Customer questions

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

We all love playing in Rocket Jam and none of us ever want to miss a gig. Unfortunately sometimes this does have to happen and we have pre-auditioned 'dep' musicians in case a band member falls ill or is unavailable. We will always inform you if we need to dep the singer.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our normal line up is female led vocals, guitar with male vocals, drums with male vocals, keys and bass. We can hire in a fiddle player if you would like a bit more ceilidh and we also have the option to add 2 horn players to really give the night a boost!

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

We can be flexible about timings so it doesn't really matter as long as you let us know. If the event changes to go on past midnight we may need to adjust the price but for small changes it's not a problem.

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

Yes we can provide background music before we play and during the break, and even for a while after we play if there's time! We are more than happy to put on a playlist that you provide.

How much time do you need to set up?

1.5 hours is ideal and allows us plenty of time to set up and get the levels just right for the venue. If the venue has a sound limiter, please let us know in advance.

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

Yes we are more than happy for you to pick specific songs from our set list or make even make some vetoes!

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

We provide everything and you don't need to worry about it. As long as the venue has plenty of power points available we are happy to play anywhere and everything we bring is included in the quote.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes of course! We love getting requests because they can often be a great song to keep in the set we wouldn't think to add otherwise. We can learn up to 3 songs for your event.

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients love the variety in our set as there really is something for everyone!

Which venues have you performed at in the past?

We have years of live experience between us and have played in many different venues, from the former 1500-cap Picture House in Edinburgh to the back of a truck in a town square!

Which artists have you been most influenced by?

There's too many to count, but we all love a bit of funk and rock. The set is full of some of our favourite songs!

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

Each one of our gigs are as special as the last, but hanging out in a country estate for a private Hogmany party has been one of our best gigs...so far!

Fantastic music for my guests who talked so much about how they enjoyed Rocket Jam. Chris and band were so easy to deal with prior to the event and certainly delivered an outstanding performance on the night! Highly recommended.

Brillant band, great variety of music for all tastes. Saw them at Whistle Binkies, Edinburgh recently. Highly recommended

Maz E, 1 year ago

Saw these guys recently at whistlebinkies. Great night - they got so many people up dancing and having a good time. Talented band with plenty of crowd pleasers; they looked like they were having a great time themselves too!
