“Great gig on Saturday at the Phoenix. Persuade my friends to come and they weren't disappointed. Loved hearing you guys do Billy Jean - your bass player was brilliant - I bet his fingers were aching afterwards! And what a bonus having (as a guest?) the sax player who can also sing so well. Excellent stuff.” Peter H
“Undercovers in the Open Air Great to see this local band playing again at a charity event in the beer garden at the Phoenix Inn Hartley Wintney. Their versatile repertoire catered for people of all ages made even more enjoyable in the sunshine with good food and drink. Fantastic band for private parties etc.” An ardent fan Rosie
“Saw The Undercovers perform at a local pub festival in Hampshire recently . They sounded and looked great - full of energy with a great range of music to suit the audience which was all ages from youngsters upwards. Great at getting audience involvement (within what’s allowed) and really made everyone’s first post pandemic live music experience very special “ Fran

Private Party, Audleys Wood Hotel, Basingstoke
"The Undercovers played at my recent 50th birthday party at Audleys Wood Hotel - from start to finish, they were absolutely brilliant!! I have always loved The Police - and they learnt a song for me that was not on their playlist - Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic - can honestly say that this made my night! Furthermore, the theme of my party was Think Pink - in lieu of presents, I requested guests made donations to charity - and had to wear pink! The band went above and beyond in also joining in and wearing my colour choice - again, how very thoughtful and more than I could have asked for! I would not hesitate to recommend this band to anyone, for any occasion - their music is brilliant, varied and sung with feeling! I know they will make any occasion a floor filler!! Tracy"
Private Party, Burghfield Bridge
"I hired undercovers to play at my 50th birthday party. I was keen to have a focal point that would get everyone up dancing. And they really delivered. They created an amazing party atmosphere and we danced until our feet ached. Thanks Undercovers for helping make my birthday so special. Sandra"
Private Party, Odiham
"I just wanted to write a few words to say what a success my party was and how you all helped to make it such a great night. When I decided to have a 50th birthday party, we decided very early on that we would like a proper band to play rather than a disco. When we heard you play in a local pub we decided that we like the look of you all and you were playing all the right songs as the pub was "rocking". From the very start when you arrived, you all looked very professional and confident, you made the most of the space we had for you to perform and were very happy to go along with all the timings and details that we needed. As soon as you started to play you began to entertain us. Playing great classics old and new, everybody loved the songs. You helped us create a great party atmosphere and it bought lots of people onto the dance floor. By the end of the night everyone was up and dancing about, which was a perfect end to the birthday celebrations. Thanks again for playing at our party, you made it a great night and will certainly recommend you to others."
Private Party, Sunbury-on-Thames
"Many thanks for making the evening go with a swing. Hope we'll be in a position to need a band again in the future - we will certainly know who to call. Pat and Sandy"

"Was planning to pop along to the local pub and have a quiet drink whilst watching the band - ended up with everyone else on the dance floor and getting home far too late! I blame the band!!

Lodge of Perfect Harmony Ladies Festival, Beaumont House Hotel
"The Undercovers Band played at Lodge of Perfect Harmony Ladies Festival held on the 29th January 2011 at the Beaumont House Hotel Windsor. They were fantastic and had our Lodge members up and dancing all night. Their choice of songs was just right for the audience and had the right mix of old and new songs for our guests. Their musicianship and vocal harmonies were excellent! I cannot tell you how many compliments I have had from our guests and I cannot recommend them highly enough! Marie and Colin Smith, event organisers, Lodge of Perfect Harmony."
West End Social Club, Woking
"The Undercovers Band played at the West End Social Club for the first time February 2011. They played a great mix of old and new songs in lots of different styles, from the 1960s through to current hits. The musicianship and vocal harmonies were of a very high standard (a particular highlight was 'the Chain' by Fleetwood Mac). The band soon had our audience up and dancing, and they were shouting out for more at the end of the evening. We shall certainly be booking them to play for us again later this year and I am pleased to recommend them to other venues! Nigel Karney, Entertainments, West End Social Club, Woking"

"Dear Juel, We would like to thank you and the rest of the band for playing at our wedding yesterday. We had an amazing day, and the band playing was a fantastic end to the day. We have had comments from so many of our friends and family about how great the band was, and that you played exactly the type of music that all the generations there liked. Many thanks, Rebecca and John"
Private Party, West Byfleet
"I would like to thank you and the Undercovers Band for playing so excellently at our BBQ/party. Everybody at the party said how good the band was. I plan on hold a similar event around the same time next year (too early to pencil in a date at the moment), but I would like you guys to play again. I'll be in contact with around spring next year. Many Thanks, Dario"
Corporate Function, London
"Many thanks for such a fantastic performance on Friday evening, you guys really made the night for us. I've never seen so many of our staff dance the night away like that! Thank you! Louise, Oliver Wyman "
"The Undercovers played our office summer party and they were great! Excellent selection of music that kept everyone happy and on the dance floor all night (from Abba to the Undertones via the Beatles and Amy Winehouse) - and not even a remote whiff of cheese which can be so easy with covers bands... :-) Sarah"

The Brigitte Trust Ball, Denbies Vineyard Dorking
"As a very small charity our annual ball is a very important event as it is a major fundraiser for us. I almost do not want to continue this as I would like to keep this band as my little secret. However as they were so good I feel it is my duty to share it with you. On the night Undercovers were fantastic, they read the night so well, playing just the right number for the mood at the time. I will be booking them again next year and you will not do better if you follow my advice. Marian Elliott Director of Business Development"
