Can’t recommend these guys enough!
Absolutely brilliant - checked in well before our wedding to confirm music tastes, confirm times etc. There’s so much to do when planning a wedding and entertainment is so integral to everyone’s enjoyment: it really felt like everything was in hand and it was such a weight off our minds knowing they had everything in hand and were making sure the music catered to our tastes.
In the night they arrived in plenty of time, ready to start bang on time. The music suited our group brilliantly - upbeat enough to get people dancing all night, but not so loud and in your face that people across the the room couldn’t sit and chat. Honestly can’t recommend these guys enough! Thank you so so much for helping to make our wedding so memorable/special!

Run For Cover played at our wedding, they arrived right on time and set up very quickly, the music was excellent and they had the dancefloor full throughout. Often tailoring the music based on the mood of the dancefloor, they gave a very good performance over 2 1 hour sets. Would highly recommend and book again without hesitation. Shaun

Fantastic evening!!! I booked Run For Cover for my dad’s 70th birthday party and they were perfect. Throughout the evening (and afterwards) many people commented on how good they were and how they ‘made’ the party. They were very approachable, friendly, accommodating and professional. Communication before the event was excellent and incredibly helpful. I would recommend them wholeheartedly!

Couldn't of asked for a better experience. The band was amazing and definitely got the dancefloor full. The band are really approachable and accommodating with any requests on the night and were flexible with the sets to work with the flow of the evening. Great quality music, which got our guests wanting more. A special thank you to Ben, who is most genuinely the nicest man, who can also belt out some tunes. Our wedding day was perfect, and Run For Cover definitely contributed to making it that way. We cannot recommend enough. If anyone is wanting top quality music for their event, then get in touch with Ben and the band.
We wish you guys all the best, and hope to use you again in the future.

Absolutely brilliant! Booked run for cover for my 30th birthday and they did not disappoint! Organisation was super easy, RFC were set up and tested, liaising with the venue and I didn’t have to do anything (bonus!). Their 2 sets were outstanding, everyone was up and dancing. It totally made my party. I’m so so glad I booked RFC they were absolutely brilliant. If you need a band and DJ that will get your party started RFC are the one 👌🏻
