Brilliant band

We have booked Rooster for our wedding in early summer 2023 and they were just brilliant. Our guests were from different backgrounds, age groups and nationalities but everyone enjoyed the music. Band members are very friendly and professional and we would highly recommend for your special day or any other occasion.

Absolutely Phenomenal

We chose Rooster as our wedding evening entertainment and they were phenomenal. From first contact to final song, we were so impressed by the professionalism and talent this band has provided. Rooster really read the room and tailored their set perfectly to the crowd and even played a few more to finish in response to ‘encore!’ If you’re looking for a reliable band to deliver unforgettable entertainment, look no further.
