“…the most fun you can have without getting arrested” – The Times
…their own brand of exuberance and style to club nights and residencies at some of the leading UK nightclubs and bars. Having established successful ROCKAOKE NIGHTS in central London over the past 10 years at venues like Punk, Proud, AAA, and Cuckoo Club, they are currently storming monthly fridays at The Star of Kings, Kings Cross, Tooting Tram & Social and Radicals & Victuallers.
ROCKAOKE NIGHTS were launched in summer 2006 at Manumission’s Bar M in San Antonio, Ibiza, where IBIZA ROCKAOKE was resident over that summer. The first London ROCKAOKE NIGHT was at Zoo Bar on 29th march 2007.
Outside London, the band have played regular ROCKAOKE NIGHTS in Cardiff, Leeds, Southampton, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Belfast and of course their hometown Sheffield – where it all started in 2003.
ROCKAOKE have performed several times at the Cavern Club, Liverpool. Imagine jumping onstage with a live band to sing a Beatles song at the Cavern!
ROCKAOKE are regularly booked by the UKs biggest promoters, such as Guilty Pleasures, Propaganda and Club de Fromage, to bring added zest to already fruity nights.

rockaoke nights 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.
