Their experience playing together means you can expect a tight performance that will get and keep the numbers on the dancefloor from the get-go.

Rhythm And Blues
The band were absolutely excellent. Communications before hand were very good and they made sure everything was clear before the date. They were very professional on the day and it went completely smoothly. I'm very pleased with booking them. They sounded brilliant during their set. Could not recommend enough.
Fred Groves & Laura Billing
Wow! Hot Rox were absolutely incredible. They filled the dance floor all night, were absolutely charming to talk to and an absolute pleasure to work with. Many of the guests have asked for their details for future parties and we couldn't recommend them highly enough. The spontaneous Bon Jovi performance at the end was also greatly appreciated by my super fan family! They really made our day so special - thank you!
Sophie and Chris
The band were absolutely amazing. We couldn't have asked for anything else from them. They had our guests on the dance floor for the whole evening. If you are thinking of booking a wedding band, make sure to go for Hot Rox, you will not regret it! They were also completely flexible with timings, and even came to set up early so they were not setting up when our guests were there. I would recommend them to everyone I know!!
We give you a bespoke price based on the exact location of your event. The pricing below is based on a central location for your area so you have an idea of what your price will be. The exact price will be given in the booking process after you’ve provided the location details.
The band is fully insured for up to £2,000,000 through MusicGuard, and all of our equipment is PAT safety tested.
SPACE FOR THE BAND
Generally, a 2 x 2m space is ample for the band. However if your performance space is smaller than this we will most likely be able to position band members to accommodate everyone.
We are based in London, and are happy to travel to any gig within Greater London for free. We are always happy to travel further afield for a performance, and we do frequently travel outside of London for shows.
PUBLIC LIVE PERFORMANCES
The band tries to fit a showcase in every 3 months in Central London when their schedule allows.
Please feel free to let us know which songs from our repertoire are your favourites. That way we can get a feel for your taste of music and we can design the set list around your preferences.
Often a lot of songs that are favourite classics are actually dance floor killers, and it can be quite hard to get everyone back to the dance floor afterwards. Moreover we have designed set lists in particular ways with medleys integrated into them to keep your guests on the dance floor and to keep the party moving!
So our preferred option is for you to use the traffic light system and indicate which songs from our repertoire are green, amber and red. That way we can design the set list around your preferences and we can suggest some options that you might have overlooked.
BAND MEMBERS FALLING SICK
As a working band, we work with a roster of official 'deps' or understudies ready to step in at a moments notice should an unforeseen circumstance occur. They are professional well-rehearsed musicians representing the best talent out there, and for this reason we can guarantee the quality of our performance will not falter. Therefore you can be safe in the knowledge that if a band member falls ill we will be able to have another member step in seamlessly.
SET UP TIME
The minimum set up time required is 60 minutes. However it's best to schedule in 90 - 120 minutes to mitigate any unforeseen issues that might arise. The band will work quickly to set up and sound check as soon as possible. Sound checking is very important for us as it means we'll be able to avoid poor sound quality, feedback, and other technical sound issues which could arise throughout the performance. A good sound check means you'll get a great performance.
FOOD & DRINK
All the hard work the band puts in from traveling to your venue, setting up, and working well into the night makes the band quite hungry and thirsty! So they would very much appreciate being fed and watered during a break. They don't expect a 3 course meal, but it's true that a happy band always results in a happy performance.
Sound limiters can be quite a problem, because they read bass frequencies more than anything else, and as soon as the bass drum and bass guitar begins the power will cut. If you are hoping to get people dancing at your event then we advise against hiring a venue with a sound limiter as it will really lower the tone quite a bit, and the band will be distracted trying to keep within the sound limits as to avoid tripping the power which will kill all the lights not to mention potentially damage our equipment.
