In keeping with great rock & roll, Lord Rochester embrace the simplicity of sound and song using the maraca powered shuffle of artists such as Bo Diddley, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Reed and Lonnie Mack to create great stripped back rock and roll.

Scotland’s best sounding (and best looking) rock and roll show have toured Japan, played all over Europe and the UK and toured their native Scotland from the Borders to Aberdeenshire and from the Central Belt to the Highlands and not forgetting the Shetland Islands.

Be it high profile music festivals or small intimate shows, the effect is the same; always entertaining and stylish, the trio (guitar, bass, spartan drum set and three voices) bewitch the audience, large or small.

Lord Rochester have also performed in session for the BBC, recorded at the famous Perrotti Studios in Gijon, Spain and provide the theme music for the ’Vic Galloway Show’ on BBC Radio Scotland.

Since they first got together in 2008 they have released a lot of vinyl and one CD (visit our shop below).


In a live setting the Lord Rochester trio require very little from the venue. One 3 pin 13 amp socket, three square yards of space and a reasonable supply of oxygen. They use two amps, two guitars, two maracas and two drums. Most importantly everybody sings and they do not have to use a PA.

Fundamentally Lord Rochester is one of the easiest bands to put on, they turn up on time, have a very short sound-check, have the best looking guitars and are decked out in tartan.

Hemsby Rock n Roll Show
Lord Rochester are a breath of fresh air ... Not since King Kurt have I heard a band with such a complete understanding of what constitutes rock n' roll, and then also had the ability to playfully subvert it, while remaining within the genre. ..
