We hired Band of Covers for our wedding reception, they were fantastic! Professional, polite and excellent musicians. Everyone we have spoken to have commented how they enjoyed the music. Many thanks to Daz and his band for making our day extra special.

"We had the full band at our wedding on 29th March, and they were fantastic from start to finish. In the lead up to the wedding they were more than happy to take any questions and specific requests, but we left them to it really, and they played a great set, with a varied mixture of music, all of which kept our guests dancing!
If you're thinking about getting a band for your wedding, we couldn't recommend Band of Covers enough."

"The guys played at our wedding on the 5th and were awesome, the run up to the wedding they put up with a constant stream of emails and changes from us with no complaints and our guests have all said they were really good even saying the songs they played were better than the originals, would definitely recommend for any event.
David Savage• Sept. 14, 2018
The band played at our wedding last weekend and they were absolutely fantastic. From our first dance song which they rehearsed and performed especially for us to the sets they played throughout the evening, they got everyone up on the dance floor and everyone commented on how amazing they were. Would definitely recommend!
