do something funny for money
If you want to inject some real fun into your fundraiser then look no further than ROCKAOKE. The band have headlined many a successful event for non-profit organisations including Comic Relief, Crisis and Fight for Sight, all in the name of charity.
The crowning achievement of these: two incredible nights of roll n’ roll at the Empire Music Hall, Belfast in aid of the Alzheimer’s Society, the UK’s leading support and research charity for people living with dementia, their families and carers. ROCKAOKE history was made here when The One And Only Chesney Hawkes jumped onstage to belt out his number one hit from the 90s.
ROCKAOKE have played a part in some great events over the years. Here are a few examples.
ROCKAOKE @ CRISIS
ROCKAOKE have been working with CRISIS, the national charity for homeless people, for many years.
Each year, between Christmas and New Year, the band head down to the Crisis shelter in London to spread a bit of seasonal cheer. Singing with a live band is always a big hit with the guests at the shelter and it is always one of the band’s favourite gigs of the year.
They usually find themselves in good company too. One year they arrived to find a young ginger haired lad on stage before them. They congratulated him on his performance, which was great! Little did they realise it was an as yet unknown Ed Sheeran!

charity event testimonials
Rockaoke were amazing especially Kirsty for calming me down and assuring me that people would get up and sing. Thank you for the most incredible night.
Thanks so much to you guys for putting on a wicked night of entertainment. You guys are great party starters and entertainers, and would happily recommend and book you again. 🙂
The party was AMAZING… I have had so many comments about how awesome you guys were… it was exactly what I wanted! I loved seeing everyone enjoying themselves so much and the smiles on everyones faces were the best birthday present I could have asked for!
just wanted to say how much we enjoyed Saturday night!! it was better than we could have imagined and made our whole hen weekend!! will be recommending you guys to everyone!!!!!!
Wow, what a night! Just wanted to drop you a note to say a huge huge thank you. Everyone is raving about you all! The stage looked amazing and you’re such great musicians. Matt you were a fab MC and also so very helpful at the set-up stage. I knew it could be a great night, but you all made it one of our most memorable parties – ever! Thank you once again for making everyone’s night/week/year/decade….!
Thank you so much for last night, I see a lot of sore heads today so that is a sign of a good night.
The London Cocktail Club have had the pleasure of working together with the Rockaoke team for over a year. To quote Time Out they are one of “The best wtf experience in London!!”. There are few people who manage to create such an amazing rock n’roll atmosphere. Guests always leaving the bar shouting “See you next time!!” . They are amazing for business and a very talented, golden team who are all great to work with!
I have worked with Rockaoke for over 6 years now and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a fun and energetic experience to suggest to their clients or for private parties, etc. They are always on hand and ready to come up with ideas that fit in with most themes but the fact that they can tweak their line-ups to fit in to most spaces (and budgets) make them a godsend.
I’ve used then numerous times over the years but great examples of how they have worked for events are when we used them for our Members Halloween night (Scaryaoke) – full band set up for 120 guests with Mat comparing and whipping the crowd in to a frenzy dressed as a well fed vampire. I’ve also used them really well in a stripped back format for clients like Google and Undercurrent, where they set up in a 2 piece acoustic style format for 35 guests (Acoustaoke). They have also worked well for weddings and once at a Barmitzvh (which was awesome!).
They are great guys, there is not a thing they cannot do and I would not hesitate to recommend them for any type of event. Except a funeral I suppose.
