Rockhoppaz are a five piece band comprising four semi professional musicians and a dedicated sound engineer. We play rock and pop covers (see below) from the 1950s to the present day and can therefore bring a wide range of live music to suit a range of ages and events. As musicians we are: 'Scottish John' on keyboards and vocals, 'Big Ben' on bass, Ian 'Tef' on drums/ percussion and 'Jim' playing guitar and vocals. We are a fun loving outfit and our aim is to make your event memorable and enjoyable for all. Rockhoppaz will provide a dedicated PA system and backing music when the band are not performing together with a range of lights and effects to add atmosphere to your event.
We have played at weddings, corporate events, birthday parties, festivals and many pubs/ clubs and we will willingly share our experiences with you to help with your planning and organisation. Also given an appropriate lead in time we can learn bespoke songs for your events and/or dedicate these as you may wish.
