A big thank you to Rock Around The Clock! for providing some fantastic musical entertainment for our 1950's themed event at the University. The vocals by Nikki were outstanding, and the band's vintage theme was perfect for our retro inspired event. Their flexibility to adapt to the format of our event was really appreciated and I would definitely recommend this band to anyone who wanted a tasteful but fun 1950's themed band.

Verity Hunt, Events Officer, Exeter University Diamond Jubilee, 29thSept 2015

"Rock Around The Clock! kept our wedding guests dancing from start to finish. The dance floor was packed all night long with all ages, friends and family. The energy the band create is just as we had hoped. Love the way you danced with the crowd and got everyone going. The entire band brought a really positive attitude. We would 100% recommend you as the perfect wedding band. Thank you for really making our night.

"We hired Rock Around The Clock! for our anniversary party and they were amazing. Not only do they sound and look fabulous, they are a genuinely nice and friendly bunch of people who really care about their audience and performance. They played some great songs, the dance floor was full all evening and I would definitely recommend them to others looking for great party entertainment. We will certainly book them again in the future.

Mr & Mrs Sanderson, Old Basing, 29th Aug 2015

Oh wow, you look fantastic. You guys are really good!

Gloria Hunniford, Opening Ceremony, Hemel Hempstead, 5th August 2015

Thank you for playing at our Dinner Dance last week. You band were absolutely perfect for our function. The feed back I have had from our members have been extremely complimentary about Rock Around The Clock!. The dance floor was packed with people really enjoying themselves. As a former musician myself I was very impressed by the quality of the music and the professionalism of the band. It was good to see your sound engineer moving around the dance area with his iPad - too many bands set up and then hope the sound is OK for the rest of the night. I could see your man was making minor adjustments as the night went on.You played a variety of songs and styles, all to a very high standard. Even some of our non-dancers told me that they really enjoyed the music which was exactly at the right volume. Once again, many thanks and good luck in the future. I hope I am in the position where we can book you again! Kind Regards John Halliday, Captain, Basingstoke Golf Club

Excellent band who present a first class image. Arrived in plenty of time and set up before our function started. Everyone I spoke to enjoyed it a lot so 10/10 from me!

John Hiscock (Booker), Captains Dinner, Basingstoke, 4th July 2015

"My new husband and I spotted Rock Around The Clock! playing last summer. We may have consumed a little bit of Lemoncello but we rushed to Nikki after their set and booked them on the spot! We woke the next morning with a slightly sore head and asked each other "did we book a band for the wedding". Yes indeed and thank goodness the Lemoncello gave us that spontaneity! From the beginning, Nikki and the band were accommodating to what we wanted at the wedding. Nikki is really lovely to do business with and makes you feel like you've known her for ever! And the band, wow the band! I have had so many of our wedding guests tell us just how unique and incredible they were. Rock Around The Clock! were PHENOMENAL as our wedding band. The dance floor was never empty and at one point we had Nikki up and dancing with the ring bearer (age 3) who was besotted with her! Their music is fun and uplifting and they are very talented group of musicians. I am so grateful that we had Rock Around The Clock! at our wedding and can't wait to see you perform again!"
