Booked RFC for our wedding. They were brilliant! Ben was great as a solo artist during our reception drinks too, and fantastic to deal with throughout. Thanks lads for your part in making the day/night special for us - the guests loved you!

No words can do justice for what Run For Cover did for us. Accommodating every step on the way. The daytime acoustics, main set and DJ were second to none. Without them, the day would of not been as special. Thank you, guys.

Amazing! Everyone at our wedding commented on how good the music was, and the acoustic guitar in the day really set off the day. Really easy to deal with, and always kept me up to date. Thanks for making our day better!

We booked run for cover for our wedding back in 2019 and due to covid we finally had our big day in June 2022.

They stuck by us for all that time and we're very accommodating and professional and kept in touch throughout.

We opted for the band with their DJ service in between.
The Song choices were discussed with us in advance, and the band even played our first dance Live, and provided the audio to us for the videographer to get better sound quality.

The guys were so friendly and down to earth and sounded amazing on the night.

They really made the night stand out and we had loads of comments saying how good they were. We are very glad we decided to opt for this band instead of just a DJ as the atmosphere was fantastic.

Couldn't recommend these guys highly enough. Thanks run for cover.
