We have just got back from honeymoon (and back to reality!!) and could not leave it any longer without saying a massive massive thank you to you and the rest of the Rockets. We felt so bad as we didn’t even see you go on the big day, but I am sure that you could tell that everyone thought you were fantastic. There were people up dancing that I had never even seen dance before in my whole life! You really were amazing and made our night, so thank you lots. You also made a lot of the girls happy, as I heard several times how pleased they were to have such great eye candy as well as great music!!

Can’t thank you enough for putting us in touch with the Rockets…..they were better than we could ever have wished for..so many people came to us throughout the night asking who they were and that they were one of the best bands they had ever heard. (Not to mention the fact that they had a few female secret admirers!!) Nick and the band went beyond the call of duty. They were more than accommodating from the off-set….their set list was excellent. They adapted it to suit the audience and mood. They got the whole venue ROCKING and shouting for them to ENCORE….we will always recommend Rockets to anyone. Our venue has made a note of them for whenever they need to book a band for a party in the future….they made our party for us and for that we will be so very grateful.

The Rockets were fantastic!
My son’s 18th Birthday party was a great success, thanks to these guys. They played whatever the crowd suggested and had them up on the floor dancing from the start. They were totally professional and such a nice bunch of guys. The kids used words like ‘awesome’ and ‘the best band I’ve ever heard’ and ‘I want them for my party’.
Thank you to the Rockets for an unforgettable night.
I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Kathy Baxter,Birthday Party, London
We booked The Rockets for our wedding because they have a playlist that covers all age groups. We were not disappointed. Everyone had a lovely time on the dance floor, even my parents, who I actually had never seen dance before in my life! Nick and his band are also very friendly and professional, so I’m very pleased that I booked them.

The Rockets were amazing, 3 Piece Wedding Band; so glad we booked them. Friendly, and professional, but best of all, they sound outstanding. They made the party, and our guests and I danced all the way through; everybody had a great time. We especially appreciated that they played our first dance so well. Thanks, guys.

Fantastic band who made my night. The quality of the performance was outstanding. I go to watch lots of love music and I would happily pay to watch them play again. The band accommodated my preferences whilst maintaining control to work for the party accordingly, fantastic y… would definitely recommend.
Louise Ingram, Birthday Party EventSouth East Essex Golf Course, Essex
The Rockets were fantastic. Very professional and positive. Amazing repertoire catering for a great range of tastes. Everyone commented on how much they’d enjoyed the band and their brilliant playing. Made my birthday so special. Everyone was on the dance floor throughout the evening. Highly recommend The Rockets to make any occasion amazing. Really talented, professional band!
Richard & Jane SmithBirthday Party Event, Upham Village Hall, Hampshire
Great band, nice guys and the dance floor was full! The highlight was when they allowed one of the guests to play drums, she was only 13 and rocked it, so lovely that they trusted her and it meant so much to her. Thank you!!
Amanda EvansPrivate Party Event, Surrey
A great night of music provided by ‘The Rockets’ a 3 Piece Wedding Band and they managed to get the crowd dancing. Contact was made by them shortly after the booking was confirmed, which was easy to make. They were punctual and put on a great few hours of music both live and via a DJ in between sets. 3 Piece Wedding Bands
