Turning over a new leaf

If you’re viewing this, then welcome to our new website! Packed with information, news and (soon to be) events, we hope this provides all you need to know whether you’re interested in joining us or already a Rockiteer. Thanks to Deepest Media for an excellent job.

We hope you all had a good summer, and to celebrate the launch, feast your eyes on our latest Rock It! festival video from July 2017 courtesy of The Video Box TV . You can view all our festival videos here

 

Well done!

Well done to all our young Rockiteers who, after only 6 weeks, got on stage and performed for the delight of over 100 people at our first event of the new year. We went from rocked up electronica, through to modern indie and classic rock, all the way to thrash metal. All of it performed brilliantly.

Many thanks to all the Music Leaders and volunteers who worked together to help our new participants, and friends and family who supported the night. Everyone proved, once again, that music can inspire and bring people together in a wonderful way.

First band on brings a lot of pressure. They stormed it of course!

 

 

Our youngest Rockiteers proved that age is just a number:

Special mention to a certain bassist who performed with a broken collar bone!

Our fourth band brought us to life:

Purple Chains performed like seasoned professionals:

 

The final performers, Native Wasteland and Dante, featured Rock It! Music Leaders and volunteers and showed all our participants just what can be achieved!

 

 

Meet our new bands

It’s non-stop here at Rock It! HQ. Just in time for our first performance event of the year on 1st July where, not yet even named, we are getting bands up on stage for nerves, laughter and lots of sweet music – details here – we invite you to meet our new band members with this sample from our photo shoot courtesy of the brilliant Nik Bryant Photography.

The Sound of Music

Our 2016 recordings are here! All tracks were recorded with the ever successful producer/mixer Neil Treppas at Redbridge Recording Studios, who is currently celebrating his first track hitting the UK Top 3 and European Top 2!

Each track ou acheter du viagra en belgique represents 12 months of hard work from our Rockiteers, many of whom had never played cialis original 20mg instruments, worked in a band or composed music before, so please give a listen and let us know what you think.

Original tracks are on Soundcloud and can be listened to here:

Aurora Avenue – Finally Gone

Dante – Twelve Gauge Fist

Native Wasteland – Hanging On to You

Sprite Incident – Without You

Look out for an official Itunes release through Redbridge Recording Studios of not only our 2016 tracks, but also our 2015 tracks to be announced soon…

Rock It! lives on

Support for Rock It! is still at a high with Bolton’s recent Upload day-long festival promoting and raising funds for our project. Taking place at the Alma Inn live music venue and featuring Rock It! bands playing amongst a host of established artists from across the UK, Upload proved a great success. Thanks go to the event organisers, the venue, Carrs Pasties for providing sustenance, and all the bands who played on the day, including our very own Motorbreath and Native Wasteland.
