"We booked the band to play at our Silver Wedding Anniversary party on Saturday 19th May. The Covered played a 2 hour set without a break keeping the dance floor busy with classic numbers. We thoroughly enjoyed them and had so many compliments from our guests for our choice of band! They were very professional, looked the part and engaged well with their audience, we couldn't have made a better choice and would highly recommend them."

"The Covered performed at my wedding last May. I couldn't have asked for a better band - their performance was slick and energetic from start to finish. They covered modern songs, just as well as old classics. Every member of this band is a total star, each of them standing out in their own way.
They performed some of mine and my husbands favourite songs, reducing us to tears with the emotional ballads and making every person in the 100 strong crowd dancing till the early hours with the faster numbers!
I also appreciated John's organisation in the lead up to the day, he knew the best timings to suggest, the best order of songs, the best way to do the sound check. He leaves no stone unturned.
Without a doubt, the best decision we made on our wedding day to have them perform. I could not recommend them more. 10/10."

"We booked The Covered for our recent wedding party on 7th October and it was one of the easiest and best decisions we made!! John and the gang are incredible talented and so accommodating that they even learnt a Chicago song for the day for us! Absolutely blown away by the set up and so were our guests. We would highly recommend The Covered for any event where you want a full dance floor. Thanks again you guys, you smashed it!"
Janine Hughes Griffiths
"We booked the covered for my 50th birthday party and wow! They were amazing! The dance floor was full all night with some great songs for all ages. They gave a fantastic professional performance and everyone commented on how much they enjoyed the music.....it even got my teenage son dancing.....and that never happens! Thankyou so much for making my night and singing the request at the end. I will definatly be recommending you to everyone."

"We booked The Covered for the Mayor of Spelthorne's Charity Ball in April and they were superb. It was a high profile event for the borough and John's attention to detail and responsiveness before the event was very reassuring; despite some unexpected set-up problems caused by the venue on the day the band worked effectively as a team and met the schedule; and the music of course was fantastic. We'd submitted a "favourites" list of music from the 1970's and 80's which they performed beautifully - people were up and dancing from the first to the last song, whilst others enjoyed sitting and watching the show. It was a seamless performance and made for a perfect evening. Thank you one and all.
"The Covered were the band for my ball as Mayor of Spelthorne last week. They had allowed me to give them my preferred titles and kept to my requests which, as I had expected, was very popular with my guests. They also ensured that people weren't blasted out of their seats. The result was people kept dancing all night and no-one had to disappear to chat. I have since received overwhelming praise from so many that they had had a fabulous evening. I too thoroughly enjoyed myself and can't thank the group enough. Definitely a 5-star review from me. Thanks guys."
The Covered played at our wedding in London recently and from the first minute after we booked to their last song at the wedding they were thoroughly professional, personable, and great fun. They played a two-hour-plus set that got everyone up dancing like lunatics. What more could you ask for!? Their song list spans from the 60s through to the now and the band read the crowd to make sure the next song played is going to keep everyone up and dancing.
We booked them knowing very little about them, but we're so glad we did. John was extremely helpful throughout the process and goes the extra yard to make his clients happy.
