The Cover Up played at my birthday on Saturday night and they were so awesome! Everyone at the party had a fantastic time and I am still hearing rave revues from all my friends about what a great band I had at my party. Thanks to you guys you made my party a huge success. You are all a bunch of great people with huge personalities which made dealing with you so easy. Thanks so much from Tara & I you made our birthdays so much better. I am so glad we booked The Cover Up and if anyone wants one of the best Cover's bands around then this band is for you. Cheers to the band. Kim.

Kia ora Sharon and The Cover Up Band I would like to thank Dwayne and The Cover Up Band for an absolutely nasty show last night held at the Rendezvous hotel for the New Zealand College of Chiropractic 10th Graduating Class Dinner and celebration. Wow, from the very first to the very last song you guys rocked the hotel and kept our crew on the floor, they were pumped and loved you guys, Dwayne and Chantel you guys sing real well, great repertoire with diversity and variety ....awesome. Nice and tight in the rhythm section dudes, and tasty liks on guitar Shayne, very professional group. Great mix and techy tweaking there luke. I have no probelm to refer the cover up band for any up and coming gigs and functions that our association and college has. Thanks for making the night a success. See you guys again in the future. PS. Thanks Dwayne for the extra use of your system, setting up a mic for speeches, lights, and backing music for the 2.5 hours before you started, I really appr

Hi Karl Thanks for the email, I was going to send one to you today as well. The Cover Up were fantastic!!!! You couldn't have got us a better band, everyone has said how great they were and how much they enjoyed the evening, so thanks heaps!!! The band themselves were quality guys too, really lovely and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks so much again.
Hay Karl, Was totally awesome aye! The Cover Up were great! Really good! Real professionaly- arrived, set up, sound check, headed out somewhere while we had our class dinner, then came back and played for 2 and a half hours! Was wicked! They sounded great, they played songs everyone knew and we all got into it. Thanks heaps for recommending them! I'm getting married next year and will probably get these guys back again to play there! Cheers, Neal
