About / Judges

The next Expertise Rocks! is on Wednesday 20th November 2019…

Following in the footsteps of such events as Law Rocks, Expertise Rocks takes place at The Water Rats. Bands formed of experts in their various fields will battle it out again in November, demonstrating their excellence on the stage to a panel of illustrious judges, and a sell-out audience.

Doors open at 6.45pm followed by the battle from 7.15pm. Each band plays a set of their choosing, usually covers. Bands are judged on performance, musicianship, entertainment, and all the skills that go to make up a good band. At the end of the night the winner is decided, and takes home the title of Expertise Rocks! Band of 2019!

Once again we will be raising money for The London Legal Support Trust. The London Legal Support Trust works to support law centres and legal advice agencies in London and the South East by providing them with grant funding alongside other forms of support.

Don’t forget to check the raffle page for all the prizes which will be on offer.


2019 Judging Panel…

  • Anna Mills– Alison’s a partner at former Law Rocks winners DLA Piper. Being a Law Rocks superfan, she’ll be judging to high standards. Our teams need to bring their A-game to impress her!
  • Chloe Gibbs –  Chloe is a member of the clerking team at Fountain Court Chambers. She also a DJ who’s played some of London’s most iconic underground spots. 2019 is set to be a big year for Chloe. She’s making her DJing debut at We Are FSTVL and on the white isle of Ibiza, but most importantly she’s joining the Expertise Rocks! judging panel.
  • Oliver Goldsmith Keating Chambers answer to the muppets ‘animal’, Ollie is a clerk by day and master rhythm keeper by night…
  • Bill Bordill – Director of the mighty Decipher Consulting and more importantly, head of the brass section for this year’s judging panel. Bill will surely provide his own take on our bands’ achievements…

No Smoke Without Fire

A merger of musical talent taken from WSP and Astute Fire.  Said to be putting together a great set list for this year’s Expertise Rocks! event, assuring us that there will be some amazing vocal talents put before the crowd.  Will they be able to win the votes of the judges and take home the trophy this year, or will last year’s winners come out on top again?

The Rocking Regulators

The Rocking Regulators are a group of current and former city professionals who meet from time-to-time for studio jam sessions, playing classic rock covers together. This year they will be undertaking their first public performance at Expertise Rocks! 2019. After all of this time in the studio, lets see how their voices come together for a brilliant display of cover music!

Third Rock

There’s a new band coming along this year in attempt to blow you away with their musicality and overall performance, with a varied set list that runs back to the 80’s! Will these new performers be able to come through and stomp out the competition? You’ll only find out at Expertise Rocks! 2019.

The Hefty Eyes

Back again for another bite at the cherry, the FTI Consulting‘s ‘Hefty Eyes’ are without doubt a contender for winning the title this year, with great musicians performing at the event. If you need a recap of what happened when Elvis entered the building last year, have a look here. Thanks to Alastair Farr and the team for getting involved in Expertise Rocks! this year.


Last years winners Peter and the Land Securities team return to Expertise Rocks! in 2019 to defend their title. Have a look at their winning performance from 2018 here. Will they be able to take the title twice in a row, or will one of the other competitors be able to outplay them?


A big thank you to this years sponsors
