About Rock Empire – professional pop & rock covers band based in Bordeaux, France
Rock Empire are a French cover band that plays mainly in the south of France but can also travel out of this area.
We have more than a hundred songs in our repertoire, chosen primarily from the artists we love, from Little Richard to Bruno Mars and from the big names in rock, pop, soul and rhythm & blues.
Please take a look at our 2024 SET LIST
We're regularly booked to perform for weddings and events at Château Destinée in Saint-Seurin-de-Prats, Château de la Valouze in La Roche-Chalais and Chateau Brametourte in Lautrec, France.
We perform at weddings (cocktails and parties), village parties, birthdays and all kinds of events. We hope to communicate our high energy and charisma, and our pleasure to make music.

We now play mostly as a five-piece band, performing more jazzy and soul songs for the ceremonies, and more pop & rock dance music for the evenings.
We always aim to propose an energic show, with good humour and to make the guests dance.
We can DJ between and after our live sets if required.
We always come to the venue with our own equipment (PA system, lights, etc).
We always agree to learn songs for the first dance, for example.
Here are just some of the locations where we have been booked by clients on FixTheMusic for weddings and events...
So if you're looking to hire the finest rock and pop covers band Bordeaux (France) has to offer for your wedding or event, get in touch with Rock Empire.
Rock Empire work closely with one of our best photographers, Anne Photographer, and the two combined create the perfect package for any event.

"Wow Rock Empire were incredible! We hired them for our wedding evening and our guests absolutely loved them. They were very accommodating, even letting some of the (drunken) guests get up and sing along or basically take over their set! Our guests are still talking about the band days later. Thank you so much for making our wedding so special to us and our guests and for being such lovely people!
Leanne & Marc"
"I am so sorry that I did not get the opportunity to speak with you in person on our wedding day the day just went by so quickly and I had intended to get speaking with you. I just wanted to say that your performance at our wedding was absolutely fantastic we absolutely loved the song variety and the way you performed our first dance song. Countless guests from our wedding have remarked on how brilliant your performance was. We are so so happy that we asked you to perform at our wedding and would absolutely recommend you for any event. I hope you also enjoyed your day and the food and refreshments provided at the venue."
"WOW, what a night!!! A massive thank you for such a wonderful afternoon and evening of fantastic entertainment. You guys were amazing!! Everyone, had so much fun and I am sure you noticed that the dance floor was constantly rockin' which was quite an achievement. We were only 30 people of all ages so choose a music set that appeals to all was inspired. No-one wanted the music to stop or the night to end which is a sign of a good night. Thank you for letting us have our moment of fame on stage - it was such fun. Thank you for your patience with us and for playing Mr Brightside twice hahaha.... We had the most perfect wedding and it was a night that Simon and I and all of or friends and family will never forget. One of our guests has not danced for 40 years and danced throughout - that is a massive achievement. She now wants to go to a 'disco' - how wonderful is that!"
"We booked Rock Empire for our wedding and we couldn't be happier with them! They really got our wedding off to a bang and were very relaxed and easygoing! We had so many compliments afterwards!! The overall vibe fitted perfectly with our beach wedding! Loved it 10/10."
"PERFECT!!!!!! We chose Rock Empire to participate in our wedding cocktail reception on the Île de Ré. What a fantastic band. Their kindness, dynamism and repertoire are incredible. Our guests loved the band and so did we. Our guests even had the opportunity to sing along with the group. If you are looking for an excellent, very professional, extremely friendly group that will make sure your event is an exceptional one, do not hesitate for a second. Rock Empire fully contributed to the success of this perfect day. A huge thank you to you!!! We would do this choice with our eyes closed and I recommend Rock Empire without any hesitation."
"Rock Empire played at our wedding and were fantastic! Thank you so much to Jerome and all the band! The set list had a great mix of our more modern tastes as well as pop covers that had the guests dancing all night. The band learned two special requests for us and played them perfectly. The band's performance was tight, well rehearsed and I would highly recommend them for any event - they really brought the evening to life. Through the pandemic we had to rearrange our wedding date twice. Jerome was always communicative and flexible which was great given the uncertainty. They are a very friendly group who even let us perform with them which was so cool. All of the guests, venue staff and photographers were asking us how we managed to find Rock Empire and thought they were one of the best function bands they'd seen - given the amount of weddings they have all been to, this is high praise! Thanks again and rock on!"
"Des reprises qui changent de l'ordinaire. On ne reconnais pas toujours la chanson dès la première note, ils y mettent leur grain de sel quoi! Le résultat est vraiment juste et parfait, on en oublie l'original parfois c'est bluffant... on se laisse porter par leur style qui est carrément Rock and Pop. Et quand on en redemande ils répondent présents. Vivement le prochain concert."
"Rock Empire came to my wedding and I have only one thing to say: Huge! The atmosphere was at the top and my friends set fire to the dance floor thanks to the energy of the group. Did not want to stop, neither my friends who were screaming for an encore, nor the group that stayed later than expected. So a big thank you. And thank you especially because the group knew to bend over backwards for me and my wife. Different styles, different requests for covers, and especially to have me on stage to play a little with them! Incredible, thank you again. My wedding would not have been as unforgettable without them."
"Damien and I thank you for our wedding !!! You are really a tremendous band, All our guests loved it !!"
"Thank you a thousand times for this fabulous concert at Domaine du Meunier! ... The dance floor was on fire!"
"Thanks to you 4 to enjoy each concert, it's never the same !!! We love what you do we will continue to follow you with great pleasure!"
"We had a great evening with you tonight! Nice discovery, thank you for this good musical moment, your band is great and your covers are excellent! Congratulations!"
"Frankly you were great last night in Parentis, France. A group with great musical and vocal quality. Bravo!"
"Great concert ... great musicians and beautiful voice of Alban ... for my part I loved ... go see them ... it's really worth it ... and we spend a very good evening."
