Testimonials

"Hi Mickael,
Well, that’s us back from honeymoon now and back to “real life”!
Kate and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you and the band for your performance on the night of our wedding. I know we had some to-ing and fro-ing ahead of time with regard to you guys arriving and getting set up, etc. but after doing some re-working with the venue to fit in your later arrival it all worked brilliantly. You guys were very punctual and set up quickly, quietly and efficiently which was great so thanks for that. Also, more importantly, we had so many people come up and say that your performance was brilliant and we both agree. It was absolutely on the money and tailored perfectly to the audience. Very professional and very impressive.
Please feel free to stick any of this on your website as positive feedback. You would certainly be my first choice and / or recommendation for any future events.
Cheers,
Ian." Sept 2010

“As soon as Rockit started playing the dance floor was filled and remained that way right up till the end of the night. Thank you so much for recommending them for our reception. My friend who is getting married in 6 months booked them on the spot”
Debbie McCarthy, Swansea

“Fantastic band. They were the icing on the cake of a very successful day. Our exhibitors and guests wouldn’t let them stop playing. We’d like to book Rockit for the same event next year”.
Brett Williams, Events Co-ordinator, London

"What can I say??? A great day, A great Night. A TRULY AWESOME BAND. From the moment they arrived they set up without anyone noticing. From the moment they started their first set people were up & dancing. Me & the wife had decided not to have a first dance but as you can guess she changed her mind. (Probably too much swill) After a quick chat with the band everything was sorted for the start of their second set & we saw our marriage in, in top quality. From then on the dance floor was packed & I think it’s safe to say everyone had a really good night. At the end of the evening they even let us have a little bit of Karaoke. Thanks for organising everything & if anyone out there reads this then please book Rockit. You will not be disappointed."
Once again thanks a lot
Tony & Jayne, Putney

"Rockit were great.
They did a great performance and had learnt some Scissor Sisters by our wedding which I was delighted to hear .
Their performance was excellent and their conduct professional and polite. One of my guests has already expressed an interest in hiring them for a 40th Birthday do next year. Best wishes"
Jo Cory, Brighton

"Thanks for your kind words.
All our guests have said how good they were and were especially pleased with the fact they were so adaptable - playing requests without any problems.
I was especially happy that when we got into the room, the dance floor was overflowing - a very good sign.
Thanks again for everything and please pass on my positive words to the band as I didnt get to speak to them at the end."
Garth Taylor, Leeds
