LC Rocks is one of the most accomplished and sought-after Austin cover bands.

Specializing in concert-style ‘80s rock music, we also play tunes by ‘70s bands and contemporary artists.
If you like Bon Jovi, Motley Crue, Journey, Led Zeppelin or Van Halen and are looking for a kick-ass Austin cover band to play at your club, private party, corporate event – Call (512) 953-1711 for availability and booking information.
Texas Cover Band for ‘80s Rock ‘n Roll Groups
A premier Austin cover band, LC Rocks can play a broad range of music ranging from ‘70s and ‘80s rock hits by Aerosmith and the Doobie Brothers, to ‘90s tunes from Metallica and Tom Petty. Fans claim they could be the best Journey cover band ever. It’s hard to tell the difference between the original album cuts and LC’s live performances of “Don’t Stop Believing” or “Separate Ways”. [Interestingly, Journey also began as a cover band, called the Golden Gate Rhythm Section back in 1973, started by former members of Frumious Bandersnatch and Santana.]

Don’t miss seeing your own local, lovely ladies invited to the stage to shake it during LC’s infamous version of Motley Crue’s “Girls, Girls, Girls”, and watch as a lucky girl gets an onstage guitar lesson during Ted Nugent’s “Strangehold”. LC Rocks brings a unique sound, partying atmosphere, and ‘80s live concert-style performance to rock classics, transporting the audience back to the time they first heard a song, and bringing back all those great memories! Think about where you were (and who you were with) when you first heard Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls”. [No, we’re not telling!!!]
History of Cover Bands – Austin, Houston, Dallas TX
The music of the greatest bands (be it rock, funk, disco, or other) lives far beyond their active performance careers. There won’t be any more Elvis Presley, Beatles, or Nirvana concerts. But thanks to highly capable Austin cover bands, cover acts, and tribute bands around the world, we can still enjoy electrifying live concerts featuring the music of our favorite rock ‘n roll icons.
Austin is deservedly acclaimed as the Live Music Capital of the World, boasting numerous musical groups of every genre and several great Austin cover bands. This artistic abundance extends throughout Texas to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Corpus Christi and beyond. Texas has made an enormous contribution to the history of Rock Music.
Blind Lemon Jefferson back in the ‘20s, Roy Orbison and Buddy Holly in the ‘50s, and Janis Joplin and ZZ Top in the ‘70s are some of the awesome singers and musicians who have called Texas home. There have also been some notable Texas natives like Steve Miller, Boz Scaggs, and Meat Loaf who moved west to hit the big time. And no piece on Austin music would be complete without mentioning the immortal Stevie Ray Vaughan and his band Double Trouble, whose unique ‘80s blues rock sound, guitar virtuosity and thundering rhythm section have inspired countless tribute acts and cover bands.
