Latest reviews of our Rock Bands in Essex

Jukerox
Full starFull starFull starFull starFull star

"Jukerox were booked at my wedding for the evening reception. Throughout the months leading up to our wedding, they explained the evening timetable and kept in touch with us through email. Kier, a band member, called us the week before the wedding to go over times, song requests, first dance song and provided dj set playlists for the breaks. They arrived promptly on the day and set up in plenty of time. The members were super friendly and put all their effort into the performance. The first dance blew us away. We chose ‘The Power of Love’ to be performed due to our love to Back to the Future’. Jukerox played a small intro from Back to the Future which came as a total surprise and started off the night of live music amazingly! We had family members who predicted we had spent 4K on this band as they were so impressed by how they sounded! They played all of our choices and got everyone on their feet all night. The lead singers voice was incredible and we could not have asked for a better night. My husband and I cannot recommend this band enough. It was a bit higher than our budget but it was worth every penny. We are so glad we chose Jukerox to perform. Thank you for being so brilliant! "

"Fantastic doesn't even cover it. Jukerox performed an acoustic set and then 2 hours of party hits for us at our NYE wedding party, and were utterly brilliant from start to finish. The vocals were amazing, and they picked songs that ensured the guests were up dancing and always entertained. They were brilliant to communicate with before the day, turned up on time, and handled the NYE countdown like pros! I really can't speak highly enough of this band, and can't wait to book them again for another event! Thank you :)"

"Jukerox made the party! A wonderful covets band that sound amazing & play such a excellent variety of floor fillers. They were brilliant fun, hard working & extremely polite & professional. Everyone commented on how they made the night & asked for their details. We immediately wanted to book them for another event but they’re already booked on that date & I’m not surprised. Book with confidence if you can get a date! You’ll love them! Xx"

FAQs about hiring Rock Bands in Essex

Take the stress out of hiring musicians with Encore

Can any rock band play my favourite song?

Professional rock bands will often take requests, but you will need to give them plenty of notice. Please also keep in mind that rock bands may ask for an small additional fee to prepare songs that aren't already on their song list. You can view the rock band's song list on their Encore profile.

How much time do rock bands take to set up?

Your rock band will usually arrive about an hour or so before their performance begins to set up and get settled before they start playing. To avoid any delays, make sure the performance space is ready for the rock band prior to their arrival.

My venue has asked for the performer’s PLI & PAT inspection certificates. What are these?

PLI stands for Public Liability Insurance. This insurance covers damage to another person or their property (it is also known as third party insurance). As many of our rock bands are members of the Musician's Union, they are already covered by PLI up to £10 million. PAT stands for portable appliance testing. Most of our rock bands will already have a PAT inspection certificate for their musical equipment/PA system, which they can provide to your venue if they need it.
