The Rockets were awesome, they were exactly what we had hoped they would be and more. Very professional, they arrived and set up on time and didn't require any input from us, which was ideal as we were busy having some last minute wedding photos taken.

The band are amazing. Really friendly and amenable. They set up and cleared away without any fuss. We had agreed one start time, but owing to guests arriving late, we asked if we could start later and they agreed instantly telling us it was no problem, and it genuinely felt like it wasn't!! All in all, we and the guests had a great time. I have had so many texts this morning saying how amazing the band were. Thank you for helping to make our party a success!!

We booked The Rockets for our wedding because they have 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 please that I booked them.

The Rockets are an excellent band and made my friend's party the perfect night. It was a small crowd, however that didn't stop the Rockets putting on an outstanding performance and getting everyone on the dance floor.

A great night of music provided by 'The Rockets' 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.

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 have 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!!
