freshers / refreshers / balls
ROCKAOKE is always a smash hit at student nights. The band love the high energy, fun loving audiences and the shows are always high octane events ranging from club nights in high street bars (be it Varsity or Ministry of Sound) to glitzy Oxbridge college balls. Re-bookings come as standard!
Regular freshers/refreshers events at the likes of Keele, Surrey and Edge Hill student union’s have been on a massive scale. The band’s september 2010 debut at Birmingham City SU attracted an audience of around 700 and a glowing review in the Daily Star. Other events include more intimate shows in student union bars across the UK. The band are virtually resident at The Edge in their home city of Sheffield.
Nights with the CHRIS MOYLES SHOW have taken ROCKAOKE to unis in Cardiff, Hull and Guildford and have further popularised the concept amongst the student fraternity.
“Rockaoke are the ultimate karaoke band! They are great for an interactive ice breaker during freshers week or just for a laugh any night of the year. Students love it! The band are always reliable, easy to deal with and excellent value for money.” – Jade Johnson, Entertainments Manager, University of Surrey

student night 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.
