About / Judges

The next Expertise Rocks! is on Wednesday 28th November 2018…

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 6.30pm 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 2018!

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


2018 Judging Panel…

  • Anthony Carroll – Front man for one of the leading NuMetal groups in the UK, Anthony’s an old hand at this. His band have even been reviewed by John McDonnell for the Guardian (we don’t think it’s *that* John McDonnell).
  • Nikki Link & Katie Stephenson – the two halves of the Irwin Mitchell band, Nikki and Katie have won our big brother competition, ‘Law Rocks’ on several occasions.
  • Mike Redmond – Mike’s the third but by no means the least of our judges – BD lead at ‘Sense Studio’ by Day, he’s judgmental by night…

So much talent all under one roof on 28th November at The Water Rats – you’d be mad to miss it!


Tickets cost £15 and can be purchased through this link. Hurry though, they are selling fast!

This year for the first time we have corporate packages available. For more information get in touch.




The Hefty Eyes…

Back again for another bite at the cherry, the FTI Consulting‘s ‘Hefty Eyes’ are without doubt a contender for the crown this year. Thanks to Alastair Farr and the team for getting involved.

Dr J and the Fog

Will this actually be the name of this year’s band? From Advanced Discovery the team can guarantee some unbelievable vocal talents from Dr J. Close contenders in past years, will this lot win in 2018?


Peter and the Land Securities team took the prize last time (was it 2016? We can’t quite remember!) – so will they keep the trophy this year? Will they even find the trophy after their office move… Come along on 28th Nov to find out.


We’re delighted to announce the kind support of some of London’s most generous organisations – please show them your support in return…
