What People Say:

"The Rockets 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 and were more than accommodating from the off … 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 The Rockets to anyone, and our venue have 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 are so very grateful."
Naomi Wallens - wedding reception - Surrey - February 2013

"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!!"
Karen Leverell - wedding reception - Oxfordshire - April 2013

"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."
