Entertaining the Entertainers

"I'd have thought 63 caps and 30 goals for England was living the dream enough" - The Sun on Alan Shearer performing with ROCKAOKE

Of course, ROCKAOKE's work with Chris Moyles and Chris Evans has led to them sharing the stage with the odd big name celebrity. But there's much more...

For 3 of the last 4 years the band have been invited to play at the TOP GEAR LIVE aftershow party - a very private affair for the presenters and their inner sanctum. Sorry - no photos or videos. So you will have to rely on your imagination to visualise Jeremy Clarkson blasting out searing versions of ALL RIGHT NOW and CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF YOUR LOVE, and high-octane re-workings of pop standards “MUSTANG SALLY” and “DON’T STOP ME NOW” featuring both Clarkson and James May on drums and rock-solid Richard Hammond on the bass. AMAZING...!

In april 2012, ROCKAOKE were the headline act at the birthday party of Pink Floyd guitarist DAVID GILMOUR's wife POLLY SAMSON. Again, no photos - sorry! A star-studded array of guests (including Ringo Starr...!!!) watched David's band open the show playing songs from his "On An Island" album plus a few Pink Floyd oldies, before ROCKAOKE took to the stage giving the Gilmour family and guests the opportunity to steal the show...!

This followed on from a stellar 2011 during which the band rocked the Mercedes Brawn Xmas party, persuading Michael Schumacher to close the night alongside Nico Rosberg and Ross Brawn belting out an epic Bohemian Rhapsody. There was also Denise Welch’s Ice Fantasy Ball, The Pride of Britain Awards after show, and two nights as the official VIP rockers at the Foo Fighters gigs at Milton Keynes Bowl.

ROCKAOKE were the main attraction at Newcastle and England legend Alan Shearer's 40th birthday, BBC Radio 6 presenter Shaun Keaveny's 40th birthday, and at the weddings of INBETWEENERS star Simon Bird and ex-Hollyoaks actor Matt Littler.

ROCKAOKE have performed with a host of top celebrities at other events like:

  • nights with the CHRIS MOYLES SHOW;
  • IBIZA ROCKS - Ricky Wilson singing I PREDICT A RIOT;
  • KERRANG AWARDS 2008 Aftershow - Oli Sykes singing WONDERWALL;
  • The BOAT SHOW - Olly Murs singing SUPERSTITION;
  • V 2007 (VIRGIN RADIO VIP area) - with James Nesbitt, Christian O'Connell and Al Murray;
  • Celebrity ROCKAOKE @ MOHO LIVE, Manchester (featuring soap stars from CORONATION STREET, HOLLYOAKS and EMMERDALE).

ROCKAOKE gives even the biggest superstars that unique opportunity to fulfil their rock star dreams!
