On the 27th October, Rockaoke were called upon by Ad2SF to help find the most talented event organisers/rock stars at their 2015 Agency Olympics! The competition was held at the O2’s Brooklyn Bowl down in London and saw events professionals from across the board all singing their hearts out for the top spot. Agencies taking part included Bluehat Group, TBA, George P Johnson, CWT, RPM, Chillisauce, Grass Roots, BrandFuel, TRO and Chew.
Adding a bit of class to proceedings was ’80s TV presenter Pat Sharp, our host and commentator for an evening of challenges that also included a bowling tournament and chicken wing eating contest – whew! The venue wasn’t bad either as Brooklyn Bowl were kind enough to lay on an open bar and buffet spread with fried chicken, pulled pork sliders and chilli chips.
It was a tough final call, but the folks at TRO managed to take home the gold and be crowned this year’s Agency Champions/Rockaoke Superstars. Click here to view the full C&IT article.

On September 29th 2015 the Revolution Bar in Brighton was abuzz with labour officials all eager to take a break from hardcore politics and release their inner rock gods; an opportunity that our live-karaoke band was very glad to provide! The likes of Andy Burnham and Sharon Hodgson got up to sing with the guys before man-of-the-hour Jeremy Corbyn arrived to deliver his speech and then have a little dance to F**k You by Cee Lo Green. All in all, top night!
