Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our high-energy performances will have you dancing and singing all night. We have a high quality pa and lighting rig for the ultimate party atmosphere and with a band of the best musicians, all who sing backing vocals, the sound is so full and rich, it feels like a real gig and just not another covers band.

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

A small list includes The Clock Barn - Whitchurch Loseley Park - Guildford Stadium MK Hilton - Milton Keynes De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms - London Rivervale Barn - Yateley Southampton Football Club Battle Abbey - Battle Sprivers Mansion - Tonbridge Great Tythe Barn - Tetbury Royal Berkshire - Ascot New House Country Hotel - Cardiff Stoke Park - Slough

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

We love bringing a rock party to your event. Rocking out to everything The Killers, Kings Of Leon, Wheatus, Oasis, Kaiser Chiefs, and Fall Out Boy. We are no stranger to a guilty pleasure either Busted, Backstreet Boys and Weezer. And of course who could forget the classics like Bon Jovi, Journey, The Beatles and Bryan Adams.

What is the most high profile gig you've performed?

We are all in-demand musicians in our own right having performed nationally with pop and rock originals acts tribute bands, and musical theatre (including the tour of Cher and School Of Rock). We have all also had national and international radio play. A highlight of our events band career has been the Amazon Christmas parties at the MK Dons stadium.

Will the singer be the same as who I see in the videos?

We strive to make sure the line-up you see is what you get on the night. We do have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians available in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. As a professional band our reputation means everything so you can be confident that all of our players are of a very high level.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our line-up is as follows: Singing Guitarist, Lead Guitar, Bass Guitar and Drums. Everyone sings backing vocals too. We can also go out as 3 piece which can be a money saving option but we prefer the 4 piece as the 2nd guitar makes us sound much fuller and means we don't have to use backing tracks in songs where one guitar isn't quite enough.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

That is no problem at all. We are happy to converse with you throughout the process leading up to the big day to ensure everything goes smoothly. This is why we have early arrival and late finish add-ons. We also understand that things can change on the day and we are happy to go with the flow if needed on the day too.

Can you provide an iPod/DJ service before and between your sets?

Yes, from the moment we have finished setting-up our instruments and PA system we can start playing music ensuring there is something ti dance to throughout the entire evening. This is provided for free and we are happy to take requests beforehand and throughout the night as well.

How much time do you need to set up?

We need an hour and half from arrival to being fully sound-checked and ready to play. This is assuming that we are able to park our cars close-by for a swift load-in. Most of our set-up time can be done around other activities of the day such as wedding breakfast or drinks receptions. Our sound-check takes approx. 15 minutes.

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

We are very happy to take requests for our disco sets as well as discussing your musical likes and dislikes to ensure we craft a set list that is perfect for you. We love to read the crowd during our performance to ensure the dance floor is always full.

Is all of the equipment (e.g. PA & lighting) included in your quote?

Yes, we are fully self-contained with our own PA system and lighting rig that is fully PAT tested. All we require is a stage area of at least 4x4m and access to power via 2 domestic sockets.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

A first dance is included free of charge. Otherwise, our song list is just a sample of what we provide so it is very possible that we already know it. Please don't hesitate to ask.

You have to hire Rock The Night they are absolutely amazing! We hired them for our wedding and it was the best decision we made. Jake communicated with us the whole way through the process, he was ever so friendly, accommodating, easy going and very knowledgeable. The band were all lovely and fitted in with our guests effortlessly. The music and singing was fantastic, they all had real stage presence and the energy was electric! Guests have not stopped raving about them ever since! They even learnt our first dance song and performed it so beautifully, we were so moved to hear our song played live just for us and done so so well. Rock The Night are fun, extremely talented and professional and they made our evening more wonderful than we imagined. Can't thank them enough for the energy and skill they brought. I cannot recommend them highly enough! Exceptional! Thank you from us and all our guests for an outstanding performance. Kate and David

Rock the night we're absolutely fantastic. They honestly made our wedding day. Communication was excellent throughout and they really took time to listen to us and give suggestions for the day, all of which were spot on. They were really flexible and even did us an acoustic set outside to kick the music off as the weather was nice and we had a festival themed wedding. I was soooo impressed on the day, every song was played brilliantly and our guests were raving about the music. They played such a great range of songs and made the sets really fun for everyone. The dance floor was full all night. On top of all of that they were all just so lovely and such a joy to have as part of the day. We could not fault them and would recommend them to anyone. I cannot thank you guys enough for how amazing you were!

We hired Rock the Night for our Wedding Party and from the first phone call with Jake we knew we were in safe hands. The guys were very professional through out while still carrying the vibe we were expecting based on their profile. Communication all the way through was excellent, working around our schedule, and going into detail on our music tastes and what we would like from the night. On the evening the band were prompt, setting up efficiently and letting myself and my wife be stress free!. Performance was brilliant, high energy and thoroughly enjoyed by all our guests, especially Feeder - Buck Rogers being a real stand out. Thanks again for making our night so great.

From the first contact, Jake filled us with confidence that it was going to be a great event. His communications prior to the night were professional and allowed us to personalise the type of evening we wanted to create. The Band arrived promptly and set up with a playlist in the background suiting our preferred genre. They were helpful in changing the timings on the night to accommodate the mood of the party. The music itself was fantastic; they're a talented bunch of musicians! And they have the ability to modify the playlist, depending on their audience. Lots of our guests commented on how good the band were. All in all, value for money. And we have total confidence in recommending them. A huge 'thank you' to Jake and all the band members for helping to make our wedding party a night to remember, Pete & Tricia
