Having played in many of the top rock ‘n’ roll locations, the band members have played on the rockin’ 50’s scene for many years. Their 4 albums – Rocket Trip, Crazy Party,  Rockin & Flying & Henhouse Riot – incorporate many well known rock ‘n’ roll songs from the 50s together with some lesser known ones – each played in their own individual Rooster style.

Rockin' The Joint

Rockin' the Joint are a 3 piece comprising members who have come together from other long standing premier rock and roll and jive bands.

Between them they bring a wealth of talent and experience playing in the UK and overseas.

Mark Keeley's Good Rockin' Tonight

The band is fronted by the very talented and dynamic Mark keeley (lead vocals/Guitar/Piano) and they have even had TV appearances over the years as well.

This brilliant four piece is made up of Mark Keeley, John O’Malley, Kurt Simms & Daz Leggatt.

The Mee Kats

The Mee Kats started life in 2010 in NE England to perform 1950's rock n roll and rockabilly music. This rockin'
trio was developed by lead singer Colin Mee, who is a veteran of the UK rockin' scene, having played drums in well known rockabilly band the Sure Shots from 1984-1993. Colin is also lead singer of rockabilly trio The Skip Rats since 1987.

The other band members are Rob Brindley on lead guitar who hails from sunny Stoke who started his rockin' career with his band Ignition.

Glenn Darren & The Krew Katz

Glenn will also be our compere for the weekend at Blackpool in 2024 and in attendance throughout the whole weekend, and we are sure he will be delighted to share stories with you all.

The Kingcats


This outstanding band is making a very rare appearance in Blackpool in 202 and this is one gig you do not want to miss!

This Five Piece band loves the music they play, and this is highly demonstrated when they are on the stage. The Kingcats know well how to keep a dance floor filled, in fact the only complaint might be from the dancers wanting a break.

There sound takes you back to the Sun Studio era, the Kingcats are not just a 50’s cover band, from from it. Their delivery of Elvis, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent classic to name but a few, as well as tracks of the lesser known artists of the time will have you thinking you are in Memphis 55’ but what sets The Kingcats apart is that when they strike up there self-penned numbers you will not be able to tell the difference.

No wonder this band is known as one of the hottest rock & roll bands around.

Dance Tutors

We are pleased to announce that Alistair Fitzgerald from Strictly Jitterbug will once again be in attendance throughout the whole weekend at Blackpool. Join in the lessons from Alistair at Blackpool & your lives could be transformed forever. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate dancer Alistair will teach you to move to the music.
