Barnes Rock organises live music events in South West London.

Dance to popular rock, pop, soul and blues numbers played by well known rock stars from the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s and local musicians and their bands.

Our principal venues, London Welsh Rugby Club (Old Deer Park, Richmond), Barnes Rugby Club (near The Wetlands Centre in Barnes), Teddington Constitutional Club and The Barnes Home Guard Association in Sheen. All have large dance floors.

Regular Barnes Rock bands include The 60s Allstars, The Persuaders, The Robin Bibi Band, The John Warwick Band, The Cream of Hendrix, The Crawdaddies and The Sharpees and new bands are found on a regular basis that fit our strict criteria of excellence. Musicians associated with the bands above and with Barnes Rock include John Dee and Alan Warner guitarists from the Foundations, Mick Avory, drummer from the Kinks, Alan Lovell, guitarist from The Swinging Blue Jeans and Del Mandel, guitarist with George Harrison, vocalist Phil May from the Pretty Things, John Dominic of the Bo Street Runners, and Richard Hudson (“Hud”), drummer with the Strawbs.

We also put on other great bands, always with musicians of great pedigree …. always music to dance to all evening!

In  2017, we continue our regular every 2nd Tuesday of the month (occasionally first Tuesdays instead) with The 60s Allstars, usually at London Welsh RFC 187 Kew Road, Richmond or sometimes at Barnes RFC near The Wetlands Centre or The Home Guard Club in Richmond Park Road, Sheen.

On most fourth Tuesdays of each month, we put on other quality bands. In January and March 2017 we put on Steve Summers‘ The Cream of Hendrix and in February 2017, we put on Birdwood. On Good Friday (April 14th) we presented the Trembling Wilburys at London Welsh RFC where we also presented The Crawdaddies on Tuesday 25th April.

On Friday November 11th 2016 also at Old Deer Park we put on The Rollin’ Stoned the UK’s finest Rolling Stones tribute band and everyone danced non-stop! Earlier in 2016 (also on Good Friday), we put on The Trembling Wilburys at London Welsh RFC, Old Deer Park, 187 Kew Road, Richmond

In the winter, we stage events early on Sunday evenings (6pm to 9.15pm) usually with Robin Bibi, Del Mandel and Andrew Heart and guest singers.
