More information about Rock Empire

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.

View all of our France-based wedding bands ➡️

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.

"PERFECT!!!!!! We chose Rock Empire to participate in our wedding cocktail on the Île de Ré. What a fantastic band. Their kindness, dynamism and setlist is incredible. Our guests loved the band and so did we. We could not hope better. Rock Empire were able to perfectly animate the cocktail from one end to another for more than 2 hours by moving the guests and reserving even surprises. Our guests have 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 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 your eyes closed and I recommend Rock Empire without any hesitation."

"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."

"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!"
