I'd like to add, you were are an incredibly talented band and were fantastically accommodating and brilliant at engaging the whole crowd, despite the range of ages and music taste!

Live Wedding Band Hire - Nutfield Priory Hotel & Spa, Nutfield, Surrey - 21st September 2012
'Dear Matt and Rockpins Gemma and I want to say a huge thank you for the fantastic job you did at our wedding on September 21st. We knew we really wanted a live band for our evening reception and when we went to see you live at a couple of local pubs earlier this year, we knew we’d found a band who could perform fantastic covers of our favourite tracks with a huge range of songs across the 50s-00s to keep all our guests on the dance floor having a good time. Although we knew we'd found a great band, the Rockpins exceeded our expectations delivering a first class show, so much so that we had dozens of compliments from our guests. The dance floor was suitably filled and the set-list was faultless. Hey Jude at the end made it feel like our very own Live 8! So we’d like to say a massive thank you, and you can expect to see us in the crowd at future pub gigs!! All the best, Richard and Gemma'

I look forward to actually being at the next one! With fondest regards, Maria.

Kind regards , Lee & Olivia'

'Matt (and the rest of the band!) I just wanted to say a massive thank you to you all for playing at our wedding yesterday. You were absolutely brilliant; just what we wanted. All our friends and family said they thought you were great and it was really nice that a whole range of people of different ages were able to join in dancing due to the range of songs you played. I don't think the dance floor was less than 3/4 full at any point during the night. It has been a pleasure to have you involved in our day, we would thoroughly recommend you to anybody who needs a band in the future.Thanks again. Simon and Fizz'
Party Band - Private Function - JoJo's, Whitstable, Kent - 27th July 2012
'Hi Matt ....you, Jon and Nick were amazeballs, everyone was and is still talking about you, Jo said you are the best band they have ever had at his place. From the minute you guys started playing the dance floor was filled and half way through all the girls shoes started coming off - always a sign of a fantastic band and night. With the age range between 25-80 it takes real skill to meet everyone's taste / expectation which you accomplished with flourish....Char and I are now trying to think of another reason to have a party so we can have you guys again.....you made my mums and our night, thanks sooo much.'

Best wishes, Natalie and John Monaghan'

Live Wedding Band - The Plough Inn, Hildenborough, Kent - 2nd June 2012
'After much searching for a suitable band to play at our wedding, we came across the Rockpins. They appeared to offer a perfect mix of good quality musicianship, a well judged set list and a reasonable price. When the day came, they didn't disappoint. They arrived and set up with a minimum of fuss, before breaking into the first of two brilliant sets. Despite being 'only' a 3 piece, the Rockpins managed to emulate perfectly the sound of various pop and rock bands from across 5 decades. The set list offered something for pretty much everyone - no mean feat - and kept the dance floor busier than I have seen at most weddings. Throughout the evening and subsequently we received compliments on our choice of band from many guests, all of whom were as impressed as we were. We really couldn't have been happier with the entertainment that The Rockpins provided, and were left wishing that we could find an excuse to book them again! Thanks for a great evening guys!'
Wedding Band Hire, Kent - 20th May 2012
'Dear Matt, Thanks so much for coming along to play our wedding reception. The music was fantastic and it really made our day special. The music you played was excellent and all our guests really enjoyed it. The playlist you chose went down really well.... The general manager of The Barnyard (Santosh) has said how much the managers and staff enjoyed the band too. Thanks once again. Was great meeting you and having you play at our reception. Kindest Regards, Eva & Aaron'
Wedding Reception Band, Kent - 6th May 2012
'Thank you so much for being so great on the day! We were absolutely thrilled at the atmosphere you created, you really made the evening for us! Every song was spot on and there were many moments where we looked around the room and everyone was up dancing; our parents, grandparents, friends -- everyone! Loads of our guests have commented on how good you were. Two of them have said they are going to get a band for their wedding off the back of your performance - they're getting married in Scotland though!The first dance song was perfect too. Thanks for taking the time to learn it for us. Thank you all so much again! Anne & Matt'

Wedding Party Band Hire - Devon - Chris & Ellie Metcalf, Sevenoaks - January 28th 2012
'We recently got married down in Devon and hired The RockPins who came down all the way from London to play. We had heard them play at several venues in South East London which is why we were desperate for them, and they were the only band we wanted. It is not often that the dance floor at a wedding is fully packed from the first song to the last, but ours was. Their setlist is truly amazing and they even let me sing my favourite song 'Live Forever' as the penultimate song before they ended with 'Hey Jude' which had every single one of the 150 guests singing along too. Really cannot thank them enough for making our day so amazing, and genuinely wouldn't have been the same without them. Can't recommend them highly enough.'

Just a quick note to say thanks for last night - you were awesome and got everyone dancing! We had the most amazing time and we couldn't have picked a better band to air guitar to! All the guests agreed you were brilliant, and you've even converted my Dad to be a Killers fan - seeing as the last record he bought was back in 1977 and has complained ever since that modern music is rubbish, I think this is a remarkable achievement!!
Thanks again, hope you had fun too.
