Private Function-Milton Keynes
Michelle Watson said: "We recently hired 'Cover Up' for my husbands 50th birthday party. We gave the band a strict brief of '80's only' music and even went through a list of songs prior to the evening that we would like them to perform. They certainly surpassed all of our expectations. Maria and Mark really entered into the spirit of the evening and came complete with 80's clothes and a Limahl mullet (we had to convince our guests that the hair/wig was not real). Their performance was excellent, fun and very professional. Fabulous sound and great voices. One guest commented that this was the best CD of the 80's they had ever heard. I don't think a live band could receive a higher compliment."
