If you need a band to blow the minds of your guests, get The RockPins.

The RockPins played at our wedding in August and they were beyond awesome. They played a beautiful rendition of L-O-V-E by Nat King Cole for us which we asked them to learn. Then they proceeded to rock the house and kept the dance floor full all night long. They knew exactly what to play and when, and played along perfectly with the crowd.

Thank you RockPins for bringing one hell of a party to our wedding. Everyone keeps telling us how amazed they were by you. Thank you for going right until the very end and then some!
