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.

"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 were truly FANTASTIC! Without doubt one of the highlights of our wedding. Their set list was amazing - a great variety of songs for all ages and tastes. It was just one great song after another. Our dancefloor was never empty! I enjoyed working with Jerome - he was very professional and helpful throughout. Our guests absolutely loved the band and we had such great feedback. I would highly recommend Rock Empire and would encourage anyone to book them for your wedding or party. Thank you to the whole band! We loved you!"

"Rock Empire are AMAZING!! We were recommended the band by a close friend who is a wedding planner and the first thing he said was we would not regret booking the band and he was not wrong. As soon as I spoke to Jerome, I knew we had made the right choice he co uld not do enough for us and made the whole process very simple and helped with any requests that we had. On the day the band blew everyone away from the first moment at the end of dinner where everyone was singing and dancing on tops of tables and chairs to the last song the music was amazing. Everyone who attended the wedding has not stopped saying "The band were amazing". I would like to take this chance to say thank you so much Jerome and the band you were unbelievable and thank you for making the day even more memorable!!!"

"We wanted to say a massive thank you to Rock Empire for your incredible show at our wedding on Saturday. Having listened to you online, we were so excited for you to play at the wedding but we were both blown away by how great the sets were on the night. We absolutely loved the dancing, and I cannot count the number of people who came up to us both to tell us how brilliant the band was. Thank you also for learning our first dance request and performing it so beautifully, it was a really special moment and we’re so grateful to you all for making our wedding evening so brilliant."

"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 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, and neither did 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."

"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! With love, 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!"

"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!"
