Roxy Jukebox In The Spotlight

Last Updated: 19th December 2023

Make your celebration the talk of the town with Roxy Jukebox! With their rock n roll flair, effortless charisma and outstanding talent, this trio will transport you straight back to the good ol’ days. Performing all the greats from 50s floor-fillers to contemporary bops in their signature style, Roxy Jukebox has something for everyone to get down to. We caught up with the freshest rock n roll wedding band in the game to talk about their time in the biz and what to expect on your big day!




Who are Roxy Jukebox?

“We’re a Rock N Roll band who love the energy of our live shows and are currently taking bookings for this year and beyond. Our aim is to give clients the best possible experience from the moment we contact them 4 weeks before the event, right up to the last note played. We love all types of music, not just Rock N Roll.. we play all sorts of numbers that suit all ages and tastes. Our passion for 60s music means you’ll be guaranteed to have a few Beatles songs thrown in as we love the melodic and catchy harmonies. We are all very close friends and this shows in our performances.”


Give us a wow fact about you!

“We really got a buzz when we played a tour for the Formula E events back in 2022. We performed on some amazing stages in Monaco, Berlin and London. It was an incredible experience as we got to perform on the podiums and also did a live set in the executive suite. Everyone was loving it! In Berlin, I’m not sure if our bassist Paul was more excited about playing the gig or getting his fix of currywurst!”


What can a wedding couple/client expect when they book you?

“In the lead up to the event it is extremely important to the band that we get everything right for the clients. After all, for many clients it is the most special and memorable day of their lives. We work with you up until the day to make sure everything is perfect. As people we are very polite and fit into the environment that is presented to us. We’re not the sort of band that pulls up and acts like your stereotypical ‘rockstar’. We are here for our clients, are approachable, always happy to help on the night and can give an amazing, energetic performance that will have everyone up on the dance floor.”


Do you offer any optional extras? If so, what are they and why should people book them?

“We offer a fully manned DJ service in addition to our playlist DJ service. This option is great for people who want a more personal experience whilst the band are off stage, being able to take requests on the night and be around to get the party moving! We offer a range of afternoon performances from solo acoustic to a full acoustic trio. This option is ideal if you want to fill out your time before the evening guests arrive in those moments that have the potential to lull a bit. We can play you down the aisle too – just ask the team at Entertainment Nation and they’ll be more than happy to help with any specific enquiries, as are we. We offer late finishes, early starts, extra sax (this option rocks!!) … extra any instrument. Again don’t hesitate to ask as we can most likely arrange any request if it makes it right for you.”



 

Which song is your favourite to perform?

“This is a tough one to answer! We are masters of reading the vibe and get our kicks from each and every environment we are met with. We always find that when we’re learning a song for a client, no matter what the song is you gain an appreciation for the song whilst you’re learning it. We love and are big big fans of songwriters as well as performing artists. Songwriters such as Max Martin are just as influential as The Beatles in our eyes – I digress! I’d say right this second we love a bit of Sam Fender, however a firm favourite that we always pull out has to be ‘Twist & Shout’ by The Beatles – it is guaranteed to get the place rockin’!”


Which is the song you can always rely on to fill the dance floor?

“We tailor our sets to build and build as the night goes on. This approach is guaranteed to get everyone on the dance floor and the whole place is full of good vibes. ‘I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ always goes down a treat.”


Top requested song?

“I don’t think there is a gig that goes by where ‘Mr. Brightside’ isn’t shouted from the crowd at some point. We do a great version!”


Top choice for a first dance song?

“Each first dance really does vary for each client and we take lots of pride in each individual request/tastes. We’ve done Bob Marley, right through to George Ezra and even Take That. One of the songs that took me by surprise whilst learning is a song called ‘Best Part Of Me’ by Ed Sheeran. Love or hate him, he is an amazing songwriter. That song hit me hard!!”


Favourite sing a long song?

“It’s a tie between ‘500 Miles’ and ‘Park Life’! I’d say ‘500 Miles’ based on the amount of 50+ person congas we’ve managed to create.”



 

What inspired you to be musicians?

“Without a doubt the love for songs. We are listeners of music first but just love performing too just as much. Songs can inspire you in so many ways. Our love for music is what drove us to learn an instrument. Lyrics, melodies, rhythms, feelings, experiments… you can take a lot from a song!”


Do you get along with each other all of the time?

“We are like brothers. There’s nothing one of us can do or say that will change both our working relationship and as friends. The banter gets gnarly at times, but don’t worry as that’s mainly a 4am drive home vibe!”


Who has the most annoying habit and what is it?

“Everyone gets annoyed at me (Ali) because I never write out a message on our group chats and voice note everything. Some of my voice notes last about 10 minutes but could be written down and read by the group in 2.. whoops! I just love a voice note!”



 

What’s the best thing about being musicians?

“Making people happy”


… and what’s the worst?

“Not being able to order a Maccies at 2am in the morning as the service station you chose isn’t 24 hours. That or night time road closures!”


Most memorable moment of your career as musicians?

“Performing a Radio 1 Maida Vale live session.”


 

Weirdest moment/thing that’s happened at a wedding/event?

“A guest fully fell in a large pond, walked back in to the venue covered head to toe in moss/algae/pond water and just carried on with his night!”


If you weren’t musicians, what would you be doing?

“Researching how to become a musician haha.”


Top tip for anyone booking wedding/party entertainment?

“Try and embrace the whole experience as much as possible. Once the day is over it’s finished – so make it a good one to remember!”
