about rockaoke – how we rock & roll
…are all great musicians, who play well together and have a massive repertoire of songs. But just as importantly, ROCKAOKE have great enthusiasm for what they do and their skill is in making every event a totally memorable, rewarding and entertaining spectacle for participants and audience alike.
People talk about ROCKAOKE gigs for weeks afterwards, because they are engaged and involved and have photos/videos on their phones to prove it…! Consequently, the band are a big hit at staff parties/conferences, product launches and as part of experiential marketing campaigns.
“The band make you feel like a proper rockstar. They don’t make you sound like one but they make you feel like one.” – Chris Moyles
what we bring to the party
A professional ROCK band! These are the guys who play the instruments. Generally guitar, bass and drums and occasionally keyboards. All really good musicians with an extraordinarily large repertoire of songs. And most importantly, all really nice guys who enjoy welcoming anyone on to the stage and making them feel like a ROCK Star!
Fronting the show will be one of our amazingly and uniquely talented singer/MCs. Male or female, they are the perfect hybrid of a rock band singer/front person and a karaoke host. The perfect party starter – guaranteed to make you want to get out of your seat on to the dance floor and from there on to the ROCKAOKE stage! What’s more, they will of course sing lead/backing vocals as and when required. Try and stop them…!
We provide lyrics for all the songs, usually on iPad these days. Everyone knows how to use an iPad so they work really well. It’s not quite the same as karaoke where the words follow the music, because the band don’t play along to karaoke tracks – it’s all LIVE! So there is a bit of reading/swiping involved, but it’s straightforward enough and the band/MC are always on hand to help out.
We can also link lyrics to big screens if you want to encourage audience participation at your events.
We bring song request sheets (which can be branded for your event) and pens. There are usually over 200 songs to choose from. People sign-up on the night by picking up a song request sheet, writing their name and selecting a song, and handing it in to the band / MC.
It really is dead easy. ROCKAOKE are a rock band who invite members of the audience to sing with them. There is never a shortage of people keen to jump on stage and sing with a LIVE band.
Around 200 songs can be chosen from and lists are made available at rockaokenights.com. Would-be participants are asked to provide their name(s) and select a song. When their turn comes, singers are invited to join the band onstage. Lyrics are provided on a screen but the music is “LIVE” – so no karaoke machines or bouncy balls 🙂
