“Thank you all so very much for organising and playing at out wedding. You were absolutely fantastic and thanks to you our guests had a wonderful time on the dance floor. Everything was pitched perfectly to suit and I particularly loved our first dance. Thank you Tailored for make the whole experiences so completely simple & stress free! We couldn't have hoped for better.”Lynda Hayward - Wedding, Boxley Abbey, Maidstone
“Hi Phoebe, we just wanted to say a massive thank you for all your help and a massive thank you to Pop Rocks, they were amazing and brilliant!! We're both really happy we chose them to play at our wedding! Guests comments about the band have been nothing but positive (even from the oldies!).
Would definitely recommend Pop Rocks for any event that requires live music. Thank you ever so much again.”Mr & Mrs Nick - Wedding, Morden Hall, London
“Pop Rocks were very good indeed at our event.
Professional, helpful and very talented musicians. They had the crowd up on the dancefloor from the first song.
Thanks for all your help with this.”Paul - Corporate, Bristol Marriet Hotel, Bristol
“5/5 - Pop Rocks were absolutely fantastic. They arrived on time, and quietly got on with setting up during cocktail hour without disturbing us at all. They played fantastic sets and had the dance floor packed the whole evening. It was disappointing that they had to finish playing at the end of the night. I received multiple messages and comments the next day about how fantastic they were from guests.
They were a joy to work with, extremely professional and a lot of fun. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a band for their wedding/event.”Matt - Wedding, Rest Harrow, Hampshire
“5/5 These guys were BRILLIANT!! The guests all loved them, they NAILED our first dance song, and had everyone dancing until they kicked us out! Thanks guys :)”Sarah Johansen - Wedding , Notley Abbey
“Please could you pass on my thanks to the band. They were absolutely superb and did a wonderful job. Unfortunately, I was being pulled from pillar to post and was only able to experience their music for a short space of time but it was enough to know that we were in good hands. The comments I've had from guests were excellent. They loved the music and ambiance and it really made their evening.
Once again, thank you for recommending them and we'll be back for another booking in the not too distant future I hope.”Peter Gwizdala - Army Event, Royal Artillery Barracks
“The guys were AMAZING. The dance floor was full throughout the evening because they were that good. The first dance was sensational, they did such a great job. Please pass our thanks onto the guys.”Suzie Clarke - Wedding, Hamton Court House
“The band were terrific - we really enjoyed them playing at the wedding and everyone else said they were brilliant as well. Pop Rocks definitely rocked!”Kunal - Wedding, Proud Country House
“5/5 - Thank you for playing at our wedding. All our guests have commented on how they loved the band and that they did a great job and we have to agree. The dance floor was packed all night and they did a fantastic performance of our first dance song. Thank you!”Chris and Kerianne - Wedding, Denbies Vineyard, Dorking
I really want to have a great party with everyone on the dance floor - are you the right band for that? Absolutely! We have been performing at weddings and events for several years and have an infectious live show that guarantees a packed dance floor and a party that you and your guests will remember for years to come! Our repertoire features the biggest classic and current chart hits, so there's certainly something for everyone.
Do you take requests? We are happy to perform one special request for you - for weddings this is usually the first dance. You can also let us know your top 10 preferences from the repertoire, as well as send up to 30 requests for the disco - so you can be sure to hear all your favourites on the evening.
How long do you take to set-up? 60-90 minutes. If you are organising a wedding or event where the evening reception is in the same room as your meal, we often arrive to set-up while the room is turned around - we can have background music playing within around 30 minutes of load in.
What time do you play? At a time to suit your event, standard prices are for 2 hours of live music, any time between 7pm and midnight.
How long do you play for? We perform 2 x 60-minute live sets (or 3 x 40 minutes) in the evening and also provide a pre-mixed disco (tailored to your tastes) before and after live sets, so your whole night of entertainment is covered in one booking.
Can you provide music for our drinks reception? Yes - we can perform a 1 x 60-minute live lounge-style acoustic set as an add-on, which is perfect for during drinks or dinner.
What is the difference between the ‘pre-mixed DJ service’ that comes with the standard package and the 'band member to DJ live' which is an optional extra? The pre-mixed DJ service is where the band put on a bespoke playlist (you can request up to 30 songs in advance for this) through the PA before and after their live sets. We do this at most events and it works great - the volume of the music would be the same as if you had a DJ.
If you upgrade to the live DJ service, you can still send over preferences in advance, but you will also have a band member selecting and mixing tracks live on the night, as well as taking requests. The DJ will be happy to make important announcements but they will not talk constantly over or between tracks (that's just not our style!). We also think it's important to say that the DJ won't have a separate DJ booth - they will set up in an appropriate space (ideally to the side of the stage) and the PA/lighting will be the same as what is being used by the band.
Do you have your own PA and lighting? Yes – all included in the price. You won't have to hire any additional equipment in.
What is the website guide price based on? The published guide price is based on our 4-piece line-up performing at a venue within 30 miles of our base in London. We charge travel costs for venues further than 30 miles, and if your venue is more than a 2 hours 30 mins drive home, we charge a bit extra so we can book accommodation. For an accurate quote please contact us with your event date and venue details.
Our venue has a noise limiter, can you work with that? Yes, we regularly work at venues with noise limiters. We are happy to contact the venue in advance of the event to make sure we have all the required information to enable us to plan accordingly.
Do you have Public Liability Insurance and PAT tested equipment? Yes.
Will you perform our first dance? Yes, as long as we have two weeks notice we will learn the first dance of your choice.
How much space do you require? We have played in some very small spaces, but ideally a minimum of around 2.5m x 5m.
How much power do you require? 2 x 13-amp sockets is fine for our system.
Do I need to provide food/drinks? Ideally soft drinks and a hot meal or buffet. However, this is certainly not a deal breaker so if you can’t provide this, just let us know in advance and we’ll bring food & drink with us.
Can we see you play live before booking? As a professional function band our bookings tend to be weddings and private events that unfortunately we are unable to invite guests to. Our videos are a very accurate insight into our look and sound, and we'd also encourage you to check out our testimonials page to see what previous clients have said about their experience with the band.
