The Rockaoke Trilogy

IMAG2003Three in a row, Rockaoke once again entertained the Xmas party goers at the Hard Rock Cafe in Glasgow last Saturday and boy, did it rock.

Even though David Jones MD of Blue Juice events had difficulty in deciding which song he wanted to sing,


this did not stop the Hard Rock Xmas party bursting into song. With the tables set, the mic tested and the lights on the party went from strength to strength.


Not only did we have endless requests from the audience to get up on stage to become a Rock Star on the night, but we also had a request from a drummer to join in with the band and a mouth organ player performing Superstition by Stevie Wonder.


With 3 sets under Rockaoke’s belt, Singer’s galore and dancing till the early hours of the morning it was time to pack the van and begin the journey back home. Already planning Xmas 2016 – can’t wait.
