EXCITING NEWS……! ROCKAOKE has been featured in the latest edition of Heatworld as one of the top ‘quirky karaoke’ nights around.
“Get the goss on the new craze for quirky karaoke”
If you prefer your sing-along experience with added air guitar, this is probably the closest you’ll get to joining a rock band. The on-hand pro musicians promise they’ll make you feel like you are in a band, whether you’re rocking out to Arctic Monkeys or AC-DC.
They’ve entertained everyone from James Corden to Jeremy Corbyn (yes, really) so you’ll be in superstar company. And as well as private events and one-off appearances, they have regular gigs in both London (various locations) and their hometown of Sheffield in the Mulberry Bar.
Kaiser Chiefs performed at the Isle of Wight Festival on the Old Mout Cider Tent stage. Ricky put on an energetic show and got up close to the fans. The band were among the acts entertaining fans at the music event this weekend.
Look out for next month’s issue of Cosmopolitan because Rockaoke get a mention! It may just be a quick little snippet on page 17, but a shout out in the world’s leading women’s magazine is never to be sniffed at.
According to new scientific research, Karaoke nights out are actually good for your health, writes The Telegraph Science Correspondent Richard Alleyne.
Researchers found that moderate drinking with a good friend helped improve cardiovascular health with singing also helping to reduce stress.
While heavy drinking is associated with a greater risk of a stroke, light to moderate drinking has been linked to a lesser risk of stroke and coronary heart disease.
Having the social support of a good friend seems increase the positive effect that moderate drinking has on your health.
“In short,” said Professor Takeshi Tanigawa, at Ehime University Graduate School of Medicine in Japan. “Moderate to light alcohol consumption with high social support is good for your health. Drinking with a good friend appropriately makes you feel happy and healthy.
“So drink with good friends for health.”
Prof Tanigawa also recommended karaoke bars as one way for business persons to cope with stress. “Singers use deep breathing, which is good for the nervous system,” he said.
“After singing, they usually receive applause. It is a good kind of social support, and helps in the face of adverse occasions or stressful events.”
The study on 19,356 men aged 40 to 69 found the health benefits of light to moderate drinking are more pronounced in men with greater social support.
The study, published in Alcoholism: Clinical & Experimental Research, also found that those with low social support had less healthy lifestyles such as physical inactivity, no job and fewer opportunities for medical checkups.
Heavy drinking was found to be risky irrespective of the level of social support.
Professor Hiroyasu Iso, the study’s co-author from Osaka University, said: “We found the reduced risks of total stroke, ischemic stroke, and total cardiovascular disease associated with light to moderate drinking were more pronounced in men with high social support, probably due to avoidance of unhealthy behaviours and enhancement of stress buffering.”
