About Mock Rockin' Beats

Mock Rockin' Beats's profile picture
Cover band
London
Public liability insurance of £10 million
Quality covers from over 6 decades.

Mock Rockin' Beats formed in 2017 after the string players and guitarist from local alt-folk band, Nou Enle, decided that they wanted to form a functions band. Gerard (lead vocals and Guitar) was heavily involved in the Romo scene of the 1990s, being part of the band Dex Dexter, who were discovered by Pulp's Jarvis Cocker. He has been in many different covers and originals bands over the years. Samantha (Bass) and Chris (Lead Guitar) share a background in classical music, both being professional string players in their own right. Raul is a seasoned professional percussionist, and always embraces a challenge. In his native city of Bogotá, he has performed in different classical music orchestras and ensembles, and played the drum kit and percussion in several Blues, Rock, Jazz , folk and traditional music bands. We play music in any style that works for our line-up, with examples ranging from David Bowie and Stealers Wheel, to Catfish & the Bottlemen and Blossoms. We are happy to take requests, as this helps us to grow our setlist, and keeps things fresh. Our current setlist spans over 3 hours, and is always growing.

Customer questions

We include a PA system that is large enough for small to mid sized venues (it is pretty loud), but can arrange for larger equipment for and extra fee.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

We welcome requests, but would suggest a 5 song limit (unless we already play the songs).
