Check out what our clients have to say about us:
“The best band there ever was! But really…. they are amazing! I had Katrina and the guitarist play/sing during our ceremony and they were incredible, people were raving about how amazing they sounded! During the reception, they killed it too, playing all the right songs, people were on the dance floor from the very beginning until the end of the very last song! Everybody loved them, and we did too! Highly highly recommend them for any event!” – Kelsey M. 6/17/17
“The Cover Down band was the life of our wedding reception (in November)! We were relatively anxious about hiring a band unheard, and luckily were able to hear the band play – Danny, Katrina, Mike, etc. – at a local bar about 2 months before booking them – We were sold within the first 10 seconds of hearing them – they have an incredible energy and fantastic talent. From the first point of contact, Mike was clear in his communications, professional and easy to work with! The day of, of course, we had changes and the band was very accommodative and to this day, we get so many compliments on their performance and energy! Couldn’t have asked for more!” –Priti P. 4/8/17
“Cover Down Band was amazing!!! They were hands down the best cover band we’ve heard in 20 years. They were very accommodating and easy to schedule with. They provided tons of energy to our party and made the night absolutely unforgettable. We will definitely be using them again for all of our parties. I could not recommend them more highly!!” -Joshua J. 4/8/17
“I wanted to say how wonderful Cover Down was at our first annual company Christmas Party. Everyone was extremely happy with the songs that were played and how the band presented on stage. I am still getting compliments from employees and friends about how good the music was. We can’t thank Cover Down enough for such a wonderful and unforgettable evening. We will definitely use them again and highly recommend them for any type of entertainment. Awesome job!” -Suzanne S. 12/29/16
“Cover Down was AMAZING! We had so much fun. My fiance and I are even in talks about hiring them for our wedding. Mike is wonderful to work with on the details. He knows what he is talking about and requires zero hand holding. Thank you guys again for a wonderful night!” -Rachel J. 12/2/16
“My husband and I are big music lovers and it was one of our top priorities to have a great live band at our wedding. We wanted a band that was affordable and offered DJ services as well, but most of all we wanted a band with a great song list. Cover Down was perfect! My husband found the band and handled most of the communication since music was one of his “wedding tasks.” He said Mike was professional, quick to respond, and very easy to work with. He had a pretty laid back style, but anything we asked for was no problem. The band clearly has a lot of experience and didn’t need any hand-holding. They were also willing to drive from Plano to Tulsa (where our wedding was held) at no charge! We asked the band to act as emcees in addition to providing entertainment, and they were great about double checking the pronunciation of our wedding party and toasters’ names, which was nice. They also provided lighting and all of their own AV equipment. The lighting was enough to enhance a very large ballroom (we also had a separate uplighting vendor), and the colors and patterns from Cover Down’s spotlights made for some amazing photos. But of course the best part was their MUSIC! Cover Down played all of our favorite songs and nothing from our do-not-play list, and our guests had a blast! We have so many great photos of guests dancing up a storm, and at the end of the night no one wanted to leave! Good thing we had an after party!” – Andrea P. 9/24/16
“This band was amazing. I would book them again in a heartbeat. We had a black tie wedding in Tulsa and the band played the perfect soundtrack to every aspect of the reception. I give them my highest recommendations. Completely professional. Thank you guys so much!” -James P. 9/24/16
“I can’t even begin to express our gratitude for you and your band members performance Saturday night! You guys were absolutely amazing! The amount of compliments we received on the band is more than I could even keep up with. Seriously, from the bottom of our hearts, THANK YOU! We had the BEST time!! Please know that you and the others did an outstanding job and we wanted to thank you for all the hard work you and the team put in to make my wedding so special!!! Thank you so much!” – Allison G. 9/12/16
“Absolutely a great band, I told them I thought they should be charging more money, and I still believe that. They were fabulous and extremely talented. Couldn’t have had a better experience.” – Joel G. 7/2/16
“We had worked with Cover Down for two previous parties, so when our daughter became engaged, one of the first phone calls we made was to reserve the band for the reception! We knew that the reception would be unforgettable if they provided the music. Of course, they did not disappoint! The reception was so much fun, that people were still dancing when it was time for the bride & groom send off! The band has a gift for reading the crowd, and plays music that keeps people dancing. You know it’s going to be an amazing event when Cover Down is on the stage!” – Michele F 6/30/16 Link to the Wedding Wire review
“Cover Down was absolutely amazing! Guests at our wedding could not give enough compliments on how well the band performed. We had to move some scheduling things around as some items inevitably get delayed, but the entire band was super accommodating and helped our special day be just that. We considered a few bands, but went to see them all live first, and Cover Down was easily the most professional and talented band we checked out. My wife and I have gone out of our way to catch some of their other live gigs and always enjoy ourselves. We look forward to catching them in the future too!” -Michael P 3/26/16
“Guests loved Cover Down! Kept everyone dancing all evening. Great choices and selection of music. We were able to squeeze in last minute songs. Musically well-versed performers, professional performance; Worked with our diverse selection of music to perfectly match the event. Perfectly-timed announcements. Super flexible with scheduling play time around our events of the evening. Enjoyable to work and plan with very prompt correspondence. Reasonable price. Good suggestions on how to structure the reception schedule. Private last dance for the bride and groom that we particularly enjoyed! Book early and enjoy!” – Chelsea D. 10/17/15
“Thanks a million to Cover Down band for helping us realize our vision of an unforgettable wedding reception on Saturday, September 26, 2015. Our top priorities were GREAT live music and happy guests who were dancing and having fun all night—and that’s exactly what we got! Coupled with the endless compliments from our guests, we simply can’t recommend them highly enough. The band was the perfect combination of talent, sophistication, and fun. With a long year of planning and the wedding now behind us, we’ve had a chance to reflect on everything we did and everything we spent. We can say with absolute certainty that this was the best money we spent and that we’d hire Cover Down again without hesitation. Our point of contact, Mike, was so professional, accommodating to special requests, and a joy to work with in helping make our dream reception a reality. Even though we really loved what we saw and heard when we previewed the band at a public performance, we still couldn’t have fully imagined how incredibly essential they would be to creating the perfect vibe and energy we wanted to achieve. So if you want to guarantee that you’ll have great music and dancing guests, do yourself a favor and hire this band!! Hanna & Matt” – 9/26/15 Link to the Wedding Wire review

“THANK YOU!!!!! Cover Down was absolutely amazing! I sent out a survey to all the guests (720) asking for feedback about the event – the #1 comment….”The band was awesome!” I cannot tell you how many emails I have received, comments the night of that were made – all about how incredible the band was. I can’t thank you enough for coming to Tulsa to play for our event. With that said…I would LOVE to have Cover Down play again next year. The event will be at the same venue (Exchange Center at Expo Square), Saturday, February 6, 2016. Please let me know what I need to do to make that happen. Thank you so much.” Liz 2/26/15

“First let me say that I would hire Cover Down again and again and again if I needed to. They were excellent. Great band that kept everyone on the dance floor all night. We had our wedding on New Year’s Eve and there was a lot going on but the band kept cool and made it memorable. It is always hard to put total trust in someone you have met a couple times to pull off the biggest day of your life, but they were awesome. We paid for Cover Down and got Emerald City quality.
Pros: Great Band – they can play any genre, they are tight with their transitions, take several classic songs and extend them so the crowd could keep dancing (I noticed this several times). Best Value you will find in Dallas for sure – I’m not exactly sure how much they cost, but I will tell you that they were lower than most other bands we checked out. They handle their own bookings so you are not paying for any agent fees, they also have all their own equipment and do not charge you to use it. It is just a simple flat fee. They are attractive and look young – I’ve been to weddings where the 60 year old wedding singer had to take a bathroom break every 10 minutes or the creepy old bassist kept trying to hit on the wedding party. Proven fact that if you look good, people will think you sound better. They don’t really need to but they do!
Stage presence (off stage presence) – they’re not up there playing air guitar, or making fools of themselves. They own the stage with confidence and personality. They do not babble on in between songs, except if they are giving an announcement ‘after this song, we’re going to do the cake cutting.’ During random songs, they have different members come out into the crowd and play/dance with the crowd. Some pretty good footage of me playing air saxophone next to their saxophonist on one such occasion, I really get into it. Their bassist spins his hair during some 80’s hair metal cover. It’s great.
Communicate with you regularly throughout the booking process and event. We were getting married New Year’s Eve. We met with Mike to review plans the weekend after Thanksgiving. They were responding to emails and questions over Christmas time. I felt really bad about these timings, but due to our hectic schedules this was the only time we had to meet and they never complained once about it. In fact Mike invited us to his home and offered us glasses of wine as his family was getting ready to go to some holiday event. Top notch.
Have experience with weddings and work with your coordinator. – My wife doesn’t like to do things ‘normally’ but it was great for them to make recommendations off of what they had previously done and what people typically do. The band is such a big influence on the flow of the wedding it was great that they not only communicated with us but several times when talking to them they would say ‘Oh yes, we already talked to (our wedding planner) about that.’ Great to know everyone was in the loop with each other. Our crowd called for an encore, it was provided. After the last song the crowd kept chanting ‘One more Song.’ They said they weren’t going to play one unless they had approval from my wife and I. We were right next to the stage on the dance floor giving the thumbs up. Someone in the crowd shouted ‘September’ by Earth, Wind, and Fire. It was the most random request I had ever heard, but it was a perfect end to the night, and I was shocked that they just played it perfectly off the cuff….Adam D.” – 1/18/15 Link to TheKnot: NYE Wedding 12/31/14 Review

“Our experience with Cover Down was incredible. We knew they were great, but their performance and energy far surpassed our expectations. Our dance floor was full the entire night, and no one wanted to leave. We are still getting so many compliments on Cover Down, everyone loved them! They are very accommodating and easy to work with. I would recommend them for any event. Andrew M.” – 5/17/14

“We hired Cover Down for our wedding. They were awesome! They were easy to work with, did everything we asked, and are very talented musicians. They had our reception up and dancing and we had numerous guests compliment us on the band and ask us how we found them. I would definitely recommend Cover Down for your wedding/event. Thanks!” – Andy P. 9/22/12
