About us

The Cover Up’s have brought a fun,  youthful feel back to the old classics which is proving to be extremely popular with clients looking for a sophisticated band for their Black-Tie Dinners, as this incredible group, whilst still exceptionally young themselves, have taken on some of the most mature and melodic music in the industry. Their beautiful harmonies and simple acoustic interpretations of popular songs are exquisite. Combine this with the latest Top 40 Hits and a selection of Local South African songs, this group know how to entertain a crowd!

 Whilst they haven’t changed the music – believing that these classic became classics for a reason – this young group makes a connection with the 25-plus market of today simply by being their peers. Following in the footsteps of youthful legends like Michael Buble, who made it “cool” to revisit classic swing numbers, The Cover Up’s bringing a level of sophistication to their performance.

 The brain-child of Simeon Hamman (Vocals, Acoustic Guitar & Banjo) the standard band is a Four Piece and consists of keyboard, percussion & violin which gives them the flexibility to play either a soft background set or a slightly more vibrant set … and yes … there are a few of the latest hits thrown in just for those events that get a little “warmed up” (available on request or as the night demands!)
