With tattoos and clad in leather, the Rock side are presented as typical hard rock musicians. The King and Queen are animatedly performing their number into hand held mikes whilst the bishops, knights and pawns are all strumming guitars. The knight is notably enthusiastic in his stance whilst the castle adeptly beats the rhythm on the drums. Serenely playing their instruments and dressed in their white suits complete with red dicky bow ties, the stylish Jazz band look every inch the part. They are lead by a guitar playing king and a voluptuous queen on vocals. The traditional jazz instrument, the saxophone, is displayed by the bishop whilst the Knight plucks his double bass. The castle beats on the drums whilst the pawns are clarinet players.
