23 June 2017 – Time flies when you’re having fun. Time also flies when you’re busy…..   We’re definitely enjoying both of those, so please accept our apologies for the lack of news recently.

We’ve been keeping ourselves busy – our residency at the world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool has gone from strength to strength. You can now visit us on that iconic stage most Friday and Sunday nights from 10pm until the early hours. In between those slots we’re still performing our regular gigs in venues large and small, from weddings to festivals and everything between.

We’ve been working with some amazing people too, last year we were honoured to be chosen to back the legend that is Micky Dolenz of The Monkees during his UK gigs.

You can keep tabs on what we’re up to on our Facebook Page (@TheRockitsUK) and if you’d like to discuss booking us for your event please Contact Us today.

29 August 2012 – Beatle Week is over. What a year.
