The Covers Brothers are real life siblings Paul and Steven Herron. Having played together for over 15 years, they share the same love for all harmony based classic pop music from the early sounds of 50s America through to the Britpop days of the 90s.
When they sing, the sound tells you they're brothers, and when they chat in between songs you can tell they're from the north east!
No backing tracks, no electronic trickery, just two voices and two acoustic guitars, simple, authentic, and fun.
Please, describe your act or business in on sentence:
Harmony laden cover versions of classic songs from the past 60 years.
What are the highlights of your career?
Too many to mention, but last ear we were flown out to upstate New York to play, it was absolutely amazing.
What is your competitive advantage (special features)?
I guess the fact we have no backing tracks, no lyrics sheets, no ipads, no special trickery, and we're happy to have a crack at song requests.
What kind of events do you usually serve?
Parties, weddings, corporate events, funerals, wakes, you name it, we've played it.
Who are your previous clients?
far too many to mention....
How can event planners pay for your services?
Bank Transfer, Cash, Cheque, Paypal, etc.
How long do you play for?
The usual length is 2 x 45minute sets, but this varies hugely from event to event, we are 100% flexible.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
We have our own PA, but no lighting.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
We are fully covered by public Liability insurance and all our equipment is PAT tested.
How much space do you require?
All we need is one plug socket, and around 4-5 meters squared, we can usually squeeze in anywhere we need to.
My favourite tune is not on your list. Will you be able to play it?
Probably, maybe, more then likely, get in touch!!
How many breaks do you take? How long are they?
usually just one break, between 15 and 30 minutes, but every event is different, we are flexible with most things.
