Headliner: Under The Covers
May 1, 2024

When it comes to cover bands, there’s a certain responsibility bestowed upon each band member: to put on a memorable performance whilst staying true to whoever it is they’re paying tribute to. Cambridgebased cover band Under The Covers takes on this monumental task and then some with their diverse collection of cover performances.

The trio themselves have been together for two years, but their history goes back further; all three established a passion for music from a young age. Having fined-tuned their playing over the last two decades, they’ve grown and developed into a prolific cover band, performing at weddings, corporate gigs, birthdays, and more! They perform as either a duo or a trio, but the size of the band doesn’t impact how effective their setlist is.

If there were any indicator of how wide this band’s range is, it would surely be their selection of songs in their set; they perform rip-roaring hits from over the last 70 years with ease and finesse. If you’re after the iconic, energetic hits of the mid-20th century like ‘Johnny B. Goode’ and ‘I Feel Good’, then this band delivers. I think we’d all agree that a bit of ‘80s nostalgia never hurt anyone, as evident in their renditions of ‘Footloose’ and the power anthem of ‘I Want To Break Free’. Yet if you want something more modern, the guitar-driven, grungy hits of the noughties like ‘Mr. Brightside’ and ‘Year 3000’ are sure-fire crowd-pleasers. No matter what genre or decade of music you prefer, Under The Covers have you covered.

Even though their setlist of songs are all iconic classics in their own right, Under The Covers are able to add their own unique flavour to each one, seamlessly transitioning from one song to the next. It’s a celebration as much as a tribute, one which enthusiastic audiences are more than happy to partake in.

Under The Covers may be a locally-based band, but they’ve previously been up and down the country bringing their renditions to audiences far and wide. From Plymouth to the Peak District, Under The Covers have been going county to county bringing their classic renditions to countless crowds.
