The Cover Up is a 4 piece covers band. We seem to specialise in 50th birthday parties – maybe that’s just showing our age – but we are available for any type of party/gathering where there are people who’d like to dance, sing, listen to live music and have a good time. For all the band members being in The Cover Up isn’t the ‘day job’.
It’s a means of entertainment and our view is that if we are having fun our audience will have fun too!
Our set list covers a wide range of songs that show the band members’ eclectic musical taste. From funk to rock to pop….. and back again and our main criteria when choosing a new song is ‘Will this get people onto the dance floor?’.
Newick Folk play the music of these islands. This means mainly traditional music plus anything else that takes our fancy. That could range from Lily the Pink and My Old Man’s a Dustman to the themes from Captain Pugwash or Blackadder and maybe even Rave on / Bye Bye Love or the La Mer. We set out to entertain you and we love it when people get up and dance. We play at lots of Ceilidhs for Weddings and significant birthday events where there is a wide range of ages.
We are based in Newick and play many local events and sessions throughout Sussex with occasional ventures to Kent, Surrey and the nearer bits of London

More about Turning Pointe:
At Turning Pointe School of Dance we offer professional Dance training in Ballet, Tap, Modern and Jazz for children aged three all the way up to Advanced Level, including adult classes. We are a well-established school with a 50 year history in the area, and offer classes in Haywards Heath, Lindfield, Plumpton, Balcombe and Lewes.
We value every pupil as an individual, and whilst many of our students are offered places at prestigious conservatoires and universities (including The Royal Ballet School, London Studio Centre, The BRIT School, London Contemporary School of Dance, Trinity Laban, and Northern School of Contemporary Dance) others attend lessons purely as a hobby and a form of exercise, but the escapism and enjoyment they gain from the classes is just as important.
Our pupils have the opportunity to take exams in RAD Ballet and ISTD Modern and Tap if they wish to do so, and every two years we put on a large production in a professional theatre. We also enjoy performing at community events like Lindfield Arts Festival, and hope that you will enjoy watching some of our dancers today! More information about Turning Pointe can be found on their website here.
Double Duos is a unique combination of four instrumentalists mainly performing repertoire from the “Golden Age” of shows from the 1920s to the 1950s, but also some later items in the style.
Two clarinets/saxophones, a horn and a double bass recapture the glamour and excitement of the periods through special arrangements written specifically to exploit the strengths of this ensemble.
Double Duos delivers a warm and varied sound, which brings versatility to the performances.
