reception must-have!

Our venue recommended the Rockpins and we wouldn't have been happier with them. They really made the reception ... got everyone dancing. for us they did 3 sets and then have a mix music set inbetween which gave everyone the opportunity to mingle and chill before hitting the dance floor. Not your average wedding band ... a bit rocky / indie but they know the crowd pleasers to get everyone dancing.

Best live wedding music we've heard!

We were after a great live band for our wedding, and boy did these guys deliver! We received many comments afterwards on how fantastic the music was with some saying it was the best music they'd heard at a wedding (and we'd agree!). Their sound is very polished from the guitar playing (incredible solos), to the vocals, drumming and harmonies. They have a comprehensive and large setlist (available on their website) playing everything through from rock classics, indie gems and modern pop, from 60s to present day. Matt is very responsive to the audience's mood and requests, so the dance floor was packed all night. Really easy communication with Matt beforehand, we made a few particular requests which were incorporated but left the bulk of the song selection to them as we were confident in their setlist, and also made requests for the DJ setlist. They can be booked as either a 3 piece or 4 piece, we went for the latter. Matt was really helpful on the general sound set up throughout the day, and was flexible to timing changes. Lighting was also impressive. Thanks to the Rockpins for making our day so memorable!

The RockPins played at our wedding back in April and we still have people saying how amazing the band was! They really made the night fun, we loved the song choices and we danced the whole time. It was the best night ever! Thanks guys!

Don't hesitate - just book The RockPins!!!

Booked The RockPins just from watching their videos - they were the 'sound' we were looking for and their playlist covered all tastes. They SURPASSED expectations! From the opening dance right through to the end, they kept our wedding party bopping the night away - from my 86 year old Mum to 2 yr old Max! Their sound was brilliant, they got the crowd singing along, and everyone was raving about them afterwards. Plus, dealing with them was always so easy. I've booked a lot of bands for charity events but in my opinion, The RockPins are on a higher level. Can't recommend enough!

Brilliant band!

The RockPins were amazing! They learnt our first dance song and it was perfect, so a special thanks for that, but everyone commented on how brilliant the music was throughout the evening and it was a fantastic end to our day. Everyone was up and dancing, the space wasn鈥檛 huge but it wasn鈥檛 overwhelming, just a great mix of music and lovely interaction with our guests! Thank you.

A really superb talented band

We booked the RockPins for our wedding at the High Rocks in May. From first introductions right through to the day Matt was very prompt in his dealings with us and put us at rest. On the day, apart from everything else going so well they arrived punctually and un-intrusively. Their music is just simply brilliant covering hits from every decade since the 50s and had a dance floor full of people most of the night. They played our first dance song, Mr Brightside and it was one of the best covers we have heard. Could not recommend them enough. If I need a band play for us again I would not hesitate in hiring the guys again. Made the day even better. Thanks guys.

We cannot rate the band highly enough, friendly, professional, incredibly talented musicians and vocals.

The RockPins performed at our wedding in 2019, in a marquee on our village green Matt and the guys absolutely made our wedding. There was excellent communication from the first enquiry through to the wedding day. We provided a request playlist from all our guests and they could not do enough to make sure everything was perfect. All our guests were up and dancing! We would not hesitate to recommend the RockPins and will be looking to rebook the band for future events.

The RockPins rocked our wedding!

Matt & the band played our wedding at the end of August (4-piece band & DJ set). They are multi award winning for a good reason; Matt & the boys were absolutely fantastic. From getting the set list spot on (no easy task ensuring multiple generations hit the dance floor!) to their pitch perfect interaction with the crowd (these boys know how to work a room), they were one of the main reasons why everyone was commenting on how much of a great time they had. It was a truly fantastic party. Matt is a true professional; he called in at the venue the day before the wedding to ensure the set up on the day would run smoothly (which it did without a hiccup) and to ensure they got the volume/atmosphere just right (an important consideration as the venue was a marquee in a garden in a small rural village). On the night itself, the band arrived right on time, set the entire stage up without any interference to the wedding happening all around them, played a blinding set that got everyone, young & old, up on the dance floor for the whole night. I cannot recommend the RockPins highly enough. Get them booked, you won't regret it!

Everyone was on the dance floor! It was amazing. They were friendly, professional and just fantastic! Would definitely ask them to play again for another event!

Fantastic Band!

The RockPins are fantastic!! We hired them for our wedding and the dance floor was never empty. They played a whole range of classics, including playing our first dance song which was a great touch. Just a brilliant night and certainly wedding to remember - for everyone!

Recommending to everyone!

Thank you so much for Saturday, we really loved it and you guys play the best music! Blink 182 and Greenday etc literally reminded us and our mates of our teenage years and being young and childfree again haha! And ending on Hey Jude was perfect! (big Beatles fans, had Beatles songs in the ceremony too!)
We had the best time! Hope we get the chance to hear you guys again soon, we will definitely be recommending you guys to everyone! Thank you again!
