"thank-you both for being part of it all"
As many people know, Hard Cover has a special relationship with one of Canberra's top wedding photographers - Lisa Lois Photography. We offer music+photography packages which have been very popular over the last 3-4 years. Here is some feedback from one of these clients who got married earlier in the year.
Lisa, we truly appreciated the way you made us feel so comfortable while capturing the most gorgeous candid photos for us all day. You were so fun to have around on our special day, so positive and so flexible in following us around, from home to the church to the photos to the reception! We also appreciated your professionalism in working so well with our videographer Adam. You have gone above and beyond to cater to our every request and put together such a beautiful album for us that we are so excited to see! We can't thank you enough for all of your dedication and hard work and capturing such special moments for us.
Sean, we absolutely loved having you sing solo for us at our ceremony and are so thankful for your extra time in helping to make our wedding such a beautiful day. The band on the night were AMAZING! We have seriously had so many of our guests comment on how incredible the band were and we just loved how your songs set the scene for the night and got many of our guests up and dancing. So please extend our thank you's to them all as well!
Our wedding day was such a special day for us, one that we will hold close to our hearts for a lifetime, thank you both for being part of it all.

"restored my faith in live music!"
This winter, we've had the awesome opportunity to perform and play down at Threadbo. Over the ski season we have performed 3 times at Threadbo and once at Perisher. Here's some feedback left on our Facebook page after our last time at the Schuss Bar in Threadbo in August.
Just spent a Saturday night in Thredbo watching these guys! They totally rocked the Schuss Bar and everyone was floored by their talent. Song after song with hardly any rest. You guys are true musicians and have restored my faith in live music! Keep doing what you are doing and thanks for being such generous and kind people, your love of performing radiates from your souls and you are damn good entertainers!
"your timeliness communication and professionalism was flawless"
While our Facebook page and website is chock-a-block of Sean, Tim and Eshan, one vital person in the Hard Cover team is their Booking Manger - Annalisa. Without her, the boys would spend considerable amounts of time answering emails, replying to requests and updating calendars. Fortunately, her efforts and hard work is not lost on many of our clients.
We hope you had a great Christmas and New Year.
We just wanted to say a big thankyou to both the boys and yourself for playing a huge part in our wedding. From the moment we watched a short video on Facebook we knew they were exactly what we were after. On the day the boys were nothing short of amazing. They created a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere that set the scene perfectly. The owner of Centennial Vineyards stated they were the best band that have played at their venue and our guests walked away in awe. Annalisa, your timeliness communication and professionalism was flawless filling us with complete confidence. We would recommend Hard Cover to anyone and are so glad you made our special day.

"The atmosphere that you helped us create was incredible and our guests have not stopped talking about how much fun they had."
On Saturday we played at a wedding at Lake Crackenback - ceremony and reception. From the get-go, a young boy was taken with the music and when we had a chance, we took a few minutes to have a chat. He told us that he played guitar and he really liked the Ed Sheeran song, "Thinking Out Loud"
Once we got to the reception, he stood or danced right in front of us as soon as we picked up the pace so we handed a tambourine....and he joined the band for the rest of the nite! Never discourage the young one we reckon :)
Hi Guys, words cannot express our gratitude for the amazing contribution that you made to our wedding on Saturday at Lake Crackenback Resort & Spa.You were sensational and the absolute highlight of our wedding! The atmosphere that you helped us create was incredible and our guests have not stopped talking about how much fun they had. The dance floor was full all night long! Young Aiden was so chuffed that he could help you out on the tambourine. It really was the best day of our lives so far! Cheers from Alison Signor and Dave Signor!
"...the music would make or break the wedding and Hard Cover well and truly made it!!"
There's nothing quite like being able to provide a special service to someone on one of the biggest occasions of their life. Even though we are doing numerous weddings, we try to give every single one our everything because no matter how many weddings we do, it's almost always our clients 1st!
Back from our honeymoon and just wanted to say thank you again to Hard Cover for making our wedding day AMAZING. We knew they'd make walking down the aisle special, but the minute they started to sing me down the aisle the tears came, was just beautiful!
The boys hardly took a break, not only was everyone raving about how good the song choices were. Every single person who commented said how they just did not stop.
Sean and Tim were just fantastic when it came to helping me to prepare for my surprise song for my husband which added to the fantastic experience with Hard Cover.
I always said that the music would make or break the wedding and Hard Cover well and truly made it!! The dance floor was packed the entire night and when the "one more song" chant began THE boys were happy to play a couple more!
A number of my family and friends ARE in love and trying to find excuses, house warmings, 50th birthdays, anything to have them at an event again.
Thank you for making our even so truly memorable! We loved having you a part of our special day, a day we'll never forget!!
'...entertainment from the beginning to the end...'
Hard Cover had the privilege to play for Directorate of Defence Aviation and Air Force Safety social club mid-year function. The night was a hit and by the end of the evening, 3 or 4 of the attendees had been up to have a sing with us and everyone had had a twirl on the dance floor.
Quite unexpectedly, we received this lovely note the other day. Knowing that we've been able to help our customers have a great occasion and let go and enjoy themselves is what makes this job fun!
The Hard Cover band was a most enjoyable band to listen to; the harmonies and musical talent in the group were abundant in the group. The band was entertaining from the beginning to the end of the evening accomodating our guests requests to make the night a memorable experience for all. Several of our guests even had the opportunity to sing a tune or two with the band.
Once again, thanks for your assistance in arranging the band to attend. It was important that we provide our social members and guests an enjoyable mid-year function and your actions have allowed us to do just that. Please pass on to the members of Hard Cover that all of our guests enjoyed a great night.
'Thanks soooo much for playing at our party, one to remember...'
You always kind of expect the un-expected at Christmas Parties. We all have stories of that guy who got just a little bit too happy and danced all night with just about everyone in the department or the normally quiet lady who keeps to herself suddenly leading the macarena - from on top of the bar. It's not called the 'silly season' for nothing. However, we were pleasantly surprised last Friday at a departmental Xmas party when a young lady - I'm guessing about 9yrs old maybe? - started dancing alone on the floor in front of us to all our tunes and requesting One Direction songs. We happily obliged and she promptly danced the whole song just like on the video clip! It wasn't long before there was a new center of attention at the party and Xmas party had more live entertainment than it had bargained for. Overall - a fantastic time and Sean is watching his back as Hard Cover may have a new lead singer/dancer in the near future!!
"There were 500 staff at our Departmental Xmas party yesterday, I couldn't walk past anyone without them stopping me and telling me how awesome you guys were. Seriously, public servants - what an extremely hard crowd to please... but... you totally smashed it! thanks sooooo much for playing at our party, one to remember..ps if you need a 4th band member, I think little Sophia will join in a flash! Cheers guys!!"
'These boys are awesome...'
One of the great things about what we do is that we are often fortunate enough to be a part of one of the big moments in a person's life - their wedding day. It's a real privilege for us to be able to do that, especially when we are asked to play the bride and her father down the aisle as we were for this fanatastic couple.
"Basically we loved you!
These boys are awesome! From soft background ceromony music while wedding guests arrived, to singing me down the grassy isle then dancing along with them into the night! They had a great range of music and seemed happy for everyone to sing along and even let a few guests get up with them to have a go. Everyone loved them and there charismatic personalities...especially us!!"
