Here is our standard stage set-up.  Everything you see here  is included as standard apart from the stage, which in this case is approximately 5m wide x 4m deep.

What if the venue has a noise limit?
Many venues have a noise limit for the benefit of the local community and other residents and this will usually prevent the use of an acoustic drum kit.  But don't worry, we have this covered.  Our standard pricing includes for the use of a top of the range electronic drum kit and a 'silent stage' system so we are able to play at any volume required by the venue.  This set up gives a great live sound at any volume and is actually a good option for large venues as well.  All of the live videos on this website were recorded using this silent stage set up.

Where does the band perform?
We are based in  the East Midlands and perform throughout the UK.

Joanne, Wedding Reception
Rated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Wow.... What an amazing band!!Booked for our wedding on the 28th Dec 23. David’s communication was excellent working with us for the perfect playlist. And even learned a new song for us.  They had everyone dancing from start to finish, safe to say our feet were sore by the end of the night!  The band even came with their own photographer and sent over the photos and videos of the evening.  Would highly recommend, we and our guests had a great night. Can't thank you enough,  Twist of Rock. Loved you guysJo & Chris 🤙
Amanda, Wedding ReceptionRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Would highly recommend, amazing band! We hired them for our wedding and we are so glad we did!!! They did a really fantastic job learning our first dance song (which was a bit of an obscure choice!) And the vocals were just amazing. Only wish we could go and see them perform again.
Rebecca, Wedding ReceptionRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Had such a great night with Twist and Rock, they squeezed into the small area we had for them at our post wedding party and adjusted to our last minute location change! They were so professional and amazing! And all sounded even better than we could have imagined! The set up with the lights and everything made our party, and our personalised 1st dance was perfect!...
Steven, Corporate PartyRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Twist of Rock were amazing. Not only was the music performed to an incredibly high standard, they were the consummate professionals throughout the evening. They were very subtle in their set up and pack down and while being easily heard throughout the venue they did not overpower the room with their volume. I would highly recommend booking this band for any event, and I would not hesitate to book them again in future.
Carol, Corporate eventRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Booked for a corporate event, and we weren't disappointed.  Our guests were soon up dancing and kept the dance floor busy until the end!  Fully recommend, you won't be disappointed :-)
Louisa, Haloween PartyRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Twist of Rock were absolutely fantastic at our Charity Halloween Party. The band really got the party started and I’ve had so much brilliant feedback from our guests. Michelle was great on the vocals and brought so much energy to the room. Communication great throughout, no stress on the day with their super professional set up! Thanks so much.
Lisa, Wedding ReceptionRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Had a fantastic night with the band!  I really enjoyed the varied set list and our guests said how friendly and professional they were.
Julian, Corporate PartyRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️These beautiful people delivered beyond our expectations. The event was big Company party and the communications before the event were great. The while process of booking through to arrival was perfect. The band arrived immaculately turned out, on time and without any fuss despite the distance and the prevailing fuel shortage problems. The music was well chosen and delivered and everything went perfectly. True professionals, thank you! Jules
Kate, Birthday PartyRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️The band were really great. We hired the band for my husbands 60th birthday.  Great repertoire and we had many compliments about the music / band being really good. A different lady sang for our party (from the one we saw in one of their videos), and she was equally brilliant… obviously the band have a couple of singers they use all the time, so whichever singer you have, you can be guaranteed a fabulous sound.  We could not have been happier.  A very good experience dealing with David prior to the party.  I always received a prompt response to any of my questions. An added bonus was that his wife put our choices of music (for when the band had a break) on a USB stick and played it through there PA.  They also sent to us a video of them playing our “special” choice of music…. A lovely touch. Highly recommended.
Victoria, Wedding ReceptionRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️We booked Twist of Rock for our wedding in May 2023. They were incredible!!! Always difficult to know completely what to expect when booking a band without having seen them play before, but these four were so so good. Brilliant music, incredible vocals, great fun and had everyone (including those who said they wouldn't!) dancing. Highly recommend if anyone is considering them.
Michael, Officer's Mess PartyRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Excellent Band, very professional. Amazing song set.  Communications prior to the gig were great.
John, Officer's Mess PartyRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Dave and the band were great playing a mix of songs that had us up and dancing at our Rock Festival themed event. Would recommend them.
Louise, Corporate PartyRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Twist of Rock recently performed at our corporate event and they were absolutely brilliant. From first enquiry they were very professional and super organised and kept in great contact right up to the evening of the event. The music was varied and they really made sure that everyone was having a good time! Super friendly group of people. We cannot fault them and would definitely be keen to book again for future events. Highly recommended .
Simon, Wedding ReceptionRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Excellent rock band covering many decades. Take real pride in what they do. Will be booking them again for my 40th
Karen, Birthday PartyRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Wow, Wow, Wow.  What an amazing band to have found.From the initial call with David, right through to the last song, what an amazing professional band.David and the team, met my brief perfectly.  In fact, they went above and beyond for us. We had a Hawaiian theme and they decorated their speakers in grass skirts and flowers around the staging.  All band members embraced the Hawaiian theme with loud shirts and bright colours.It was the little touches, like they sent my husband a birthday card and arrived before my first guests arrived, even though that meant being there a couple of hours before.  It was the small touches, that made us so grateful and made an 50th Birthday celebration perfect.  They were also able to meet my brief of 3 sets at 45 minutes each.  Some of the other bands we spoke to, were very inflexible.Music was all in tune and the lead singer was amazing, fantastic vocal range.  We love the song choices, but the last set just hit the mark to end a perfect evening.  At one point the singer joined the guests on the dance floor, and we literally thought we were at some A lister rock concert.  Amazing!No problems with the sound, and their equipment worked flawlessly throughout.All our guests commented on what a fantastic job they had done for us.Unlike other bands, what was nice, is that they had 1 price, that included everything, music, interval music, lights, travel. Nothing was too much trouble and David’s wife (so sorry I cannot remember your name) was able to support during the intervals and was out front, to help with turning the interval music up and down.Would definitely book again as loved every minute of their performances and professionalism.Keep rocking out and thank you once again.  Karen & Paul x
Radia, Wedding ReceptionRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Twist of Rock played beautifully at our wedding during May 2022. The band were so friendly, really organised, kept in contact (despite us not being so organised!). I felt like they really go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. Everyone had a fantastic time at the wedding reception, and David is still sending us nice clips they have of the night, which is a really nice touch! The singer Finola was also fantastic (as well as the rest of the band!). Can't fault them, I would certainly recommend these guys!! Thank you for creating such a fun night for us, we wish you all the best!
Rachel, Wedding ReceptionRated ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️Amazing group, performance and personality second to none!  Communication before the day was excellent. They were a fantastic - everyone was brilliant, friendly, talented and made our night special! Thanks to each of you xx
