Their performance was outstanding and no one left the dance floor - they were just so cool and mixed up the set list with some classics and more modern songs.

They were simply fantastic and every has commented how brilliant they were! During their sets they had everyone up on the dance floor and the atmosphere was fantastic. They did a great job in covering our first dance song and we greatly appreciate that they were able to do that for us. Prior to their set we managed to have a quick chat with them and they were extremely professional and lovely. There really is nothing much more I can add. They really helped to cap what was a brilliant day for us. If you could please pass on our thanks to them from us then that would be hugely appreciated. Thanks”Andrew and Emma - Wedding, Royal Liver Building, Liverpool
“Hi Phoebe, Cover Cats were brilliant! Lots of people commented how fantastic they were, and they kept people up dancing – which is exactly what we wanted. I was also a bit concerned about how loud a 7 piece band would be in the venue, but the sound level was perfect and people not dancing could still talk. We really appreciated that they had learned the song we proposed, and all in all we were completely satisfied with the band and would like you to extend our thanks to them. Thanks!”Mark Lloyd - Wedding, Farington Lodge Hotel, Farington,Preston, Lancashire

“Both myself and Emma wanted to thank Cover Cats for the fantastic performance at our wedding reception on the 14th May at Shaw Hill, Chorley. The band were fantastic and topped off an amazing day for us both. So many of our guests have told us how much they loved the band, and that they were by far the best wedding band that they had seen perform. The fact that the dancefloor was packed all through the sets was testiment to how much everyone loved the performance, and we would not hesitate to recommend the band or hire them again for any future events that we may be having. We hope the band enjoyed playing at our wedding as much as we enjoyed their performance (even though we did make them play two encores!), and would like to pass on our deep gratitude to the them all for helping to make our wedding day as fantastic as it was.”Chris and Emma Marston - Wedding, Shaw Hill Golf & Country Club, Lancashire

I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that?
Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests?
We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up?
90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play?
At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for?
We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception?
Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute live lounge-style set as an add-on which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.
Do you have your own PA and lighting?
Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on?
The published guide price is based on our 6-piece line-up option performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in Liverpool. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that?
Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment?
Will you perform our first dance?
Yes, as long as we have two weeks' notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require?
We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require?
2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks?
Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
Can we see you play live before booking?
As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
