Software Company + Woodstock = ??

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

What do you get when you cross a leading software company with Woodstock?  Ok, so there’s no punchline here – but I can speak from experience when I say that this combo results in a pretty awesome corporate karaoke party.

We had the privilege of playing (for the second time in three years) for a local company called TriTech Software Systems.  As we understand it, TriTech makes software that helps first responders get where they need to be on time – you know, saving lives and stuff.

What you may not know is that these folks love to party – and they’re great singers to boot.  Just check out the photos below (taken by the talented Rob Andrew) for a look at this Woodstock-themed karaoke event and give us a buzz if we can help make your corporate event one to remember.

Party Above Petco

When a law firm from Minnesota needed an unforgettable experience for their San Diego corporate event, guess who they called?  Yep.  Rock Out Karaoke. From atop the Diamond View Tower, we showed their guests from around the country how we fire up the party in San Diego.  The result was, well, pretty unforgettable.

By the way, the Diamond View Tower is a pretty incredible venue.  Views of the Coronado Bridge, Petco Park, downtown San Diego and beyond.  We can’t wait to play there again soon!

Summer Just Got Hotter

Memorial Day Sing Dance CrawlCan you feel the sizzle?  As if our fourth year at the San Diego County Fair wasn’t enough, we’ve added to the summer lovin’ by bringing live band karaoke back to the House of Blues for a post Comic Con bash that you don’t want to miss!

That’s right, Saturday, July 20 from 8-11pm, you get to take center stage with a live band and the legendary House of Blues.  Karaoke sign ups start at 7:30.  The list will surely fill up fast – so grab your costumes and get there early.  Show your Comic Con badge to get 15% off your food and non-alcoholic beverage tab, too!

Four Years!

Hard to believe it’s been almost four years we’ve been melting faces with you at the 710 Beach Club every Thursday.  It’s pretty amazing when we take a look back to early 2009, when the band was just five members: Colin and Rob (splitting lead guitar), John (rhythm guitar), Rob (bass), and Eric (drums).

Soon after we’d add the wild antics of Bass Dave (um…bass), Stoltz (stunt guitar is his official title), and Matt (drums, charming wit).  Then along comes Paulo (geetar), Bass Andy and Drums Shawn.  We can’t forget our incredible hosts: Carlos, Chris, Joe, Antonio!

Are we missing anyone?  Ah, yes–YOU, the singers!  You guys made all this possible, so a big thanks to anyone who has ever taken the stage (or come to see someone) with us.

Back in 2009, no one in the band had kids (that we knew of).  Now, we (the royal “we”) have four children (that we know of).  Since 2009, the song list has grown from about 60 tunes to our current list of about 200.  And we won’t even start to list the growing choreography we keep adding to many of our tunes (lots of kicking, jumping, laying on the ground, wiggling, pelvis-thrusting).

Well, this Thursday, March 7, 2013, we’ll be celebrating our four-year stay at the 710 Beach Club with a big ol’ freakin’ party.

It’s also with mixed emotions that we announce we’re taking a break from Thursday nights at the 710 for a bit, as the club works on going a new direction with their Thursday format.

Don’t think for a second that this is goodbye.  We’re actually excited at the chance to see what else is happening out there on Thursdays.  We’re working on securing a new Thursday night home soon, and you can continue to hang with us at JT’s Pub, the SD County Fair, weddings, company parties, and events around town.  Stay tuned for more news on our Facebook page and our email list.

We really cannot thank the 710 management for putting up…er…having us around for all these years, and for all the support — radio ads, drink specials, flyers, chalk boards.  Four years is a long time for any gig in this town.  And a big thanks to the true Oz behind us all:  Sound Guy John, who is the only person to be at every single 710 ROK show.  It’s a true honor to have someone as talented and experienced as Sound Guy John, who has run sound and toured with the likes of Metallica, and about every other band you can think of.

Help us end our four year run at the 710 Beach Club with a bang this Thursday night:  the party to take us home, send us on our way, and help us reach new heights.  Come early for free food, stay all night for drink specials and the ROK fun you’ve come to know and love.

High fives,

P.S.  Show us the love on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Yelp!

Holiday Karaoke Time!

Ahhh, October.  That time of the year when the phone starts ringing off the hook for holiday karaoke parties in San Diego.

We get excited about being the entertainment for your holiday party, mostly because you get so excited about us!

Here’s what some of you have said:

These guys were AMAZING at my buddy Marc’s Birthday Party!  They are a ton of fun and I can’t wait to check them out again. Marc’s party was a huge success, the best bday party ever, and it was thanks to ROK.  — Kimmy D, via

I was lucky to experience the awesome that is Rock Our Karaoke at the Yelp Unleashed party.  If I were having a wedding or some other party, I would definitely hire these guys to entertain my guests.  — Joe M, via

Love love love.  Would totally love to have these guys play at our wedding if I had a time traveling device.  — Jena O, via

We’ve had the pleasure of playing our unique live band karaoke show at tons of San Diego corporate events, weddings, birthday parties, and we keep getting calls to play more.
