Some recent testimonials: (all verifiable)

"Incomparable to any other local bands we have seen over the years and if we ever had any other event, they would be at the top of our list, without hesitation. First class entertainment, first class talent and they delivered a first class service".

Terry and Tanya Chamberlain

"The Covered" absolutely got it right. They played fabulous music both creating and responding to the atmosphere as a well as playing some special very meaningful requests. The more than 230 people all had a ball and the success of the function owes a great deal to professionalism and quality of their performance. Top notch! I would use them again without hesitation. Peter Butler.

We were thrilled with the band. Great musicians, fantastically talented singers! Your choice of music was perfect and we will clearly need a bigger dance floor next year! We do hope you will come and play again in 2017 as you were simply the best band we could have chosen and people were still talking about that evening weeks later. Sir William & Lady McCalpine
