  • Amazing!

    Having Tricky Dick play at our wedding was the best decision we made! They created such a fun atmosphere, the dance floor was never empty, and they took the time to hear what my husband and I wanted out of the day. We have no complaints and I would recommend them to anyone!

    Beyond Thrilled!

    To say that we were thrilled with Tricky Dick, would be an understatement. They were complete professionals from the moment we inquired, through the planning, and during the reception. Tony took the time to even meet with the Bride and Groom during the weeks prior to their wedding so he could get to know them as a couple. We have ridiculously large families, and had a very large reception. Somehow the band managed to keep everyone happy from the ages of 4 to 94. They even provided little light up rings and necklaces as well as blow up guitars for the children. The dance floor was never empty, which was phenomenal. I really believe that receptions need only three elements to be a success- food, beverages, and great music. The fact that so many of our guests told us that they had more fun at this wedding than others they’ve have attended is directly attributed to this great band – Tricky Dick! Thank you for everything!

    Amazing Band!

    These guys don’t need any additional positive reviews, as I’m pretty sure they are already booked every weekend through 2019. Yes, they are that freaking good. However, I feel compelled to tell our experience with Tricky Dick & The Cover Ups. Not only do these guys completely rock it out on the stage, but they are as classy and professional as they are rockers. From the very first communication with these guys, I was nothing short of impressed with the responsiveness and guidance they provided me and my wife throughout the wedding planning process. I mean, these guys have a range that is completely unheard of. Not every day do you get to see a band that can play Boogie Shoes all the way to Shut Up and Dance. I had people high-fiving me at my wedding saying they have never had so much fun dancing and singing along at a reception. To take it a step further, Tony Howard is an absolute phenomenal MC and basically ran our entire wedding post ceremony. Oh and by the way, we were married in a vineyard and had no idea how to get sound for our officiant. At the last minute Tony figured it out for us and the ceremony went on without a hitch. Overall, these guys are just awesome and the music was fantastic. If you want your wedding to be remembered forever, you should probably hire these guys. Thank you guys again for making our wedding day so special.

    Tony (Tricky Dick and the Coverups) and his band were FANTASTIC! and so easy to work with! They played during my daughter’s reception last Saturday (11/26/16). I normally don’t dance much but was on the dance floor for most of the evening, as were most of the guests. Please extend my sincere thanks to Tony and his band for a job well done. His keyboard musician was amazing and certainly set the tone for the cocktail hour. Overall, a perfect musical evening!

    My husband and I hired Tricky Dick and the Coverups for our wedding this past November. They went above and beyond and exceeded all expectations! They setup at the venue a day early so we could see the space. They spent time with us on the phone and over e-mail numerous times to ask all the pertinent questions to ensure not only the reception part of the wedding went well, but also the wedding. They arrived at the venue about when I did on the wedding day and assured me everything was taken care of. They managed the sound for the ceremony, worked with our pianist for the ceremony, the judge, and readers to coordinate and direct. Afterward, they prepared for dinner and the reception. Tony stayed close to let me know what was next which was instrumental in the night running smoothly. I had so much on my plate, and in the end decided not to use a wedding planner. Because of Tony and Tricky Dick, I didn’t need one. They did their research, they have the experience, they were informed and professional. By the time dinner and first dances were over, my crowd was ready to dance. The dance floor was PACKED from beginning to end. I’ve never seen anything like it. My 13 year old step son is a great guitarist and one of his solo’s is “Say it Ain’t So” by Weezer. The band connected with Sam ahead of time to be prepared, spent some time early the day of the ceremony to discuss the performance, and about an hour into the reception Sam played with the band. Everyone asks my husband and I what our favorite part of the wedding was, and we both agree it was seeing Sam play with Tricky Dick and how the crowd absolutely went WILD! It was an important part of an amazing day! Everyone says their wedding was the best, but mine really was. Tricky Dick helped us make some awesome memories! Since my wedding two of my friends have been engaged and BOTH hired Tricky Dick for their weddings. It goes to show, they are the BEST! Thanks for everything you’ve done for Ross and I guys…can’t wait to have you play at our five year anniversary!
