"The Buzz":What People are Saying about Run4Cover

“ I couldn’t recommend a greater band than Run4Cover. They are by far the most professional, honest, and passionate band we have had the pleasure of using the last four years at our fundraiser. Run4Cover is the best cover band I have ever heard play live. They are a dynamic group who are always willing to satisfy their customers. They can read your crowd like an open book and play the best songs to get your group up and moving. The performance they provide for your audience is outstanding. They are an exceptional band with many talents in all genres of music. This group will make you want to get up and dance!" Julie Beechinor, Frontier HS FFA Advisor, Bakersfield, CA

"Run 4 Cover is of the highest quality with the highest of professionalism. This band has a wonderful reputation in our community which greatly helped our ticket sales. As a matter of fact, we sold 400 tickets more than normal just because Run 4 Cover was playing!"  Niki Fisher, Hanford SPCA  

"Run4Cover is the simply the best.  Not only are they super talented and just so much fun, but they are dedicated to the causes in this community.  I've had the pleasure of working with them for 13 years in my capacity as President of Visalia Community Enhancement Foundation and they have generously given of their time and effort to help us in our causes.  They have played our Fromage Frolic every year since inception and we have attendees who come JUST because they are the entertainment.  From a professional perspective, they are reliable, professional and just a pure joy to work with.  You will NEVER be disappointed with them!" Carol Hoppert Hays, President, Visalia Community Enhancement Foundation 

“Run4Cover was the perfect band to have at the North Fresno Rotary annual birthday celebration.  The Rotary Club’s members vary in age from the early 30’s to the mid 90’s.  It’s important to have a band that can bridge that gap, so that everyone has a great time.  Run4Cover filled the bill for us perfectly. Working with Mike Wilson to coordinate the event was a pleasure as well.   No difficulty at all-things went off as smoothly as it possibly could.   I would not hesitate to hire Run4Cover again and again.  They were SUPERB! “ Janet Powell , North Fresno Rotary 

“I highly recommend booking Run 4 Cover for any event you are hosting! They were great interacting with the crowd and everyone who came to the Enchanted Playhouse Fundraiser had a blast! We can’t wait to book them again!" Marie Labbee, Enchanted Playhouse Event Coordinator

 “I have been a Visalian for 8 decades, and my wife and I agree that there has never been a musical group of this quality in Central California as good and talented as Run 4 Cover. They have a huge following, and we hire them for many fundraising and personal events. They are the best!” Stan and Wendy Simpson,  Tulare Historical Society 

“Any musician would agree that it’s much more difficult to cover Top 40 hits than play original music. Therein lies the genius of Run 4 Cover, who reign supreme as the kings and queens of filling Central Valley dance floors and keeping them full. Their ability to perfectly reproduce the greatest tunes of every era from the 1950s to today is why they are everyone’s first choice when events call for live music. They are reliable, professional, flexible and a guaranteed good time, and have built a large and loyal following over their many years under the hot lights. That fan base means that adding ‘Run 4 Cover’ to your publicity material creates an instant boost in attendance from those of us who will go just about anywhere to hear them play and dance the night away.” Scott and Adrianne Hillman, (fans and satisfied former/future clients) 

"This band is top-notch. We will hire them again. They worked with our script for the evening. Helped us create excitment for the event. We even sold tickets to folks who didn't know about the event but wanted to come to dance to Run 4 Cover. But what says it all is at midnight when the event was over, we still had people on the dance floor ready to dance some more. How many fundraisers can say that? It's all due to Run 4 Cover. Thanks Run 4 Cover."  Kathleen Remillard, Fundraiser Chairperson for the Creative Center, Visalia, CA  

 "Run 4 Cover performed superbly at our 50th Anniversary Celebration - as always. They contributed to a wonderful evening dinner/dance by providing a selection of well performed and very dancable songs. Everyone in attendance spoke well of the evening and Run4Cover's performance. In my own estimation, Run 4 Cover "knocked it out of the park" in terms of performance and professionalism."  Lindsay Mann, CEO, Kaweah Delta District Hospital  

 "The band was perfect and kept the event going with enthusiasm and terrific sound. Their ability to read the crowd and keep the dance floor filled was perfect. We cannot wait to work with them again!" Shelli Armstrong, event coordinator, UCSF Gala Celebration  

“Run 4 Cover brought an exciting and unimaginable element to our event; they worked with us to ensure our evening was flawless. If you are looking to step up your event and want your guests dancing through the night, this is your band!”  Diane Guinn , Executive Assistant, California Citrus Mutual  

“For about a decade now I have had the pleasure of working with the Central Valley treasure that is Run 4 Cover.  Their professionalism and high-caliber pop musicianship, has made them our area’s best long-running cover band.  Their ever-growing catalog spans decades of dance floor hits, in a variety of genres, making their live shows versatile for most any occasion.”  Aaron Gomes, Founder/Executive Director of Sound N Vision Foundation

"We booked Run4Cover for our daughter’s wedding. She wanted her reception to be a big dance party for all our guests, and Run4Cover performed beyond our wildest dreams! Three-plus hours of non-stop dancing on a packed dance floor. No one left until Run4Cover was done! Best.Wedding.Reception.Ever!!! Craig and Cindy Peltzer

 "We love having Run4Cover at our taproom. Huge following, very professional, beautiful sound, and always has the crowd dancing. Matt Nation BarrelHouse Brewing Company Taproom Manager, Visalia, CA

I have known Mike Wilson for over 30 years, and I’ve had the pleasure of working with Run4Cover on many occasions. Run 4 Cover is a wedding/party/fundraiser/dance/entertainment band like none other. They are constantly engaging with the audience and making every event a fun experience for all. They are professional musicians and are classy individuals who are very, very easy to work with. I can’t say enough good things about Run4Cover. If you’re planning an event, Run4Cover is a must have! Alex Gluckmann, Golden West High School ASB Advisor, Fundraising Chair

I had the pleasure of working with Mike and the rest of Run4Cover when they played at our annual SPCA fundraiser dinner in November. They were so easy to work with, made every effort to help make sure the night went smoothly and played an amazing show. Those who attended the event absolutely loved the music! I will definitely book them again in the near future! Suzanne Downing, Hanford SPCA
