This allows us to perform within the limits required by the venue at all times. This setup gives a great live sound at all volumes and is actually a good option for large venues as well. All of the live videos on this page were recorded while using this silent stage setup. Where is the band based? The band is based in the East Midlands and performs throughout the UK!

Wow.... What an amazing band!! Booked for our wedding on the 28th Dec 23. Davids communication was excellent working with us for the perfect playlist. And even learned a new song for us. They had everyone dancing from start to finish, safe to say our feet were sore by the end of the night! The band even came with their own photographer and sent over the photos and videos of the evening. Would highly recommend, we and our guests had a great night. Can't thank you enough, Twist of Rock. Loved you guys Jo & Chris White 🤙

Twist of Rock were amazing. Not only was the music performed to an incredibly high standard, they were the consummate professionals throughout the evening. They were very subtle in their set up and pack down and while being easily heard throughout the venue they did not overpower the room with their volume. I would highly recommend booking this band for any event, and I would not hesitate to book them again in future.

Twist of Rock played for us at a combined 'father and son' birthday party in tipis in our garden. Communication with David pre the event was excellent and they were happy to iterate a bit on their suggested set lists to suit the occasion. The sound quality (music and vocals) and lighting were excellent on the night and they really got the multi-generational audience dancing! Everyone was impressed by the band with several friends asking 'where did you find these guys?' We will certainly book ToR for any future parties. Thank you! Phil & James

Would highly recommend, amazing band! We hired them for our wedding and we are so glad we did!!! They did a really fantastic job learning our first dance song (which was a bit of an obscure choice!) And the vocals were just amazing. Only wish we could go and see them perform again!

Customer questions

What do your clients love most about your performances?

Our clients love our varied set list and crowd interaction. We get the party started and keep it going all night! Past clients have commented positively on the very high quality of our vocals & live sound, that we perform everything without using any backing tracks and that we have good proactive communication before and during the event.

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

Our principal lead singers are Carla (fair hair) and Julie (dark hair) who can both be seen performing in the many live videos on our profile. We alternate between these two lead singers depending on availability at the time of booking.

Do you have different line-up options?

Our standard line-up is a 4-piece with female lead vocalist, bassist with backing vocals, drummer with backing vocals & guitarist. We also perform with an additional one or two male or female lead vocalists to suit the event & budget.

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

We always try our best to be flexible to help ensure your event runs as smoothly as possible. If timings change slightly in the run-up to the event, just let us know.

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

Absolutely. A complimentary pre-mixed DJ-style playlist service through our p.a. is included with all our bookings, to keep the party going when we are not playing. Latest finish midnight.

How much time do you need to set up?

We usually set up about 1.5 hours before the performance time. As soon as our PA is set up we can provide a free playlist service to help set the atmosphere and get your guests ready for our live performance!

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

Yes certainly. We will discuss the mix of music you think will be best for your event and provide you with a draft set list of recommended songs that we believe would work well from our experience. You can then use this draft set list as a starting point and substitute in any songs from our full song list that you would prefer us to play.

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

Yes. Our PA and stage lighting system are included in your quote. Our p.a. is suitable for an audience of up to 600 indoors or 400 outdoors. If you require a bigger PA we're able to provide one for an additional fee.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, we are happy to learn your first dance song or a specific song of your choice at no extra charge.
