The Covered formed a few years ago and have quickly established themselves as a professional function band, receiving rapturous reviews wherever they’ve played, whether it’s been weddings, private parties, corporate functions or pubs and clubs.
Most of the band are based in London but front man, John Read, has lived in Henley for a number of years. John said “When I formed the band, the desire was not only to entertain people and have fun doing it but also to run everything on a business-like basis and establish a reputation for reliability and professionalism with clients.”
The band is currently a 7 piece, made up of Ryhan on drums, Lewi on bass guitar, Fabio on keyboards, piano and backing vocals, Rik on lead, rhythm guitar and backing vocals, Jack also on lead and rhythm guitar, Sara lead and backing vocals, John lead and backing vocals.

Saturday Night Festival Party
On Saturday evening, The Crooked Billett pop-up pub will host the Festival Party. There will be music from our resident dance band, a full bar service and food, and a real dance floor on which to dance all night (well until 11.30pm anyway!)
As is the tradition at all Trad Rallies, revelries cease at midnight on Saturday evening
and an official SILENCE is observed on Fawley Meadows until 8 am on Sunday.
