Why book Twist of Rock : Party Anthems? First class vocals and musicianship, a great set list covering all ages and a well engineered live sound. Guaranteed to wow guests and fill the dance floor. They have a fresh and exciting song list of well known pop, rock, indie & soul party anthems that can be tailored to suit any event or age range, including 80s/90s and 00s/10s themed events. See them performing 100% live & unedited in the video section. All the videos were recorded live during an event, not in a studio, so you can see clearly what you will be getting before you book. The band performs many of these songs with their own high energy arrangements and has great stage presence and audience interaction, making them ideal for a seated audience as well. To enhance the live band experience they do not use any backing tracks or pre-recorded material in any of their shows. With Twist of Rock, live means 100% live. What is included? The band's standard pricing includes everything you need for a great event, including 2 hours of live music, a free DJ playlist service when not performing, a powerful p.a. for up to 400 people indoors or 300 people outdoors, dynamic computer controlled stage and dance floor lighting, and haze/smoke machines for a great party atmosphere. The band has good communication and a professional proactive approach to planning and co-ordinating events. Their standard service includes on-line and face to face meetings (if local to Northamptonshire) to go through all the details of the event with the organiser. What if the venue has a noise limit? Many venues have a noise limit for the benefit of the local community and other residents and this will usually prevent the use of an acoustic drum kit. But don't worry, the band have this covered. Their standard pricing includes for the use of a top of the range electronic drum kit and a 'silent stage' system so they are able to play at any volume required by the venue. This set up gives a great live sound at all volumes and is actually a good option for large venues as well. Most of the live videos on this page were recorded using this silent stage set up. The band is based in the East Midlands and performs throughout the UK.

What an amazing band this is! They are all so talented, the musicians and the lead singer. They played at our wedding on Sunday night and literally had everyone up dancing straight away. All our guests were raving about them the next day. What’s more is they are all lovely people too. So easy to deal with and nothing is too much trouble for them. They turned up in plenty of time and set up ready to go, they even brought us a wedding card and took pics in the night. I Would highly recommend to anyone, especially if you are thinking of booking them for your evening reception, go on and do it. It will be the best decision you ever make.
