Review by Derek G.

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on October 6, 2012From Minneapolis, MN

I can't even begin to tell you how incredible the covers were Saturday night! They had a little something for everyone in the audience and kept everyone on the floor all night. Their energy and enthusiasm kept the crowd pumped up and the music quality and range was fantastic. The right band can make or break a wedding and my one task for the wedding was to pick the band. Thank god I choose The Covers because they killed it and made me look like a hero!

Wedding CeremonyReviewed on September 22, 2012From Saint Paul, MN

I would recommend The Covers to all family and friends!!! They were absolutely amazing. We have had many bands play at family weddings, and they topped them all, in my opinion. We kept getting compliments all night about how great they were and continue to hear about them. Bruce was so easy to work with, made sure to check in with us, and just allowed the night to go absolutely smoothly. Sara singing Adele's version of "Make You Feel My Love" still brings tears to my eyes. The dance floor was packed the entire night--at one point a family member looked out and we had people dancing from 2 to 87 years old. It doesn't get much better than that! Absolutely Amazing!

Wedding ReceptionReviewed on July 21, 2012From Eden Prairie, MN

The Band was awesome all night, we couldn't have been any happier that they played for our wedding. I received compliments all night long that it was the best reception people have ever attended. The band kept people on the dance floor from 4 years old to 90 all night long. I am so glad that we booked the Covers for our wedding reception. So glad that we could get both Jennifer and Sarah they sounded amazing together. Chris & Molly
