Great night last Saturday at the Hard Rock Cafe Xmas party in Glasgow. Thanks to all the staff for making the event such a fantastic night and more importantly to all who jumped on stage and became a rock star overnight, you know who you are…. We applaude you.
We are all looking forward to this Saturday for our next installment of Rockaoke performing at the Hard Rock.
Great food, great music, great entertainment – what more can you ask for?
Last Sunday night, Rockaoke played at the Fox @ Excel in London for the charity “Fight for Sight”.
It never seases to amaze me how generous people can be when asked to give to such worthy causes. Not once was there a shortage of individuals prepared to climb on stage with the band, place the mic in their hand and live the dream right from kick off at 19:30 through till midnight.
Here we see Jon and Matt proudly showing off their “Fight for Sight” T shirts. Dan in the background trying to get in on the act.
Dan is the man, strutting his stuff, and as the song sheets came flooding in, the money raised continued to grow. Songs on the night included Angels by Robbie Williams, Superstition by Stevie Wonder, Hey Jude by the Beatles and Rolling in the Deep by Adele – they would all have been proud.
Just wanted to share a few images to provide a flavour of the recent P.A. Showcase we attended in Aberdeen.
The event was held at the Aberdeen Convention Centre and over 120 companies exhibited thier products, including Event companies, Venue’s, Travel companies, Golf courses, Distilleries, Spa’s, Health and Beauty the list was endless.
It was a great opportunity to meet with the many PA’s who attended and it was also fantastic to see a few brave individuals who picked up the mic and lived the dream by accepting the invitation to be lead vocal with the band Rockaoke.
Thanks to Harry, Emma and Jon for travelling all the way from Sheffield to provide a taste of what the Rockaoke experience is all about.
