image_border_radius=”” company=”” link=”” target=”_self”]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.

“The Covered played at our wedding in London recently and from the first minute after we booked to their last song at the wedding they were thoroughly professional, personable, and great fun. They played a two-hour-plus set that got everyone up dancing like lunatics. What more could you ask for!? Their song list spans from the 60s through to the now and the band read the crowd to make sure the next song played is going to keep everyone up and dancing. We booked them knowing very little about them, but we’re so glad we did. John was extremely helpful throughout the process and goes the extra yard to make his clients happy.”

“We booked The Covered for our recent wedding party on 7th October and it was one of the easiest and best decisions we made!! John and the gang are incredible talented and so accommodating that they even learnt a Chicago song for the day for us! Absolutely blown away by the set up and so were our guests. We would highly recommend The Covered for any event where you want a full dance floor. Thanks again you guys, you smashed it!”

“We booked the band to play at our Silver Wedding Anniversary party on Saturday 19th May. The Covered played a 2 hour set without a break keeping the dance floor busy with classic numbers. We thoroughly enjoyed them and had so many compliments from our guests for our choice of band! They were very professional, looked the part and engaged well with their audience, we couldn’t have made a better choice and would highly recommend them.”

“I am the owner operator of The Five Horseshoes in Maidensgrove. We booked The Covered for an event last Saturday and it was the best decision I could have made. They far surpassed my expectations. We have had many live bands playing here in the past but this band left the rest behind. They were totally professional from start to finish. They were very communicative and easy to deal with. The party goers just keep on contacting me to express their appreciation of the music and the great time they had. A very well chosen play list – they just seemed to know exactly what song to perform at the various stages of the evening. They had everyone up dancing – people of all ages having the time of their lives. Very talented musicians and singers. Highly recommended.”

“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.”
