The RockPins – Live Wedding Music
Live Wedding Music and Party Band – The RockPins formed over a decade ago. We have gained vast experience providing live music entertainment at wedding receptions, corporate events and private functions throughout London, the home counties and across the UK.
Multi-award nominated and Winners of the ‘Wedding Entertainment Live Act of the Year 2016 / 2017’ at the prestigious Kent Wedding Awards and ‘Highly Commended’ at The Wedding Industry Awards 2017 and Winners of the Platinum Bridebook Wedding Awards 2018 Badge of Excellence!
We’ve played some great and varied venues ranging from the top floor of London’s famous Gherkin, Vinopolis, Coq D’argent, Ragley Hall in Warwickshire, Leeds Castle in Kent, ships on the Thames, Alexandra Palace, Fulham Palace, numerous mansions and castles, to small intimate venues including clients’ living rooms and back gardens!
Line up: Nick on drums and BV’s, Matt (band manager) on lead vocals and bass and JM or Jack on lead / rhythm guitar and BV’s. We generally perform as a 3 piece band, but are also available as a 4 piece with both guitarists. Because all members of the band sing and play instruments, we produce the maximum capability of a 3 piece band, which many bands can only produce in a 4-5 piece band. Please see our videos or have a listen to our audio.
We play a wide range of party music from 50’s rock and roll, to present day rock / pop and indie hits, as well as some cheese; perfect for your wedding reception, corporate event or private party. With years of entertainment experience, we know what music gets people on the dance floor.
Technical: We use a high end powerful PA system (Allen & Heath mixing desk, 2 x FBT Himaxx 60A tops and 2 x FBT 100SA subs) and a range of excellent dance floor / stage lighting to produce the perfect party atmosphere.
We also offer optional free DJ / recorded music through all the breaks which can use either your own playlists through your Ipod etc, or we can provide playlists through our computer.
All members of the band have performed in many groups / acts, ranging from rock bands, choirs, musical theatre, duos and jazz bands, to funk and soul bands. We get a kick out of playing together and genuinely enjoy all of our gigs.
What We Do:
The RockPins provide over 2 hours of live music in either a 3 or 4 piece band (drums, bass, guitar/s and vocals) along with fantastic club level lighting (moving heads, wash lights, lasers, hazer).
We also provide a comprehensive disco package to accompany the live music in all the breaks. So we’ve got your whole night covered!
Turn up at 6pm – set up and sound check by 7.30pm. Then from 7.30pm to 11.30pm / midnight provide 2 hours of live music (2 x 1 hour or 3 x 40 minute sets) with disco before, during and after the live music. All disco lights will remain on throughout the evening.
We use industry leading sound / lighting equipment which all adds up to create the perfect party atmosphere for you and your guests. We possess Public Liability Insurance (£5million) and all our electrical equipment is PAT tested.
