Customer questions

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

Yes. Our singer, Harry, front lines all of our gigs!

Do you have different line-up options?

Not really. We could do a smaller four piece line-up, but we much prefer the full sound of a seven-piece line-up. (Also, the brass would complain if we gig without them!)

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

We'll do our VERY best to be flexible.

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

No problem, we've got a Spotify playlist filled with cracking tunes to keep the party going!

How much time do you need to set up?

One hour. If the gig is local, we'll try and set up earlier in the day to do a sound check.

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

No problem, we've got a long setlist of classic tunes which you can pick from.

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

Yes.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

No problem, just let us know in advance and we'll do our best to learn your favourite song!

What do your clients love most about your performances?

No one can resist getting up for a dance at our gigs!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

The Tramshed, Cardiff Portland House Cardiff Museum Cardiff University

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

Got to be Nile Rodgers, Stevie Wonder and Mark Ronson. They know how to write a tune!

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

Tramshed, Cardiff. There were over 700 people having a good boogie and dancing the night away!

This lovely band played at the Cardiff Uni MLang Ball and it was so, so good! All 124 of us were on the dance floor having an absolute blast. The guys were very accommodating and super-friendly when it came to sorting out all the details. It made the ball so much more special to have some brilliant live music. Thank you!

Rock the Mike has performed countless events for Cardiff Uni MedSoc. The band is always the highlight of the night, and I have nothing but praise for all the band members. Thank you for making our events!
