About On The Rocks

Jazz trio
London
Public liability insurance of £2 million
A multi award winning trio consisting of young vibrant musicians capable of providing a tailor made atmosphere for your event.

On The Rocks are a group of highly professional musicians based in the West Midlands and London. Having trained at the world renowned Royal Academy of Music, they have been performing as a trio for 5 years across the UK entertaining wedding receptions, garden parties and corporate events.

Their repertoire consists of jazz standards from the Great American Songbook, ranging from subdued ballads to up tempo swinging toe-tappers at the client’s request.

Hi Jacky, just a note to say a BIG thank-you for your contribution to our party on Saturday. Thankfully the weather was kind and the music was just right for the garden party. So many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed the music... Please pass our appreciation to the trio.
