“Fantastic band! Great energy and really put in a good performance for us all to have a good time at our wedding reception. The singer was great and even got in amongst everyone for a couple of songs. Great fun!”

Mike & Helen, Wedding, Bristol, October 2019

“Very talented band. They were great at adapting to what was quite a tricky venue but they got themselves set up and then put on a fantastic show. Everyone had a great time so we're very pleased!”

Danielle, Private Event, London, September 2019

“The Coves really were the difference at our wedding reception, they made such a great atmosphere and just played amazing music. The songs they chose to do were great and everyone was really up for getting involved dancing and singing along. Please pass on our thanks for a really fun and memorable night!”

Ali & Sara, Wedding, Bristol, September 2019

“Really happy that we booked The Coves for our wedding reception. We found it really hard to choose a band out of how many are always on offer but we wouldn't want to have had anyone else now - The Coves were just brilliant! Great music and a very friendly bunch of guys too.”

Jemima & Phil, Wedding, Bristol, August 2019

“Just what we wanted for my brother's party. The Coves fit in really well and put on a couple of great sets that had the whole family as well as Jake's mates all dancing all night. Can't ask for more than that! Very happy!”

Lottie, Private Party, Somerset, August 2019
