Having seen Front Cover as part of a CSE show upon returning from Afghanistan, and subsequently at a mate's wedding and been absolutely dazzled on both occasions

-Tim Barker

Sam and Andy played at our wedding last week and we were so impressed. With a good mix of music from across the decades, they were fantastic and got everyone on the dance floor. Do not hesitate to book them!

Sam and Andy thank you so much for making our day so special.

We first saw Sam & Andy at Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. After getting engaged we knew we wanted them to play at our wedding. They were absolutely amazing - they had everyone on their feet for their entire sets! We have had so many amazing comments about the music and how much fun they both were :-) they really did help to make our Wedding an even more special day. We can't recommend them highly enough! Book them for your wedding/event - you won't be disappointed!!!

-Zoe & James Gardiner

Front cover played for us on decompression in Cyprus, what an experience!!! honestly made our stop over at Cyprus a truly memorable event, what a massively talented band, I don't think I've cheered that hard in many years.
If you have a chance to see them live or book them, I can't recommend them more!
Thank you Gorgeous Sam and Andy for the awesome night!

-Grateful soldier

Ive seen this band perform in Afghanistan, they were absolutely unbelievable, will be looking for for any of their tour dates in the uk

-Gary Caffell December 2013

Saw Front Cover on decompression on the way home from Afghanistan, They were absolutely awesome! Made our delay worthwhile because we got to see them twice! Thanks for the amazing show, and i'd advise anyone to book them for any function, they will make it amazing.

-Happy Soldier

Front Cover were brilliant. My wife chose them having seen them on a CSE show in Afghanistan. I hadn't seen them but the hugely lived up to her hype and did a fantastic job. They were both musically excellent and also extremely good craic. Sam and Andy are both really good fun and when it cs for them to finish their last set the packed dance room were begging for more. Great job we couldn't have asked for more.

Walked into covent garden walkabout, and to my surprise my husband and his friends started getting really excited to see front cover again as they had the joy of seeing them in Afghanistan and again on decompression in Cyprus, I very much enjoyed them and will definitely recommend them to anyone. :)

Saw Front Cover in Covent Garden Walkabout on Australia day and been trying to contact them since to book for my wedding...glad to have tracked them down...great band.


A friend of ours saw Front Cover perform in Afghanistan last year and thought they were fantastic.


Sound like a band...but there's only two of wont be dissapointed if you book Front Cover.

-Andy Gill

I first saw Sam and Andy whilst deployed to Afghanistan in Kandahar and thought they were fantastic. I was lucky enough to see them again whilst going through decompression in Cyprus in early Dec


Just saw you in Cyprus and you did a fantastic set....thanks...


We booked Front Cover for our wedding in Devon last weekend and are so happy that we did - they were fantastic!! They played 3 great sets, 1 low key during our drinks reception and then 2 dance floor fillers. All of our guests were full of praise and couldn't believe how versatile they were - everything from Black Eyed Peas to Guns 'n' Roses - their repertoire is even broader than indicated here. Please do not hesitate to book them, you will not be disappointed!!!!

-Rebecca & Chris

Make the sound of a full band....great vocals...great set and everyone loved them at our event.

-Robert Hope

Incredible incredible performance - Sam and Andy made the evening for us. If you are reading this - book Front Cover for your wedding now or we'll send the boys round. We guarantee that you will LOVE every single song they play. Thanks guys!!!!

-Ed + Alex

"Hi Alex
On Wednesday 9 February 2011, following hours of listening to artists from various companies on the web, I had decided upon Front Cover to perform live for us at our local Memorial Hall, in celebration of our joint 50th Wedding Anniversary and my 70th birthday on 2nd April 2011. After our conversation, you contacted me again to say that the duo Front Cover were returning to their native Australia on the 5th April for their wedding and may not be able to attend. Later, you contacted me again, and confirmed that they would like to come, saying it was an omen that we had been together for 50 years.
What a brilliant talented couple they are! Engaging with their audience, they gave us a magnificent performance, which started in a relaxed mellow way while people talked and the food was served. Then they followed with song after song and superb instrumental accompaniment. The guitar solo was breath-taking. Everyone was dancing the night away including one aged eight and two aged eighty.
Our guests did not want to let them go cheering 'encore, encore', but they had a long way to go home. I hope they both have a long and happy marriage - they make a great couple and a team in perfect harmony.
You've probably guest that I would certainly recommend them to anyone organising a big celebration.
Who knows, perhaps I'll have them again for my 80th birthday.
Kind regards
Pat Ashburner" May 2011
