We can’t recommend them highly enough!
The covered played at our Ladies Night last weekend, they were absolutely fantastic, we had the 6 piece set up and each and every member of the band was amazing. They played all of the dance floor classics we could have asked for and when we asked for something not in their planned line up they added it on and played it flawlessly. We can’t recommend them highly enough.

John and his band really know how to entertain!
John and his band did a TREMENDOUS job at our winter wedding two weeks ago. Our guests were mainly from the Netherlands, therefore our choice of band was very important to us, considering the fact that our guests cannot sing along to every English song. However, John and his band really know how to entertain any crowd, so friendly, funny, and really understood the vibe and how to start the party! I would recommend them without hesitation, thanks again for the amazing evening🥰

Worth every penny that I paid
I hired the band for a Masonic charity ball and have to say that they were worth every penny that I paid. A good range of music to suit all tastes and managed to keep the dance floor humming for most of the evening culminating with a mass sing along. I would definitely hire them again.
