BoC played for our wedding day and evening and were absolutely fantastic!! We had the full package, solo during the ceremony, duo for our drinks reception and 5 piece band for the evening followed by DJ set. Can’t praise them enough from start to finish they were amazing and had such a good selection of great tunes which ensured the dance floor was full all night. Everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the band and how good they were. Thanks for everything and we would 100% recommend these as a band for any celebration. Big thanks to Daz and Andy who stayed in touch during planning process, always emailed back quickly and made sure that everything was tailored to our needs. I look forward to going to see these guys play again!!

Hired the band and DJ for my hubby's 50th birthday party. Great communication with Darren from booking and leading up to the day. They were absolutely brilliant on the night, great set list, played just the type of music we wanted and an absolute pleasure to deal with. I'd definitely recommend them without hesitation. The party guests couldn't say enough positive comments about them. AWESOME BAND.

Great band, so much fun and very professional. The guys played for our wedding in North Yorkshire and couldn't have been better. The songs they chose were perfect and played exceptionally well, the DJ was good between sets as well. What's more, they were all really friendly and were well liked by all the guests. Hopefully we'l see BoC again at another wedding soon!

"If I could give 6 out of 5 stars I would!

We were recommended Band of covers by a friend.. what a great shout that was!

Saw a couple of the boys on an acoustic set locally after booking and knew we’d made the right choice!
Darren was open friendly and honest with what was possible... we were glad we met up had a chat and listened to the guys!

This is a band that really has passion, great soul and you can tell the guys love their job! They are also top blokes

We were fortunate to get the band for our wedding and they really brought it!

THIS IS NOT YOUR TYPICAL WEDDING BAND.... this is a FANTASTIC group of lads...in a band... who also come and rock out your wedding
(bar mitzvah, christening or other non denomination event!)
If you want to party and really enjoy the music... call these guys!

To the band- It was great to have you perform and we are so happy you did that version for us on the first dance!
It was a belter!

Thanks again and we will be coming seeing you again soon

Mike & Abi Thompson"

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!

"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.
